New Cab Day Woo Hoo!!!

Post by Hogie34 » Wed Jun 17, 2015 3:14 am

Well, I finally saved enough money to not have to make payments on one. I wanted a separate 212 for my Jim Root #4 but didn't want to go with a signature cab as well as a signature head. I'm not big on signature gear, but the ability to have a Rockerverb based, low wattage amp...well you get the picture. This baby arrived at 9:30 this morning and I just stopped playing through it long enough to take the picture. PPC212 in black to match the head sleeve I made for the #4 . I was playing the head through an old Carvin 4x12 that I've had since the mid 80's. It sounded dang good and was almost enough to keep me from buying an Orange cab...almost. Now to start saving for that TH100 and matching PPC412 I've been eye balling. Guess I need to start selling off my Marshalls since absolutely none of them get played since buying Orange :D

You know, they were bad but not as bad as I thought they were gonna be. I'm a believer in the grill cloth that Orange uses. It is a big piece of the mojo with these cabs. It blocks out a lot of the crud in the vintage 30 that I don't like.

After about hour 3, it got a lot punchier. These Orange cabs are the best sounding cabs I've ever owned.

Yeah, it won't take me long to get to 100hrs on it . I don't understand the whole "Orange amps don't sound good with 12-75's" thing that I read so much of. That's what the Carvin cab was loaded with and man, it sounded good. These 30's definitely have a different bite to them but they sound dang good none the less.

Just a little personal opinion here now. I've been a Marshall guy for years. Have played nothing but since the late 80's. I really don't care that they farmed out the lower cost amps to Vietnam. What I do care about is their lack of attention to the customer base. We've been crying for more saturation etc and do they listen? No. They come out with another BS re-issue. I've never owned one that I didn't have to run a pedal in front of to get what I wanted.
Then last year I bought my first Orange head. Rockerverb MK II . I was amazed by the ability to just plug straight into the amp. So I bought an old cab off craigslist from 1970. Even better sound. Slowly been replacing my Marshall gear with a different model from Orange. I can't say enough good things about their amps and speakers cabs. I just wish I had taken the plunge earlier. Could have saved me a lot of money and frustration....ok, maybe the frustration part is accurate . Anyway, looking forward to acquiring more over the next few years. Th100 and a Dual Dark 50 are next and then I think I'm done for a while .
