Sound — 9
I use an Epi SG with '54 Gibson pickups (getting superdistortion in the bridge) with Grover tuners. I play all metal, and this thing is best for it. Extremly loud deep bass (rattles my walls), ear peicing highs, but all can be EQ'ed using an amp equalizer. I use a custom built amp with this (its an SS but getting a Laney VH100R) and it still sounds sick with my current amp. I get my distortion and stuff from Behringer X V-AMP. This thing is brutaly loud! Loudest cab I have ever heard.
Overall Impression — 10
As previously mentioned, I play only metal, and this cab is awesome for this genre. Cleans sound bright and have a very nice sense of depth, distortion doesnt soudns muddy, but cuts through very nice. Best bang for the buck! I would compare this to a Marshall 1960A and Mesa cabs. The quality is superb, and I would have paid double as much for this (but I'd rather not) I absolutly love it. I have compred it to Krank cabs and Mesa cabs, and the price is way better than the other ones, and sounds is just as good!
Reliability & Durability — 8
I'm giving this an 8 becuase I don't realy trust the casters (but for 5 bucks go to home depot and get some new ones). I'd play this at a gig definitly without a backup (and also becuase I can't afford a backup). It's very heavy and seems well built, and the metal corners offer extra protection, so I would trust my life with this cab.
