PF-115HE, SVT-810E, SVT-810AV, PF-410HLF. What do all those letters mean anyway? Those letters tell you more about the cabinet and we’re here to help you figure out what it all means.

Join Ampeg guy Dino Monoxelos  as he decodes the meaning of the Ampeg model numbers.

    I agree. Definitely not something to do with a house show or small bar. And my hstiory with electronics is pure crap. Things just break around me for no good reason. (Which is ironic since I’m a software engineer.) But it’d be great to experiment with. The dream of not having to lug giant stacks around is so tempting. However, I like ther real sound of cabs. It would take a ton of convincing that a Pro Tools emulated effects can sound better than an SVT tube amp running through an 8 10 cab. On the other hand, I’ve heard of musicians that only bring their heads to the show and just DI in. That would only work with a good sound system, and a good sound person that actually listens to the band.haha! I used to bi-amp my bass, and I thought I was the awsomest thing to hit the planet. Until every show, the sound person was thoroughly confused and refused to put two microphones on my cab. I would even tell them the exact frequency ranges I split along, and they would just seem a bit pissed. In my mind I thought, Dude, it’s just one more mic. This is my band’s sound, so why be all weird? Then I realized not all sound people are actually professionally trained. They just wing it.
