    I have a Mesa 400+ coming soon. I would like some input on an ideal cab/cabs match.

    Of corurse I want it all, punch, clarity,cut, definition, some grind would be nice.

    Thanks, Bob

    Of course there are many options-
    I think that the supreme sound with the 400+
    would come from the sadly discontinued MESA
    Diesel cabs, specifically the "Road-Ready" versions.
    With some effort, you can find them, hopefully in your 'hood, because shipping costs (oi vey!)...

    The new Mesa cabs, Road-Ready or not, are nice too, they use PAS drivers I believe. I like 'em a lot.
    But IMO the EVM-loaded Diesels were the kind,
    & the acoustic properties from the RR enclosures,
    are, ah, "awsum dude".
    I use a Buster (kinda like half the 400+) with standard EVM diesels; I am a happy man! Would not mind RR's at all, & since I'm about to tour, REALLY wish I had 'em- I'm lookin' at $450 for a road case- anyway, that's my word- have fun &
    congrats on the 400!
