    Repeat:
    Gents,
    Here's the deal. Play in 1,000 seat venue (church with balcony), amp is mic'd. 7-8 piece band with choral back-up. ES-335 Fat Neck Dot>Korg Pitchblack tuner>OCD>Box of Rock>Fulltone Deluxe Wah>Boss DD-7>Victoria 45410 Bassman.

    After many years, I couldn't be happier with my set-up. BUT, I have never owned a Marshall (or clone) and would like to add that (and a 2x12 cab to my Marshall Amp (or clone). I love that chunky, ballsy bluesy/rock rhythm and leads from the late '60's/early '70's as that's the era in which I grew up.

    Pick me a cab and speaker set up for the other post polling Marshall amps and their clones (JTM45, 50 Plexi, 18w Plexi).

    Playing in church can be difficult, especially keeping your stage volume down. If you're happy with your set up, I wouldn't rock the boat.

    But if you're going to do it, the Bogner OS212 is great.

    i agree with the above, but i like the avatar 2x12 cab--oval back with either eminence 12's for a fender type amp, or the hellatones for a marshall type amp. the eminence legend line has lower wattage speakers that could work with a marshall type amp as well :munch

    I like the Hellatone 30s a lot - I have em in an Avatar 4x12. I think V30s are going to be a bit aggressive for your venue. The smoother, less peaky mids and less boomy bass of the G12H30s is going to be friendlier to your audience, and IMHO, a more pleasing match for a Marshall type amp. I'd just go with 2 of those.

    I have an Avatar Traditional 2x12 w/the Hellatone 60Ls that I go hot and cold on. I think his oversized design (Vintage) is a better sounding cab, FWIW.

    Both the Avatar and Bogner are seriously good cabs. I dint think you'll be disappointed with either. Give a try. Go ahead. Go for it.

    I'm just interested in why you think the Vintage is better sounding. Is it just tuned better? Better low end? Dave, at Avatar, says they sound the same to him. You may hear something that in the difference to sway me to go to that vintage. It does look great and very mid-60's with that 2-tone gray/black.

    Gents,
    Thanks for your votes and comments. After looking at the options for my set up I'm also looking at a Southbay cab with an M75/H75 Scumback mix.

    I have good experiences with a G12H and either a greenback or a gold (depending on the amp), but how about:

    ASW KTS-70 plus Scumback M75-LHDC, which is like the G12H + Greenback combo above but better. That's what I have in my Two Rock 212 signature cab.

    The Scumback M75-LHDC is a killer G12-65 and the KTS-70 is the best G12H!
