Old lurker, new member

Post by Jigsisme » Thu Jan 10, 2019 6:05 pm

Been on here for years but just now became member. I'm an ol hippie so excuse my ignorance.
Straight to the point:
First question, correct way to change bulb (Dark Terror jewel light)? I removed jewel bezel, I can touch the bulb, push it in, but won't come out.
Newly bought cr120h, thing is a brute and I love the cleans! It's not my evh but I wanted something different. Traded a Peavey XXX for a new Orange. Really enjoying my choice. I've run it thru the evh 4x12 and 2x12. A genz benz g-flex 2x12, and a geezer 2x12 (vintage 30). They all sound good but different. The best so far is the evh 4x12 with the genz benz.
However, none of them sound as good as the Orange 2x12 that I used to try out the head...that thing was special! I'm gonna get an Orange cab in very near future so which do I get, the 2x12 of the 4x12? I want the 4x12!
I'm a home player but jam with bands weekly. I usually lug my evh 4x12 everywhere so used to the burden of the 4x12.
Appreciate the immediate help and advice.

Welcome on board!! So which 212 was it? There are two.... I'd recommend the open back, it sounds great and smaller and easier to lift that the closed back. Enjoy whichever you decide!!

Yeah, both cabs are great, OB212 or PPC212.

I've got the PPC212, it's already a bit of a monster to move. The weight is heavy but manageable, it's just the sheer weight for size that makes it awkward. I love mine all the same.

First answer. Smash the bulb and use a screwdriver to push and twist. :D
