Looking to pick up a cheap can to use with my EHX Magnum44 and for the price these look hard to beat. Any one got any experience with them or can suggest an alternative?!

Cheers

Never used one, but a 1x12 open-backed ply cab loaded with a V30 for less than the price of a V30 seems more than fair. I suppose the handle looks a bit flimsy but I can't see much else to go wrong. :)

NB - add 10 euro for shipping (?) and allow for currency variations and foreign exchange fees

I have one of the original tan/basket weave sealed ones, and yep, it's fantastic! :)

Don't think you can do much better ... keep telling our guitarist to look at their cabs as they're the best value new v30 loaded cabs going imo but I haven't tried one.

However, if you're just after a practice cab I've a nice celestion eight 15 loaded cab (put it in an Eden N8 cab I had) I'd sell you cheap(ish) lol .....

Cheers Dude but having deleivered my AE210 to you it would be cheaper for me to just buy one!

Ordered one with a Hughes and Kettner head.

The one thing I'd question is whether a V30 is a good idea. It's certainly a classic speaker, but has a very particular tone that's not always easy on the ear. The G12H is a better all-rounder and the G12M is a good speaker for sparkle and mid-range. All the Celestion ceramic speakers can get a bit harsh, but the blue/gold is a bit pricey. :P

Light travels faster than sound: that's why some people appear bright until they speak.
