    I have a Port City 2x12 cab that I have been using with 2 Celestion blues. I have been thinking of dropping in a Greenback in place of one of the blues.

    I play mostly rock/blues and was wondering if anyone has any experience with these speakers.

    The amp driving them would be a either a Cornford hellcat 15 or a Stephenson 30 watt head.

    Thanks

    Mix a blue with a gold. Its just a killer combo.

    i played a 2x12 Germino cab with a Blues and either a Greenback or V30 and it was a KILLER combo. as far as mixing with a Gold, seems odd, isnt the Gold supposed to be just a higher wattage Blues? personally i use both Golds in my 2x12 but the blues/g12m or v30 mix should be pretty happening

    I have a red fang mixed with a greenback -- sounds ok to me.

    Ive played blues for years, and have had a golds for about a year. To me they sound nothing alike. The gold has way more bottom end and the treble while sweet is not as pronounced. its fatter and richer sounding.
    I prefer the blue and gold over the blue and gh12-30 combo.Try it its very very good.

    Well I've ordered a Blue to replace one of the G12H Anniversarys in my Top Hat CR 2X12. I've heard the combo sounds great. Should have it in by the weekend.
