"Great Value for Home or Studio"

Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
I rate it overall a little lower than I rate each of the features perhaps unfairly. The value is great but it's not a MESA or Marshall cab. Disregarding price, I would rate it a 5 (Average). The plywood construction is good. The workmanship is good. The drivers are plain. The features are great. It's not road worthy. It's a good cab for great price. Therefore: Overall = 8.

The sound is fine but the drivers are not going to blow your socks off. I ran my MESA Triple Rec through it and I could tell the speakers were wondering what was going on. The bass response was a bit muddy. I replaced the drivers and now it holds its own.

The cabinet is well made for the price. It's plywood! Not MDF! That's a big help. The switchable impedance is a nice feature. Even when I swapped out the speakers, I was able to keep the mono/stereo flexibility. I would rate it a 10 for the complete value if the drivers could handle more. The cabinet is quite good for the price.

Ease of Use
As simple as it comes. Plug in with the correct impedance and roll it out!

If this was a $600 cabinet, I would not be impressed. You can definitely tell it's lighter and not as sturdy as the higher end cabs. However, for this price, you really can't complain. I would not recommend it for touring or road use but from studio to home travel it is fine. The read more workmanship is respectable. The finish is quite good. I expect this cabinet to last my lifetime as long as I treat it with appropriate care.

For home or studio, it's tough to imagine a better deal... unless the speakers were voiced a little differently.

Manufacturer Support
No need. It's a cabinet.

The Wow Factor
I think I'm getting another one. It looks good and is easily upgraded. I wouldn't say I lust for it but the value is great.
