    Looking to acquire another of these beasts. Known as the "Geezer Butler" cab, it debuted at NAMM in 2003 and was discontinued by 2006. 4x12 bass cab. 4 ohms. I just love mine and decided that I need to have another as a spare.

    Hard as all get out to find one on the used market. Anyone seen one of these recently in their local music shop?
    Maybe you have one for sale? If so, please p.m. or post.

    Thanks for that. I did see that post back in February. But, when I called they said it was already gone.:crying:
     
  4. I've NEVER seen one in real life. I've got an AMPEG poster w/ all their gear-from about 2004 & it's on there, & I've always thought it'd be a damn nice cab, but..... Nah never seen nor heard.. sorry. NOT that one'd be worth getting over from Aus to you... ;-) Goodluck!

    You're welcome. I remember seeing a new one years ago at a little, but surprisingly nice, music store in western IL. I was there about a month ago and they didn't have it. I'll keep my eyes open!

    Since Ampeg style tolex, grille cloth, badges, etc. are readily available, why not craft a replica? The specifications on the speakers should be easy enough to acquire.
     
  6. ..yeah, I wanted one of those but didn't get one in time. Some say the 410hlf replaced it, but I think a sealed 412 would sound good with a cl/vr/SVT II whatcha think...?

    If you can't find one, the Berg NV412 is a killer sealed 412.

    Not so fast funkytoe... this is TalkBass and we must see photos once the cabinet arrives. Because, as we all know, no photos = no cabinet! :D

    Btw, congrats on finding one so quickly!
