Right guys, i've got it down to the two...

The 1960A 4x12 or the 1960BV, but now i'm stumped for which to choose and would welcome some help and opinions on these two cabs.

Cheers!

The 1960A has G12T75 speakers in it and the 1960BV has Vintage 30's and a tad bit more low end.

I would without question get the BV...for the V30 speakers. Some folks claim a better sound is had from the B (non-angled) I personally can't really tell the difference.

What amp are you going to use it with?

For almost anything I'd suggest the 1960BV over the 1960A. Vintage 30s seem to sound better with almost any amp than the G12T-75s.

And to whoever said the Vintage 30s have more low-end... The G12T-75s definitely have more low end, I have the 1960b with them in it and they have more chug to them than any V30 cab I've tried.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

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

What I meant by more low-end was about the fact that the BV is a straight cab whereas the A is angled. The majority of cabs I've played, the straight ones have had more low-end, though I never done a test of G12T75 vs Vintage 30s for low-end or anything like that so you may be correct there.

To be honest, there wont be a world of difference, although saying that, im going to replace the top 2 GT's in my 1960A with 2 V-30's, that apparently is the best thing you can do...

Wow, a bit of confusion it seems.

I did mean the 1960BV, not the B. It wasn't a random hand spasm that decided to hit the V!

I'm looking at angled 4x12's. I'm heading more towards to BV as i love my mids and i don't use a huge amount of bass anyway.
Also because someone asked.....i'm using a 3ch dual recto head with the cab.

Thanks for the opinions guys!
