Compared to most of the companies on this list, Verellen is fairly new to the game. They make a variety of hand-made tube amplifiers, but the Meat Smoke model is their crown jewel. It’s an absolute beast, packing 300 watts of all-tube power for bass and guitar, along with two channels for clean and roaring, gut-punching overdrive. The Sword bassist Bryan Richie is a convert, and uses one through an Ampeg 8×10 cabinet.more

At 6:05 and 18:57 of the video, you can also see the side, which does not have handles, confirming that this is the 810 and not the 610 (or smaller). It is further distinguished from the Heritage or Classic lines by the dark black grill cloth.more
The SVT-810E Infinite Baffle™ design has remained constant since 1969 and delivers the punchy, round sound that defines the Ampeg tone. The combined air-moving capability of eight 10? speakers reacts faster to transients than fifteens or eighteens. The result is sound you can feel, that the audience can feel and that truly delivers what you want out of a bass rig. Simply put, the SVT-810E produces the vast amounts of tightly focused bass your band needs. In the world of high-performance bass cabs, the Ampeg SVT-810E stands tall and proud.more

First thing is holy SHIT this thing is absolutely massive. Bigger than you’re thinking. It’s also incredibly loud so it’ll definitely give you a tonal edge to compete with your drummer. I bought one of these new, and they’re beautiful out of the box. Worth every penny. If you’re gonna buy one I highly reccomend giving Ampeg your business, plus you won’t have to settle for a really beat up, scruffy looking used one. 10/10 cabinet.
