    What speakers do you have in that cab? I've tried mine with a V30 loaded closed back 2x12 and a G12M Creamback loaded open back 1x12. It sounds great with both cabs.

    Scumback 75s and 65s in a X pattern.

    I may change it out to 4 greenbacks. Always seems to be my favorite sound. Think would work really well with this amp.

    Sorry to divert, but whats the name of that finish on that LP? It is awesome. And the amp does sound great.

    It's either Iced Tea, or Teaburst. Can't recall exactly. But definitely "Tea" in the name :)

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I’ll do a better one with proper micing etc. over the weekend. This one was kind of sloppy and hurried. Just me random noodling off of the top of my head.

    Would like to hear how the the BE-50 sounds with mesa 2x12 V30 closed back, especially with the clean channel. a review of that mix (amp and cab) maybe will help me to decide if to sell the mesa cab and move to open cab, or not. the closed back 2x12 cab of mesa is my favorite of all time as a closed back cab.

    I've bought three guitars and a bass from them...That 55 point checkup is a joke....I call my sales person about vey obvious points and he tells me inspectors can't catch everything.
