    I have an od100 SH model (LLLLOOOVE IT!) and my main cab (THD 212) has CL80s in it and I am not crazy about the sound I get from these speakers with this head, or my Rocca HG100 for that matter.

    Any recomendations for different speakers for the THD cab that I might prefer. I like the classic rock, blues tones, emphasized mids and tight bottom...

    Thanks, David

    While visiting with John Suhr last week, he indicated that his most recent personal recommendation for a 2x12 was the Eminence Govenors. It did sound pretty darn good.

    Those would be good also. That's what I have in my CAA 2X12.

    If/when I pick up an OD-100 I will end up using Steve's recommendation...having a Bogner 2x12 oversized partial open back with V30's.

    Has anyone played the OD100 with a greenback loaded 4x12?

    I've got a scumback loaded mojo cab on order and I'm hoping it's everything it should be.

    I played John's and it sounded absolutely killer. It sounds great with my GB loaded 2X12 too.

    Steve ,
    I'm interested in one of those CAA 2x12's and have been a long time fan of the Bogner large 2x12 .
    How do you like it compared to the boggy ?
    Thanks
    John

    Our "default" cab which we use to demo the OD100 in the shop is a Greenback loaded 4x12 (a Germino cab, to be exact). It's an absolutely killer combination. That being said, the OD100 sounds fantastic thru all the other 4x12's, too...Cornfords w/ V30's, Diezel X-cabs, etc. Each cab just lends a different flavor. The amp sounds surprisingly good thru a Diezel closed-back 2x12 loaded with the Diezel (Eminence) speakers. My personal fav is the Greenback 4x12 cab, though... just so sweet & juicy....
