    Could be a set of these. It looks like an original SVT head & SVT 810 & not a re-issue cause the knobs & ****ches look like their in a different places.

    Taking a closer look, it's definitly a vintage head.

    thank you ...
    I hoped get more answers but if it's a 70's SVT head with a 69 Cab ...

    I'm sure it's a 8x10'

    Thanks...

    I'd kill to have one of those! You're lucky you don't live across the street from me! And both pieces in road cases, too. WOW.

    How many people do you expect to answer SVT? :)

    How can you tell it's a straight back cab? It's in a road case.

    Personally, I've never seen (or heard of) a straight back 810 cab. That has to be a REALLLLLLLL PAIN to haul around. :)
     
  7. It's an older SVT head, with an 810 cab. The head looks mid 70's to me (looks just like mine!). Not sure of the cab vintage, but Psycho's probably right. He's definitely right about it being Holy Grail of rock n'roll bass amplification! :D
    <---- That's the inside of one right there!

    It is. :D There are only two handles, and both are on one side of the cabinet, one running parallel to the length of the the cab, the other one going across, near the bottom. It's quite the beotch. I was thinking about putting castors on mine, but I'll probably just use the 'ol handtruck for a while. (I'm not worried about "vintage" re-sale value- it's beat to hell.)
