Hello everyone. I'm about to get a 2x12 cab and I have a bunch of options and was wondering what everyone thought.
Mesa Boogie Recto 2x12 $ 400
Avatar 2x12 For about $480
I was reading about this company called seismic audio. They have a unloaded cab for 180 shipped and I can get 2 Vintage 30's shipped for 180 also. Which puts me at 360. Common sense tells me to go with the Mesa but I'm down to try new stuff and really I'm bored and putting together a cab would be fun since I'm hurt and off work for awhile.
Really as a general rule for those of us that believe in "buy nice or buy twice", the only cabs I personally find appealing are;
Silverweave Marshalls with Greenbacks
Mesa is pretty much the gold standard dude. I have a recto 412 and a stiletto 212, no complaints with either.
That being said, it's a cab. It's hard to fuck up unless you build it with shit materials. There are a bunch of other cabs that are built solidly out of nice wood that sound awesome with the right speakers (which they may or may not come with stock).
etc. etc. etc.
Just pick one that's not shit and be done with it. Mesa is a no brainer though, IMO.
