New Ownhammer IR's: Scumback H75 4x12
As a PSA for you IR addicts out there, Ownhammer just release a new
IR set featuring the wonderful Scumback H75's in 4x12 format. Also,
newly added to this set are Earthworks TC30 mic captures, which I
personally was jonesing for (since I use stereo tube amp/guitar cab setup
with IR's 'ON' this enables me to get a virtual 'mic bypass').
I had a chance to A/B/C the new IR's against Red Wirez Basketweave
G12H30 set, and the G12H30 4x12 stock IR in the Axe. My quick and dirty
report is that the OH H75 IR's sound fantastic, their best yet. I like them even better than
their M75 IR's. The OH H75 beats the RW set. Its noticeably crisper,
tighter, and less congested sounding. Plus, the TC30 mic captures are perfect.
To my ears they capture the true character of H75's in the room
without perceptible mic coloration. The OH H75/TC30 position 1 IR is my
new go-to 'Marshall-style' cab.
Here is the OH news release with links to their new sound samples of the H75 4x12:
Now available at OwnHammer.com is the 412-GTR SLM H75 set of Speaker
This library combines the SLM 4x12 cabinet with the Scumback H75,
which for those who may not be familiar is, generally speaking,
Scumback's take on the Celestion G12H30.

This library contains the new TC30 captures and Mix-n-Match
revisions/additions, and just like the physical version pairs up very
well with the M75.
"The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second." - John Steinbeck
