    Hey all,

    I'm a long time guitar player but new to bass.

    I recently picked up a nice Jazz Bass V w/ an Audere Z6 preamp - sounds great but now I need something to plug it in to.

    Part of my guitar rig is a Musicman 212-RH150 like this one:

    I also saw one ion this TB thread for sale:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f127/fs-ft-vintage-musicman-212-rh-cab-your-hd130-hd-150-clean-864041/

    Due to that thread, and some things I've heard about it being a dual purpose cab, I'm assuming that it's suitable for bass but I thought I'd ask you fine folks before I started looking at separate amp heads...otherwise I might look into a combo of some kind.

    Thanks!! :bassist:
     
  2. Depends on what tone you are after. It might stand up to mid rangey low powered bass, but its not going to last with a beefier sound. I would be looking at a true bass cab.

    I am pretty sure that they are a bass cab. I used to own one. Many years ago I talked to an old sales rep and he said that the RH stood for Reflex Horn. Not sure about that but I used the cab with a musicman head. Sounded good at moderate volume. Check to make sure it is loaded with bass speakers.
     
  5. I used one of these back in the late 70s and early 80s with a Music Man head. The local dealer was selling them as bass cabinets. Sounded great as a bass amp cab; wish I still had that rig, in fact.

    The stock speakers may not be able to withstand a big bass head, but those could always be replaced with newer, higher-wattage speakers and the cabinet would still rock just fine IMO.
