There have been very few times where I liked the 75s, usually older ones broken in from 1983-85. I prefer the V30s. But then again, there are a few variations. The Marshall proprietary versions (they simply say 'Vintage' on them) from the mid 90s are my favorite. The current MIC ones aren't terrible. They're ok.øøøøøøø wrote: ↑Sat May 12, 2018 2:39 pm
What's your opinion of the G12T-75 vs the V30?
Also, what's your opinion of the change from "Made in UK" versus "Made in China" Celestions? People love to debate the differences (or lack thereof) but I was such a Fender guy for so long I'm kind of ignorant of the finer points of Celestions.
The MIC G12H and G12M are pretty good, I prefer the H. The Heritage MiUK just has that special thing, especially after they've been broken in.
If I really think about it, going with the G12H.... the Chinese made ones are a little more scooped so they may appear a tad brighter. The UK ones have that nice midrange that just sits in a mix well without being fatiguing. IME anyway.
IMO, the G12H is THEEE all-time best rock'n'roll speaker when it comes to British crunch.
One more thing, I think you'd like the original G12-65 from the early 80s. (1982-83). It's one of my favorites and the favorite of many others.
The G12-80 is another interesting one. They sound great in something like a twin reverb when you don't want such a scooped sound but don't want to totally change course. They have a big 'cleaner' sound compared to others in British amps (i.e. Eric Johnson used to favor them in the 80s).
