Hey guys, I'm currently planning on purchasing my first cab, and I've found a Mesa 810 in decent condition (cosmetically, a tad rough) for around $350.
A few obstacles though:
At the moment I have no car (black mold claimed the last one
) so when I gig, I usually depend on a friend to get me there.
An 810 seems like it would be a bit much for the smaller types of gigs I play- school gigs and medium venues, with hopefully a consistent outdoor venue coming soon. ~170 pounds is a LOT of cab to carry. Is it still worth it?
I feel like a 410 would easily cut it for me, but even though an 810 is almost definitely too much (I'd be running max 400 watts through it), I've also heard that Mesas are the stuff, and it seems like a great price.
What would you guys do? D:
