    Hey fellow low-end brethren,

    Cab has been SOLD!

    I nabbed this literally brand-new GB Uber Quad 1288 cab from a fellow TB'er in a local trade deal. I was pretty certain it would not be my thing (I'm a scooped-tone kind of guy), but was curious, so went for it. Sure enough, although it is an amazing cab, with fantastic articulation, smooth mids/highs and tons of bottom if you need it, it is as I suspected, not quite my cup of java. Cab is absolutely brand new. Not a mark on it. Looks fresh out of the box. Of course, zero issues.

    I'd like to move this fast. Let's say $600. Shipping is crazy expensive these days, let's split that - my guess would be about $35 each if you're on the East Coast via FedEx. I'm in California for reference.

    As far as trades, I'd consider discussing the following: Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 (hopefully with gig bag) or a GB Focus 410 cab.

    Feel free to ask Q's here or PM me.

    Still more nibbles but no bites bump. This is a sick deal on a BRAND NEW CAB! Also.. I've had several PMs about shipping costs. Shipping all the way to Florida from Cali, for example, runs about $55 via FedEx ground, fully insured. Use that as a potential gauge, and realize I'm willing to cover half the shipping. Sick deal guys.... no takers???

    Free bump....This is a great price guys. I purchased a "B" stock unit used for $650 less than 2 months ago. If I didn't have two of these I would be all over this as (in my opinion) this is one of the best cabs available but as the OP states, it's drop dead accurate ... like a monitor, full range.

    Thanks for the bump! Ok... one more weekend and then off to Ebay. Don't want to do it but it deserves to find a home where it will be used. Would rather it land in the hands of a TB'er though...

    Man... if I can't move this cab for $600 the I don't know what to say. Great cab. Absolutely brand new condition. Might have to just keep it and make it "my cup of tea". Anyway... one more bump for hope against hope.

    Hey friend.....does this cab sound really clear or just clean and sterile sounding? I play a 7 string and I was thinking about this type of mixed driver cab but not sure........

    My impression is that the Uber Quad is very clear sounding but not sterile in any way. The mids are clear but warm, the highs are airy and there is tremendous low-end potential as well - just need to goose the lows a bit from your amp or bass and POW! Really great cab. If I were into a more articulate sound I'd be keeping it. Hope this helps.
