    I just got a used Hartke 3500 ($300) and a used Traynor*(?) 2x15", the cab is loaded with JBL 2226H speakers. Sounds great, is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I will be looking for a smaller cab soon also that I can use for medium gigs and I will be covered in all playing situations.


    * The cab has an SVT style look, but there are no labels on it, the stickers on the jack plate have been pulled off and there are music notes and the numbers 5160 which looks like an address. I can take a picture of it if anyone thinks they can help me identify it.

    Full back and jack plate.
     
  4. The speakers alone are around $300 each.

    The jackplate looks homemade... My gut reaction is that the cabinet is a post-Tuck and Roll Kustom. But I may be way, way off...

    Did you get the whole rig for $300?

    The whole rig was about $450 including tax ($125 + $299.99 + 6% sales tax), the cab was being sold as a YT-15, I checked and Traynor was making the YT-15 in this style in the late 70s. The cab is old, but in good shape and rattle free. In any case it sounds great, I'm not very brand obsessed (my main bass is the Sam Ash house brand) I just go by what I like the sound of. I'll look up some Kustom cabs and see if this matches any. I know a lot of companies, especially of the era, where making SVT look-a-likes so finding out what this really is won't be too easy.
