  5. Well, finally my rig is done.

    This is my rig. Two Gallien Krueger 700RB II's running into two Acoustic 106 cabs.
    It's a stereo rig with the bridge p/u running through the one on the left and the neck p/u running through the one on the right.

    The GK 800RB and Peavey 1810 (full range) in the middle is for my Moog taurus pedals.

    Your 106 cabs look like there're in great shape. VERY nice rig!
     
  7. No, you never heard of one because I type like an idiot.

    106.:D

    I have an old 360/361. May I join?

    Nick, I like the looks of the new rig.

    I just wanted to reiterate the fact that Nick901 has the new USA Acoustic361.
     
  11. Thanks!! I'll have to clean the grillecloth on the one on the right. I was lucky to find two of those cabs within a fifty mile radius. $660.00 for both.
    The cab on the left has a speaker (you can see it in the photo) that has a small dent on the aluminium cone. Is there any way to repair that? Small suction cup? Does it matter in terms of sound?
    Other than that I'm going to open them up, clean them up and make sure the wiring is solid before I fire that rig up.

    I popped out some dents on my 810's dust caps using $1.00 superglue and an pencil. just put a drop of glue on the pencil and place it in the center of the dent. wait just a few seconds till the glue starts to set then slowly pull the pencil back. should pop it out with no issues at all...

    Using a new B200 combo, a fine little amp for small rooms. Sorta like Acoustic's version of a solid state B15.
     
  15. Hey! That sounds like it will work.
    Thanks! I'll give it a try.
     
  16. It DOES!!

    But, I'll have to be careful.
    The heads will SMOKE those cabs if I crank it up too much.
    I just hope it can keep up with a drummer and the rest of a band. If not, then the Fender 2X15 cabs will replace the Acoustic 106's.

    BUT, for now, everything is fine.

    I have to agree, that's a killer setup for your Ric, Fender and Moog Taurus. Incredible.
