Default NCGD = New Crappy Gear Day

OK I didn't need another head or cab but was looking at maybe a trade for a Marshall cab to pair up with my ATV50 head instead of or in addition to my Crate 4X12. Found this deal on CL, the guy was asking 150 for the MG100DFX head and two crusty cabs. One with no back and no grill. I talked him down to $90 and drove home with a car full of crappy gear for cheap. Actually the pictures are deceiving as the cab with the Crate logo and grill are not original to that cab, it's a Raven 4X12 with speakers that are heavily cracked on the cones but magically still produce sound. The other cab is a real Crate Blue Voodoo cab with pretty decent Eminence 50 watt speakers that sound very nice. I grabbed the grill off the Raven and put it on the BV120 cab to protect the speakers and will leave the cab without a back as it sounds really full and seems to really fill the area with sound despite the slight loss of bass from the back being off. When combined with my other Crate straight cab the mix is very nice. I sprayed Deoxit in all the jacks and pots and cleaned everything up a bit. The head works but if you move it around it can get a screaming whine but when I smack it in the face plate and/or move the knobs and work the jacks the noise goes away and the head works fine and sounds pretty decent for such a low end head. I'll prob sell the Raven cab and the head for cheap money as is and have a new 4X12 for free...

Yup. That is some ragged-lookin' gear alright...

That looks really cool, but are you able to crank the thing?

I have new amp sim software, and it does Marshall really well, imo.

I still say that Rudos is a not so distant relative of Bucky.

Wheelin' and a dealin' and getting a good deal on gear is better than a no gear day.
