    I'm about to pull the trigger and order the Origin 20 head and an Egnater Vengeance 412 cabinet that is on sale at Sweetwater for $300, but I though I'd check here and see what anyone might think of the cab.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks...

    Yep. Saw this on TGP. Shows the settings used. Best one I've seen to date.

    Here's one from Guitar Bonedo.... Short, precise and no talking.

    My first impression when I was able to play on at GC... it is more closely related to a JTM50 than a 1968 Plexi, hence it has less gain than the Plexi.. The Origin didn't have the "bark" or the "cadence" of a Plexi... The speaker that was connected to it (MX412), made the amp a tad too bright... I think it would sound better with a Greenies or a G12T75

    With my Origin 50H, I am running the master on three quarters, my gain around half, tilt just past noon (no matter what power selection) through a 4x12 with Vitage 30s and WGS ET65s, and it sound INCREDIBLE! Then I hit it with an EHX green russian muff and it sound GLORIOUS!!!!

    I think he is using several distortion FX in front, and a touch of reverb too.

    No pedals.

    "The amp is on the low power mode here, the boost engaged. Settings: Gain - 10 Bass - 5 Middle - 5 Treble - 6 Master - 6 Presence - 4 Recorded with 1 ART AR5 Ribbon mic. Some reverb added in post."

    Well that's 2 origin 20w combo's that to me sounded the best out of all of them. I'm starting to think a big part of it is driving the shit out of the 10in speaker?

    I just bought that cab for my B-day! Frigging awesome! I feel like I stole it. It sounds so good with all of my amps. This is my first proper 412 cab and I couldn't be happier. Just as good as the 1960! You won't be disappointed! :hbang:

    Yep!

    Got it yesterday and it sounds sweet and awesome. Can't wait for my O50h to arrive (that's right, all, I switched my order from the 20 to the 50 yesterday after hearing what comes out of this Egnater 412!!) :jam:
