This actually worries me a bit. First, I'm secretly pining for an older 1960a/b cab with 25w Greenbacks...what happens if it doesn't work for our application? Would that push us to start mic'ing all instruments (that's a whole new bucket of worms)? Could this mean my hearing is more trashed than I think?You just never know until you try things, right?
For the same reason you like the V30 in the band context, it works for me in a mix context. Sits in a mix with minimal EQ nicely, works well with a 57. So I seem to use these speakers quite a bit.
