The title basically says it all. I have a mesa boogie rectoverb and i need a cab that is a lot better than a behringer.

I've heard that mesa's react very differently with different speakers, so what cabs would go really good with a mesa?

If possible list 3 or 4 because i have to find them locally and one single one might be hard to find.

I cant afford a mesa cab so please dont suggest. I already know Avatar, but those are really hard to find.

BTW i forgot to mention, the cab has to be a 4X12 and im definitely buying used

you order avatar directly off the internet if i remember correctly. I don't really know much about cabs in general though, a speaker i like is the Celestion lead 80 ( i think that's the name) and the Eminence Texas Heat speakers, those are cool. Good luck with your hunt

^^^This.

Trying to find used Avatars is a pain, but they're out there, especially on eBay.

Another solution is to find any old empty cab of high quality, and fill it with what you want.

Lots of people would turn their noses up at old Randall or Crate cabs from the 90's, but they're built like brick s#!thouses and sound great with, say, a new set of scumbacks.

I have a triple rectifier which I play through a peavey valveking 4X12, and it sounds pretty good to me. I also didn't have the $1000 to spend on the mesa cab, and the peavey is $420 new at guitar center.

not saying you don't, but why do you need the 4x12"? You could probably get a much better 2x12" cab for the price, and unless your doing massive gigs, that should do you fine!


I just prefer the extra push that it gives, plus its nice to have one for my styles of music, all in all, i just really prefer them.

I was looking at some Carvin cabs, are any of them any good? about the randalls, do how do the stock speakers sound? Im not a tekki and i just really dont want to have to go to the trouble of swapping speakers.

Changing speakers is very easy, especially if the cab is using the clip-on type of wires.

In your situation, you have these options

- Find a used Marshall 1960A (They can commonly be found on CL for $300-$400, sometimes less for beat up ones).
- Wait for a deal on a Mesa cab to pop up (I've seen them as cheap as $450)
- Save a bit more and buy an Avatar cab (You do get your own speaker choice this way)
- Buy an old or empty cab, and swap in/add speakers.

If you do the last option, do check out Warehouse guitar speakers. Great speakers for bargain prices. I love mine.
- Gibson Flying V 120 #1 (White)
- Gibson Flying V 120 #2 (Cherry)
- Gibson SG Standard ('61 style)
- Jackson DK2M

- ENGL Fireball 60
- Avatar 4x12

- Many pedals, plus other stuff

You can easily find a Marshall 1960A on the cheap. They are fairly well built and even if you don't like the way they sound, you can always swap out the speakers.

You're playing a Triple Rec through a Valve King?? $420!?? Jesus Christ dude..

Search your local craigslist for deals, look for avatars, marshall 1960s, or any high quality cab. You won't have too much trouble finding one, the other day I saw a Marshall 1960a cab going for $450 mint on my CL, so it's not that rare.

The Valveking speakers are possibly the worst Peavey makes.

TS try AB Custom Audio http://www.abcustomaudio.net/. This guy makes ridiculous cabs for super cheap. You can customize it the way you want. Right now, hes got 4x12 cabs for $179. Yeah, try to beat that anywhere. They come unloaded though, so load em up with some Warehouse Guitar Speakers for not a whole lot and you are good to go.

Used Avatar's (or new ones) are one of the best options for cheap, quality cabinets. If your hearts not absolutely set on a 4x12 then you could find some really good cabinets in the $400 price range, such as this Mesa Boogie 2x12 for $450. A 2x12 can definitely produce amazing tones just like a 4x12, so don't limit yourself! Good luck!

^true. The absolute best cab and speaker combo I have ever heard in my life or every played on was a single 15" cab. Don't limit yourself to a cab size or setup because thats what's expected of you. Make your own way...thats what rock music was built on.

I'm no cork-sniffer, but I'd avoid a cab that's assembled with nails.

There are in your backyard, I'd check some of these out.

Otherwise I rec a new Avatar 212 with whatever you want for $400. Stick it on top of an empty cab or box with a black cloth over it if it makes your penis feel better.
