Closest StoreVancouver, British Columbia
I bought this cabinet NIB from the Vancouver Terminal location (thanks Darren Scott) on a year end closing out deal. The tone from the EVH Celestions, essentially vintage greenbacks, is the benchmark standard rock/blues tone one would expect from the Kurt Mueller coned guitar speakers from around the mid seventies 'Blackback' speakers manufactured at that time frame. Since these are a rated twenty watt speakers, they are very sensitive to the subtle nuances from whatever the player is telegraphing through the guitar. And at 96db rating, they have that 'woody' 'dry' characteristic that greenbacks from that era have. In spades mind you. This cabinet is also an extreme value as the price differential from raw speakers is absolute bare bones minimal. Essentially when you purchase the complete cabinet with speakers you are getting the cabinet for around a hundred bucks vs just raw speakers. Unloaded 4X12 Baltic birch cabinets are generally going for four to five times that amount. Also, the EVH cabinet comes with a heavy duty slip cover. I have used multiple heads with this cabinet including Marshall #2466 Vintage Modern, #1959 RR Super Lead 100, JCM 2000 TSL head, Mesa Triple Rectifier, Orange AD30 THC. All these amps sound spectacular though the EVH cabinet. The cab brings out the best of these amps while adding that 'Greenback' vintage voice to the tone. To sum up, awesome tone from any amp with a 16 ohm tap on the output transformer, rock solid construction with premium Baltic birch plywood, included slip cover and looks very very cool (mine is stealth black), extreme value for your hard earned cash. If you call yourself a serious guitar player, you should own this cabinet. Cheers !
