Hi,

I have a decent selection of cabs and have been playing around with combinations of 2 cabs - especially a 2x12 with a 4x12, but also two different 4x12 cabs together.

Just to narrow the search, can anyone suggest a good "bright" and "aggressive" cab, to mix with a darker, fuller one (like the Celestian Ruby)?

I'm going to audition some in the boutique, but I thought I'd check here for suggestions. ;)
Thanks.

I'll answer my own question.
The Zilla 2x12 open back cabs (StudioOV30 and StudioOG12H) are really nice and punchy on the top end (especially with the SM57 and SM7b mics) and they're really nice combined with a "fuller" 4x12 like the Celestion Ruby or Greenbacks, or the Mesa Recto cabs.

hey jbraner, to get a more aggressive sound, apart from the cabinet itself (you should probably favor 10" or small 12" cabinets), a condenser microphone will probably get you there faster.

OK thanks Guillaume.
I'll play around with the demo cabs some more - but I do like the Zilla cabs mixed with a nice full 4x12 ;)

I've found the REVV and Fortin cabs to be bright and aggresive, check them out!

So check out the BritFrizz and BritMega. They are great. I find I don't like any of the official Celestion cabs on their own BUT the Fortin Beast Green with the 541 combined with the Celestion Greenback with 121 is pretty awesome.

Thanks - I love the Celestion V30s and the Greenbacks.
I tried Britfizz, and the Fortin one - but currently my favourite is the Zilla 2x12 open back together with one of the Celestion 4x12, or the Mesa 4x12 Recto.
This is all super subjective though ;)
