    Hello everyone. There are a couple original MAS46s available to me for an attractive chunk of change affraid . Most guys like the latest/greatest of, well, most things Blues Blothers . Me 3. But gotta think that these 1st generation cabs are still very formidable compared to the market. Would love to hear about them from anyone who's played and/or heard them.


    BTW, when did the 1st generation 46s come to be? Can't have been too long ago. 2 years? 3 tops? How old's MAS anyway?

    Lay the 411 on me Vortex .

    One more thing----there is a HUGE difference between the 1st generation 46's and subsequent ones. A bit too scooped in the mids, IMO. The Faital 3's make a big difference. Also, a lot of improvements in cabinet tuning. A lot. The first gen cabs do all of the Big E stuff but most of the work since then has been in getting the frequency response and voicing right.

    As much as I like (and am proud of ) the first gen cabs, there is really no comparison. Got to get those mids right!
