      Listen to any album released pre 1980, that used marshall amps. There's a very high likelihood that you're hearing greenbacks.

            but seriously - they are my favorite speaker - you just need to have a few more of them than a lot of other speakers with higher power handling.

              no, I doubt they'd appeal to me, I don't play classic rock or blooz. they're known for what they can't do, which is have a lot of headroom and produce a fullrange sound, thus they have pronounced mids and a softer rounder tone.
              I'm sure they're cool, I've owned and do own a lot of Marshall 4x12's that have 75's and 80's in them, I've always liked them so I never seeked anything else.

                From classic to hard rock, they can't be beat for sure!

                  Low headroom.. early breakup.. warm.. good for classic rock.. good with Marshalls?? Good for mixing with V30s or GT75's for more modern sound?

                    My experience with them have been mixed.

                    Modded Crate V30H = pretty good
                    Fender Blues Deluxe Re-issue = cat vommit
                    Egnater Rebel 30 = not bad but ET65 was a lot better
                    Mojave Plexi-45 = LOVE
                    Good Dealings with: LoFiBrian, 23cicero, Keebz, O'Rourke, PBomber22, cadillacman, chuckmehh, FXR, Jesse G, lank81

                    BlueStrat: I have to laugh when people will pay $1.69 for a bottle of Pepsi, 3 bucks for a latte or $1.39 for a frigging candy bar but a song they can own, listen to, learn and keep for years is too much at 99 cents.

                      If you were to mix a Greenback with another speaker, a Heritage 30 (Anniversary Editions) would be tits!

                        I like the tone of them but use Scumback 65 watt M75-LHDC's (a touch darker than a regular GB) and a 100 watt M75 which pretty much a higher powered GB. That way I can use 1X12's and / or 2X12's with my 100watt head and not blow anything up.

                          Love them with a Recto or TSL60. Not the brightest sounding speakers out there, but they work to get me where I want to go.

                            Pros; warm, pleasant on the ear, not too high efficiency which helps control volume in some situations, quite lively sounding and has a nice edge to the midrange/ high end when pushed a little.

                            Cons; low wattage, not very tight, can get flabby and farty at higher gain, especially as the volumes goes up, can be a bit too midrangey I open back cabs, and can be raspy with some overdrive.

                              You'll still blow **************** up, just not the speakers.
