Getting a Berg NV610 tomorrow!

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by theleveebreaks, Jun 8, 2007.

  1. So it appears I have the 208th NV610 made. Not a collectors item by any means, but it's still fun to know.

    What a great cabinet, I don't think I can honestly say it enough.

    Do you think Jim will ever release a NV118? I am gassing for an NV215 to go along with the 610 but how cool would a 118 be?

    I have NV610 #136 I think. Bought used about 2 years ago.

    Are all of the NV series cabs numbered in sequence, or are they numbered according to specific cab?

    In other words, is my NV425 @ 425A0102 the 102nd in the NV line, or the 102nd 425 made?

    Thanks, and sorry for the hijack.

    Hope you hang on to that NV, don't make the same mistake others have...

    I have a question for the NV610 users:
    I'm considering one. I'm using a Traynor YBA200: would that be a good match for the 610? My understanding is that the cab is power hungry, but that might have been in reference to the older ones. anyway, I appreciate your opinions.

    I haven't seen the cab described as power-hungry, at least relative to its size. I know that one TBer, anderbass, has used one with an Ampeg V4 (100 tube watts). And the NV610 has been described as an excellent match for tube heads in general.

    I wouldn't call them power hungry at all- they are not the most efficient cabs on the market, but have a pretty high efficiency for a sealed cab- higher than an Ampeg 810 I believe. I've never had to turn my Mesa 400+ above 2 on the Master to be heard through my NV610, and my band is LOUD! I think it would be a perfect match for your Traynor!- My Mesa D-180 is giant through it at only 150 watts or so...

    The 610 is not power hungry. It sounds great with every amp I have used with it. All solid state, a hybrid pre/power setup, and all tube amps from 100 to 400 watts.

    thanks Guys, glad to hear that about the NV610. I think I feel a GAS bubble coming on.

    Silver Spring, eh? You can hear my NV610 in Laurel this Saturday night.

    Can't pass up the opportunity to pimp a gig. :p

    I read through this thread and didn't see this anywhere...what does the NV610 cab sell for?

    When I got mine, it was hooked to a YBA200 in the store. I loved the sound and almost walked out of there with both of them but that would have meant a month on the couch instead of just two weeks. ;)

    I did feel that the Traynor wasn't quite loud enough, but that wasn't because of the cab. I played the Traynor through a few others and had the same impression. If you are okay with the Traynor's volume with your current rig you should be fine with the NV610. In fairness to the Traynor, I wasn't cranking the snot out of it or playing with a band so it might have cut through just fine. One of these days I'm going to get one and find out. For now it's more than loud enough with my 500 (solid state) watt Thunderfunk.
