    Hey Talkbass,
    Well Its been a long week of holidaying away from home, but I brought home with me an Ampeg cabinet! Its an SVT-410HEN. Notice the 'N'? Basically its a 410HE that can handle 500 watts. So whats this 'HEN' business about anyway? They aren't in Ampeg's latest catalogue of gear...
    I myself didn't even know it was a 'HEN' until I was carrying it away to my car. I assumed it was just a HE cab.
    I got it second hand from a Guitar shop for $500 US. Think it was a good deal? They go new here for about $1250 US.
    I'm still looking around for an ampeg head to match, and I saw a good second hand SVT-4 Pro in a Musicians pro shop that was selling for $900 US. New they sell for $1500. So Im thinking about buying that...
    What do you guys think?
