    Can anyone help me with these questions please? Opinions please!

    1. Early (69, 70) Ampeg SVT heads. Are they different, better, worse, or same than mid to later 70's heads? Do they sound different? Do they use different tubes, transformers or anything else? Are they worth more than mid 70's?

    2. When did the 70's heads start getting the Ampeg logo?

    3. SVT 810 cabs (the new ones). The SVT810AV (lighter color grill cloth) is advertised for $50 more than the SVT810E (dark grill cloth). I thought they had the same specs. What's the reason for the price difference?

    Thanks!
