    Haha, see response to @bodia !

    I would love to let you have a blast of it through the Archon. Well just because.

    If the cab was a 4x, it would be the best one too!

    Me trying to lift a 4x would be like the weakest force imaginable meeting the immovable object. :(

    Cart it in, set it up, never move it again, just rock the crap out of it. I had my 50 watt Archon going through the Dr. Z Zbest and the Mesa 2x12 vert. It was HUGE sounding.

    I have no doubt! I produced some material at a studio that had a Marshall 412 from the late 60s, beat looking, but worked great. I ran my Two-Rock Onys Sig through it - unbelievable.

    But I do move gear around in my place. It’s sort of a masochistic sport. I do it for the sheer hell of it.

    Might I suggest installing some kind of ceiling mounted crane system?

    PS, I really love the Mesa 212 Vertical. I’ve never had one, but it’s a really great cab because...no bending down to adjust amp controls (saves contortions).
