I'll follow the guidelines even though this isn't for an amp.


Budget? $300 USD or less

Genres? -Rock, ambient, blues, wee bit o' metal

New or Used? Either, though I haven't been able to find much locally.

Home or Gig? Gigging, lots of gigging. (Will be almost every day this summer, more on that later.)

Closest City? - Lincoln, Nebraska. I can drive to Omaha if it's a really good deal.

Current Gear? - Sold the Peavey, a Jet City 22h head is on it's way to me right now.

I need to get a cab soon, I would prefer it to be a slant 4x12 because I'll be needing one this summer. I'm playing guitar for a camp band so I'll be playing outdoors, about 5-6 days a week, un-miked, and I feel like the extra projection from a 4x12 would be good. I've looked at cabs (online) by Kustom, Bugera, Jet City (2x12 only), Acoustic, Ibanez, B-52, and Raven, but I'm not really sure which one would be the best (or if they're all pretty much the same). Suggestions?

You can usually find Marshall 1960 cabs on Craigs List for $300-350. For that price, you can't really do any better, unless you happen to stumble upon an Avatar (not very likely).

I check the 3 Craigslists that are within driving distance of me multiple times a day. So far nothing has popped up besides Crate 4x12s for ridiculous high prices.

Yeah, your CL is pretty dead.

Offer these guys $300 and see what they say?

If your Craigslist is pretty dead, there's always the Used section of Guitar Center's website. I've seen Marshall 1960's dirt cheap all around their site, and if you are willing to save up a bit more, you could probably get a Mesa 4x12 for around $400 (probably not in great condition though).

Also, lopoline, trm and rocket cabs are all very well built and extremely cheap. Google any of them and you'll find them.

I cant really tell, but it doesn't have the naked lady in the corner, so maybe a 5150 cab?

that looks like an old 5150 angled cab. they arent bad the sheffield speakers are kinda meh but hey it does the job.

look for an OLD crate blue voodoo cab. the old ones had V30s in them and they sell for around 200-250 used. like suggested before the guitar center used website should have them. or try ebay.

http://lincoln.craigslist.org/msg/2801346578.html this guy is worth talking to. get him to $300. upgrade the speakers later, that's good wood right there.

Can anyone recognize this cab and tell me if it's a good deal? If it's the 6505 cab then it seems like a decent deal.


Looks like its a 412EX cab. Speakers are pretty meh, but not terrible. I definitely would not pay anything over $200 for it. I got my cab for $120 on Craigslist and its way more badass than that.

Strictly available in Europe.

Pretty much the Jet City 212 is going to be your best bet new.

Used, you might find a Mesa 212 or 412, Avatar, Orange, or the Crate Blue Voodoo cabs. I'd also see if you can find a Marshall 412MF cab.

My local search has been pretty fruitless (Cabs in terrible condition, or guys just asking way too much.) Does anyone have any opinion or experience with these?

DO NOT get that cabinet. Instead...

Peavey 6505 cabs also aren't horrid and go for pretty cheap on Guitar Center's used site as well.

Just a thought..check out seismic audio. I'm looking at 212 but they seem like nice cabs and you can upgrade the speakers later.
