    I read on this forum somewhere, that
    when buying used, sometimes you have to wait
    awhile, but something will come up.
    And those words couldn't be more true :)

    Today I went into music-go-round
    and to my suprise they had a genz benz 4x10xb.
    The cost of this cab was(drum roll please)
    299 with tax. Well I went home got my wallet,
    played through it for 5 min, and said it's mine.
    Sometimes patience is good, but sometimes you just
    have to jump on an opurtinituy. It doesn't sound as
    nice as my other 4x10 but it sounds good. And I can work
    with the sound, and heck 500 watts rms, ya can't beat that.

    Well for all of you lookin' for used just remember
    patience does pay off. But sometimes you just have to jump
    at an opportunity.

    Sincerely,
    Greg P

    P.S. keep your mind open to things you would'nt have considered before. Take me for example I was shoppin for a 15. Later :)

  2. My god I envy you. lolol. Its a pity Australian Dollars are up the cahoots. can't buy anything. I found a warehouse on the net that sells speakers (12" and 15") for like $50 american. No point tho cause it would cost me just as much in exchange rates. Politics Suck! :D

    I am still being patient tho, something will come up and I think reel big bassist has proved that waiting is worthwhile.
    Good on ya!

    :D

    Congratulations! You did get a good deal! I used to have two of those cabs --powered by Gallien Krueger 2000RB. The amp failed me twice but the GB 4-10TXBs never let me down. GREAT sounding speaker/cab design.
