Hey guys, I'm back (not that anyone remembers me hahaha) so I followed advice and spent more time playing guitar than talking about it BUT I need advice from the best, once again.
So I decided (for some stupid reason) to downsize my gear because HEY I rarely play on full stacks live and jamming with it was overkill and I try to keep my gear to an effective minimum. So I sold my VHT FB 4x12 and kept my Nomades 4x12 because I love it.
Since I will be playing only on one cab, I want to have a multi-speaker cab so I'm thinking of putting 2 Eminence Legend 120 (originally in a Vader cab) and 2 G12H100 (the model pre- k100) in an x-pattern to have a nice richer tone from only one cab.
I have experience with G12k100 and G12t100 but not with the G12H100, few people do.
I used to like the G12T100 (aka hot-100) in my Marshall 1960a 4x12, it's like a t75 but with more of everything and hold up better under high stress. So very compressed and "hot"
G12K100 was totally different, less compressed and more aggressive but still a lot of bass but with better response but not as warm as the t100, tighter feel but darker.
G12H100 - a guy is selling them to me here for a good price - are apparently close to the K100 but people keep saying they have a richer bass? Some people say they are not as bassy? Some people say they are as tight in the lows and some other people say the opposite. Some people say the K100 is more directional and the H100 has better spread. Some say the H100 is hallway between a k100 and a V30.
Help? My gear is listed on the left here and FYI I scoop my mids in the 250-500hz and I peak them at 1000hz, I use a lot of low end and a rolled off Top end, while keeping some "richness" in the treble. I need to make this cab FLUB-PROOF and very bassy and rich sounding. Thump and Chunk.
V30 is out of the question, they can't handle my tone and break-up to much at high volumes, G12h30 and Greenbacks are nice but a little bit to scooped for my sound and not bassy enough. Eminence Swamp Thang seems to miss some low mid chunk, and Tonkers lack a little bit of bass.
I say pick one speaker and run with it, unless when you do play live you only plan on mic'ing one speaker anyway (you would hear both, but anyone in front of the PA will hear only one).
If you have two cabs, just sell the one you like less IMO
