    just got back from pickin up an NV610....

    couple months ago im peepin on craigslist and found an NV215 for 550 bucks.....WOAH!!! I had to have it. Love the cab to death, was in perfect condition essesntially brand new. No doubt.....cash in hand snagged it that night.

    ....well it happened again. peeped on criagslist again, found an NV610 for 500 bucks! the grill has a slight dent (nothin i cant bang out with a small hammer) and needs to be repainted in one section ( very minor ), but I tried it out and wow the 610 sounds ****** sweet.

    So long story short.....i got an NV215/NV610 combo for $1050....thate the price of what one sold for and what one is reselling for now. keep your eye out for deals on the bay and places cause people don't know what these cabs are worth......I mean come on the 610 alone has been selling for retail if not more these days......I don't even wanna know what I could fetch for my 215 If I put it up....


    .....pics to come in the next coming days......


    ......now to find my 60's era SVT for 600 bucks:ninja: :ninja:

    Good score. I was looking to grab that cab on craigslist. You can never have too many NV's. As for the SVT did you see the one up there about 2 weeks ago? '73 SVT head with 2 straightback cabs.

    Great deal.
    I bought My (brand new) NV610, from a ex-Bergantino dealer, for $699.00.
    He claimed this close-out price, was his dealer cost for the cab, which had
    sat unsold, on his showroom floor for two years.

    I paid the same price for my NV215. Now my NV610 stays home most of the time. Best $550 I ever spent.

    Killer deals!! Sounds like you enjoy your NV cabs as much as I love mine (I just have the NV610). I'm not surprised!

    Do they no longer make these cabs? I can't see them on their site.

    Great job! I'd be jealous, but I have no need for that much volume. :D

    There's great deals to be had for those that look. Congrats!

    Killer deal, and a killer set of cabs. Man, I love those two together! :bassist::bassist::bassist:

    And yes, the NV line has been discontinued. :crying:

    I believe I got the second to the last one made (NV610). BigMike scored the last NV's made I believe and he just dumped em. Both were covered in tolex....mmmmmmmm...yum!
