    Here's my custom Mesa Engineering Powerhouse 1000. It's a beautiful and powerful cabinet -- way more than I need for my hotel ballroom gigs.

    I'd rather not ship this cab, so I'm pricing it for delivery only to the Seattle-to-Portland area. $600, which includes the fabulous StudioSlips double-padded clamshell cover that's kept it in such great condition! Here are some pics -- email me for more! Please note that there's no visible wear in the tolex. If you think you're seeing something, it's a reflection from the flash. Also, the casters are "true." The camera angle makes them look a little skewed. (I'm an accountant -- not a photographer!!)

    For someone who wants a killer big-stage system, I would sell my Peavey VB-2 and this cab for $1,000.00 It also has a StudioSlips double-padded clamshell cover, and it also looks brand new, with no visible wear!

    Thanks for looking!
    Greg

    Here's a picture of the clamshell cover. It wraps the entire cabinet, with holds for handles and casters. It also has leather pads for feet and rear-rails. Super-protective.

    (It's in excellent condition -- I should have gone over it with a damp cloth before taking the picture!)

    I just found out that if you reorganize your photobucket account, your pics might go away. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Yes. I played it this weekend with a Mike Pope preamp and Peavey IPR 3000 power amp. GREAT sound.

    I haven't done much to try to move this cabinet! It's still here, it sounds great, and it's a really good deal!
