    Been meaning to do this for a long time. People, me included, know they´re different but never really had the time to sit down and listen to them back to back more closely.

    Finally got around to recording a bit of both, they´re both classics for a reason IMO.

    The G12H30 is a standard 70th anniversary, the V30 is an older UK made one.

    Sounds like the V30 is more open and shimmery and bit more punchy. Nice clip, thanks!

    Yes, that's exactly how I'd describe it.

    It bugs me now that for for years, for some reason I thought the V30 was in some way an inferior speaker - now that I've spent time with a bunch of them they're my favourite for both live and tracking purposes. All these years, all the money, all the time spent reading about speakers.. Sigh..

    Agree that they mix really well.
    But for me the V30 FTW

    G12H30 + V30

    They do sound good together when used in a 2x12 combination.
