i have opportunity ti buy avatar cab and ive been looking for a cab with vintage 30's but this cab has kerry king g12k100's in itby celestion.

will i like these? ive been listening to sound clips but i cant tell.

i like really articulate midrange distortion like green baks and vintage 30's

should i get it?

If it dosen't sound like what you want. Only your ears can tell you that. If you want Green Backs or Vintage 30s, get a cab with those in.

i like to resemble early children of bodom tone, (i have a 5150 by the way)that id be using it with

I don't see why it wouldn't get you close to that sound with the right amp. But as i say, only you can decide if you like it. You have the opportunity to buy it right? Why not plug your head in and have a go with it?
#5
you won't like them.


you will love them.

if i was into 'hard metal', i would def prefer the K-100's over the V30's. the V30's tend to be a bit driven in the high-mid range that is too abrasive for my tastes. the K-100's have more stability, a more firm low end, and headroom for days and a crisp attack; some people may think they sound a bit sterile and a bit unresponsive.

i'd personally prefer to match the K-100's with a contemporary style cab.

my tradional does ok at brootz. the contemporarys are supposed to be better suited for it though. they are more like the mesa or orange cabs.

if you search guitar center used and then search "avatar" its the purple cab that comes up.

the guy has it on hold for me lol


I;m using a PEAVEY 5150 COMBO

how much? i paid $300 for mine in minty condition.

get them down to $300 or less if possible. that's what they sell for used, generally.

edit: wait, does the combo disengage the internal speakers when you add a cab or do the combo speakers still work when you add a cab?

I got my Trad. 212 for $175 with a fair amount of tolex dings. Mint speakers however, which were sold to buy exactly the speakers I wanted, which is what you could do if the price on the cab is right.

i was thinking a bit more like 'modern metal'. the K-100's have a great low end response that goes well with slack tunings, that is why i usually bring up the 'metal' genre.

for what you have listed i would go with a G12M-25, seems to be about where those tones are at. doesn't mean the K-100's won't do, but that is just what my mindset comes up with.
