Have you heard of Revsound cabinets?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by stkittsmusic, Jul 16, 2013.

  1. Cause I hadn't until a couple of months ago. Thankfully they were at Gerald Veasley's Bass Bootcamp (which is also awesome and if you don't know anything about it, check it out: http://www.geraldveasley.com/bassbootcamp/scheduleandforms.htm). I took a 210 home with me to Canada cause I was super impressed, not only by the fact it weighed a little less than 30 lbs, but at the tightness, response and clarity it delivered (which is what we want as bassists, no?). When took it on a couple of gigs, the thing just kicked. It had been a while since I could consistently hear myself on every gig, and I was happy. Happy enough to make a gear vid showcasing the cab :). Check it out! (and check out the dudes at Revsound: www.revsound.net)

  2. Nice video, nice playing, great tone, great review. A+. Thanks for posting that up! Diggin' the P!
  3. Thanks man! They make really great stuff, so easy to play through.

  4. I think their 210 cab would be so much more appealing if it was an 8 Ohm cab.

    Agree, your playing is nice, but the Rev site is pretty poor indeed.

    1st, although they claim they have affordable price tags, I find no prices anywhere. Am I overlooking something?

    2nd, a 410. Really? Probably the worst cab format except boxes that use different size drivers run full-range.

    3rd, my goodness, no 115? No 112 or 212?

    4th, no info at all on what the RSM series is. It's blank.

    5th, they claim their cabs are "the finest in the industry." They must have gotten a great crop of schrooms to make this claim with a straight face.

    6th, the description for both the RS110 (a very lightly-demanded format) & RS210 reads, in part, "The diminutive cab easily keeps up with 4 guitars and a drummer at high spl levels with no microphone in a medium size venue." A 210 that easily stays with 4 guitars & drums at high SPL? And a 110 that does that, too? Seriously? I mean truly, seriously?

    7th, discounting the ridiculous claim in #6, above, for both a 210 & 110, no one even did proofreading? Is the same attention to detail paid to the boxes?

    Probably the most important portion of the site is where they show the different tolexes available.

    Sorry, you'll forgive me if I can't take RevSound with any seriousness what. so. ever.
  6. I'd have to agree that the site could use a fixer upper haha Just out of curiousity, what setup do you have now? And also based on the sound of the video, how do you think the cab sounds? You mentioned a lot of stuff about the site and choices of speakers boxes, but nothing about the actual sound. Hopefully I'll get the 110 soon, then I can do a gear review with 4 guitars and drums and we shall see how easily it cuts :)
  7. I would like to know what kind of mic you use to record the sound in your video.

    A little more info would be nice...but a phone call may answer any questions I have. Inisght into their construction might also serve well. That said: NICE sounding cabs. Fantastic selection of colors and textures of tolex. Interesting all 'round cabs. THANKS for the headz up :D
  9. I was using the stock mic on my SOny HDV 1080i (which is a pretty standard condenser mic I believe). Next time I'm gonna do it a bit more proper with a nicer mic up to the cab running through a mixer. This is my first gear vid and just wanted to get it done haha
  10. Good to know. Do you think what you hear in the vid is an accurate representation of what you heard in the room while playing?
  11. I think the mic on the camera made it sound a bit more thinner than in the room for sure. I think it still sounds pretty good! But definitely will have a better recording setup for the next slew of vids haha

    The cab sounds O.K. No complaints. If you like it, if you love it, that's all that matters.

    My setup? Ha! Setups, plural. And too many.

    LDS 215 w/3015s & a D220Ti.
    LDS 15/6 w/3015LF & 6ND410.
    BFM Omni 210 (x 2) w/2510s.
    Schroeder 412 BMF w/B&C neos (not sure model).

    all valve
    Mesa 400+
    Fender 300 Pro
    T.E. V4 & V6.

    GB Streamliner 900
    GK MB800
    T.C.E. RH450
    EA iAmp 800
    Thunderfunk 550B
    SWR Mo'Bass

    On the cutting @ high SPL in a medium venue against 4 g*****s & drums, though, the only 210 box that could even hope to do it (& I'm skeptical that even it could do it so well) would be one employing two 3010LFs & an excellent mid (like the 6ND410). Maybe two 3010HOs or MBs. A 110? If there was one of these that could do that, whomever could pull it off could retire immediately for life.
  13. fixed that for you.

    As of March 2013 a 410T was $950.

    Interesting opinion, which clearly explains why they are probably the single most popular format around... (And yes I understand that just because Toyotas are popular doesn't make them 'the best.') Still - OK - you don't like 410's. This doesn't mean others shouldn't be able to buy them, especially since they are popular...

    They have 112 and 212 now. Thought I'd seen them on the site, but it may have been a direct post from one of the principals, who does post here. I expect someone will be here before long... Both their 10's and 12's are proprietary Celestion Neo's.

    C'mon. Everybody claims that ;-)

    I can't take _you_ seriously to have formed such an opinion without having heard the products.

    I have. They're pretty amazing. I'm sure you now don't take _me_ seriously. But you don't have to believe me - the products (if not the website...) speak for themselves.

    I don't own them, and I have no stake in the company. I just know what sounds good.

    A RevSound $950 410? If I wanted a 410, which I definitely don't, lol, I'd take an Avatar over the RevSound. Any. Day. Thank you kindly :bassist: . And yes, sorry, it is a terrible format. But I didn't say they shouldn't be available for guys to give up their hard earned buck for, though. To each his own. Now a 210 x 2 "vertical" 410 is a horse of a different color.

    What I have heard are cabs from LDS, BFM, & Greenboy. And I have great trust in reviews on AudioKinesis, Baer, & BareFaced. Celestions are nice drivers, but Celestion-equipped RevSounds aren't even playing the same sport, let alone being in the same league with the aforementioned boxes.

    And since you brought it up, glad you really like them, super. But you're very correct, I. Don't. Take. You. Seriously. :D (regarding these cabs anyway).
  18. At the end of the day, its what you prefer right? There's sooo much stuff out there, just wanted to show something new. I'm gonna put up another vid with the 110 and a better recording setup, and see how it stacks up. :)

    100% correct. We're in total agreement :bassist: . Everyone should play exactly what they like.
  20. I like bass cabs with bass... :ninja:
