This was my first cab, I got it to match the hand wired head from the same series, and originally I was a little sceptical about spending nearly EUR1000 on speakers! I mean come on, how much can a few speakers really change the overall sound?? especially if your already running a top end guitar through a top end hand wired head? wouldn't a much cheaper cab do the same job?? NO!!!!! These are amazing, I am so glad I got these alnico blue speakers, they were a little harsh at first but after a few hours of LOUD playing they loosened up and really started to shine, played clean they can be warm and chimey and full of bluesy character but hit them with a hot signal and oh my do they sing!! Think Angus Young with humbuckers or Tom Petty with single coils. They crackle and break up and add so much depth to distorted tone, I am convinced that if I changed my speakers I wouldn't recognize the rest of my gear played through anything else, a MUST buy for a Vox or any other El84 type distortion!
