Mesa amp/cheap cab suggestions

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by timidbassist, Jan 19, 2005.

  1. Ok, so here it goes, please bear with me, i must explain everything otherwise you wont understand why i would want to do this... So i have someone interested in buying my Carvin R1000 amp, and RL 410 cab combo for a very good price, but i need to sell it to him soon or he wont pay me the same amouny he originaly offered. So i want to take the money i would get from him to put towards a Mesa half stack, however i cant be without my setup for very long so i couldnt get the money and save for a Mesa half stack so i was thinking of a solution. What if i were to buy a good Mesa amp that i would be able to afford right away, and get a cheaper cab for now until i can afford a Mesa cab, this way i got good money for my Carvin and im half way to a Mesa half stack. First is this a good idea? Second what is the best priced 410 cab out there that would sound decent with say a BB 750?
    Thanks in advance!

    You might want to check out the Avatar line.. I hear good things about them and are not too $$$ ...I have never heard them so I cannot comment on how they sound.. Good luck with your transaction...

    It seems like plenty of players have had good luck with Avatar, but two cab manufacturers whom I have tried and whom I heartily recommend are Dr. Bass and Low Down Sound.

    And FWIW, I think that you would be happy for quite some time with cabs from either of these makers, powered by a quality Boogie head.
  6. Awesome, thanks alot for the help guys! The info was great. By the way i really like your quote Tom "Dont blame me, i didnt vote for him" lol
