The Mesa® RoadReady™ 8X10 cab was an ingenious design of a multi ported cab with a heavy metal grille & heavy bracing, built into a road case on wheels..This cab has a very different voicing than many other manufacturers’ 8X10 bass cabs, it’s more round like a 1X15 with just enough mids and treble to be heard in a mix, but not as mid forward as other more popular backline 8X10 cabs.
I first became aware of this cab’s awesome power seeing a Tool concert long ago. Tracking one of these cabs down to capture for you has been a labor of love.
