    Any of you own the EA NL-210 Series III bass cabinet? If so, any comments? Thanks.

    I converted a NL210 "I" with the new drivers and I love it.

    It is a great cab!

    I ordered a pair for my five string electric bass work with my (sometimes very loud) blues band. Just for the fun of it I decided to have them made custom with white tolex as a "tribute" to the 60's Fender cabs. I used Rustoleum multicolor dark brown spray paint on the grilles, and my son Mark, who I asked to cut out the Fenderish Euphonic Audio in white vinyl found someone online that does raised plastic logos from Corel files and surprised me with these cool badges. Voila!

    I got some extra tolex from them and will make lightweight 1/2" birch plywood cabs for the heads I'll use with the pair.

    Of course there is also mine, special order, in Tweed with Chrome corners. I have left the emblem off at this time as I am not sure if I am going to add chrome to the standard EA emblem or do something like what Mark and Bob did.

    I have to show you the matching cabinet I made for the Genz Benz Streamliner 900, tho this is my electric, not URB rig; I don't play that loud. Just my "tribute" to the oldies, since a 50w Bassman from the 60's doesn't quite have the same aural impact.

    Also very interested in this cab. E-Bay caught me in a fit of GAS and with no plan, and I now own an Aguilar TH500 at what I think was a very good price. Now I need a cab.
    I want a '68 Fender Telecaster bass and F-Bass BNF5 to sound good! On occasion, also an URB that I love.
    Looking for: 1. good musical tone, 2. light weight (this cab matches in weight my TubeWorks RT3100 combo that I still like a lot, so it's a contender. But I know I can go a lot lighter), 3. keep up with a drummer having fun (the 100 watt 1x10" TubeWorks struggles with that), and, if possible, 4. able to sound good turned down to acoustic levels.
    Is this cab a candidate? I'm also considering a few 1x12's, including the Wizzy 12, Aguilar SL112 & Traynor TC112 (I'm in Canada). Don't want to high-jack this thread, just keep the conversation going.
    Thanks in advance.

    While I am an EA dealer and was involved with this cab prior to its release, all I can say is I LOVE MY FREAKING TONE as do my bandmates. No honeymoon period has ended, I continue to love their versatility and expression, and I plan to put both my EA VL208 cabs up for sale -- something I never expected to do.

    And there are plenty of places to buy these cabs besides Gollihur Music.
