is it wise to use the bright sound k100 to compliment the dark sound of the vintage 30...actually i was considering the vintage 40w from the 212 Bugera Vintage cab??? (i know the k100's are 100w ea. and thats a big difference from the 40w spkr, but I was hoping that this combination would be better than using just a cabinet with one type of speaker).
Yeah. But the same can be said for DAR amps and other amps which use "weird" tubes...dammit I want a pair of KT120s..I might blow up my amp and burn my house down, but at least I'll go out in a blaze of glory

i don't agree with the descriptions of the speakers, but many people like matching those speakers.

well said.

X'ing V30's with 100w'ers has become the new V30/75w'er.

...but black is still the new black

black as 'smell the glove', doesn't get any more black. that is why black will always be the new black. V30's and K-100's are popular though, they do give that new metal sound

very intellectual... thanx a lot! That's what I meant really, but I couldn't find the wording for it, lol, and yeah a "new-day" metal tone was what I was aiming for.

goddamit Gum...


you're my favorite UGer. Including myself.


...and I think a lot of myself.

EDIT: good catch Ippon, the g12k100 is all about great low end. I think that's what Gum meant by not agreeing with the discriptions.

This speaker is best known for its massive Low-end and Mid-range attack! Its Treble is very tame.



i gotta agree with grisk on this one, that is better than i could have said it. i characterize the K-100 more as a stiff sound, it tames high gain and handles more low end than it should without muddying up. the cleans are a bit sterile, the punch/attack is great for wide range of applications, more thump than a V30 imo. i like the K more because it doesn't have the harsh mids the V30 has, instead it has sound that sits in the mix a bit more subtly while filling more space somehow at the same time. the K is also a much better speaker for a modeling/multi-effects imo, the characteristics of the modeler like the more sterile tones of the K.

imo, the V30 is more for a wide range of half-ass tones, that is high wattage, stands out in a mix more, adds a bit of color, is pretty damn responsive for a higher wattage speaker

the K-100 is more dedicated to it's characteristics, higher wattage handling, more even sounding to the point of sterility, will not get overwhelmed, can even tame a high gain tone. i run a k-100 when i want even response (across frequencies and volumes), am running high gain, and ESPECIALLY if i slack tune

btw, you get no play here
