Thank you sir. This is pretty much the way I set it up also, but it's always good to hear other views.
A pair of Creambacks is also a nice match for the Trip, but IMHO (H for humble) the cleans are richer and "deeper" with the KTS70. And, using double-CB's there is something in the upper frequencies (using the clean channel) that translates funny with my rig. Like the single notes start to breakup sooner and lose sustain, but only in the upper registers.

The overdrive channels sound fantastic with double-creams, but to get the best of both the clean channel and the overdrive channels, I felt the KTS70/CB suited me best.

Do any of you Trip users ever DIME (or close) the treble on the overdrive channels? I find that the treble knob "seems" to add that "Marshall Crunch" thing pretty well (with humbuckers). Dial it back for the smoother tones.

It's funny you mention that salty. I just started turning up the treble on the OD channel to about 1:30-2:00. Totally got me the tone I've been missing. I think I turned the treble down when I was trying different speakers that it seemed spikey with, but never turned it back up when I found the right speaker combination. Wow!

Reviving an old thread. Which Creambacks did you guys try/like( ie. 65 vs. 75)?
It's really about preference. I like the 65s myself, but you may just have to try both. I'm quite sure that both will work quite well with a Triptik.

I've got a 2x12 cab with a pair of G12T-75s, and whilst I like it, I think it sounds quite 'dark'.

Not sure if this is because the speakers are still fairly new and need to be broken in more, or whether it is a natural characteristic of this speaker.

Would switching to G12-H75s or G12-M65s brighten up the tone a little?

I've also tried a Creamback M, and a V30 in a vertical 2x12 and thought it sounded good.

Lynchbacks work really well with Alan's amps. His favorites are the Scholz Classics- if you can find them.
