View Full Version : Question for you Scumback Afficionados
06-13-2010, 04:59 PM
I have a Mills 4x12 (closed back) loaded with a M75/H75 mix. The amps I play through it are a Wizard MC, SLO, Einstein and Naylor SD60.
I was wondering what differences in tone I should expect if I replaced the H75s with either two more M75s or two Scumicos.

More mids with the M75's, and a bit more mids/upper mids with the Scumnicos.

I know everyone has different tastes, but what would your personal choice be with the amps I mentioned?
Aside from mids and upper mids, what would be the difference, if any, with smoothness and the low end?

Only played a Wizard once, haven't tried the other three, sorry.
With the Wizard, I'd just go with the M75's. I think the Scumnicos would have a tiny bit more bass, but also more treble than the M75's, and that amp seemed to like the M75's better (alone) when I tried it out a few months back at Tone Merchants.
Sorry, not going to try and sell you on a Scumnico for that amp/setup as I liked the M75's better.

For me I lost some highs and some lows when I pulled the H series out and put in two more M series. With a couple amps this worked out great. The mids do come on stronger and it's really nice in the band mix for me. With the wizards I've had, you get more of the classic sound that you hear from major bands that use the wizard. oh, It gets woodier sounding, too. I am sure the slo and the other amps will follow suite. I have a custom clone Slo 60 watt which sounds great with the M series.
I really like it with all M series. I also came from the M/H mix in my cabs. I separated the speakers into a H cab and a M cab. Can run both to get that M/H sound back.

Thanks! The more I read the more I think I'll prefer the four M series. Woody, strong mids and classic sounding are all right up my alley.
