AC30 with 1 Greenback and 1 Gold?

Hello my fellow guitar players!

I have a question i could not get properly answered even after searching the web for multiple hours. I am planning to buy an ac30C2 soon (with Greenbacks) and since i hear a lot of praise for the Alnico Blues and Gold, i might swap the Greenbacks later for either 2 Alnico Blues or swap 1 Greenback for a G12 Alnico Gold.

Does anyone have experience with 1 Greenback and 1 G12 Alnico Gold in an ac30? I know there is a wattage difference but i already discovered i like the Blues and Golds better than the Greens.


Cheers!

If price is what's keeping you from getting two Golds, you might want to try Weber speakers. They make fantastic Blue and Green type speakers in a bunch of wattage options, and have Alnico and Ceramic versions of each.

I run a 50 Silver Bell and Blue Dog for my 2x12 with a Vox type amp and it sounds great. You really can't go wrong with any combination of those Green/Blue type speakers with an AC30.

I run a Gold and a G12K-85 and I think it sounds sweet.

+1 on the weber silver bell and blue dog. i run a ceranic silver and an alnico blue in one of my ppc212's. very classic british sound, couldn't be happier. didn't know anyone else had that combo on this forum.

How are you liking that combination? I'm thinking of doing the same to my Top Hat, but I am unsure of how a ceramic silver differs from an alnico silver?

Seems like most players opt for a ceramic silver, why is this?
