Yet another backline du jour ... how is the Ampeg 410 HLF?
« on: February 23, 2018, 08:26:18 PM »
Playing another unfamiliar venue. Their gear page says the house cab is an Ampeg 410 HLF.  I liked the 610 version I played through last year pretty well, think it was from the same series.  Should I expect roughly similar tone? 

How tight is the low E?  Does it drop like a rock below the port frequency? or can you hear all the notes all the way down?  Are some notes super boomy? Can you get a lot of mids and upper mids out of it?

Pretty strong reviews at Musicians Friend, including mention of "strong 5th string lows."

No personal experience.
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)
