I've been thinking about this a lot lately, so I decided to post the question here and get the infinite knowledge of UG's GG&A


So I'm going to soon purchase a Peavey 5150 and once that's done, I'm definately going to need to upgrade my cab.

A lot of people have suggested Orange and Mesa 2x12's.

Which do you think would suit me better?

I'm going to be gigging in a deathcore band with them heavily.

What I'm really asking is, which would be more reliable on the road, and possibly sound better? From what I understand they both have V30's in them.

Hmm... Mesa's are brilliant. Never played Orange, but JFAC use them and I know guys who swear by them. Try them both (if you can), it's really personal oppinion - both would suit you fine.

Definitely the mesa recto 212. Best 212 I have heard and you can get it for cheap in the us.

Really, I'd just buy which ever one's cheaper. A lot of people seem to think Orange cabs are amazing, I've never tried one, so I really wouldn't know... but I can't imagine them being so much better than a Mesa that they're worth the extra $200 more I see most selling for

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

oranges are still the best cabs I've played. They sound amazing. Mesa is good too though. I personally think the Orange is a little bit more oomph. They are designed differently.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer
