Not far from the Cabana. It's a newish venue called Paisley Stage in Carlyle Street.
Some people say that you need a ton of watts to push the Ampeg 810, while others (like most here) are impressed by just how good (and loud) the 810 can get with "little watt" amps.
I have yet to get my Quilter Bass Block 800 past the 40 Watt setting (roughly the 9 o'clock position) on the output control (and it has 800 of those very loud watts available)! I'm totally impressed by my 810.
I would love to hear what a "little watt" tube head would do!
Jimmy, as you know, I'm in the market for one... so what kind of speaker outputs does it have? I mean, I can google, but since this thread is active...
I like that too! Do they still make em?
One 1/4" speaker out with an 8/4 ohm switch.
So I can just run any of my 8ohms stand alone, or two 4ohms linked together?
That’s correct, for two cabs just chain off one to the other. Remembering to set the impedance switch is something I’m occasionally forgetting...
Not two 4 ohm cabs linked together. Two -8- ohm cabs linked together or one standalone 4 or 8 ohm cab.
Lol. Yes that's what I meant. Thanks!
That's exactly what I would do!
I want one of these. Bad.
@JimmyM or anyone else who knows... What is the smallest fliptop cab in current production? I wanted the 12, but it doesn't look like a flip
The 12 isn’t a flip... I’ve just exchanged one of my 12s for the 115HE which I think is the smallest flip top.
how do you like it and how is it for weight and size? Fairly portable or still too much?
Thanks bro! I'm dying to get something small and terrific sounding, I'd have loved a 12, but the flip is just too convenient.
Yep, that and the PF210he are the same size (they're also the same size as the 60's B-15 cabs), and they are the smallest cabs that actually allow flipping, though the 115 has a slight weight advantage. Personally, I think it's the least attractive feature of the Fliptops
What is the least attractive feature? The Flip? lol
It's interesting that they have a 410 too. How does it stand up to the traditional Ampeg 410 cabs? Sound? Sensitivity? Tone?
I like the 112, great little cab, but for some reason I didn't take to the look of the stacked 112s with the PF-50t but I bet a PF-20t would look great up there.
In the end the idea of just wheeling the Portaflex in and flipping it won me over, I just love the quirky look of those exposed transformers and tube cage. And of course the sound
I'm keeping a 112 anyway but should get the 115HE at the end of the week. I guess it'll be comparable with my old B15T flip top in size and weight so quite manageable even for me.
