MGR/ctargia's review"Ampeg SVT-410HLF Bass Amp"
Bought it through guitar center from a former band mate who used to work at guitar center, so I got it with the employee Discount for $500. A new one will probably cost you around $7-800.
This cabinet is great, it can handle plenty of power and wont blow out on you. It is a perfect balance between a smaller 4x10 Cab like the 410HLE and a larger cab that is meant for big shows, if you play bars, clubs, and other small/medium venues this is the only cabinet you will ever need, this thing can fill a rather large size room with no problem, if you are playing stadium and large concert halls you should probably go for the 810 or even at a 15E for that extra low end push. But this cab is great for 5 and 6 string basses and will play and the frequencies your bass can play as long as you have a decent amp hooked up to it.
It has wheels that are on one side, so you need to slant it to roll it and move it from place to place. This can be difficult to store it in a closest when moving it up and down to roll it but when on stage its great to have a cabinet that wont roll of on you if you knock into it or decide to go all rock star and jump off your amp.
None that I can think of except that its heavy and hard to lift, but HELLO, its an amp!
This thing is built to last, you can buy a used one in confidence, and the resale value is high as well, for this reason.
If you are playing small to medium venues this amp is all you need, and with DI to the PA you should have no problem with larger venues. Its a great amp for a great price, I had to sell mine to pay some bills since I haven't played a concert in a while but I will definitely buy other one used when I have more time to play concerts again!

manu286's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent material"
What strikes immediately with this box is its finish. Nothing to complain about the above. The wheels are excellent and the iron bar to direct even the raise trust. At first I thought these gadget accessories since I used a carriage 15 € to transport my 4x10 "Ashdown but the use is very convenient, with the vibrations of the bearing, the housing does not fall continuously unlike before. Very well thought out.
In contrast, the sky could have been stronger. In doing back in 106, he rapped and easily torn. So to provide cover to make it fit in the trunk of a small car.
Already talking with markbass. The frequency curve is not balanced. There is a glaring lack of treble. The Ampeg heads accentuate the high frequencies and the sub bass. The markbas being neutral, we must correct the equa and loses some typical sounds ampeg. However, strong performance, the box 1/4 500watts head allows a good rehearsal and half our breath drummer friend in the back of the room. I note in passing that many artists prefer to tour their currently 410 HLF that the 810 too large. Power issue, there are more than enough. Able to adjust the volume of the tweeter is a treat for high volume, it really pierces the eardrums, it is good to fall. In contrast to low volume, make background brings more clarity. On low, they stir the stomach at high volume. Nothing like a classic 410. But then there's really nothing to see.
With B2RE head. The sound is less warm or dry. Very average dynamics. I even found the sound rather ugly one. however, it pierces into the mix in a very nice way and repetition leaves more room for other instruments while being hear. Positive opinion in the end, we have our grain while leaving space for the other musicians.
I've used it 3 years and sold roughly the price I bought it. This is very good material, well thought out. The price is high especially compared to ashdown which is almost the same product for 1/3 less expensive but it is the condition for the Ampeg sound.
So question: why did I sell? As I know I would not do on stage, or even more anecdotally, I went to the studio equipment and especially the Tech21 VT Bass pedal. I found the flexible analog and what is more Ampeg grain. This is good stuff I recommend. I would venture to say that if you have a sound quality for vocals, buy this pedal and plug on you. Better a great pedal to 200 € on the RCF or yorkville a Ampeg than 500th (because prices hp, amp, preamp etc ...) This is a little rules 80/20. It has 80% of its ampeg and the remaining 20%, it takes a true Ampeg and not the first prize huh. For large concerts, it is possible to rent a svt-2-pro or other HLF on a 410 or 810. An Ampeg tube is like a big capricious, it must be really patient to heat and make it scream. In short, it's boring and it weighs a dead donkey, the reverse of the medal.
So: box for performing, rehearsal just for fun and that's all. This model is probably the smart thing to do for the above purpose choice. It's heavy but extremely enjoyable when pushed. To meditate before purchase because simulations are now bluffing (including analog). Use only with a head Ampeg for a curve without appreciable frequency EQ too.

white_mc_whammy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use it with my head Peavey 5150II and low Gretsch Electromatic Jet Bass II.
to see ...
I've had 2 days. Only one rehearsal for the moment.
At the moment, I'm pretty happy with the combination. I expected to have a few gigs with me for specific advice.

gain.charly's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" fine"
live or repeat the baffle is excellent
I use it with an orange terror bass head for concerts bar (lack of space in most cases) or with my head Ampeg svt classic for large scenes should send big sound made in ampeg.
the sound is sharp and clear thanks to this bandwidth
I use it for 3 years now and I do not see any other use baffle
I bought this cabinet on a whim and I do not regret it but the speaker is a compact (only negative)

pulvonium's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" My ultimate speaker"
Fortunately he has good wheels.
And the cover for not damaging is not shipped with.
I struggled to find a "Made in America" on the secondhand market.
But since I do not regret:
- It is 4 ohms, so I pull my full power of different amp heads.
- It has a baffling Horn Driver
- A high or low volume, with a head standby transistors, with a sound amplifier, with my head lamps: it sounds, and I quickly found the sound I love.
- It's PERFORMANCE: No need to crank up the volume for sound.
- It is powerful enough for outdoor scenes, and not too big for cafe-concerts.
Ampeg sound ...
With experience, I will first buy the baffle, and I would save a lot of money ...

chab5's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A sacred guest! Baffle very serious!"
Frequencies that can drop to 28 Hz, it is also a big argument, in fact I hesitate to take a second rather than 810 for these very famous 28Hz.
I branch over a Ampeg SVT classic, so it sends the baffle and cash, is made for!
Okay I admit the weight is always annoying but good sound and robust anything!
Mr. Oh no it's not neutral! Next sound we recover the warm grain of Ampeg!
Compared to the famous 810, the 410HLF has a more open sound much down as up spectrum (with its tweeter that does not have the 810 which has a more "compact" in the lower midrange).
Dynamic level niquel it passes, it is designed for normal head I have.
This speaker offers good versatility and can play in all contexts and all styles. Some say qu'Ampeg is a bit vague on the sound is not as precise but with a warwick and tweeter baffle I get to have a sharp sound with no hassles. Well of course too much treble damages the HPs (including strapping lights when they are really really too much treble, so bah decrease the treble in this case, but at least the speaker warned you if your ear is the 'have not done before!)
I use it for a year and a half. Before I had a 4x10 warwick very serious but not facing such a level. What I like is the 28Hz for my thick rope détunée in G # (Db we are granted so I mid my in G # If, on the slides is MONSTROUS!), I also like the tweeter that serves me well for my sound very aggressive dug. Good value for money in retrospect. It's expensive and it's heavy, but here it is and it sounds! Anyway looks like the other "if you want the sound, move the box".
I have played it in concert "official" only once. I bought this cabinet before joining a group including former bassist has a 610 HLF, but wanted to like this board to the guitar (his real instrument if we can say is he who has the same is back!), ducoup I play on his cabinet and snooze in concert (I sometimes play on a 810 ampeg when the opportunity arises). The 4x10 has a gig but paradoxically it is the largest ever made, I chose him rather than the 610 for reasons of space at special trip there for this concert. Otherwise it serves me home, even if I did not grow too much, or so when you go up the mountain home of drummer and what it takes to repeat in a room not necessarily very large.
Well that's basically what's good: it's reliable, it sounds and it's versatile!
I do it again this choice although I tried 810 for his monstrosity and low mids well "hulk"!
