So I picked up an Ampeg SVT 810e yesterday. Its a brand new 2007 cabinet - the store ordered it directly from whoever their supplier is for Ampeg gear - but oddly enough, the cab says 2007 on the small sticker on the jack plate. Made in China. I'll have to check the serial number when I get home, to get the exact date. Now, this doesn't bother me. It's definitely brand new - it was in a factory Ampeg box, wrapped and padded, etc etc. The fact that it's a 2007 model probably just means it literally was never sold and sat in warehouse to warehouse before it was ordered in by a customer. My question is are the 2007 China-made cabs OSB or plywood? And what are the general thoughts of the Chinese-made cabs vs Vietnam? Would this cabinet be from the period that's considered "dark" sounding? I did some digging on the forum; just looking for a few more opinions. For the record, I'm really liking this cab so far. Only been able to play it at home so far, with an SVT-CL. Tinkered with some sounds, and I really enjoy it regardless of year, country of origin, etc. Gigging it this weekend.
