    Just ordered the Origin 2x12 speaker cab to match the 50 combo and also a scumback BH75 (similar to the Celestion blackback) and a greenback, will replace those stock seventy-80s in that 2x12, can’t wait to have it shipped! :applause:

    A little update: Finally got the Origin 2x12 speaker cabinet and the greenback speaker delivered, I'm just still waiting on the scumback BH55 to be delivered.. While waiting, I've installed some wheel casters on the 2x12, can’t wait to get everything ready to go once the other speaker gets here! :applause:

    Be sure and post a clip and a full review once you have it all to your liking.

    Hi, newbie here. I bought an Origin 50h a few weeks ago, and as I’ve always just owned combos before I also went ahead and bought the matching 2x12 Origin cab.

    I’m by no means an amp aficionado, but it seems to be a great amp so far. A lot of bang for the buck I would say. I appreciate that it’s relatively simple and vintage flavoured with a few modern improvements. I like to use pedals which it seems to handle pretty well. I’ve yet to try it in a band scenario but I will hopefully do so in the near future and my guess is I won’t be disappointed. All in all, it seems to be a good fit for me.

    I read through this thread and it has inspired me to do a few tweaks of my own. Firstly, I’d like to change out the stock 70/80 speakers in my cab. I’ve noted quite a few recommendations on here for speakers, but what I really want to try is a combination of a Vintage 30 and a G12H-30 anniversary. These can be had slightly used for relatively cheap here in the U.K. Seems to be a popular speaker combination for other amps and I think it would cover a lot of ground, but has anyone tried it with the origin?

    After changing speakers and seeing what impact that has on the amp, I’ll try out different valves. Again, I’ve noted quite a few good recommendations on here, but I’m wondering if anyone’s tried Harma Retros in the origin or had any experience with these valves? Cheers and rock on fellas!

    Welcome to the forum
    Nice first post, all I can help you with, is my own preference for speakers are greenbacks, tubes I have only tried the mullard pres.
    And ruby power, that is as far as I have gone, and congratulations on your new amp...
    Cheers Mitch

    Thanks Mitch! Your input on this forum has been really helpful. Yeah, I like the greenbacks as well and I’m definitely considering them. But I thought that if I’m going to couple with a vintage 30, the 12H might be better suited as they are maybe similar sounding to the 12M (could be wrong about that), and at the same time their sensitivity rating is the same as the vintage 30 at 100db. The last thing I want is to have a lovely Greenback speaker that just gets overwhelmed by the v30. If I change my mind about mixing speakers though I’ll defo go with two greenbacks.

    The Harma Retros are supposed to be modelled on Mullards actually and they’re cheaper/easier to get a hold of, but I don’t know how well they compare. Was hoping someone had tried them. Do you prefer your stock origin, or the one you changed the tubes in?

    To be honest they are both sounding really good, the only thing different is in one I have changed the tubes in, has the 2 greenbacks in, the other’s cab has a pair of emminance golds in it and the 2 different clips of them,
    I have the mosfet running with the white greenback loaded cab.
    I will repost the 2 clips so you don’t have to go looking for them.
    Cheers

    This is the stock tubes and emmenance golds, also using the SD1, but the SG instead of the LP.
    Cheers Mitch

    Cheers
