Hello,

I wanna try some WGS Speaker, cause I got rid of my Celestion V30. This high mid fizz and high end squeal isn't longer for me...

 

I mostly play Hardrock like Slash, Alice in Chains, Snakepit but also newer Stuff... I'm a Bluesrock to Hardrock guy having a classic ripping rock tone in mind...

I play through a Cornford MK50II and a Boutique Head (tonally near to an old Marshall) from Germany. Guitars are a CS Gibson 57 VOS Les Paul and a Fender CS 61 Telecaster.

I'm looking for a smoother tone. But also enough mids to cut through the mix...

 

The cab I wanna use is my MESA Recti 2x12 (horizontal). Small height but increased depth.

 

I've heard a lot of good things about the invader?

 

Which speaker / speaker combination would you recommend?

 

 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH SO FAR

Hi!

Even before you mentioned it, as I read your post my mind was thinking: Invader!

Go for a pair of them ... or if you want to further warm up the cabinet go with one ET65.

Hi WGS,

 

I tried a pair of Invaders, but they are a little "small" soundig. Not as huge as the Celestion V30/G12-65 combo. So I think the Invaders aren't really for me...

 

Now I tried a pair of Veterans 30 last week. Very good speaker but a little too dark sounding.

 

So I think I'll wanna have sth betweed the V30 and the Veteran.

 

Wich speaker / combo would you now recommend?

 

THX

Since you state: "Now I tried a pair of Veterans 30 last week. Very good speaker but a little too dark sounding."

I'd say that the Retro 30's should be just to your liking ...
