Acme Low-B 112 FW Series III - Price drop
£370
Parma, Italy

Recommended Posts

Price drop to 400 euro (350£ roughly)

 

Hi guys,

 

here we go with a cab that doesn't show up very often: ACME Low-B 112 FW (flat wound), 8ohm version. Up for sale at 370£ - 400 Euro
Perfect working order and very good-to-perfect visual conditions (just light evidences of careful use).

Used only for Jazz, Acid Jazz and light funky venues as second cab of the small old Gallien Combo MB 150, both with double bass and with electric bass, and possibly once or twice with the MB500 fusion head but never overloaded or stressed in any way.
I heard comments about ACMEs in general being limited on the volume side but I've never experienced issues, even if the Gallien drives it at 150W only. I anyway don't need serious punch or loudness to be honest (in small clubs and at the rehearsal I use the combo alone).

I'm putting it here for sale as I'd like to change and taste something new, I've been quite happy with the cab and I'd consider trading it with a light and easy to handle 1x10 or 1x12 that I would use the same way (I would also happily consider the FR version of the same cab or another ACME cab).
If you have something you want to propose just throw a message my way, worst I'll say is no thanks.

 

Cab is locted in Italy, very close to Parma and Piacenza. WIll definitely consider shipping it worldwide at buyer's cost. Of course if you're passing by you're welcome to give it a try, never refused to offer wine and parmisan while testing rigs.

Paypal accepted.

Interesting. I generally don’t like the sound of tweeters in cabs but hear this is quite ‘dark’ voicing. What do you think?

Hi @ped,

 

The FW version of this cab (ie this one) has no tweeter.

I don't have the tweeter even in the GK combo, I simply don't feel the need for it, but if you know you like or need that feature the cab may probably fall short on clarity for you?

 

I don't feel the cab like dark, but it may depend on taste..?

 

 

Thanks

Luca

 

Edit after thinking a bit more on this point, and considering the answer might help a lot of eventually interested people that probably haven't had the chance to try the cab personally: what the cab might be lacking for someone is the fact that the highs have no big sparkle. Trying to described a sound is always difficult so please be patient with my description of the thing: let's say that if you like the millerish sound you will get all the beef but you might miss some detail in the highs.

 

That kind of bassist however would probably use this cab paired with a second one on top I assume, which would probably solve the "problem".

I can't think of any better reason to visit Italy 😃

Owen led me down this path, I now have two of these with Tweeters and never want for anything else.

good luck with the sale
