Baffle 4x12 cutaway.
She can adapt smoothly
It is a closed cabinet, impedance of 4ohms, that could theoretically collect up to 400 Watts.
Originally, it contains 4 Celestion Vintage Rockmaster 8 ohms each mounted in parallel.
Like Hughes & Kettner, construction is very solid, there's no say, it's beefy! (Apart from the evil presence coating scratches.
I used it with a Hughes & Kettner 100 watt tower reverb and now Fender Dual Showman with Red knobs 100 Watt All Tube.
This speaker reproduces a lot of bass at low volumes, which are present enough without being too dull. As soon as one climbs the volume levels are balanced agreeably.
Great advantage of this baffle, it is not like its cousins asthmatic Marshall, he has little breath even at high volume.
I have not tried a lot of model before this one apart from Marshall, and I much prefer my H & K would do little for breath.
However, Vintage Rockmaster (Series I've found that for Hughes & Kettner) are a bit messy in the bass on distos.
They do not, however, lack of fishing. Rendering the low-medium, however, is very beautiful
Only by pushing it a bit as we rediscover the blast medium.
What I like is that it does not sound too muffled despite the serious and low-medium well represented.
Of the crunch tones and saturated, it brings one side a bit "in his hoarse, a little" grainy ", very hot not to displease me.
on the other hand there, with the power of the Fender, I'm afraid to push down, despite the 400 watts it is supposed to bear in 4 ohms.
I subsequently replaced by the bowls:
- 2 Celestion Vintage 30 8Ohms top
- 2 8 ohm Celestion GK100 down
The first thing that appears is a much better definition throughout the spectrum.
The bass is more accurate, more singing and mediums.
The projection appears to be larger.
Changes in positions e mics on guitars that feel a lot more.
The dynamic is also better retransmitted and it is easier to express the finesse game, which require softness. Since I play in the spheres of rock, it suits me better because I need very soft passages as energetic and dynamic passages.
With experience, I would do this choice for quality. A few years later, I prefer a 2x12, galley less to carry.
I do not blame him so that to be a 4x12, which is not in itself a defect.
I do not put him 10 because it is always better elsewhere.
