    Hello fellow tb 'ers,

    I have a +/- 130 watt twin channel carlsbro full tube head from the year 1969 and i run a rickenbacker 4003 (i guess) from 1988 thru it, but i 've being questioning myself...
    what bass cabinet will fit the best with it.

    Things I possibly want for a cabinet with it are:
    4 x 12"
    grill cloth, not grill
    not too expensive..

    For now i play with a marshall mbc-410, its pretty good,
    but not good enough :scowl:

    I know its verry much what I 'm asking, but I really are curious what cabinet will fit the best.
    Oh, the carlsbro inside = possibly a little bit the same as a marshall plexi tone with drake capacitors. (maybe useless info)
    Greatings and thank you.
    :bassist:
     
  2. have Emperor make you one: www.emperorcabs.com

    it will be custom made to your specs, for about $800

    Bergantino NV 412 w/ a custom grill?
     
  4. 200 Watts all tube ---> Peavey 412 TXF. Imagine a Ampeg SVT410HLF on steroids (Im NEVER short on volume, and i play pretty LOUD) Ignore the fingernail polish in the vent.

    hmmm, I 'm from belgium so the emperor is not really something for me.
    for the bergie verry positive, but i need to get some more money than first xD.
    The peavey, is it a good cabinet? I mean its peavey, what are the comments and revieuws about that one?
    peace.
     
  6. Peavey 412 TXF & TVX is the most underrated cab on the market (IMO)

    It can out do any 810 or 215 (Ampeg, Carvin, Peavey) that i've played.

    You can get them for well under $350.00 US, I payed $100 for mine...

    seems nice to me,
    I 'm searching for it, but can 't find it on this crappy side of earth.
     
  8. The peaveys have a metal grill, not that it should make a difference.

    Might want to see if you can get a Marshall VBC412:

    heheh, same question here.
    For now I 'm still little bit more positive about the peavey, but the marshall is easyer to get though..

    These Marshall cabs are awesome I used it with VBA400. Very rich sound, thats what I can tell.
     
  13. carlsbro used partridge transformers (alot better than drake)

    why don't you hunt down a matching cab for your head? Carlsbro used pretty decent speakers in their cabs and it'd definatly sound awesome with your ric!

    Agreed with MammothVolume... that or get that VBX412.

    That thing is designed for Marshalls top of the line 400 watt head. Enough?

    But where to buy those carlsbro cab 's...
    The one that used to be with the head is a 4 x 15 inch.
    And never seen a carlsbro cab for bass either.
    I 'm tired of my marshall mbc410 x)

    I can't seem to find any Carlsboro Gear on the USA ebay... perhaps look on the european Ebay?
     
  17. do you still have the 4X15 - it might be worth respeakering that and having a epic loud cab!

    I wish I had =O Big eminence or celestions in it than.
