i'm interested in trying some 112, 210 and 115 cabs, so we headed off to our local GC yesterday. at a glance, the bass room was full of basses and amps. a closer look, however, revealed liimted cabs - there were ampeg PF series cabs and i think a 6x10, lots of markbass cabs, a few acoustic cabs and they said there was a fender cab, but neither they nor i could find it. there were lots more combos, however, including a bunch of the new peaveys. so we decided to head to hollywood. our first stop was sam ash, where they had one of the cabs i've been interested in trying for a while, a TC K-212. i went through madness getting a head i wanted to use to the cab as all the heads are leashed to cabs, and none of the ones near the TC were ones similar to my LH500. ultimately after trying a couple, i carried an LH500 to the cab, got everything hooked up, and mostly i liked what i heard. but there was too much brightness for me, so i went to turn off the tweeter, which is how i always have my cabs. and surprise, surprise, i couldn't find a way to do so, looked it up on sweetwater and they didn't mention the tweeter being defeatable. so across the street we went. first off, the hollywood guitar center remodel is finished, and it's much nicer than it was during remodeling in just about every way. the bass section is to the right after you walk in, and there was a single elf 2x8 on clearance and a herd of markbass cabs and combos and a couple ampeg pf cabs. there was a guy played tuned way down who took up that section for the entire time we were there, but i have tried all those cabs before and i really enjoyed his playing - very fieldly, really good. so i went to the back of the store where the fender bass amps are, and they had one cab, the rumble 2x10. i haven't tried it before, but since the only head in the area was a rumble head. i messed with it for a while, but it was hard to know how much of what i was hearing was the head and how much was the cab. and that was pretty much it for my day trying to find cabs to demo. although GC had lots of peavey combos, they had no peavey cabs at either store and neither they nor sam ash had any GK cabs at all - too bad as the CX series is on my try list; there were no hartkes with cardboard cones, and i would have tried a bugera (negative though i am with behringer) at sam ash but this time around they didn't have any. no ashdown, but i haven't seen even a used ashdown in any of those three stores for years. and i was disappointed not to find a rumble 115, which i had really wanted to try. all i could think afterward was "curses - foiled again!" any of you having better luck in this department?
