    Alright folks, here's where you gush about your Epi 410UL. I just got mine a couple of weeks ago and am very impressed. It's light, loud, low....all three! This cab has big, tight low end, defined mids and a sizzling high end. Quick and punchy too. I find it easier to transport than the smaller cabs I've been using because it's taller and an easy push with casters.

    Sing on bruthas and sistahs!
     
  2. +1 on all of the above... just a fantastic cab... mega more volume and punch than the 310UL... which is also very nice.

    Ken, I had a feeling you'd be the first to board the LoveTrain! :)
     
  4. :D I'd post a more detailed account of my feelings toward this cab... but I've talked about it so much in other threads that I have a feeling some TBers are ready to b**h slap me :eek: ... so... I'll stick to the +1 on your comments :hyper:

    Yep ,+1 on everything you guys have said.
    I think it is the best 410 box there is period. It's a one box does all. I have also tried it by adding an epi T112UL and Man it just rounds it out in a perfect sort of way being driven by my Eden Nav Pre/Stewart 1.2 Power.

    Im in!
    Believe it or not I just sat in with a band with two guitarist, each had a Marshall full stack totally cranked and my 410 UL handled it with ease. In fact at one point I was asked to turn down a bit. Insane!
    I was using a Crest LT1000 bridged mono with a Avalon U5.
    I am now a strong believer in EPIFANI!!!
     
  8. Are casters standard on it? I know it's light and all, but casters would be nice for getting it down the street.

    I got slide on H/Duty casters for an xtra $50-60.

    Very easy to move around.

    Casters don't come with it. I got mine at a local caster company. They're lighter than normal and roll GREAT.

    On a side note, I need to get a cover for mine, where is the best (and cheapest) place to get one?

    Yup. Count me among the choir. GREAT cab. :cool:
     
  12. +1... as was pointed out above, the cab is tall enough and is so light that wheeling it around with your head on top is a breeze.... it's just about perfect. The Epifani cover (Tuki) is not cheap, but is nicely padded, fits perfectly and has the nice logo on it :D ... if you want a cover, I'd just take the plunge on that one.

    That's what I did. I passed on casters, however. I use a two-wheeler for load-in/out and always sit the cab on a Gramma pad to get the sound I like.
     
  14. I've always been a big fan of coupling a cab directly to the floor (except for those 'hollow' wooden stages). I've always had removable castors on my cabs and yank them off when I get to the gig, or just leave the front two in as a 'tilt back' sort of thing on smaller cabs. The 410UL is the first cab I've owned that sounds GREAT while still on its castors.... plenty of low end without having to couple... just fantastic... and tall enough that tilting back is not needed even when standing close. This is very cool given that all my gigs are freelance... so I'm responsible for only my stuff. I make it out of the gig quicker than the singer sometimes... just throw the cover on and start wheelin' :bassist:

    How much are these and where do you get them?
     
  16. Any Epi Dealer.... Groove Shoppe would be the quickest, since Nick doesn't drop ship any more and they are in the neighborhood. They aren't cheap.... I think the 410UL cover is about $70 or so if I remember correctly... but very high quality with plenty of padding.

    Not me, I've always battled too much low-end on almost every gig. The Gramma tightens things up just right...for me.
     
  18. I think I went through a long time of using too small of a cab for the gigs I was playing (in my pre Neo and pre Jorg(!) search for light cabs, which even just a few years ago meant small and relatively quiet cabs that had problems projecting low end into the room.!). So, coupling was key. Now, I'm probably hearing the same thing you are talking about, with the cab elevated off the floor a little bit (you with the gamma, me with the wheels) that just makes it sound perfect!

    That's a reasonable price...Groove Shoppe isn't in MY neighborhood though.
