    Ok, so I was totally disgusted with how much Mesa wanted for their 2X12 Lone Star cab to go with my Rect-O-Verb head. At that point, I decided I could build a cab for cheaper, so out into the unknown I ventured. Now, I have the cab built and I go to order my Celestion C90s from Mesa (because I LOVE them) and to my suprise prices have gone up 20 bucks in the past week...even more suprising, the 2X12 cab in the store rose by 40 bucks!!! So, Mesa, what gives?

    I digress...so what I need is a relatively inexpensive stand-in for Mesa C90s. All suggestions are welcome as I'm ready to buy now! ;-)

    Thanks for contributing to my GAS!

    I would consider the Avatar Hellatone 60. They are Celestion vintage 30s hat are already broken in. Great speakers.

    Yikes, I thought they were broken in G12H30s. Thanks for the heads up.
