    I am using an Old Dog custom cab with Celestion V30's. Don't know if it due to the cab itself (top notch), but mine is sounding killer.

    Remember with this amp small tweaks of the mids makes all the difference!

    Yo Rod ... I'm betting it would sound great with a couple of GH-65's ..

    The combo has CL80's .. but the amp has enough high end to make for a great balance with the GH-65's smooth mids ... should make the OD channels sound like butter...

    Thankx Joseph....I just tried a speaker combination of a Scumback H75 with an alnico Tone tubby in an open back earcandy cab....Great tones...a bit more vintage sounding....I don't use any modern voicings or contour control with the amp anyways....really cool combination of tones..a bit more complex sounding...more "boutique voiced"...if you will....the alnico speaker gives the amp a little more of a voxy /top hat tone...very cool/...

    Interesting ...

    I use the first channel with the modern setting to get the most headroom and it sounds much like a Twin..
    And the second channel as vintage to break up a little earlier much like a Deluxe does ...

    In truth, I'm relunctant to take out these CL80's because every week they break in a little more ..
    no where near as stiff as they were when I first got the combo ...

    Those V30's(Chinese Celestion?) sound great in the stack as the C80's are reported to sing in the combo's. I'm certain those two speakers would X up just fine together too!

    What do you all think about the Celestion Elite 80 speakers in the Tourmaster?

    I have the cab & trying to decide if I am going to change them out.. any suggestions?

    Anyone tried the Jensen Neo's or Blackbirds?
