    I'm trying to gather any info or opinions for the best cab setup for under $1000. So far I have been looking at the Fender Rumble 350w w/ 410 cab for about $700 new

    Does it have to be a 410?

  4. Are you looking for a cab or a combo? Most 410's are under a grand. A quick check at the GC website showed all but 4 of the 20 different 410 cab offerings were under $1000

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    I'd go used and just shop pateiently/wisely. That way you can get a $1500-2000 rig for your $1000.
  7. +100 to that - with a $1000 budget and some patience you can score something sweet

    All said and done for about a grand. (cab and head) It doesn't necessarily have to be a 410 but I like a tight punchy sound. I don't have much experience with larger amps always had small combos.

    Definitely go used, you'll get exponentially more for your money, it's a serious buyers market right now...an Aguilar DB410 ($1200 new) just sold in the classifieds a few days ago for $500 ;)

    To me the BEST 410 cabinet for the money are the USED Ampegs BEFORE Loud Industries......the ones still made in the US. They are plentiful but if you get a good one hold onto it forever. Personally I have five Ampeg cabs ALL before Loud Industries acquisition and subsequent movement to China.
    I have SVT Heritage 115; 212; 48 (rare cab with 4 x 8" and horn only made one year); 410; and just found and acquired a Pro 1 x 10" plus horn >>> WOW. amazing for small gigs with total tone range and as loud as you need.

  11. An avid CL user, I bought my Ampeg SVT 4 Pro for $650 and my Ampeg 810 for $375... Look around you can get a great rig if you are carefull.

    Keep an eye on the TB classified. Most people here seem to take good care of their gear. You can get a great heads for around $350-400 shipped. I don't know your volume or tone requirements but you see GK 700RB-II's in that range a lot. Bulletproof and punch is it's middle name. Lots of micro heads used for 350-500 range depending on flavor. Lot's of mature bassist (code for getting old) sell off their 4x10 cabs in favor of smaller modular gigs. You can find used Ampeg, SWR, GK for days on CL for under $500. You can find Peavey TVX cabs for $300 used. I myself like the fEARful cabs and the 12/12/6 has punch for days. If you're handy with wood/tools you can build one for around $650. My 2cents....

    I agree with the Ampeg 410. I currently have 4 U.S. made SVT 410HE cabs. I usually only use 2 at a time but I know the U.S. made are getting harder to find so I plan on hanging on to all of them. I bought them used from 4 different people and paid between $250 and $300 for each

    The Chinapegs sound amazing and I actually enjoy my cabs made out of real wood with brighter sounding speakers. But hey thats just me! :D

    +1 on going used.

    If you don't mind something that's pretty heavy, you should be able to get a used SWR, Eden, or Trace Elliot 4x10 for less than $500. That will leave plenty of $ for a head.

    I'd also recommend at least being open to other speaker configurations. You might find something you like that you didn't expect.

    Used GB Shuttle 9.2 and GK 412 Neo II. You can get these together under a grand and a stellar rig.

    It might be too much rig for you ha! But both light weight as well.
