The Eminence Lynch Super V12 has a thicker-than-usual metal flange, so make sure it will mount properly in your amplifier cabinet.

I think you'll like the Celestion Vintage 30 better than the GH12. And since you have only a 5-watt amp, you could try one of the sweeter sounding speakers like a Celestion Blue (15 watts).

yeah Vintage 30s sound really good, I thought of GH12's because Doug Aldrich of Whitesnake uses them and I like his tone.

V30s are the only speakers i have ever played out of that are good speakers the speaker i have now is a peice, i turned a 1x12 combo into a cab and used the speaker. Its temporary until I buy a new cab

Then something modern sounding like a V30 or the Lynch should be alright. Haven't really heard the Lynch, just heard about it. Remember that the speaker is just one part of the tone chain, it alone won't get you Stephen's tone.
#8
Who's Stephen? Lynch's first name is George.

TS, I think Lynch used G12Hs back in the day. But like the Quail said, there's alot more going on in his tone.

Its George not Steve... lol but yeah i know im not really looking for exact Dokken tone i just like it, Im gonna buy a MXR 10 band eq also, this amp needs a presence knob badly

Another thing is i want a tight low end, this amp has a really fat loose low end at least what i get with this crap speaker, it has a lot of bass i usually keep the bass knob at like 2 or 3

If you want tight low end, put the MXR in front with the frowny face curve.

And Quail, Stephen Lynch is a comedian/musician unless I haven't heard of another one.

I couldn't remember the name, so I just googled... and got Stephen. It said "studio musician" I thought that might be him (dunno what he's done outside of Dokken). Is all I know.

Most of the tone in that video is coming from a modded Marshall. You're gonna have a tough time getting that out of the Blackstar.

I know, im not trying to nail that tone, its just an idea of what i want.

Lynch says his Plexi wasnt modded but who knows

His early tones were stock but he was definitely using modded Marshalls around that time. If you want to come close, set up your Blackstar for a Marshall type tone with a decent amount of gain, slightly less than what you'll want overall and use a TS to boost it that little bit extra. Use a G12H30 loaded cab. V30s might work as well.

you know at first i wasnt going to go with a V30 because its a typical speaker that a lot of ppl use but i can see why.

I heard thje Super V12 is like a v30 but a little warmer and fuller? not to sure

i wish youtube had more videos so i could hear what the difference in a gh12 and a v30 is

The amplifiers and cabinets in that video look like Marshall Silver Jubilee models, so whatever came with those cabinets is probably a good choice for you.

The Celestion G12T-75 should be a good choice for that sort of tone. I've got them in a Carvin MTS 2x12 combo and I can get that sound without difficulty.
