    My local music store has a used 2-12 Avatar vertical cab (the one with the upwards-facing top speaker--neato!) and Vintage 30s in it. I'd like to use it for my Pal V32H and $159 sounds like a good deal and the 8 ohms matches my head. I've never owned an Avatar cab but they seem to have good rep. Is this a good deal?

    Yes, good deal. The speakers alone (when new) are worth that price.

    You would be a silly goose if you didn't march right in there and buy it.

    Thanks, guys! I thought this sounded like an awfully solid deal. And that top speaker angle will let me hear myself super well in the most raucous jam sessions. I know these V30s are awfully bright, but the V32H has very effective EQ, I can dial in pretty much anything to compensate.

    You could sell the speakers and recoup the cost or sell the cab and recoup the cost.

    Jump on it.

    BTW, I like their cabs.

    Hell of a deal for an already great-value-for-the-money cab man! I've been very happy with my open backed 2x12.

    Yeah, this one is closed but I totally dig the tilt-up top speaker deal! How many times do you just need to hear your ax a bit more directly to get the right interaction in a loud, raucous band setting? This solves the problem and places your head nice and high right at your fingertips. Being 6-4 that counts for a lot!
