    PRICE DROP - 70's Fender 4x12 (412) Bassman 100 "Pyramid" Cab

    Selling this for my guitar player. He's looking for $300 or best offer. Since it's sitting in my guest room, I cannot stress that "best offer" part enough. Cab is in great shape considering age. Tolex only has a few scratches.

    This is a big boy and it sounds great. He's willing to arrange shipping, but you'd need to contact a crating service. Local sales preferred.

    Located in Odenton, MD, not far from Baltimore and DC.

    Some local nibbles, but nothing yet. Throw out a number. I'd be he'd take a good chunk less than advertised.

    Nah!
    The Peavey 1820's I replaced that with, now, those were heavy.

    I had one of those back in the late '70s. I was playing thru a Peavey Musician head into this, a "big cab." Dual Showman 2-15, AND a Peavey 2-15 cab. spread out around the stage Bill Wyman-style What's that 1.33 ohms? 'Never had a problem. We didn't know an ohm from a watt back then, we just played LOUD!

    What happens in that spot in the middle where all the projection from the speakers meet? Worm hole?

    Huh?
    I had a friend in high school who had one of these and a Traynor head. To this day, the best rig I ever played through.

    My wife is afraid of this cab. She thinks it's a giant robot trying to take over our second bedroom. Please, help her!

    I tried to look it up on line, but couldn't find it. Do you know how many watts this handles?

    I think these were paired up with 100 watt heads back in the day, but I'm not sure what the limit is. Would it help if I pulled a speaker?

    It wouldn't help me :D

    I don't have anywhere near enough knowledge to figure it out myself.
