1x12

  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So long story short I got a killer deal on a new/mint Mesa 1x12 cab that will be coming in soon, so I’m looking for a lunchbox or mini head to pair with it to use at home. Need suggestions! And yes, JBA5150. Definitely considering a 6505 MH, just not sure if it’s the best option (probably is...

    I'm having trouble deciding what to keep and what to sell off. I much prefer the size/weight of the MT15 and the accompanying 1x12, but I prefer the tone and self validation of the 6505 (full size) and Mesa 2x12 (I think the higher wattage lends to more headroom and better low end with the MT15...

    Yep..finally all done :yesway: It's made of 17mm MDF (HDF) with a 13mm ply baffle & a semi-open back. Speaker's an Emi Legend GB128. Had areal problem with the tolexing 'cause I apparently used the wrong glue & the stuff would'nt dry/bubbled like hell. Anyway, long story short I ripped...

    Thinking of getting rid of these, thought I'd see if anyone here has anything they'd like to trade for them. Probably only interested in guitars. Both are in mint condition, come boxed as new. I'll get pics if you need em, but there's not a lot to see.

    I bought a Mesa Mini Rectifier slant 1x12 a while back and had a go at micing it with an SM57, but all I can get out of it is a very boxy sound, no matter where I place the mic. I'd assume it is just the nature of a 1x12, but I've seen plenty of clips of people using a similar set up and they...

    An amp which is pretty much a 'bucket list' amp for me has come up on the used market and I'm considering grabbing it. I've been considering getting an amp again lately as I want to get away from sitting in front of the computer screen (axe fx) whilst playing guitar. 100 watts is a lot for a...

    Few things to ask here. I find with a cab/amp it always starts to sound best at some weird point when it feels like the speaker is "pushing". Kinda like the amp on low sounds good but, you add a bit more volume and it kicks out a lot more. Just me? It always feels like a speaker effect rather...

    Just been looking into Mesa 1x12 cabs, and I noticed the cab Petrucci uses in the 'proto playthrough' video doesn't seem to be available here in the EU. Looks like he's using the Recto 1x12, but all I can find here is the Mini-Recto 1x12 They look to be the same according to the specs listed on...

    I'm like flipping out here lol...just wanted to tell you peeps that my toys are here! :cool: I didn't even open anything yet. I kept in touch with my sales rep and at the last second (right before it shipped), I canceled the Egnater 1x12 cab and went for the cheap 2x12 Marshall cab. I know I...

    I've always loved these things - I think Fender was the first company to get the "modern" low wattage tube amp thing right. Lush clean channel, enough gain to get some gritty and sustain but that's not really where the focus is, about enough power to break up at club levels, and most importantly...

    I've always thought these were pretty killer little combos for clean playing, and I really liked the looks of the tweed-covered "NOS" ones. Snagged this at the end of last week from the used section of a GC out in Cali, and it showed up absolutely mint - better than I'd hoped, with the plastic...

    Picked these up this morning, $470 for the pair. Now I just need an amp worthy of them :agreed:

    I need a great 1x12 to start building my compact bedroom/rehearsal rig. I'm starting with a Tiny Terror and in the future I intend to be upgrading the amp head and keep having the 1x12 cabinet. The cabinet is a keeper, the amp not so much. I will be upgrading it, as I get richer. :cool: It's...

    This thing is just crazy awesome. Cleans are amazing, especially with the delicious reverb, and the Pushed on channel 1 is fucking outstanding. Vintage is really cool too, great for mid gain rock. Modern is just fucking amazing though, particularly with this cab. It just socks you in the face...

    Hey guys, The last few shows my bad has played have been at smaller shows where the PA was garbage. One place mic'd up the guitars, but didn't have a monitor for the drummer. The other didn't mic anything but the drums and vocals. They both had HORRIBLE acoustics. At both shows my drummer...

    Hey brothers of metal, :metal: Recently one of these Mesa Mini 1x12 Slant Recto cabinets has popped up locally for auction. I might be able to score it for cheap. But I was wondering if it will be any useful.. At the moment I own a Blackstar HT-5R combo which already has a 12" speaker (custom...

    I recently got back into playing electric guitar after a 5 year break, got a Jackson guitar and then last weekend a B-52 AT-100 tube amp. I got it with the matching 4x12 cab it often comes with, which sounds decent for the money, but a little loud for my needs at the moment. Thinking about...

    Firstly, because I've never had one. Secondly, because my 2nd band is starting back up again (apparently?!) and fuck moving shit around all the damn time. I've got enough cab to leave my 2x12 and TriAxis at the coverband space, and the 4x12/DC-10 at the other band's space. That'd leave me...
