    Rewiring a Mono/Stereo Mesa 2x12

    I have a Mesa 2x12 horizontal rectifier cab (2FB) which I bought used several years ago. It has a non-standard wiring setup which is custom from the factory based on the jack plate: The previous owner swapped the original 4 ohm speakers for 8 ohm versions—hence the sticker indicating 16...

    Are there any FRFR solutions out there that can compete with a 2x12 + power amp?

    OK, let me re-phrase that.. Part 1... Curious to know if there are any FRFR solutions (passive or active) that can compare to a 2x12 cab + power amp (either valve or solid state)?? Part 2.. Those of you that can speak from experience, how does it compare tonally? And volume-wise? Thanks!

    Matrix GT-1000FX Advice

    I have a GT-1000FX that I run with my Axe Mk II and wanted some advice regarding setting levels correctly so I don't blow a speaker cab. At my band's practice space I currently have a Seismic Audio 2x12 that has two 16 ohm Eminence Man O Wars in it. I re-wired them in stereo so the RMS wattage...

    Melodic, edge of break-up cleans, SM box, OH 212 3QTR and strings!

    Hey guys, It's time for something mellow, melodic and with a little emotion. I wrote and recorded this song a little while ago when I was trying out some new OwnHammer IR's from the new California Duo pack. The 212 3QTR cab is quite a special little gem that shouldn't be overlooked. For this...

    Cheap Cab Surprisingly Good

    So I needed a 2x12 for the band practice space because I was sick of hauling my Mission Gemini-2P due its weight, and I looked around at some second-hand shops. I ended up buying a cab that was made by Seismic Audio which someone had put Eminence Man O Wars in. I got it for cheap and when I...

    Periphery's Prototype Peavey Cabs

    Misha and I talked about his rig yesterday before their Milwaukee show at a meet and greet. I asked him why he has switched to the Peavey cabs, and his reply was simply "because they are f***ing awesome." Peavey built him a 2x12 that has a V30 and a Creamback, and a cab that only does sub...

    New rock tune! 90's style? Ownhammer 2x12 Orange and Corncob grind!

    Hey all! I just uploaded this new track. I hadn't properly played guitar for about a month because of some hand issues I had going on. I'm back in the saddle again now so I had to make a new rock tune. So this track features a new cab by Ownhammer that is coming out in a day or 2 so stay...

    Cab Pack 23 Djents: "Vigorous Riffs"

    I just got my first 8-string guitar and it's a Jackson with Juggernauts on it. Holy crap that's a lot of strings! :D I have to say that the pickups are both clear and dark at the same time which is rarely the case. They're kind of balanced no matter where you play on the neck. I love the feel of...

    Reggae-rock! Auto wah, AC15 and new OH Vox 2x12 content!

    Hi everyone! It's a sunny day today here in Holland so it's a perfect day for some skankin' reggae! Disclaimer: the true reggae purists might argue that this isn't completely traditional reggae all the way through :) Anyway so Ownhammer is releasing a new Vox 2x12 extension cab today with the...

    2x12 kills a 4x12?

    After releasing Cab Pack 23: USA Citrus 2x12 I've had a few people ask me "what's the difference between the 2x12 versions of the USA and Citrus" and unsurprisingly it's a bit hard to describe by words. I thought I'd show it to you guys as there's no consistancy here at all. To me the USA 2x12...

    ML USA 2x12 and Citrus 2x12 Samples

    It's coming out "soon" for real guys. :) I just finished fixing the last tweaks to some Preset-Cab Bundles that will be included in the pack to get everyone started and while at it I recorded some clips using these presets. The "based on Mesa 2x12": Very modern. Crushing. Slight smiley face...

    Mesa 4x12 vs Mesa 2x12!!

    The first part of this clip is an old 4x12 Mesa Oversize cab (the one Cab Pack 13 is based on) and the second part of this clip is a semi-old 2x12 Mesa Rectifier cab (the one that'll be in the next Cab Pack with an Orange 2x12). Both cabinets have the same old "better" 70w real English...

    Bring on the sludge! (ML USA Citrus 2x12 Cab Pack)

    Who reckons their s.state power amp gives the same 'punch' as..

    Let me rephrase the question.. Who believes a solid state power amp (be it a Matrix or Behringer etc) can produce the same punch/air movement/'feel' etc etc, as their valve power amp/valve head through the same cab?? We're not talking FRFR here guys, we're talking non-FRFR. Curious to know...

    Is the Ultra right for me?

    Hey everyone, New (potential) user here. I'm looking for a solution for my live rig, and have turned my attention to Fractal. My objective is to simplify my setup, mimic my current tone, and add an available tight, high gain (Mesa/JCM/Deizel) stage. Currently, my set up is: Guitar > Tuner >...
