Cab recommendations for MESA D800


Recommended Posts

 

I Recently picked up a second hand Mesa D800, and I'm looking for a lightweight cab to pair it with. I've got an Ampeg 410HLF, but it's too big and heavy for smaller gigs.

What are you recommendations?

 

Thanks in advance.

I use my Mesa D800 Subway through one or two Barefaced Super Compacts, sublime. The clarity of the BF Super Compacts deliver the full range of the Voicing control and handle the Deep switch with ease.

What type of music, and will the smaller cab be just handling stage volume or having to cover the whole venue? That said, I think a Barefaced 2x12 cab would be a great solution, plenty of power handling, not too low down so only your ankles hear it, great dispersion and lightweight/portable. I’d go for one of their 2x12 cabs rather than 1x12 purely as imo it can do so much more, tho many gigging a single Barefaced 1x12 cab seem plenty happy enough.

I usually play smaller venues like pubs and clubs, and most of the time I go for PA support and miced cab if I can get away with it. I'll check out barefaced, haven't looked into them before. What are you guys' opinions of the Ashdown ABM 210 and the Fender Rumble 210?

The ABM210 is a nice cab, sounds great. Stick it on its end you have a vertical 210 which will be better for dispersion.

I can confirm this as I have two of them 👍
