Okay, first, a confession... I really dig my QR but the absolute beast-like volume made me reconsider keeping it. It's been at one of the local shops for a few months but no takers. Tons of interest...but no one's bought it yet. Also, I hadn't quite bonded with the tone and since i've used a Vox AC30 for years, i'm used to an entirely different sound and feel. Still, I love that hotrodded Marshall tone so the QR is a pretty decent amp for that. So I go to pick it up b/c I think i might want to try it again at a few upcoming gigs. I'm running it through a Splawn 2x12 (not the oversized) w/ Scumbacks. Here's the issue... It's always sounded a little "woofy" to me but I don't have access to many other cabs/speakers so I stuck with the Scumbacks. Just for fun at the store, I plugged it into a Mesa cab that they had w/ Vintage 30's. Whoa! Big difference! It was a LOT clearer and sounded a lot better. I mean, a LOT better! I almost ended up buying the cab. (I did think better of it when I thought of hauling a 110 lb 4x12 into bars... ) I ran a few searches here on TGP and it seems that most QR owners are in agreement that this amp doesn't sound that good with V30's. Also on the same searches, I once again found nothing but praise for the Scumbacks. Man...I am confused. My QR didn't sound half bad through a Recto cab w/ V30's - and yet, again, sounds really midheavy and woofy with my Splawn w/ Scumbacks. Is there something not quite right...? Are the V30's mid hump evened out somehow by the huge bass that's inherent in the Mesa cabs? Anyway, it's got me SERIOUSLY thinking of keeping the QR and swapping out some speakers. Can anybody give me some suggestions on what would make a 2x12 sound good? We play rock but I do have to use the cleans a fair amount too. And as much of a metal head as I was in my early days, sadly, there's not much of that in our set. Probably the heaviest we would get is Green Day/Billy Idol-type tones. Again, i don't know that much about speakers so I'm thinking I've seen the G12h30 (or 65's) mentioned a fair amount. I'm just looking for a decent amount of bass/mids/treble and since the amp has plenty of gain, maybe i should stay from any kind of "low break up" kind of sound. As always, thanks, fellas!
