Hey guys,
I just was wondering of anyone has experience with Avatar cabinets. I recently got a Mesa/Boogie Dual Recto and I now have to track down a cabinet. I was originally dead set on a Mesa 2x12 Rectifier cabinet but after reading some reviews of Avatar cabinets, i'm considering one since they cost less. I don't really have the option to try an Avatar cabinet since I live in Canada and the only distributer in Canada is across the country from me. So, will it sound similar to a Mesa cab and how good are they overall? Sorry about the long post and thanks.

I beleive IbanezSZ4Life has a Dual Recto and an Avatar 4x12, wait for him for a full review on it or PM him.

From what I have heard, they are great cabs and great values. The recto cab is going to have more low end than the avatar. Other than that, like said. Wait for ibanez to give you the full review.
