Wow!!! New Epifani for me!!!

    Well, I bought a used Epifani T-410 NYC from Vanselus. Thanks to Todd, the cab arrived quickly, was very well packed, and well... the whole transaction was great.

    The cab. Well, this is a big one. The biggest cab that I had before this was an EA 210 that was about 70lbs. UPS had the weight at 123lbs packed, and there was probably close to 20 lbs of packing, so I am guessing that this thing is in the 100lbs range. Not a big deal to me. Interestingly the Epifani website gives 85lbs as the weight of the 410 NYC.

    Anyway, the tone... this cab is thick. Deep and articulate. It sounds great with my 4 string (the Dingwall is at the Sheldon's shop right now). The horn is amazing on this cab. It is so sweet, not harsh at all. This is how a horn should sound, but unfortunately this is one of only a handful of cabs that I can think of where it is.

    Unfortunately I can't crank the cab up too loud in my apartment. Another unfortunate thing is that I recently moved and I'm still looking for a band to play with. I did let the volume get up to where I thought it wouldn't be long before someone pounded on the wall and it sounded TIGHT.

    Anyway, this thing kicks. I am SO happy with this cab.

    Nice! I really love my Eden gear, but when I pay off some bills, I am going to start trying some different cabs. This is definitely on my list.

    Welcome to the Epi family Geoff, crank it up!

    I was forced to sell my Epi 4x10 NYC a few weeks ago, now isn't that just heartbreaking!

    But instead I am now playing a 1x12 UL and 2x10 UL cabinet built by the same mr. Nick E. Oh boy I am having the time of my life (and so is my back).

    Have fun, steven

    Yeah, just have no reason to deal with those big cabs anymore.

    Isn't that an AMAZING speaker cab?

    It's not the normal Epifani T410 either, and it's over 100lbs I think. Different, heavier plywood. Nick says it's the best sounding 4x10 he's ever built.

    Rock it Geoff, Rock it! :D

    Oh, I'll rock it. ;)

    I put it on the bathroom scale and it said around 105lbs. The heavy weight doesn't bother me. I guess it gives me a reason for being at the gym 4 days a week.

    This thing is gonna slam me in the chest when I crank it, I can feel it... and I can't wait.

    Another step in the direction of agreeing with my theory that for bass speaker systems -- heavier is better (tone-wise)!

    weight must have something to do with it.
    the custom epifani I have that was made for Anthony Jackson is so heavy it would probably break my bathroom scale.
    but it sure sounds nice/////

    Be forewarned, that thing has some serious throw.

    It really doesn't take much to fill a room with that bad larry.

    Congrats on the Epi! I love mine. As long as you can lift it, it will stay in your rotation for a long time to come.

    do yourself a favor, don't do it!!!!!!!!!!11
    you will cry
    i like eden stuff but (dont kill me munji wherever you are!!) I finally tried epifani stuff against my 210xlt a couple of years ago and sold the eden (i still havent bought epi stuff yet)
    the nyc 210 makes the eden sound like it has a blanket on it, the 310 devestates it, and the 212 makes it sound like a toy. :bawl:
