I'm in the market for a good 2x12 to pair with a Peavey 5150 head. I play Rhythm in a Metal/MeloDeath band and need a very heavy and thick tone. I basically have 2 options that I like so far:


a used Mesa Boogie Rect. 2x12 horiz. cab: $350, no shipping (local)

new Avatar G212H Custom 2x12 cab: $380 (including shipping)

I can get both cabs with 2 V30s which is what I want, so really the only question is the type of wood used, I know about speakers but not about what wood does what for your tone.

Can anyone help me out?


EDIT: I have the option of putting Hellatone 60's in the Avatar for the same price as the V30's, I know they are basically broken in V30's so I dont see why I WOULDNT get the Hellatone version, I've also heard that the Hellatone's sound a bit better compared to V30's broken in the "standard" way.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

The Mesa is cheaper, much higher quality, the speakers are probably already broken in and it will sound better.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Mesa. Avatar's are good quality if you're in the market for a new cab, but if you can get something like a Mesa cheaper then you definitely wanna go that route.
