Hey guys, just bought me a nice series 1 rectoverb! I am looking at cab options and a little overwhelmed at all my choices. I think I've narrowed it down to a mesa or an avatar cab tho...If I were to go mesa would a rectifier or a stiletto cab better suit my needs? I hear people talking about the rectifier cab being a little boomy? I play mostly modern hard rock, somewhat pop punk, reggae, and blues. I've tried my friends marshall with the celestion 75's in it and it just wasn't my style and I think the v30's are what Im looking for (maybe in combo with 2 other speakers?) Anyway im looking used most likely cause of price restrictions but what are your thoughts between the rectifier, stiletto, and avatar traditional cabs?? thanks!
Do you still have your Tourmaster? Update your sig.
I can't really speak to the Mesa cabs but I own a Traditional Avatar 212. I hear the Mesa cabs are made really well. "Boomy" may not be a bad thing for what you play. Wait for someone with more Mesa cab experience.
I will say that my Avatar is very well built and sounds great. I went with something less traditional speaker wise and got a G12H30 and a Classic Lead 80. I would also recommend their Hellatone speakers or possibly an Eminence Wizard or ManOWar. Contact Dave over there and get his suggestion as well. Good Luck,
