    I plan on running it through one of my Ampeg 810e cabs.

    I had one at my disposal in the studio last week. I have to say that it was pretty amazing. I managed to get a pretty gritty fuzz out of it while still having lots of clarity even on the low B using flatwounds! Also tried it with nickel wounds on a P-bass and got a really sweet rock tone out of it. It's a pretty dark sounding head in general and it takes some fine adjustments to get things just right. It's also a very smooth sounding amp - to the point where it can be a little difficult to get some real definition in the mids. Not to say it's impossible by any means, just needs a bit of roll-off in the low end to keep it from getting muddy. Overall I ended up falling in love with it over the couple weeks I was using it - it has a pretty unique voicing that I really enjoyed.
