    And I don’t even mind the look, though it’s the only negative I saw in reviews of this thing.
    Celestion V-30 alone will cost you $149 new. This thing was $189 on Amazon. Very solid, impressive cab. And the V-30 is outstanding, really. Together, this is a friggin steal. Anyhoo:

    That does seem like a pretty darn good deal. What's it made of? Also, dimensions? Good find!

    That IS a cheap price but what about shipping?
    Free or additional?

    Avatar gets $329 for a US made 1x12 with same speaker.
    Plus shipping.

    Free prime shipping on Amazon.
    Looks like free US shipping from monoprice too, per my link.

    I got the thing yesterday. I’ve read countless times that the V-30 needs a good break in. So I played for an hour with my VHT Special 6 head dimed with a tube screamer in front of it (and earplugs firmly in place). It was incredible. I’ve got several other heads I can try through it, too.

    Right on man! I'm sure it's a good sounding cab. One of the reviews said it was all cabinet plywood const. and glued and screwed! Looks like they also sell an interesting 30w EL34 tube head as well for 200 bucks? Do you have any experience with that head by chance?

    Another option, Eminence. I had no idea that the made cabinets, and at a fantastic price. I got the XTC212-B for under $250 shipped. It feels solid, and looks great.
