    Looking to match a cab with Peavey VB-2
    -weight does not matter
    -don't play large venues (small and at home)
    -play blues and classic rock
    -looking for that vintage sound (whatever that means LOL)
    Thanks John

    Find yourself a nice 215. Seriously.

    Why look for it if you don't know what it means?

    Anyway, here's what it means...

    Vintage: highs cut off past 4 or 5k
    Modern: highs go past 5k up to as high as 20k

    Sorry Jimmy I was just being a smart _ss.
    Thinking 212 or 215 but no where to try different cabs here. SVT, Epifani, Peavey, EBS so many choices. Love the tube amp but needs some advise on the cab from people in the know :)

    I owned a VB-2 for a short time last year and used it with these same SVT15e cabs. They are good 15's and do vintage tone quite well.

    Look for an old school 2x15 cab like a Sunn Concert Bass or the cab that went with the Ampeg B25.
