    It was my understanding they are just the Chinese made ones, nothing special?

    I had one for a while but just sold it. Mine had UK V30's in it. It sounded killer along with my 1960AX. I hated the handles on that cab. It was a wrist buster for sure.

    They just use normal V30s, not specially tweaked ones just for them.

    Thicker plywood than most cabs, and built like tanks. Plus the floor coupling with the wood skids instead of feet or casters. That's mostly what gives them their big solid authoritative sound.

    For several years they also had available the PPC412HP8 with Celestion G12-K100 speakers.
    In 2008 they released the 40th Anniversary PPC412-LTD with Celestion G12H Anniversary speakers.

    I just bought a new 2-12"ob from Orange and it has reg. V30's in it. I just bought it for the cab and will be replacing them.
