I dislike the Standard Cab, no projection.


Get the 'pro' cab, with V30's

Given that this projects way better than the Mesa cab I had with V30s, I'm going to have to call false on that one. Set your mids insanely low and have too much gain and maybe that is the case, given that the classic mid-hump of the V30s takes care of that. I dislike V30s because of that mid hump

However, I aint scared of mids, I crank them, and dont have loads of gain, therefore this cab fits what I need already.

my mids are cranked and the gain is looow...

sure in the practice the v60 sounds great but get up live, you'll get drowned out by everything but the crowd.

I have a mate who uses the almost exact same rig as me, only difference is he uses an Invader 100. His tone absolutely kills and can be heard everywhere in the room.

I'm not doubting your experience per se, just that if this projects better than a cab I already had, and played live with, and had to turn it down below the rest of the bands levels so they could be heard, I fail to see how this isn't going to project.

We are definitely going for different sounds then, because I hate Marshalls with a passion , even their cabs I find lacking for the tone I want.

Different strokes though, their cabs dont work for you, whereas they decimate for what I go for :)

I love it. It has a lot less gain than I was expecting, but it still has more than enough for any application. I was expecting it to be like my 5150 where anything past 6 is an unusable amount of gain haha... It's a different sort of saturation though, it sounds very clean no matter how much gain you add, you never get that sort of sizzle that you get with most amps. Sort of sounds like how I'd expect a VHT to sound. Next time I'm home I'm going to make some clips of all 3 amps with the same guitar/cab/mic setup for you guys to check out.

Sure I'll jam out a few of the riffs I've got kicking around... That project is still coming together :\ I just need to keep practicing writing songs until I get something where I'm satisfied with the flow... You should give me songwriting lessons Marlon, haha...

I'll update with pictures when I get back in town, but right now, my live rig consists of:

-SUNN Model T Head
-SUNN Model T 4x12 cab
*runs in tandem with*
-6505 2x12 Combo
-brand new, yet-to-be-gigged Avatar 2x12 cab

-2004 Gibson Les Paul Standard, Desert Burst
-Jackson DKMG w/ PAF Pro/ToneZone combo (the "afterburner" booster on this guitar is SO badass with those pickups...)
-2004 Ibanez S series. Plain as it gets, walnut finish. Dual EMG 81's.
(all tuned to a dropped A#, with 13-56 D'Addario strings)

-BOSS TU-2 tuner
-BOSS PS-5 pitch shifter (original signal to SUNN, harmonies go to the Peavey. of course, the signal goes to both amps when the pedal is not engaged. sounds pretty fucking massive!)
-BOSS PS-2 shifter/delay (just a little bit of delay in my SUNN's loop. stays on the whole time. very subtle.)
-Ibanez Tubescreamer (gives the SUNN a little boost here and there)

Those pedals run in front of my amp (sans the PS-2), in the order I listed them.

I have a lot of other miscellaneous gear that I don't currently use live, so I won't include any of it in my "rig".

I had a '98 GWB-1 a year ago or so.
After I sold it, I knew I had to get one of these sooner or later.
Well I made the move today:




I kinda regret selling the GWB-1, seeing as they've rose in price lately and are harder to come by each day.
But for my level, I felt it was the right move. My intonation is much better now, I can actually play without my ears getting raped.

Here's a pic I snapped at practice yesterday, both cabs, the 5150, the Blackmore and the Recto are mine, the Line 6 used to be mine but I sold it to the other guitarist and that's obviously the drummers Yamaha Stage Custom set...



Here's a pic of our little "studio" setup too haha, I should've snapped a pic of the microphone shelf but whatever...
