    agreed. In band rehearsal a straight might-as-well not be there at all. It's playing to your knees. Slants all the way.

    The only thing a straight cab is good for is if you hate your drummer, aim it directly at him

    I sold my straight as I had no use for it and needed money; fast forward almost a year and I sure could use it

    You can always put the straight cab a bit higher, on a box or an empty small rack or something to be heard better...

    That said - i'd keep the slant, and if my cab would be available as a slant, i would have gotten the slant version instead.
