So, I have decided to go back to using a power amp/cabinet combo over FRFR. So I began my hunt for a decent 4x12 cabinet. I needed a 4x12, because I play live a fair amount, and my band's practice space is an audio sink. We have to play fairly loud, haha. I had heard a decent amount about these cabinets, and seen some pretty good YouTube demos. I know Dustie Waring, Paul Waggoner, Tosin Abasi, etc, use these. I live to play metal, and these guys get some sick tones playing through them, so why not. I understand the cabs are built with some angled panels that project more sound outward from the front of the cab. I saw an A/B test between a Mesa 4x12 OS with V30's vs, a Port City 2x12 OS, and the 2x12 blew away the Mesa. So... yeah, seems interesting. BUT, the price was kind of an issue for me. After speaking to Daniel at Port City, he was adamant on the price listed on their site, because he did not want to undercut his own dealers. This shows character, and was a great sign off the bat. So I called around to the dealers they have listed on their site, as there were none in my area. I called around until I got to LoGo Music, in Houston, TX. I spoke to a couple nice guys, Jay and Alfredo, who were really eager to make a deal, and get me this cabinet at a great price. I spoke with Alfredo about what I needed, and he said he would contact me within the hour on a price. Not only did he contact me right away, but he quoted me a price that was by FAR the best out of all the dealers I contacted. Not only the lowest, but he got me a tolex/grill option just to sweeten the deal. They were more than willing to work with me to get a deal within reason on this cabinet, and I can't be happier. They can have the cabinet drop-shipped from Daniel at Port City as soon as the cab is constructed, so you don't need to pay for extra shipping or make a road trip.
