Is anyone out there playing an Epi UL-410 with an Alembic F1-X pre/power amp...

  1. ...and if so, how do you like it?

    Or if you didn't like it, why?

    I'm looking for a catch-all 410, mostly for outside gigs and the occasional big room.

  2. anyone?
  3. Kind of a strange combination... old school, fat, warm Alembic pre with one of the most 'modern' voiced cabs around... huge low end, polite mids, very airy, hi fi top end.

    I used an Alembic pre for a while back in the day, and I have a 410UL that I use now as one of my main gigging cabs with a very tightly voiced solid state head. I have not heard that combination (I'm only posting up since I'm not sure you are going to get any responses). Every bone in my body says that would not be a good thing.... to much uncontrolled low end, and the voicing of the 410UL would seem to work against reproducing the complex, old school, tubey mids of the F1.

    I would guess (and it is purely a guess) that the Epi PS410 (more low mid punchy and mid present in general) would be a better match, and the weight is not that much more than the current 410UL.

    Another cab to consider is the Bergantino HS410... which is a slight tweak on the SA410, that was originally voiced for use with a tube amp... tight, warm, punchy.... it isn't a featherweight (around 80 pounds), but is a small 410 (only about 16" deep... so not that bad to schlepp).
