The V30s (england) are my favorite speakers, but they need something that only the G12T-75 can give them... v=Boyy_M9aig Q Well it's a mather of taste at the end of the day. cheers You need to brake the speakers, push them hard hard hard if you want to make them sound good or you are never gonna get the best of them.They complement each other in an awesome way, you get the right bass mids and highs... The 75s need lots of time to brake them as well as the v30s.The V30s (england) are my favorite speakers, but they need something that only the G12T-75 can give them... v=Boyy_M9aig Q Well it's a mather of taste at the end of the day. cheers I've had that cab for 10 years man, it's been all over, cranked up hard in so many venues and thrown around in the back of a van, it certaintly doesn't need any more breaking in!
If anything though with G12-T75's that particular issue would be worse, have to say they just aren't for me. Is gonna give you all the metall from the 80's and 90's... Overdriven lead tones, though, were nice with the combo of the V30 and G12-T75. That said it's not completely open, I think the term is 3/4 open.
G12T-75 It's the iconic tone of the "Kill em all" and "Ride the lighting" from Metallica... v=fqfc R6ib Sc I I understand what you said about not being a fan because it's not great in the mix because is too scooped... they complement each other great, bass and highs and mids... Can't believe your using an Open back cabinet for those V30s... v=9h Ne Hl998v4 Cheers I've got a Marshall 1960A cab with the G12-T75's, I'l be honest I'm not a massive fan of the speakers, they have a sort of scooped sound to them with a fat low and lots of highs but not that much in the mid range, I find it a pretty hard cab to get a good sound from when recording and find it sometimes struggles to cut through the mix with the right balance in a live situation. If I was going to use a 4x12 again I'd probably get a Cornford cab with 4 V30's, just love the sound.
for me they sound best in a closed back cabinet, and for my taste, they sound best mixed with G12T-75s. When I took my Marshall to studio a few years back the guy had some old 1960s-1970s Sola Sound cab there, and it made the 1960A sound flabby and boxxy at high volumes, so we used the Sola Sound instead.
It’s simply a “generic” name that was given to the speakers of this period, similar to how “Plexi” is a name to all the pre-1969 Marshalls.
In other words, both the G12M and G12H can be called “Greenbacks”.
