Awesome, Musical and light
I've been using a Mesa 2x12 cab with 30 watt Black Shadow (Celestion) speakers for my guitar rig - a Triaxis preamp/SimulClass 2-90 power amp - for years. It weighs a ton and has a high-mid boost that is harsh - I worked around it. I contacted Mesa Boogie to find out more about the cabs they offer (Mesa has a lot of choices) and to find out how the higher wattage Transatlantic cabs (90 watts) would compare? Well, they are the most musical-sounding speakers I've ever used and they can handle anything the power amp can give them (90 watts per side - usually running half power). These were designed with care and constructed of Baltic birch, I believe. Whatever - they're incredibly light and now I can split the cabs to get a bigger sound. Awesome.
