Vendor York Audio Master Thread - Newest Cab Pack: HWAT 412 FN50 Lite

Brian Angiel

I need to try it in a 2x12. I only got to listen to it for a short bit through a Mesa Recto 1x12 and like you mentioned, it’s a tight speaker. I have a few speakers I want to try pairing with it and think it could be really cool.

My next pack doesn’t have Celestions, and it’s been fun playing something unique. I just wish there were more hours in a day because I’ve been on a cab and speaker buying rampage lately and have a ton of stuff I want to shoot.
Any hints on what not-Celestions you’re shooting? WGS? Eminence? Electrovoice?

Awesome!! I trust your ears and know that you will deliver something that sounds amazing :)

Like I mentioned before the best sound I heard of that speaker was in a MESA OS 4x12 cab that helped "fill/enhance" the low end to make it more balanced

I have a Weber on the way, but I don’t know if it’ll make it’s way into this pack.


Other speaker companies exist?
Crazy, right? I’ve been waiting a long time to find one of these cabs. It’s cool to experience something completely different than anything else I have.

Thanks man, I think it’ll be a really cool speaker with the right pairing and cab. I’m thinking the Orange 2x12, Zilla Fatboy, or Mesa 2x12 will be a nice home for it. I want to try it with a Redback, WGS Retro 30, or a Creamback M65.

Which one? They make a bunch of good ones. I need to shoot my custom 2x10 Weber X-Cab with AlNiCo 10V speakers. Fantastic sounding cab! Their California is a good take on the old Fender/JBL speakers. Their Blue Dog is, IMHO, better than the Celestion Blue. I have a P12NT that kills for the Tweed Twin thing with a bit more bite.

A Redback would be an interesting pairing!

I can't pick 3. I love every pack I have from York as they are all different. The magic of Justin's work! 👍

But since you like metal/rock, you can't go wrong with the Bogna, FDMN or MES packs. I think you can spread the tone variety around with either of those. You get a bonus in the FDMN pack since you get a blend or individual option of the V30 and M25 (still crossing my fingers for a V30/T75 blend option on an updated Bogna pack!)
Which ir pack would work really well with the 6160/5150?

The M20 and M25 packs (similar speakers to that in the actual cab - G12-M20) work well with a 5150 or high gain amp. I have an original PVY 5150 amp and those packs are great. But to be honest, the Bogna and FDMN cabs also work extremely well too. I love the bite in the Bogna especially the 57+160 mix. Think of the packs as different EQ curves. The mic position/type & cabinet play just as much a role as the speaker itself. Justin has great descriptions on the site for each pack as well to help. Enjoy!

Do you already have these packs ? Load up mix 01 of each and see what you like.
Your guitar, your hands, your monitoring, your context (live band vs solo vs recording) will all make a difference.

They are all good, but I think this is going to come to personal preference.

If you don't have the packs, zila + fman + mesa 212 ($1!) Will get you started with 7 different 'mix 01' files for not much coin.

Once you've picked a cab+speaker, try they other mixes.

I'm curious how the new Boogie cabs sound. Do these work with an AX8. I dig my floor unit. Here's a solo I did with the Boogie sound from my old AX8.

The 5150 progressive/modern metal sound is definitely not a G12M-25/20 speaker, I'd steer you heavily towards a Mesa 4x12 Oversized cab for that sound. The 5150 + Mesa Oversized combo is a tried and tested classic that's behind some of the genre's most iconic tones. The Friedman 4x12 would be a second option, which would also crossover into bluesy territory since it also has the G12M-25s in there.
