  • FELLOW G-FLEX OWNERS: What amps have you found that get along great with this cab?

    What amps have you found that just get along great with this cab?
    I have the 2x12, and my Knucklehead sounds good... But I want something better suited.

    I am leaning towards a VHT... But am really open to ideas.

    Just looking for some feedback on amps that you have or have played that really get along with these cabs.

    GRACIAS!

    To be really honest I've yet to find a head that sounds bad paired up with my 212 Genz Benz. I've used a XXX, 5150, and 3 Channel DR.

                I really like how my Engl Blackmore sounds through my G-Flex. I've also had good results with a Engl Powerball, Mesa Mark IV, Peavey 5150, Peavey XXL and a Peavey Triple XXX.

                A couple amps that I didn't like through the G-Flex: Framus Cobra, VHT 50CL and a Cornford MK50H.

                I bought my G-Flex the first year they came out and I've also swapped out the stock speakers for a Hellatone 30/60 mix.

                  +1 to your opinion on the VHT. I didn't like my VHT 50CL with the G-Flex at all!

                    Wow... I am kinda sad.

                    I was hoping a VHT would go well... Oh well.

                    So the Blackmore sounds good... How heavy can that amp get? I mean, I have read up on it some in the past, but can it get pretty heavy through the G-Flex? Is it nice and tight? Etc.... I have heard some clips, but never through a G-Flex. I definatly want something that can get tight through that cab. Curious about the POwerball too.

                      Any amp with too-aggressive high end. It tends to mellow those fequencies out a bit, so yea.

                      Made my Crate bv120hb sound 100% better than any other cab I played it through when I owned it.

                        I've got my 5150 going into a G-Flex 2x12. It sounds great, although I've never tried any other cab with it. It was the perfect fit for me because it sounds as big as a 1/2 stack, but it's smaller. It has some great features (e.g. front-loaded speakers).

                          I LOVE my Blackmore through the G-Flex. The Blackmore is a pretty versatile amp, even though it has shared tone controls. It has good clean tones and kick ass high gain tones. Go to the Rock Solid Amps web-site to check out clips. I think some of them are Engls through a G-Flex.

                            I've heard a lot of bad things about VHT + G-Flex, FWIW. It sounded pretty good with a Mark III, but not as good as a Mesa Halfback does, IMO.

                            My 5150 sounded pretty good through it, and I've heard ENGLs are great matches for them.

                              Ive played A Triple XXX, Crate Gt500H, a RedBear mk60, and a Epi Valve Jr thru mine. The triple XXX and the gt500h sound fantasic. The Valve jr sounds ok and the RedBear has way too much bass on tap to sound good thru the gFlex.
