Just loaded a 4x12 with those and compared it to my other 4x12s.
All I can say...dayum I can't believe how cool the new 20 watt greenies sound. My new fave!

I was just listening to some clips on your site
awesome playing

I really dig the tone and vibe and feel I get from "unnacompanied thang"

I was going to email you about your speakers on that...

now I see this..

what about in a 2x12 instead of a 4x12 where 25w gbacks would be a bit overwhelmed... ???

thanks in advance

Actually for close miking I always use a V30 in a iso cab.
My 2x12...
1 with V30s, one with Classic 80s, one with H30s. And I have to make me one with Greenies. Not worried about frying the speaker, just put a new one in.

Dig them?!?! I love them! They sound better than my 30 year old Greenies right out of the box.

I haven't heard about these yet, details?
They're the UK build 20 watt 75 Hz cone Ms to go with the 30 watt 55Hz H magnet ones.
I like the Hs, but didn't think I would necessarily prefer them over the usual re-issue H30s. But those Greenies just totally rocked.

Ed, this may be the first time we have ever agreed on speakers.

I have been singing the praises of the Heritage G12M's for a while now. Put em in my 2X12 and in my Top Hot 1X12 combo.
I have a Heritage G12H and it is a bit harsh, takes a while to break in from what I hear so I will keep it for a while. The 12M's are awesome right from the word go!

Doug, you should really check them out, thay don't work with all amps but when they do work, look out!!
I know Avatar has them for a reasonable price now.

Gat,
Definetly give a review on this set up.

I thought of doing this in my 2-12 ÷13, hoping to possibly bring down the overall loudness of the amp. Let me know if that seems to happen at all. My thought is the M would begin to breakup earlier while the H keeps that big bottom end together.

i have a pair of the heritage G12H 30's in my orange 2x12 and i'm really diggin them. they did take a little longer to break in but they're fine now. i actually don't have a desire to search for old pre rola's anymore. i really want a 4x12 cab with two of the G12H 30's and 2 of the scumbag H30's in the 75hz model. i think the pair of the 55hz and the 75hz would sound good.

I will need one for my iso cab, looks like the constant V30 in my clips is gonna come to an end. :)

Has anone compared these greenies to the Guytron Bigtone 55's? I hear such great things about those from everyone who has tried them.
