    A 210 or 212 cabinet, with an amp for $300? I doubt it.

    You're dreaming. There's no such animal, at least nothing that'll work in a live gig situation.

    You might check around at garage sales and on eBay, if you get really lucky you might find something in that price range.

    The only other thing I can suggest would be military surplus stores and the like, but these days people have caught on to the surplus thing and they're likely to be just as expensive as original parts (well, almost).

    How about a Pignose B100V? I've seen them on eBay for pretty cheap, they don't have enough watts to use in a live rock band, but they're good for practice and quiet coffee house type gigs.
