  2. I'll ante up with my Shuttle 6 / Avatar B210 & B212 Neos.

    I rocked this stack just last weekend at a show with my gospel band. I've been playing a 1x15 (x2) rig lately and brought this one out because it was an "all white" party and it's the closest I've got to a white amp. lol Totally forgot how AWESOME it sounded, and it'll be getting back into rotation.


    P.S. The venue had wall hangers and I was totally geeking out over them. It's the "little things," right? :bassist: lol

    P.P.S. Sadly, the Fireglo Rickenbacker isn't mine. It belonged to the bassist from another band and he let me play it. First time with a Rick and it was pretty hot! Unfortunately, not a 5-string. lol

    I need to get a pic of my rig, it is an Eden WT-500 running bridged into an 8ohm Avatar TB153. Loud and powerful. :)

    I don't need a number but just wanted to let club members know that I am a proud owner of a discontinued Avatar 400 watt 1x18. I'm going to keep it as they do not make anymore. I purchased it way back in 2000? I think. I'm trying to get Avatar to make either a 12/6/1 or a 2x12/6/1. I'm sure they could beat fearful prices.

    I just received the B212 neo I bought yesterday and it is hands down the best sounding cab I have ever owned and I have owned many. Seldom do I buy something anymore that I am impressed with, I thought I would share.

    nervous likes this.
  7. I was pretty impressed as well. Give it some break in time and it'll really get going!

    So I just finished repairing my 8 year old B410 which for some reason has a weird rattle (sounds like a dead speaker) when I crank up the horn. When the horn is off there is no rattle. Any clues?

  14. Sorry for the delayed response... job search, school, rehearsals, etc etc etc... lol

    Unfortunately, not silver sparkle. I wish! It's a 2006 MIA Jazz V and I think the color that year was called Inca Silver? It's got a little pearl to it, not sparkle though.

    Hi all. I am new here, but a very long time avatar player. I have a 410, a 212 neo, and a 210. I am a big fan of their stuff. I have other cabs, but these are the best value for the buck. Can I gets a number? :)

    Its heavy as balls though. If I start using it on tour, I will swap out the speakers for Neos. right now I am just using the 2x12, or even an Avatar 2x10.

    I used to own a neo 2x12, my first cab. I'm trying my hardest to find a used Avatar cab that I can use for rehearsals... Figure they're so cheap new, they're even cheaper used!

    Do any of the 2x10 owners play 5 string? Does it handle it well or does it get farty on the low B?
