I am getting an orange micro dark, and I need a cab. I found some B-stock panama cabinets on reverb, that are cheap, but not so cheap as to make me think they are low quality. The 210 has Panama British Ceramic 10” speakers, and the 212 has Panama AV30 Custom Driver (V30-style). I play mostly metal, and my main axes are a gibson sg with alnico buckers and an affinity squire with little 59', duckbucker, and jb jr. pickups (I have modded my squire to kingdom come, it plays awesomely and sounds great, it is on par with my friends HWY 1 HSS strat). However, a good clean tone is also important to me. Which cabinet is better for me? Also, if the 2x12 would sound better, is it worth the extra 90 bucks?
i haven't tried those panamas, but normally, at least for heavier tones, 12" is the safer choice. That's not to say that there are no 10" speakers suitable for heavier stuff, nor that all 12" speakers are suitable for heavier tones, but yeah. 12" is safer (especially if the ones you're looking at are V30-alikes).
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Et tu, br00tz?
Even their 2x12s seem quite reasonably priced...

Of course, PRICE isn't the deciding factor for cabs. Know some UGers have tried them...but I'm not one.
