What would be more practical to buy new an Ampeg - SVT810E - 8x10 Bass Cab or an Ampeg - SVT3PRO - 450 Watt Bass Head. My local music store sells both, but i have just recently came across a used svt3 for about 600$ (and the cab for about the same). so i plan on buying atleast one of the two new. Basically what I'm asking is which is going to last me longer and have a greater effect on my tone.


Any input is greatly appreciated

"8x10" and "practical" don't belong together in the same sentence.

Do you have a huge car and do you rehearse in a space that you can leave gear? 8x10 is going to give you nothing but headaches unless you are well equipped to handle it.

I say get the head. You can get used carvin cabs or something for cheeeeeeeeap until you get "real" cabs

JW, why does it need to be ampeg?

youre saying to buy the used head? also just amps that ive been really grown a liking too, a lot of other amps dont sound as warm to me if that makes any sense

If you are sold on ampeg, get the head. You can always get a 410 or two, which will be easier to transport and manage than a 'fridge

810s are sexy looking but are a bear to transport and manage space wise
