So if I were to purchase the ENGL Blackmore, what cab would best compliment it? I want something that'll give it a nice, tight bottom-end. Well, just all around good for metal and sorts.

I prefer the 2x12's thanks.

First off, I hate you and your money.

Something with V30's I suppose... price range?



I have a feeling I won't be getting it for a while, though.

I was thinking about getting something with V30's, but I'm absolutely clueless when it comes down to cabs and speakers.

I really don't want to spend too much on the cab, although the cab is very important. Let's just say...I don't want to spend too much, but I don't want too little to the point where I'm purchasing some mg cab or something.

err...400 USD or so...

Well, everyone I've heard in most other threads like this say Avatar cabs...


OFF TOPIC, FOO'!!: What I don't get is when did Ritchie Blackmore turn metal and use metal amps?

Last time I knew he changed styles is when he went to Blackmore's Night...

Oh well!

Blackmore is basically the uncredited founder of metal... he was also pretty metal in "Rainbow" with Dio.

supposedly now he plays mostly Classical Guitar.

What kind of metal do you play? what tunings do you play in? etc.

You should be able to find a decent used cab in your range, look into:

Bogner 2x12
Splawn Over-Size 2x12
Mako 2x12
Mesa Recto 2x12
VHT Fat-Bottom 2x12

You could also go with the Vader as well, it's in your price range new.

I'm not sure. I think I saw a bogner 2x12 cab somewhere, and it was priced at around 600 USD. Aren't bogner cabs filled with greenbacks, though?

You know, that's funny! I had no clue.

I play 80's metal, a tad bit of thrash, modern metal, and a bit of hardcore stuff. I don't do "death metal".

I usually play in standard or drop D tuning. At most, I probably play in D standard.

Thing about ordering cabs online--i'm not how much it's going to be to ship that 70 pound lug to hawaii.

When i first started looking at Engls I bypassed the Blackmore for close to the same reasons. I wasnt looking for a rock amp or anything even close to Deep Purples tone i wanted heavy modern metal tone. So after a little more research I hit up some blackmore clips and to my surprise the thing was a metal beast... After that i started looking at everythhing a manufacture had to offer and not just skimming over stuff and only looking at what i thought would be a metal amp.

i'd definitely be considering the blackmore for the stuff you play.

i thought some bogner cabs had v30s? i thought the one i tried had, anyway (but could be wrong).

postage will be the killer most likely... i'm guessing it's a similar thing in hawaii to northern ireland, where they say "free UK postage", then in the small print it says "excludes northern ireland"... when in fact it's actually wrong to call it the UK and exclude northern ireland... the UK minus northern ireland is great britain.

GOLLY!!

My friend called Dan's (the guitar store we shop at) for me, and he got a price estimate for the engl blackmore! He said that I can get the head for 1,495 USD.

And I just realized how much money that really is. Perhaps I'll purchase the cab a bit after I purchase the head. Question, it IS possible for me to hook up the cab to my orange rocker 30, right? How would I do that?

There should be a cable running from the amp to the speaker... disconnect it, match the appropriate ohms and whatnot to the head.

the v30 is only ok for 60 watts, so you'd need to keep the blackmore turned down low. it should work, though when i was in your situation i chickened out and just waited for my cab to come...

Just from what I've heard about the Blackmore *haven't had a chance to play the beaut * something with V60's really brings out the best in it.

I was looking into snagging one for a long time, got a VHT instead, but just from what people have told me V30's can kind of sound harsh with since it's already a pretty mid heavy amp. Some like it, some hate it, just one of those things I suppose...

I'd wait until I got the amp first, then take it somewhere to test out with cabs.

I've also heard ENGL's pair very well with ENGL cabs

Best of luck man! It's a sexy amp.
