    So I just walked out of the store with a V4b reissue. I demoed off a svt 410hlf. And for anyone that is on the fence about getting a V4b due to volume. I laid those to rest for me on the first note I played. That sucker has some balls. Now I'm looking for a cab.

    Right now in my gigs I'm playing in a country band that spans a variety of styles of country and classic rock here and there. I do have PA support but I'm coming from a gen 1 ampeg 210 combo that really sounded good at my shins

    Now, I did not like the 410hlf just from how much low end it had. I want something a little tighter. I considered going up to the 610hlf but not sure. I've been looking at the 212av and possibly getting 2 112 av's. What's y'all's experience with this amp cab combo?
  2. A few threads on this already.
    The 212av seems a popular choice. I use one or 2 Fender Bassman Pro Neo 115s. They're great. Especially with the V4B

    212av, 410he, 810e, and 610hlf's made since LOUD took over Ampeg are more what you're looking for with a V4B. I've not heard any older 610hlf's but people tell me they're muddy. Newer ones aren't. They're voiced surprisingly like an 810e to my ears. I like cabs that don't have as much low end as the 410hlf, too. Good for downtuned metal, hiphop, modern dance stuff and the like, but for what I do, the 810e sets the standard, and the other cabs I mentioned are voiced most like an 810e IMHO. Enjoy the amp!

    I played my original vt22 combo (same head as a V4 afaik) through the Ganz benz neox 212 I had at the time. It sounded great. That’s all.
