Nah all the soundguys will tell you to not plug it in ;) You should know :P


haha. i might just become that asshole with the 4x12. or I might not like it and sell it on


A quad with low sensitivity speakers isn't really that loud. We've become so used to high wattage 100db sensitivity speakers in one and two 12" enclosures that I think we tend to forget.
I've recently gone back to quads after years of 2 x 12 use and am confused as to why I ever stopped using them in the first place ( other than absence of roadies )


That's interesting - i have a celestion something or other in my combo which is an extremely high sensitivity speaker, it's outrageously loud. Quad might be quite useable in that case. That being said our show on the weekend we had to really turn down as the room had a crazy bright reverb. Our poor sound guy had a tough night.

The standard quad speaker a G12T 75 is 97 db. They're ok for hard rock and metal but a bit scooped overall. Heritage G12 65's are more pleasing and also rate at 97db ( mix well with greenbacks ) as are the later Creamback M 65's and of course the good old Greenback M at 98db.
You can also disconnect two speakers and get the effect of the cab with less sound out.

I personally recommend G12T and Greenbacks every time, they mix extremely well

Arrived today - Boss Katana. I've had a few moments recently where my guitar rig is buried in pile of gear or a van or rehearsal space, so I figured it would be nice to have a second amp that doesn't move. and with FX and an aux in and an acoustic mode, I can play at home and rehearse. Also I can play with stereo AND have a backup rig. So far - clean sound and FX are great. Distortions are awful and unusable ;-p

Shortly in the mail: Eastwood 12 string courtesy of Slowy. Quite excited, I've only wanted a 12 string for about 10 years.

The drive sounds are my favourite thing about Katanas!! What kind of sound are you trying to get, maybe we can help? :)

My issue with the Katana dirt is that i cant stack as well as i can with pedals. Have been using Danish Pete's crunch tones with my Orion and Judge together to get me to a happy place.
In saying that i have been using some of the preset metal tones with no issues. Really depends on my mood i guess.
