    Dear diary,

    Yesterday at night I've tested my new EVH speakers with the 5150III and holy shit! It sounded amazing. I might have found my new favorite speakers. Today I want to test it with the engl and the major.

    Dear diary,

    Today I´ve tested this speakers really quick. First with the ENGL Savage 60 and sounded really good, after I was testing with the Major and it was amazing. but my lovely wife entered my man cave screaming with me and I still don´t know why.

    Dear diary, as I have too much free time these days I have changed one of the EVH celestions for a V30.

    My first impressions is these two can get along really well, but I´ll be sure tomorrow when I´ll be able to try it in ¨masculine volumes¨.

    I use the G12EVH 20 watt with a V30, both new in 2018, i bought a pair of each.

    For rehearsal I load one of each into the top of a 1960B, rewired horizontally, and leave the stock G12T-75's off.

    For Gigs I reloaded a Budda 212 with the same.

    I really like the mix almost 2 years now! It totally smokes at gig volume.... oh and I power with an EVH 5150III 6L6 50 watt 4CM with a Fractal Audio FM3.

    They are putting these in the revamped EVH combos from a few years ago because the EVH M series can't handle the wattage.\

    And yes, the V30/H30 has always been a good combo, so should be same same with these EVH H series.

    the crazy part is, the 2203k sounded great with V30/Neo Century Vintage combo... and I left this way. but I kept the EVH/V30 in the other 2x12, because it's amazing.
