I picked this up on thursday:
Came with a nice cover:
Ahhhhh. The cab of my Dreams. If i didnt know i can't afford this for so long i would be having a major onslaught of GAS right now. Anyway, very nice choice, what head is it being paired with?
With my rack on top:
Did it come with a pair of Roadies?
I got it from the GC in Springfield, NJ - for $800 plus tax... This cab is in practically brand new condition, and still has around 4 years of warranty left... I spent all day on the road to get it(500mile round trip), and it cost another $90 in gas to pick it up in my F150, but I still think I made out OK...
Both my bands have 2 gui****s with half stacks, one with a Triple Rec, the other with a 6505+, so this *should* help me hear myself better... I already have a PH610 - which I'm keeping - and it got the job done, but for that price I couldn't resist... I've used an SVT810e with these bands before, and could hear myself OK, but it lacked the depth and clarity of my Mesa - so I'm figuring that a Mesa 810 *should* be the best of both worlds...
On the bright side - one of the gui****s hauls our backline, so *most* of the time, I won't even be transporting it...
Mesa Big Block 750 for now, although I'm thinking about trading that for an M-pulse 600... I also have a 700rb-II that sounds great with any of my cabs...
Thanks - tonight is it's gigging debut: my band is headlining a slammin' Halloween party... Funny thing is, we have an opener - so someone else will be gigging it before me, hahaha!!!
Our backline gets hauled in a big truck, so moving it is no big deal... I'm of the opinion that I play for 4-5 hours at a gig, and move gear for less than 15 minutes - so I don't mind moving whatever I like to play thru, since it makes my evening more enjoyable to play thru a great rig...
How about a picture of the PH610 + PH810 side by side?
looks pretty brutal.
could you turn that picture down, please? you're wrecking the mix in my living room
geez, why would you want to do that? less power but more knobs?
Well, the new cab totally kicked ass last night - I could hear myself really well, with a reduced Master volume from my usual setting... I asked the guitarist next to me if I was too loud, and he said I was fine - so, maybe just having the extra pair of tens up higher will make a nice difference...
I could definitely hear myself clearer in the band mix - which was my only complaint about the BB750 - it sounds great by itself, but has a tendency to disappear in a band mix, and gets a bit gritty at a lower volume than I'd prefer...
My BB750 still has the original Mesa tubes in it - I'm thinking that maybe some different tubes might coax a little cleaner headroom out of it... I really like it's warmth, but wish it would stay a tiny bit cleaner at *my* volume - maybe some new JJ's would help with that...
The gig went great - big, enthusiastic crowd, lots of hot chicks wearing great costumes, and nice pay - 'gotta love Halloween!!!
Yeah, I probably should've taken one like that before dropping it off for gigging - now, it's in the truck with the rest of our gigging backline... I'll take some like that sooner or later, though - and I'll be sure to post them when I do...
