    ***SOLD***

    The time has come. I've loved this cab for 6 years, but it won't fit in the new car well and it looks like I'll be going with smaller cubes in the future. That being said, it is an INCREDIBLE cab! There are quite a lot of awesome things said about Phil's designs, and I am still holding on to my 8T.

    I've powered it with my DB750 and more recently my Tone Hammer 500. The cab is wired 8 ohm, and has a super punchy delivery and (as everyone says) allows a transparency that shows you what your fingers, strings, pickups and amps ACTUALLY sound like.

    It has a few minor scuffs, as it's been to about 50+ gigs, but remains 100% performing. The casters are the only issue (however small), to be honest. They roll and spin just fine but the mounting shafts are wobbly, and I don't have a wrench thin enough to get inside to tighten them. It isn't at all like they're falling off, but I would like to bring it up as full-disclosure.

    $600, and I will ship if buyer pays for shipping- please be aware that it may be *quite* bulky and $$$! I can arrange a meeting within 50-or-so miles of 54935.

    Thank you for looking!

    Post Script: It stands to mention that it is a one-owner cab from new, and I was SO interested in it that I spent just north of $1400 on it... Just sayin' :smug:

    I have this same cab, if you were within a couple hours drive you could consider this sold!

    As far as the loose wheels go, I had the same problem, no wrench thin enough to access the nut.

    Do this:
    Turn the cab on it's side. Push the locks down on the wheels and manually spin the casters in clockwise until snug. With the wheel locks in place, you can really put some torque on them, so you won't have to repeat this often.
    Works for me every time.

    GLWTS!

    Well... I know that there are a few discussions about this very subject here on TB, but I can't recall where I read them...

    Mathematically, I know it isn't as simple as 4x10= 40 speaker inches or 16x5=80, etc. By getting the feeling, sound and dimension of the cab (since those are subjective and cannot be proven or dis-proven by maths :ninja:), I would say that it feels like a XST Eden 4x10 or Ampeg 8x10. But with that being said, it is SO much different, as far as rapidity of attack and absolute unflappability... but no one ever said that an XST or Ampeg 810 were flappy...:rollno:

    Perhaps I made the correct career choice after all and stayed out of advertising!:rolleyes:

    Yes!
    Someone please buy this and put me out of my misery bump!

    Otherwise I'm looking at burning up two vacation days next week on a road trip.

    Which I can easily coax the wife into.

    Explaining the large item I picked up for the return leg won't be so easy, so I need some advice if this is still here next week.

    Should I surprise her?:bag:
