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!)
GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.
