    Has anyone here played using this amp? What cabs did you use if so? Any info on where to find one would be appreciated too. Thx.

    I just picked one up from a TBer and it's an amazing amp, unbelievably versatile and toneful. I'm not much of a knob tweaker so I haven't put it through its paces to find every tone in its box but I doubt there's much it can't do. I use it with an Avatar B410 Delta, I like the cab a lot and it's pretty neutral sounding, IMO, so it really lets the different basses and amps shine. I think the HD-500 is one of the best amps around on the used market, I wouldn't hesitate to buy a 2nd one just in case this one ever craps out on me. I'd check eBay all the time, save a search for them on there and they'll email you when one comes up. Also look into virtually every music store you can find. Try Basscentral too, they used to have one and still have some Audiophile cabs. Well worth the money bro.
