I'm planning on getting a peavey windsor head, but im gonna need a cab. the windsor cab is like $260, and the marshall 1960 cabs i want are like 600. I found a peavey xxx cab at a pawn shop for 300, so i;ve been looking at that. does anyone know anything about the xxx? is it a good deal or should i stay away from it?
from my personal experience I've found that the cabs are very nice. good quality and good sound.
The XXX cabinet is not a bad cab at all and $300 is a fair price. I would try to haggle a little and see if you could pick it up for around $250. Just to let you know the Windsor cabinet is pretty bad and does not sound good with the Windsor head. I also have the Windsor and just picked up a B52 ST412 loaded with Vintage 30's and the tone is almost orgasmic.
They aren't great, or bad, but they are good cabs. The speakers are often said to be close in comparison to Celestion G12T-75's.
