Anyone have any thoughts on the Avatar 2X12 cabs? I plan on getting a Z-Best eventually but the Avatars are under 300, so that's a little more realistic right now. I did try a Z-Best and of course it rocked. Just can't do the $750 right now!

I just bought an empty blonde G112 for my Ghia. Good value at $159, outstanding service from Avatar. Cab is pretty basic design, quality is OK, rough blonde tolex is almost same color as the Ghia. I have an Eminence Wizard in there which still needs some break-in but it's a very nice British-style speaker and very loud.

I have an Avatar G112 with a Celestion V30 for use with my Ghia. The resulting sound is BIG, in fact the low end is excessive IMO, I have to lift the cab up off the floor to manage the bass. The cab is well built, a great value and Dave's customer service is first rate. I don't envision upgrading to another 1x12. ;D
What Laroosco said. Also watch the oxblood grill cloth, the Avatar is a different color than whats used on the Z cabinets, in case you're trying to match it up to a Z head. Click "Gear Pic" below to see the contrast.

IMHO, the Z-Best is the best hands down. I compared against Bogner, THD to name a few. It's perfectly voiced for the DRZ amps, as it should be, since it is designed and hand crafted by the great Dr. Save up and get the Z-Best. You'll never look back and wonder if you made the right choice.

Hey verticalr, were you just checking to see if Dr.Z monitored these posts, or were you trying to poke him to get a rise out of him? It worked either way!!! LOL :-) (all said with light hearted humor... just joshing, please don't take me seriously!)

roscoenyc: Almost every piece of gear I have except for my tuner has at least one knob. Those are for adjusting. PSA for the "too much bass" crowd.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.
