Still on the hunt for a killer 112 cab for my DSL20hr head.
I'm using a Seismic with a Texas Heat in it, but I want to move that back to pair with my Bugera V22 head for cleans. I want to get a killer slightly oversized 112 for the Marshall. The Avatar Traditional 112 seems a good way to go. I can get a Creamback in it, and get the convertible back so I can make it open or closed, all for under $500 shipped.

Any thoughts on this Avatar Traditional 112, or alternate suggestions? Budget is flexible but I wanna keep it under $700 total if I can. I want to get something I am going to be psyched to have.

I prefer the sourmash. you can get it in convertible back and in any combination of tolex, grill cloth an piping at no extra charge.

I have a tweed avatar cab too, quality as well. I think avatar does fender better than Marshall. F3810F38-C058-4864-94F8-81F48BA35789.jpeg

Thanks everyone. I'm checking out some of those other options. The Avatar still seems like a good call though!

The Marshall MX112 or MX212 would match the DSL.
Needs a speaker upgrade though...

I like mine a lot. I don't have many pictures but found this one from a gig. It's got a 25w Greenback. Built quite solidly and has a stock Avatar daisy chain style jack on the rear.

I'm wary of those because of the MDF. Should I not be?
I have 2 MX112's.
Every (Marshall) cab I own, that I haven't made myself is MDF.
Cork sniffers with vintage plexi amps and stacks of 4x12 cabs prefer Baltic birch, but for a 20w amp going to a 1x12, I don't think there's much of a problem.
A good speaker is going to affect the tone way more than the cab material.
Just don't take them swimming.

I have an Avatar 4x12. It's the one in my profile pic. It's a great cab. Built solid and sounds great!
