    I am very happy with a Stone Age 2x12 loaded with an EV-12L and a Scholz Classic

    I just placed an order for a Quad of 16ohm creambacks. I should have them by the end of the month. If the amp gets here before then, I have the Hiwatt cab and a 1960B with 75's to try with it.

    Wish me luck.....

    Yeah, I found the EV/Medusa 150-C to be another nice blend of speakers that worked quite well with the Triptik. Although, once I started using the Creambacks, that was it!

    Good luck!.....LOL. I think you're going to love the sound of those in a 4x12 with the Triptik! That's going to be some serious 'bidness,' man!

    Not true for the Triptik / Trip-R family.

    My fave 4x12 has two old original Greenbacks and two V30's in a diagonal pattern.

    Lot of people are liking the Creamback including some of our Dealers, but I have yet to try it.

    You wanted to know how the Fanes sound with more aggressive tones.
    Found this demo too.

    The Studio 12L is essentially Fane's version of an EVM12L

    Ran my Tripr wide open with M75's....very nice......thinking slipping two Creambacks in there with the Scummies might be the icing....;)

    I really like the KTS 70 with the Triptik but just recently warmed up to the Creambacks. They give a little more raunch and dirt and sound lovely with this amp.

    I can see why some players like the Cream Backs, at least on retail price @$159.00 ea.
    Manufactured in U.K. or China???
    The back sticker does not say in the photos I'm seeing.
    Specs wise looks close to a Scumback 12M75 HP 65 watter.

    I really liked the clean sound. The tele had a nice spank, but also low end that I love.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't get into the dirty tones. I just don't like the way PRS guitars sound (or play). The Orange amp isn't at the top of my list either.

    I have a Hiwatt cab with original Fanes that I'm gonna try with the Triptik until the Creambacks arrive. Should be interesting.

    I have a hunch that you'll find the Hiwatt/Fane cab to be to your liking with the Triptik.

    After all this, I misunderstood that you only had a Hiwatt Cab and thought you meant
    it was unloaded. By all means Hiwatt Cab with original Fanes should be spectacular.

    FFTT, any experience with the 75 watt Fane AX12 ceramics?

    I have a 2001 Fane Axiom 12-75 in my '64 Reverberocket.

    Great speaker for tight low end and crisp detail with lower powered amps.
    Not as tight as the Medusa 150-C, closer to the Medusa 100.

    Old clip, camera mic only

    How would 4 of them in a 4X12 sound?

    Out of curiosity, which speaker did you have on the top/bottom, and why? Thanks for all the great info in your post, btw...

    To all, I've been thinking about trying a Blackhawk HP and Reaper HP in a vertical 2x12 cab. Which would you put on the top/bottom and why?

    Thanks!

    Creamback on the bottom, as I think it has a better bass-response. The "sparkle" of the KTS70 on top.

    I've never used the Blackhawk or Reaper, but I generally keep the bassier speaker on the bottom....

    No right or wrong here, just using my ears.

    Thank you sir. This is pretty much the way I set it up also, but it's always good to hear other views.
