I was using my greenback reissues at band practice last night. I've had them for several years now. Listening to them mic'd with an SM57 and pumped through the mains, they sound really nice. Playing diamond chords, they really chimed and have plenty of bass, mellow mids, and chimey/jangley highs. Playing through the OD channel and pushing the cones into breakup, they impart their own character to the tone. I like it. This wasn't alway the case...... ....When I first got them they were raspy and had some cone cry, but have settled in very nicely and have fantastic sustain. The cone cry has disappeared somewhere along the way as well. Overall, I really dig them think I'm going to keep them. Corksniffy wouldn't like them because they don't say brand whatever on the back, but they do the tones I like to hear and that's all that matters to me. I guess the main lesson I've learned from this is that speakers can take long periods of time to settle in, and I am going to take that into consideration from now on before judging speakers.
