Looking for a new cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Chuxxx, Dec 19, 2017.

  1. Hi there, writing from Patagonia Argentina here!First of all sorry for the long post.

    So, i’m thinking about upgrading my cab but don’t know what to look for. Basically this is my rig:


    MarkBass Compressore
    Darkglass B7Ku
    Peavey Tour 450
    Peavey 410TVX

    The basses I use are a Squier Precision CV 70’s and a G&L Tribute L2K. My tone sits on the ‘middier’ side (not boomy)influenced by Duff Mackagan and Lemmy to quote a few. I play with Dunlop Heavy Core’s downtuned to C#. Sometimes I add a chorus, or overdrive if the song needs it.

    I like what I’ve accomplished. In live situation/rehearsals I hardly get buried in the mix. The thing is this cab weighs a TON and it’s a PITA to handle. Got the opportunity to get another one but left it because of it’s weight (one PITA is better than two, right?). On the amp side, it’s OK but in a near future would want to trade it for a Mesa Subway.

    I’d want something with the same capabilities and less weight, easier to carry, like two smaller cabs. GK neo 212 is one that comes to my mind, also Orange OBC115 and would love to try a 610HLF. I know, very different cabs. I do not want to do weird mixes, just one medium sized cab easier to handle(610, 215) or two smaller preferably. What do you think?

    Very Important note: a GK 212 neo cab is worth 1000USD here, same goes with the Orange…and this are on the cheap side!!

    Like I said, I live in the south of the country over 1000miles from Capital Federal where all the big retailers are, so I’m kind of submitted to what they would ship and what already exists near my town.

    Any thoughts would be apreciated.
  2. My only suggestion is look into Bergantino HDN series for weight

    Keep us posted!
  3. Yeah, i know...it's way beyond my budget and it's almost impossible to get one over here i mean, in my country.
  4. Contact Bergantino directly

    I have no idea about inter contenental prices or shipping

    Bergantino new is pricy here but mine is very light at 26 pounds

    Bergantino has a mirror like tonal quality What you put in... it puts out

    Very clear / transparent which you may or may not prefer
  5. There are several used cabs for sale on TB Buy/ Sell Classified section
