No particular tone needed. Just something reliable and musical.
Lightweight a plus.
Peavey showed off a lightweight 112 at NAMM. Might be worth taking a look at when they get released (if you're not in a hurry). You can see it in this video underneath the new Minimax head they are featuring.
Just something to consider. Happy Hunting.
Checkout the GK Neo112-II new for only $449. Fantastic tone, very reliable and musical and lightweight too. http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Neo112II
+1 That is one of my favorite 1x12's, period. It also happens to be crazy light, and one of the most affordable. Very impressive cab, in my book!
Not light, but around $300 used and sounds great - Aguilar GS112.
Do you mean a combo or just the cab?
If I was in the market for ...
a combo: Traynor DNB112
a cab: Traynor DNBX12
Not the lightest, but sturdy.
Lighter combo, less than 1/2 the weight, but 1/2 the power: SB112
Traynor TC112. I bought 2 of them for under $500 in total. Great sounding cabinets, and 25lbs each. I don't think they can be beat.
Geeez where? I can't find me for sale anywhere online.
Thanks for the suggestions so far TB - I'm looking stuff up.
Actually, TC112 is my first choice, but they're discontinued so I didn't mention 'em. Have to buy NOS or used; blindrabbit lucked out!
Yep, that's the one!
You serious? 5 watt $1000.00 amp for a bass guitar?
Just for the record, the "TC 112" cab referred to here is a Traynor. One of my models is also abbreviated as "TC112" (and it's above the OP's price range).
Not a 112, but Mike Arnopol makes a high-output 110 that would be competitive with a good 210 in output, and it's within the price range. It's called the MA-109 .
And, "huge sound" from a 5 watt recording amp? A GUITAR recording amp??????
Got my Aggie DB112nt for $280, but $300 to $350 is probably a bit more common for one in really nice shape. One is perfect for 'coffee shop' gigs or recording. I'm looking for a 2nd cab for use in louder bar gigs. I've got a serious case of GAS for a four-pack of DB112nts for the occasional very large stage gig. Four cabs may seem a bit extreme, but its only four 12 inch speakers, so i can justify that
Oooh, good call.
Another vote for the GK 112 Neo 2
Ampeg SVT112AV for me. Unless, of course, I were handy with wood, in which case I would make a fEARless 112. You can build one on your budget easily, and they'll outperform anything else mentioned so far.
Do you have one - or two? I'm an ampeg fanboy. Just wished they offered it in a NEO. Their NEO cabs are priced absurd.
