    I have a matchless clubman running through an Orange 4x12
    with vintage 30s

    Has lots of mids : (

    Would you guys recomend Greenback G12Ms or G12H's

    I like a warm tone.

    Thanks;)

    Not a recommendation necessarily, but a lot of DC30 combo rigs run one G12H and one V30 in tandem. I think some older combos had a G12H paired with a G12M.

    If you want the Matchless tone, use the Matchless cab and speakers. I have used their amps for a long time. If you want the complete Matchless tone, use all of it.

    Thanks

    I like 4x12 cabs. I never was into an open back tone.
    But, what do you think about the greenbacks?

    Matchless does make a closed back 4x12.

    DC30 amps originally came with one Vintage 30 and one G12M Greenback. Later they switched to one G12H30 and one G12M Greenback. They never came stock with one G12H and one Vintage 30.

    The mismatched pair works well in the DC30 and other amps too. The Vintage 30 gives you the mids and more highend while the Greenback gives you less mids and earlier breakup. They complement each other nicely.

    Both - Matchless 4x12s have a mix of 2 GBs and 2 G12H30s - just like their 2x12s. It's a great mix with Matchless amps. They compliment each other extremely well.
