    Hi all. I am thinking about ditching my combos for head/speaker deal. What cabinet/speaker would be the most versatile for most heads? I haven't nailed down what I would like to get for a head...maybe Orange, Budda, Bad Cat, Matchless, or Marshall. I know the Bad Cat stuff is best matched with itself...same as Matchless. I would probably end up going through a few to find what I like the best.

    I play pop/rock/hard rock/indie type of stuff.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    My favorite cab for Marshall tones is the Marshall 1965b (or a), 4x10. Light (40lbs), punchy with a big low end and smooth highs.

    I've seen a few sell here in the past for around $300 or so.

    IMHO By far the most versatile speaker cab rig is front ported Theile-type 1-12" in multiples. Loaded with EVM12L's and of course Beamblockers. ?? EV's ?? Yep--Hard Rock, Emo, Shoegazer, Jazz, Funk, Zack, Randy, Stevie..........

    Usually stack 2 vertically, or sometimes splay them V-style. Flexible, carry-able, almost unblowup-able. With 2 cabs you always have an emergency backup too.

    Lots of companys make great ones: Port City, Hermida, Pure 64, Mesa, Boogafunk,

    Oh Yeah-- If you're in the Midwest, keep your eyes open for Sonic small ported 1-12" cabs--Believe they're discontinued. Can be a steal. Got one with EVM12-S for $80
