With all brands like Mesa , Fender , ampeg, whatever! What's for you the best to play?
Ampeg 410 hlf
Barefaced, whichever inn the lineup suits what you do, they are all light.
You posted a question. And then you answered your own question?
There is no "best;" just best for a particular person under a particular set of circumstances, at a particular point in time.
Yeah, another "best" thread!
There are a lot of great cabs out there. My preference is a fEARful cab, but I do gas for some of greenboy's other offerings. I would check out these:
among many other designers that are doing something different (better) than big box commercial offerings.
Should probably note the OP says best for you. Hence entirely validly answering with what is best for himself, as is everyone else's answer. Except mine, because I made it a bit unspecific. The Vintage/Super15 is best for me, but my requirements are a bit weird.
In some ways, that makes life elegantly easy and drama free
Barefaced Super Twelve T for me
Here's what I ended up with after over 30 years of playing and countless equipment changes.
This is the Avatar B 112 delta. They make it just a few miles down the road from where I live. Great company and the cabinet is very reasonably priced and sounds perfect for me.Even the low B comes out like it should.The company has endless combinations of vinyl and grille cloths and piping.
I have two of those cabinets and love them so much I can't even imagine wanting anything different.
Greenboy Dually built by Barry Audio Design!
"Best" is a matter of preference and is different for everyone. I prefer Ampeg.
I'm a Glasstone fan but I don't have one yet and now I hear about a tecamp Virtue cab that's supposed to be the shiznit, 2 12's, 2 10's, 3 different tweeters. Right now I'm playing through an Eden 2x12 with Puma 500 head.
A single cab with two 12s, two 10s, & three tweeters?
Well, today, the best cabinets for me are my Mesa PH 212's and I'm pretty sure they will be the best cabinets for me tomorrow as well.
No ACME? IMO it belongs on the list.
I am loving my Mesa/Boogie PowerHouse 2x15 EV cab! I agree is there is really no best cabinet though. There are many brands and styles of cabinet and each is different. What sucks for one may be great for another, it's all personal preference if ask me.
