After countless days spent trolling craigslist, i picked up a 5150. The presence knob is broken off, but i'll get that fixed eventually. I met the guy, shout out to Johnathan if he's on here, at World Music in Nashville, and while i was waiting, i saw this Avatar 4x12 sitting there and i decided to pick that up too to make the day successful.

All of this cost me just over $600. I'm flat broke, but i don't care. My rig is almost complete. All I need is a TS9 and a Decimator.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

Still, great buy

Thanks guys. The thing sounds better than i expected. I'm absolutely thrilled with the 5150 and the avatar. I put my Bassman head through the avatar and it sounds great too.

You should get you a little avatar open back combo and run a stereo rig ABY, cleans from the bassman and dirty with the 5150.

Definitely would be a rig I would be jealous of.

Happy NAD man.

Yeah, saving up takes time but that would be a killer setup.

Good choice on the decimator, instead of a TS9, I'd look into a Maxon OD9. They have a more similar chip to the original Ibanez TS pedals because Maxon actually built them.

Maxon OD9, OD808 or a Krank Krankshaft would be good I think.

HNGD anyway Looks pretty badass and that is an awesome price.

Couldn't you run them both through the cab by using one for 2 of the speakers and the other for the other 2?

I thought I heard that somewhere.

Actually, great idea. You could do this, however; you would have to wire the cab as 2 separate sets of speakers. When a cab has 2 jacks, they are either for different ohm inputs (mono/stereo) or daisy chaining (going from head>cab>cab). If it has the stereo option, you should be able to run both heads into the cab. Keep in mind that the ohms change.

See i was wondering the same thing. I noticed that it had the two input jacks on the back of the cab, but it wasn't labeled as to the difference. I know that all four speakers are 8 ohms.

If that's the case it's probably set up for mono and daisy chaining.

It wouldn't be hard at all to rewire it to be stereo.

Yeah i just looked on the avatar site and it said it was for mono daisy chaining.

I have the original Bassman 212 cab that matches the head, so i'll just use that and an aby switch.
