    i have just discovered these cabs they look sweet and want to get one but not import i know they usa made only but any chance of me being able to get hold of a neo212 cab in the uk?
     
  2. While they dont have Avatars (I'll admit, not seen them over here), you might want to check out : http://www.bassdirect.co.uk

    You could try the Genz Benz neo 212?
     
  3. well as I am sure you have discovered.. dave will not ship outside of the US... at all..

    so the cost and trouble of somehow getting one over there wouldnt be worth the hassle if you ask me... :\

    You mean one already in the UK? I have no idea. You'll have to post in the wanted forum. Used from elsewhere? You'd still have the shipping and possible customs duties.

    There must be some low cost quality cabs in the UK.

    Size them up and make a cab after the Avatar you want. They don't use anything exotic as far as I can tell, and you will probably end up with a better cab if you ad a midrange and a decent crossover.

    random question ppl the aguiliar 212 any good?

    dn't have the skills to make a cab bro.

    the thing i love bout them is the colours they look sick!
     
  16. Id say the Aguiliar would be better than the GK. Probably better than Avatar too. IMO

    I've played Trace and Peavey in stores and they sounded good to me. If that 's what is available then go out and try them.
