I’m excited about today’s Free Shirt Wednesday submission. Today we’re talking about Avatar Speakers! First off, I have to say I’m a HUGE fan of Avatar speakers, and I own two cabs now. I also personally know a few other musicians that are sporting Avatar cabs.. and love them.
Avatar Speakers is located in Dalton Gardens, ID and they build quality cabs using quality speakers. They do NOT do custom cabs, but you can pick from their various styles and load them up with your speakers of choice (Celestion: Vintage 30s, G12H30s, G12T75s, Greenbacks, Classic Lead 80s, Hellatone 30s, Hellatone 60s and G12K100s). You pick the tolex, grill cloth, open or close back and the correct Ohm and you’re good to go.
The best thing.. is their pricing. They have fantastic prices on cabs, and often have deals. I’ve seen their G212 Custom cab go for $299 with a pair of Vintage 30s in there.. but you have to keep an eye on their site to catch these deals. They also offer “Scratch-n-dent” items as well.
Along with purchasing a fully built cab, you can just buy the speakers (which are priced nicely) or just buy the cabinet. They’re great to deal with, and they build and ship quick.
Here is a shot of my new rig. This is a Rivera Knucklehead 100 on top of 2 G212 Custom cabs (top cabinet is open back – Vintage 30 and G12H30 / bottom cabinet is closed back with dual Vintage 30s).
