    i'm pretty new to bass but it has come time that I get my own rig with which i can record and/or play shows.

    I'm limited financially somewhat, but I found this cab for 300 and I was wondering if I could use this as a bass cab. Or you guys could reccommend another half-stack that's decent for around maybe 600-700?

    The MF280 is a guitar cab, so personaly I would not play bass through this one. Try to find a used Marshall VBC412 the price should be within your budget and it sounds amazing.

    Great guitar cab, but the Celestion V30 speakers in there are lousy for bass. You should be able to find a very good used bass cabinet within your price range.
