Traded my Avatar 2x10 for a JBL 1x12

    I've been looking to off my first run Avatar 2x10 for a while now - it's too big for a small cab, and too small for a large one. I went to a music store that specializes in used stuff today and saw this little JBL 1x12 cabinet (MR812). I picked it up, and it was very light - probably 40 pounds or so, looked on the back and it said 8 ohms ... played it, and it sounded great. Pretty honky sounding, but in a good way.

    I understand this cabinet is primarily for guitar, but it sounded fine with my bass and GK head. Now, I've got a small little GK400RB-III and JBL 1x12 setup that sounds great and is stinkin' loud for the size. Anyway, it will satiate my GAS until my Bassman-matching LDS 2x12 / 2x6 is finished.

    Check one out if you see it (and play primarily 4 string).
