    They sound great. I've used these on my upcoming album and you can hear some previews on my youtube channel (see my sig).
    I went for 4x12 cabs. I generally go for the G12-65 model but also used the G12T-75, V30 and Creamback. When doubling guitars, If I used the same cab/speaker, I would at a minimum use different mic options.

    Great stuff and affordable.
    This. Great sound, good variety without option paralysis.

    Here are a couple I've made, I don't use anything else. Not because I think these are the best, but because they were made using my own rig, so just makes sense.

    I actually went and bought this late last night, but didn't really have a chance to play with them that much, but did like what I heard. As I'm having to load a limited number onto the torpedo (limited hardware slots), which ones out of the A1 picks are your faves?

    Where do I get this? Did a google, ended up with loads of "download a random zip file from a random location" thread, which is the equivalenet of "please infect my PC with viruses"

    If you do go on my youtube channel to listen to the tones, the guitars on those all went through a plain 'ol JCM800 2204 from 1983, no mods, no pedals on the rhythm tones. Almost no post EQ, just a bit of delay added. I may have used a 1987 Jubilee on some tracks but not on the rhythm. I'd have to check my notes.

    BTW, I have real cabs loaded with G12-65, G12T-75, G12-Century, G12H-Anniversary, G12M-25 UK Greenback, G12M Blackbacks from the 70's, G12H-Creamback so I have quite a few real cabs to compare with.

Honestly, and not because I'm a cheapskate, 10 years of trying to get decent modeled guitar tones and I haven't found anything that sounds better than the free Redwirez cab (Marshall 1960A w/ G12M-25) and the Ownhammer freebie (Mesa w/ V-30s). I haven't found a sound that can't be covered with one or the other or both, between all the mic and placement options. I still use the SM-57 in varying positions for 99% of things.
    Well, bought some ownhammer ones last night, so I'll go hunting for this redwirez one as well

    Judging how the clips you've posted here sound, if I can't make my tones sound good with these the problem is between the chair and the keyboard.

    I tried these out yesterday - they're great!

    For pretty much the first time ever I got a recorded sound that I'm actually pretty satisfied with. Thanks for posting them!
