    I need a couple of small/light cabs to go with a tone hammer 500, I use it with a modulus flea bass.

    What would you recommend?

    I live in Dubai which has no vendors for me to try gear out, I have owned the GS112 before which I like but I want to keep an open mind.

    My practice rig at home is the TH500 into a GK Neo 112. Sounds great and is very light and affordable. It's very bright and modern sounding with my Modulus Q5.

    I'm actually bringing it to rehearsal tonight and will see how it holds up to an entire band.

    Cool, let me know. I love GK gear, if I could I would take a 1001 over the th 500.

    I like the gs112 because it has a mid scooped voicing, is the neo the same?

    Perfect match would be the Aguilar SL112 cabs. Or the Berg CN series pairs nicely too.

    Gk neo 112 easily held its own tonight. Nice pairing as are the other options mentioned. I guess it depends on your budget and tone goals.

    I owned some gs series cabs and they were pretty good but the gk neo is not voiced the same at all to my ears.

    This.

    I have two SL112 cabs are they definitely nice sounding although I now prefer them with an Ampeg PF500 over the TH500. Always wondered about the Bergs; they get great reviews around TB.

    I went from the Aguilar SL112 pair to a Berg CN212...and haven't looked back. That said, I thought the SL112 and TH pairing was fantastic...

    Where is the best place to buy these, somewhere which ships internationally?
