    ... Other than an Aguilar cab.
    I'm fairly skint so was wondering what the best cab would be for about $250 until I can afford the sl series cabs.
    Thanks!

    Sorry, I've only played Aguilar cabs for a long time. It's like dating Halle Beery, there's no need or desire for me to check out anything else.

    Maybe someone else can help you here.

    Yo DaddyB,

    You missed the point! He can't afford the Aguilar cans right now. If he can't afford the Aguilar cans he can't afford any of the high end stuff.

    Sorry, my bad. $250 is going to a bit of a stretch unless you go used. The Genz Benz focus cabs have been getting alot of buzz. Hope that helps.

    In terms of something cost effective, and *PROBABLY* very nice sounding, TC electronics has an model called the RS112. Its a single 12 inch driver in a TC cab. they go for about $449.00 US... Which I know is still $200 over budget for you. But In going for a nice little rig for the TH350, I think it would be a decent contender.

    Looking on musicians friend, Ashdown also has a 1x12 (get you by while you save) little cab for $299.

    Ofcourse what I would most recommend since you have a decent head, and are hunting for good tone, is if you have an old combo or something you used to practice with. You could always disconnect the original head section from it, and run the speakers from that with the new TH350. and save save save! and get yourself that Aguilar cab. I always think if your end game is in reach, buying a few cheep things along the way (though it can help you get by) also kind of hinders saving for what you want.


    If you can make do with what you have for a few more months, then right now you are actually $250.00 closer to the cab you actually want.


    Anyway... Thats probably enough from me!

    Keep on groove'n!

    The Aguilar sound is its heads and cabinets. I'm with Anthony - no need to do anything bit Aguilar.

    I personally love me TH with one or 2 gs 112s depending on the gig.

    Avatar sb112 $289. However if you really want that Aggie this would be $289 towards the Aguilar Cab. Think of it this way. if you spend the $289 on something else you will still want an Aguilar cab. Thing is how badly do you need a cab right now?

    I agree! But that kind of reasoning and logic doesn't have anything to do with bass or music. It's just logical and efficient thinking.

    But I like for people to arrive at that on their own.

    You can get a used GS-112 for about $300 if you check Clist.

    What about a used Bag End S15-D?
    8 ohm, but efficient, so should be fairly loud with the TH350.
    I just picked up one of those cabs this weekend, and my TH350 should be here in a couple days... can't wait!

    Hi all! I'm buying a TH 350, but I noticed that it only has one output, how am I supposed to connect two cabs? Never had to daisy chain cabs before coz all the amps I've ever owned had two outputs, so I'm not sure how this works. Thanx!

    Daisy chain, that's how it works...

    Just be sure your cabs are identical and you won't have any problemz...

    I'd go the Aggie cabs. If you're really that skint, I reckon an Ashdown 1 x 12 will see you through.

    I'm not big on used cabs, you don't really know what the voice coils have been put through. I often play at festivals where backline is supplied and generally the boxes sound very tired....in one case, I recently used an Aguilar hire rig that sounded rubbish; conversely, the very next day i used another one that sounded brilliant!

    IMHO, you're better off getting a new one.

    I totally agree! Never buy used cabs. Unless you know the former owner, you just don't how hard they've been 'pushed' or if the speakers have been swapped out with 'lesser' quality speakers. Most of us don't consider that. And most if us, including myself, would never know.

    And a LOT of bass players like to turn up to 11!!!!!
