WOW! This speaker is just awesome. I have been looking for a replacement for the Vintage 30's that came in my Avatar vintage 2X12 cab and, after much research and debate, I decided on a G12H(55) paired with a G12H(75) to play my Orange TH30 head through. This is what I have been trying to get this amp to sound like since I bought it almost two years ago!
After trying MANY different maneuvers to get this amp to sound the way I knew it should, I finally decided that a speaker swap was the best thing to do. I only wish I had made the switch sooner! I had even gone so far as to stop playing through this amp for gigs and band practices because I just wasn't satisfied with the over-all sound and feel. Now I am seriously thinking about moving it back into the number one slot and keeping my 1987x at home and in reserve for only larger-venue gigs.
These speakers really bring out the great lower mid-range growl, sustain, feel and dynamics that my amp has to offer with a nice tight low end and well-defined top end. Chords have great definition when played with and without overdrive. The V30's always seemed too bright and shrill / brittle with an overly flabby lower register and dull mids when paired with the Orange. But now I couldn't be happier. These things just sing, straight out of the box and plugged straight into the amp. Paired with an SL Drive, Ge fuzz, Hot Cake and / or Empress EQ and these things kick some serious classic '70's rock tones. I can't wait to hear what they sound like after they have some hours on them. Top marks!!!
