Mesa/boogie.. info on this cab please

    OK I can pick this cab up locally for like 300 euro. That's around 350 dollars. But I need to know how it sounds and what it's characteristics are, because it still is quite a ride for me.

    I play a Jazz bass (dimarzio model J's) through a Peavey Mark IV & Sansamp bassdriver DI. Lately I've tried out a few cabinets and I thought a Ampeg 210 (never expected that) sounded very nice with the setup. It was warm, had tight lows and growly. The only downsides from the Ampeg were that it was 550 euro and 8 ohm. I need a 4 ohm cabinet to go down to 2 ohms later on.

    So who can provide some info about the Mesa/Boogie? Will it sound a bit the same as the Ampeg/peavey setup?


    I can also go for avatar.. for 399 euro, so that's like 450 dollar. What would be better?
  2. I had that caninet; it won't sound as aggressive in the mids as the Ampeg, but rather clean and strong in the lows. Be advised the low end drops off drastically about two meters from the speakers.
