SUPER tone, SUPER Volume, Minimal weight.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
As I stated in my Fender Super Bassman Review...I was nervous of being stuck with a sales gimmick here. Being that vintage is back in style. But, I own two SWR GoLight NEO speakers (410 & 115) and I love them. Being that Fender & SWR are made by the same people, I assumed this cab would be a hit. I assumed correctly.
How is the quality of the product? Was it well made?
I have been using this Cab (8-10 gigs) in a couple months and it still looks brand new. Tolex is still in place and the fabric grill still looks great.
Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features?
The metal kickplate is a huge plus, I love that it has a horn on it. Each level of speakers is also ported. It moves a lot of air. The two wheels make it a breeze to move & don't forget its only 77 lbs. The only thing I wish they would have done handles is add recessed side handles. The handles on top and bottom are perfect until you hit a long flight of stairs.
How is the sound quality? How does the sound compare to other products you've use?
Sound is exactly what I needed. Loud heavy old school lows, great mids & a present but not over bearing high tone. Better than the SWR GoLight series.
How is the tone?
Whatever your amp head sounds like, it lets it live and breathe. I use a Fender Super Bassman for my funk/soul & afro/Cuban. And a Markbass Tube 800 for my Pop gigs. They sound like two different amps for different applications.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
In my opinion, they outdid themselves and their SWR series. 10 out of 10.
