Hi there bass people, a lurker for around a year and a first time poster here! I would like to discuss the options I have for a 4x10 cab for two reasons: a) to get some insight on what cab to choose and b) to pass the time while I wait for 'my cab' to appear on the used market. So, here's what I am looking at. I am in the middle of upgrading my gear. My last rig was Ashdown MAG stuff with a ported 4x10 cab and an MAG amp + BDDI. I was not very happy with the setup and was really hoping for something more punchy and tight especially when played with a pick. I then had an opportunity to play with a friend's SVT-410HE + BDDI and a power amp and you guessed it - fell in love with the tone. So, I am now looking for a cab (please don't focus on the amp business for now, going to use my Sansamp + a power amp for the time being). Allright, I know that by now, someone is thinking about replying with 'buy an Ampeg, then' - Trust me, I would! The thing is, where I am from (Finland), there is not that much Ampeg stuff lying around in the used market (that is, it either gets sold very fast or people are hanging onto their old USA made ones *very* tight). So, I have decided to wait around for an SVT-410HE, or a cab of similiar type to appear on the used market and then make my move. These are the cabs I am thinking of at the moment: Ampeg SVT-410 HE EBS Classic Line 410 Orange OBC410 Ashdown ABM 410H How do you feel these compare? For what I know, they are all sealed cabs and should deliver a punchy tone, am I right? It is to be noted, that for where I live, I can't really go into a store to try these - so it's essentially a "never try before you buy" sort of deal. And yeah, vintage-ish looks are a huge + here. Any advice or just plain banter to get the GAS flowing is very appreciated.
