    They're nice cabs, but the unloaded ones I picked up (Zilla fatboy oversized copy) were a little messy. Not the same build quality as Mesa or Marshall. Looks great, but the innards just looked a little sloppy to me.

    If it sounds half as good as it looks, you'll be in good shape :hbang:

    Its awesome to be honest. I don't gig with it unless i have to, but so far there have been no issues since i got it. Fedex damaged inside the back panel during shipping but its all taken care of now and Brandon was very accommodating. I love the tone, it sounds just like a 4x12 and as good as any other cab i have plugged into. I worry about the finish sometimes but so far so good.

    Edit: Its really a satin finish. Not as glossy as it looks in the pics but i think that adds a dimension to my tone.

    A) Your cab looks SICK.

    B) Brandon was awesome to deal with when I ordered my "custom" stuff.

    Love mine! I ordered a custom vertical 2x12 with K100s. Versatile, tight, looks fantastic!

    I have had it over a year now and i dont think il ever sell it. It sounds great, very well built and looks sick as well. I clean it every day so its still perfect white thats the only con to it.

    I picked up a used one off of Brandon from his shop in Orlando. I asked for vintage 30s in it, and when I played it i thought it sounded okay. It sounded a little harsh, but i assumed it was okay because vintage 30s are harsh by themselves and possibly not broken in yet either. I bought it because it was supposed to be specced to an orange cab, but cheaper, with LEDs. So i thought it was a steal.

    But when i plugged my pod hd and axe into with out the speaker cab simulators on, the cab sounded horrible. So i always played the cab with the sims on. Months later i decided to open the back of the cab and they weren't even the speakers I asked for.

    Heres what he gave me.

    I know i should have looked when i first got the cab, thats my fault, and I understand that. But to run a company and to do this is, is missed up. I brought this to his attention, and said he would install V30s in for me. But its been a week now and haven't gotten a reply from him.

    ^ Well, technically, V30s can stand for Veteran 30s too :p.

    But yeah, I get it, sh*t is messed up. That is no way to trick or treat a customer. Pun intended.

    Why do I still want to buy one though :scream:

    I know, but I still said Celestion vintage 30s in the email to be clear when I was talking to him.

    All aesthetic appeal, which is great and all, but too many players get lost in the aesthetic appeal... The sound on these cabs is meh... Seen three bands live use them and I was not impressed at all with the sound.

    And I agree with what getaway said above...things seemed to be a little sloppy when I looked at one of these.
