    I was looking at the BagEnd site and I see that you can now buy directly from them using their site and traditional CC/PayPal payment methods.
    I’m glad to see that they’re finally catching up to modern times with regards to running their business.. adding ecommerce.
    I was always curious as to why they never had a marketing campaign.. Their S-15’s are my all time favorites..

    I gather their bread and butter comes from large scale pro audio and specialty setups that don't target us. But I agree, if they marketed their stuff it would sell better. Imagine if they had a few cabs in all the GC's.

    For some manufacturers, doing business with Guitar Center is like the biblical story about the Golem: You created this thing to help you, then it owns you. BagEnd in GC is a problem they don't need; selling direct to guys who've done their homework makes complete sense to me.

    That's pretty cool. I think my SB-18C is 30 or 40 years old. It says ELF on the back, banana plugs, black carpet, 3/4" ply, big box and weighs 80#.

    On my iPad now and don’t know how to copy an image location :bored:

    Bag End Club.

    Try to get a better pic soon.

    I’ll probably get rid of that blue grill paint some day. And add castors or bolt on a fork lift pallet.:laugh:

    Good for Bag End.

    Can't help but think of Lord of The Rings everytime I see them mentioned.

    I’ve had the carpeted S-15 cabs for many years. I now have the powered PS15N that replaced the passive cabs.

    I keep thinking I may flip to Bag End. People I highly respect swear by them. Their market is big concert audio, but I take that as a good sign. Really dig the new 15 enclosures...

    The used market has some great value. I recently purchased the BE powered 15 cabs.
    Built like tanks.. sound great.
    I do miss having a passive 15 around..

    For a fair number of years, a Bag End BX-D 410 was a staple in my rig. I don't think I've ever owned (or played!) a 410 that sounded better. I LOVED that thing. But the beast weighed 96 pounds, so eventually I reluctantly sold it. (Sigh...)

    I've read only great things about these enclosures. Do any of you have experience with their lighter weight 15's?

    Check the Bag End club, linked on post 8. Lotsa love for those newer, lighter cabs.
