    Sounds good. Good to see some non V-30 stuff getting love.

    K100>GT-175>V30

    Granted, the K100 Celestion makes was originally known as the GT-185 and they rebranded it when they found out it was significantly more powerful than they had originally rated it. So they are all similar.

    I've done the V30 thing. 2 different recto cabs, a Mesa Stilleto 212 (best cab Mesa makes BTW), and an Avatar. So both Mesa "special tweaked V30s" and regular ones. Not to mention countless V30 impulses. Can't stand them. They just aren't me. Yeah, they really stand out, unfortunately, the frequencies at which they really stand out are not that good sounding.

    The whole "every great tone ever was recorded with a V30" thing is not even close to right. I have no idea why it gets so much traction. Are V30s used by a huge amount of modern metal types? For sure. Is saying, "Just go with a V30, that's what people have been doing forever, it's a time tested rule" is BS though. There are plenty of classic metal tones that are GT-175s. There are also a lot of cool ones that are Greenbacks. And Zakk Wylde obviously uses EVM-12Ls, which are great speakers.

    Almost all of the Morrisound records are Greenbacks.

    IR's are the fucking devil. Before I even had my AxeFX I had about 13,000 IR's on my laptop, now I have about 15,000. I don't know how the fuck I accumulated so many, but there are times I get like 90% there with a tone I'm working on and IR's become like porn...."I'm just going to check out a few more in case I miss THE one I'm looking for."

    That said, I LOVE the ML Oversized Mesa cab pack I bought a few weeks ago. Tons of usable IR's and I really don't need to spend much time looking for 'the one' as so many are just killer.

    You probably know this, but make sure you give your "ear palette" a chance to reset between IRs. Sometimes I scroll through a zillion of them and hate them all, only to come back later (or a minute later) with fresh ears and realize that they sounded great, my ear was just fagitued from IR-Itis.
