Yesterday like any other day Im checking craigslist for bass gear because my band will be soon be getting gigs and I am in need of a rig. I was shocked to see an Ampeg 810 for $200! So i call the guy up right away and I said Id be there after work. So I get there and the guy (drummer by the way) said he gotten about 20 calls on it an hour after posting. The first thing he said is someone already offered $400 for it. I made a counter offer to throw in my Fender Rumble 60 combo with the $200 he asked for, he sat on that idea for a while and still wanted to give the other guy a chance so I hung out there for a couple hours waiting. While waiting we pulled out the cab that hasnt moved from his shed in 8 years and pulled off the front cover. After researching the serial number we discovered it was a 67 cab. It had all the original drivers in it as well. I could be wrong but I think the drivers were CTS (does that sound right?). One driver was reconed and that back of it had a sticker on it saying it was serviced in 88'. The only thing he had to test out the cab was an old peavey 200 watt PA mixer. On 200 watts it was thumping loud! All the driver were working well. The sound out of this PA mixer was crap so I cant wait to hook up a nice preamp and power amp to it. I want to rack a sans amp with a peavey power amp. Id much rather find a vintage ampeg head but I dont think that would be able to fit into my budget. The cab was recarpeted but underneath on the front grille was the original green tweed. I pulled that off last night as soon as I got home. The tweed was kind of nasty looking but hey its 40 years old. Im so happy to have this peice of music history!
