    I just wanted to get opinions on speakers. Fred indicated to me that the Celestion Vintage 30 sounds the best and that is why he sells them with that speaker. After I got my amp I noticed it was a Chinese made V-30. I just do not dig the sound of this speaker and never have. I had a Scumback H75/65 watter from another cab and threw it in and the difference is night and day. The Scumback has sparkly highs even mids and tames the low end slightly...much more musical. I am trying to get opinions from people who have tried other types of speakers with this amp. I am interested in hearing about how the Alnicos sound (any brand).

    i use mine with a celestion gold, and it sounds fantastic. HUGE sounding with sparkly, chimey highs, very warm midrange, and a tight bottom.

    I've got a Scumback H75 in mine. Didn't really like the V30 in it either. Just too "in-your-face" for me. The Scumback is MUCH sweeter sounding to my ears. It stills does clean and mean, but in a much more toneful way.

    Mine sounds great with the V30 and Blue combo...I've got a 4x12 of Scumbacks 55 and 75Hz I think M magnets in an X pattern that I haven't paired it with ..yet!

    If I had one complaint about the amp it would be a lack of mids. I have heard that the Alnico's will tame the lows a bit and sweeten up the mids. I know Scumback is now making the repro Silver Alnico and a lot of people dig them but I would really love to pit that against a Celestion Gold.

    Anyone else have a lack of mids issue on their EDT?

    My band just finished a demo and I'm going to post a thread on what is what guitar wise, but you can go ahead and check out our myspace: www.myspace.com/nightsweatmusic I play the EDT in both 13 and 29 watt mode, mid boost pulled vol, bass, and treble around noon, sometimes Vol is around 1:30. The Celestion Blue was mic for everything except the first solo on "Gabilan Way" is the V30 and 29w mode. My guitar is in the Right speaker.
