    Anyone got experience with Matamp cabs? I'm thinking of getting the straight 2x12. I've tried Orange cabs and like them and afaik they're made by Matamp (correct me if I'm wrong).

    Orange amps were made by Matamp back in the early/mid 70s but they split and that hasn't been the case since. Two separate companies now.

    I have a 4x12 of theirs, weighs a ton, sounds great. Just like an Orange cab.

    Matamp also made cabs for Orange in the 90s when Gibson owned them. They've always been almost identical designs though... Without the name badge (and color scheme) you couldn't tell the two apart.

    They're fantastic cabs. Solid marine grade birch with extra tough tolex, or vinyde or whatever they call it. I played a 4x12 for about seven years, beat the crap out of it, and never had any issues. I only sold it because I sold the Matamp head I was using and wanted to keep them as a pair.
