To the above poster, just a few hours makes a big difference.
To the OP, you should her some hum, but don't push them too hard. Just look for the cone to be pulsing in and out, that 's the main thing. It will loosen up the cone, surround and spider.
I would agree that only in more recent years Malcolm has received his due credit especially from guitar players. I love their live shows and have been seeing them over the years since 1985. They define rawk.
However, it is both of them together IMHO that defines the sound.
This is what I have:

I am in the middle of planning an amp build - 5E3x2 ( Tweed Double Deluxe) . I will build a head and have a 2 x 12 pine cab with a convertible back built for it. I am stuck on speakers though.

Please do not judge the tone before breaking them in. It takes a lot of hours at stage volume for this to happen....or
You can speed up the process with an iPod.

I Have a '67. I think 3 on the dial is a little early.
Is your phase inverter tube (V4) a 12AT7? Often times people will put a 12AX7 in there to boost gain a little. Tried that, didn't like the tone myself.
I am currently in a local Rockabilly band and have played out several dates over the last year in different venues.

I love this amp but....it cuts in and out during first 10-15 minutes of playing at stage volume on the clean channel, until it really warms up. At home at low volumes it's fine.
I have sprayed cleaner into the pots, retouched the solder joints at the tube sockets, made sure the bolts on the...
Yes it could. Moving from plywood or MDF, whatever it is now to dovetailed pine boards will caus the cab to ring differently most likely emphasizing certain mid freqs.
Whether or not you like the effect will be your decision. Fender was using pine cabs up until mid to late 60's I think.
What about 2 Greenbacks in a vented cab like Port City? I assume you might loose low end "tightness" but would the thump be there?
I'm interested in this question too, since I drive a Mustang and gigging with a 4x12 is not feasible.
