VHT used V30s (as well as other speakers) in their cabs up until they designed the P50 and contracted Eminence to build them. If you like V30s with other amps, I'm sure you'll like them with VHT/Fryette amps.
I run my Deliverance through V30s and it sounds great, but can get ice-picky VERY easily. Haven't tried P50Es yet, but I hope to do so as soon as I can find a VHT cab used for a decent price.
Pretty much exactly my thoughts. I'm running my Sig:X through V30's at band practice and through a k100 at home, and have to adjust the highs for sure. I was actually a bit concerned about using V30's with it, but it turned out nicely. Still going to get a Deliverance cab at some point, though.
Some of that stuff in there are way off reality. WAY off!!! About the low end or the harsh top end due to suspension etc. Worst? Front loading it that could produce again "treble distortion". Well, some of the best sounds came for me front front loaded closed or open back V30 cabinets and what is more, palm mute was excellent with body and I'd swear I'd want MORE high end. Not less. Plus I thought that the V30 was always a middy speaker.
I could imagine these statements have more to do with the fryette sound/amps/design in combination with the V30 rather than the speaker itself.
"is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!
Well I recently acquired a Sig X and I'm trying to find a cab for it. The Fryette cabs are expensive and it seems to me that the P50E speakers aren't nearly the better of the Eminence line. There's a guy in town selling a mint Ibanez Thermion 4x12 cabinet (V30s) and I'm wondering if its going to compliment the Sig. V30 cabs seem to be easy to come by than Eminence cabs.
