This says it's the classic, yet the pictures shows the black label?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Electro-Voice EVM12L Classic 12 is the Classic 12. It is not the Zakk Wylde signature version. The Black Label simply is to convey that it is EVs high performance line. The only way you can tell the difference aside from the price, is the manufacturers part number. The Zakk Wylde version # F.01U.273.861 ends in the number 1 and the Classic 12 is # F.01U.273.862 ends in a 2.
