Great budget cab to be heard with
By: Josh from Greensboro, NC
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
So, for a cheapo cabinet, I'm impressed. Construction seems sturdy, decent quality components, and decent tone. If money is the issue stopping you from upgrading from your combo amp to a mini-, half-, or full-stack, check out these Peaveys.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Very nice, but basic, 4x10 box. No horn, which I find a bit disappointing. The drivers' frequency response covers the HF range fairly well, but doesn't have the sharp attack that I like when playing slap. Cab is heavy. But, for this price, I wouldn't expect to get neo drivers. Handles are well positioned for carrying the cabinet in a balanced manner. Sealed cabinet produces good tones.
How is the tone?
The tone is certainly not a very hi-fi, accurate tone. It is decent gear that is loud and clear. If you need to be heard, and you are on a budget, this is good gear to purchase. For the price, the sound is great. If you're looking for hi-fi, studio accurate stuff, save your money and spend the money on the high end gear from SWR, GK, MarkBass, etc.
Overall, HF leaves a little to be desired from lack of a horn tweeter. WHEN I order two of these cabinets, I'll probably have horn tweeters installed to fit my style of playing.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
