    Gas money and time factor ... I see your point... Great deal, though ...

    I've got one looks exactly like that but worse and it's a 2x12. Doesn't make it any easier to fit into a car, though.

    Space factor and moving and storage ... Also must be considered ...

    They are not very popular, too big, too shallow for bass. Hard to get rid of actually. .... unless they are 2 x JBL equipped! Not a bad price... the older, smaller bassman cabs are more popular.

    Found it, it's in Manitoba.
    The head and cab was being sold together previously for like $750 CAD.
    I'm shocked it didn't sell together.

    I have a '68 head, also have three Altec 15" speakers collecting dust in the basement. I'll leave it for a younger guy with a better back. Looks real clean though.

    I think any drip-edge Bassman cabinet is gonna be 2x12.

    Sweet. Closed back Fender is the only way to go.

    You guys are making me realize that the used market is crawling with great finds. I should stop looking at new amps only.

    I have a Jan, 1967 BF 2x12 intermediate sized cab that was built for only 3-4 months that Has had no takers....great sound. I am sold on vertical orientation versus horizontal orientation of 2x cabs. I would gladly let it go for $250. There are two OEM Nov, 1966 Jensen C12N’s in it. This is not a sale offer...just a reality check. Big cabs do not sell well. I have had a 4 x 12 Ampeg V2 cab for 25 years that seemingly will go to the dump with the Fender...sans speakers....when I have to do the final ‘clean out’ day. LOL.....

    I don't understand the concept of those without casters, but you guys must be pretty strong to carry those alone, especially if stairs are involved.

    If I am carrying a heavy amp very far, I pick it up in both arms...getting the weight close to the body.

    I have notebooks full of unvetted kooky math theories which I need to have checked and then burn soon. Here's a couple:

    1) Ideal tube amp small gig rig: Amp weight / my age = .65

    Ma/Myo=.65

    (This allows Marshall to Vox to Boogie to DR to PR to Champ... who can complain??))

    2) Awesomeness typically occurs when Amp-rig Weight exceeds Guitarist Body-weight.

    Ma/Mbw=1.0+ =Xlnt
