    and succumbed to the GAS y'all generate here.....

    I picked up a Shuttle 6.0 and a NEOX212t, along with a footswitch.

    I scored on the cab, as the local dealer here must have got it from his distributor at the old price. I scored it for $759 whereas MF has it for something like $829 (before shipping) and AMS has it for $900.

    I almost went with the Avatar 410Neo, but Dave seemed to not be interested in getting me as a customer - saying, well, shipping to Hawaii is too expensive (though I'm paying for it) and insurance claims are too much of a hassle. I understand his point of view though - he doesn't want to eat any costs if anything is damaged. He did concede that he'd sell me a cab, but only if I arranged shipping and basically absolved him of any responsibility should something go wrong in transit.

    So today I went to my local dealer and did A/B comparisons with an SWR 550x rig and an SWR Triad. We also switched heads and cabs, and I ended up preferring the 2x12 and the Shuttle.

    Oh, and this cab JUST fits in the back of my Prius!!
     
  3. I just went through the whole insurance claim process on a DB112 and it wasn't too bad at all. In fact the seller didn't need to do a thing. There was a bit of paperwork on my end- then the Post Office sent me a cheque for the full retail amount.
