    I really hate to admit it...

    ...but I really need an Orange cab in my life. I'm using one for the second leg of this tour, and my Framus has never sounded this fucking beastly before. That combined with the Dead Horse I've been using have taken my live tone to a completely new level. Time to start saving up!

    And time to be labeled as one of those trend-following douches for wanting one.

    Man, that's the LAST cab I'd think to pair with a Framus.
    Mainly because they suck gargantuan nads with 99% of amps. Just like their amps with any other cab.

    hmmm. orange you say... Was it a UK made one? I heard somewhere non UK models get Chinese celestions while the UK ones get all UK made components.

    Id love to give one a try with mine. I was considering an orange before getting my Zilla.

    Also, get a black one, not one of the douchy orange ones

    hows the tour going anyway man?

    I still think Mesa cabs shit on everything. But I'm sure orange cabs have better applications.
    ^ probably sarcasm.

    IMO every cab is different. I have a decent Mesa now, and owned a rather lousy one a while back. I've heard great Marshalls and terrible Oranges. The best sounding cab that I ever owned was an old Peavey 4x12 with Scorpions in it, the thing was just glorious.

    Orange have their own sound and it can be pretty nifty.

    Peavey makes good cabs, even their cheaper models sound good with good speakers.

    Best cab I've ever heard was my guitar teachers old Mesa Verticle 2x12. That thing was just sweet, the one I bought and then sold wasn't near as magical.
