Man oh man does the ET65 mate well with other speakers! There have been a few great conversations on
the Q&A forum concerning the ET-65.
So good, in fact, that I believe they warrant a quick mention and review
here! I won’t reprint the entire
threads, just a summary and a link.
Let’s get started with a brand-new conversation concerning a pairing of 2 ET-65’s and 2
Reapers in a 4x12 cab. Here is the quote that sums it up: “I am blown away
at how DELICATE and SENSITIVE the combination is! Even at high gain
settings, notes and chords are still articulate, and the overall tone is still
touch sensitive. Even the tone controls feel like they have more range.”
I could stop there, but hey, that just wouldn’t be at all like me!
Then there is this post
concerning a Marshall JCM800 combo: “So I ordered a pair of the ET65
speakers, received them yesterday and installed them today. After a
couple hours of playing...all I can say is that they are EXACTLY what I was
looking for! For my application, the ET65's gave me a more usable
tighter/deeper-sounding bass, they got rid of the upper-midrange hump and
they smoothed out the highs. There's still a nice sparkle too!
Now my 50 watt open-back combo sounds like a scaled-down version of my 100
watt Superlead thru a 4x12 closed-back bottom. I am extremely
happy!” *** We LOVE to make people happy
The other little feat of magic the ET 65 can perform is in taming an overly
bright and/or sterile amp. From this post about an
overly-bright MusicMan 2x12 combo a user states (concerning the ET65’s) “I
just installed them this past Saturday and I am very happy with them.
They have a deep, full and tight bottom end, a wide/not over-bearing midrange
and a smooth high end with a nice sparkle. They sound great with clean,
overdriven and high-gain settings and they're not even completely broken in
yet!” ***Yep, that’s the ET65, baby!
Okay, I could go on and on … there is more on the forum (just search ET-65), but I’ll
stop with this one concerning a 2x12 cab
mated to an Egnater Tweaker: “I just built a 2x12 cabinet (vertical like
the Hard Truckers JG-1) and I put a ET65 on top of a Vet 30 in it. I have to
say, I was absolutely blown away by how good it sounded with my Egnater Tweaker
in every mode. It is a phenomenal sounding pair of speakers and I couldn't be
See, there’s that word (happy) again!
How cool! I think WGS’s new
slogan should be "We make the world a Happier Place".
It’s Christmas time, how appropriate!
See ya nex week. Oh, and if I don’t
see ya again before Christmas: Merry
Christmas to you and to yours, be blessed, -Vaughn-
