    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    I've run out of run and I need to clear out a couple of cabs, so I'm letting these go for cheap.

    1. Ampeg Classic Series SVT 210HE 2x10 cab SOLD

    GREAT condition - rarely gigged (I can only think of one gig in which I've used it). 2x10 enclosure with an adjustable tweeter.

    According to the Ampeg site:

    Weight: 60 pounds
    8 ohms
    Program Handling: 400 watts
    RMS Handling: 200 watts
    Sensitivity: 97dB
    Frequency response: 50 Hz - 18 kHz

    Comes with an ugly yellow vinyl cover, but it's a cover nonetheless.

    Asking $175.00 plus shipping


    2. SWR Henry 8x8 (NOTE: This is local pickup/delivery in Colorado only. It's too heavy and too much of a pain for me to ship)

    Here's the deal - this one's been around the block and has some wear in the carpet, especially on the bottom. I affixed some carpet patches on the corners on the bottom to cover some exposed wood and they've worked fine.

    All of that said, it works great EXCEPT for one issue: One of the 8s needs re-coning. For this kind of price, you can get the 8 re-coned and stil come out WAY ahead.

    This is a 4ohm cab that is VERY punchy and is a slapper's dream.

    Info from SWR's site (minus the hype):

    Carpeted 8x8 speaker enclosure with tweeter. Tilt back design for easy transportation.

    (3) Front Tube Ports
    Black Carpeting with Stack Lock Corners
    Chrome Stamped Steel Vibration-Free Grill
    Metal Input Panel with Heavy-Duty Attenuator
    1/4" In/Out
    Tilt Back Design
    Recessed Top Handle
    Heavy-Duty Caster Wheels
    (8) 8" Custom SWR drivers (these are Celestions)
    480 Watts RMS
    4 Ohms
    23.25"W x 36.5"H x 18.5"D
    WEIGHT
    100 lbs.

    The specs above are applicable to the older models, such as the one I have. This cab also has an adjustable tweeter, but I do not know if it is the "Le Son TLX-1 Piezo tweeter" which is stated on the site for the new models.

    Asking $250.00 - again, this is a local sale only. I can deliver it if you are in Colorado and aren't too far away or if you can meet me half way.


    As for pics, I have a pic of the 2x10, but not of the 8x8. Should you need pics, I will gladly get them for you.

    If interested, feel free to PM me or e-mail me.

    As for trades, well, I'm open to suggestions, but I'm not interested in any more cabs. Feel free to float something by me. You never know.

    If you can't sell the Henry and decide to ship, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I'd be willing to pay full shipping and handling charges to zipcode 45251 (Southwest Ohio).

    Good luck with selling these cabs, great prices.

    The Ampeg is sold, but the SWR is still available for local sale.
