"I'm sort of surprised I don't see more people using Avatar 4x12's. Is there any reason why?"

Asked by Anonymous

I don’t know. I see a lot of the 2x12s around. But maybe their 4x12s are just priced a little high when there are lots of good used non-custom cabs out there.

"A couple things! 1. Thoughts on ,the Musicman HD-130 2. Good 6x12 cabinets? 3. Any thoughts on the Acoustic 450?"

Asked by Anonymous

1. Hell yes
2. Probably gotta go custom, I would think?
3. Hell yes

"Ohhhh also! What do you think/know about the Peavey MAX 800? As well as the Ampeg Isovent? I've owned/own both and all my band mates have very much under appreciated both."

Asked by elliottmillercheckit

No experience with either. That Isovent looks interesting though.

"What is your opinion on the peavey mark iii musician. I feel like that amp is well overlooked in the gear scene, I could be wrong though. Also what cab should I get to go under my Ampeg SS140c combo amp? I was thinking of making an oversized 2x12 cab (similar to some of the Sunn 212s), however I hardly know anything about wood work."

Asked by elliottmillercheckit

Great amps, indeed overlooked but beginning to gain more of a foothold.

I support trying to build a cab yourself. Carefully, of course. Fun project, save money, learn a lot. Lots of good resources to do so online!

"hey, sweet blog. whats the situation with connecting an external speaker to a vt-22, does doing this bypass the combo's own speakers? I'm sure it'll not be necessary as I understand they're insanely loud but I'm just curious. You a fan of the vt-22?"

Asked by Anonymous

The VT-22 has both a “speaker” jack and an “extension speaker” jack - the latter is only to be used if you’re running an additional cab along with the combo speakers, which are connected by a little cable you can just unplug if you want to bypass them and use something else.

I like VT-22s - they are indeed insanely loud, but because the speakers are so close to the tubes they can very easily become microphonic unless you buy damping rings or something. I prefer the separate V-4 head for that reason…a lot more manageable to carry as well.

"Recommendations for a cab that would be good for both guitar and bass? I play a broad range of styles, heads, pedals, etc. Something bigger than a 1x12 preferably."

Asked by Anonymous

Any 2x15. Good, wide-range/broadband speakers, maybe JBLs or something. Peavey, Sunn, w/e.

"Would like to hear more about the Jet City mods. I understand that every Hovercraft amp is literally an existing Soldano or Peavey amp modded to breath hellfire and re-shelled. Interested in figuring out where he found the Dwarvenaut mod so I can do it to mine."
