I like V30's and I was always wondered how the DSL40CR would sound with one. The V-Type is good for sure, but didn't quite cut it for me. I know alot guys like the Creamback 65's too. Well, I have a Marshall 1936 cab loaded with V30's, so I decided to take one out and try it in the combo. Don't know why I didn't think of this before. It's well broken in too. HOLY SMOKES!!!! What a difference! Much more alive! The V-Type sounded a bit bland/boxy to me. Again, not a bad speaker by any means. This amp smokes even more now! Wow!! Bite and grind oh yeah!!!!!! This is all me! I watched some videos on YouTube with comparisons and really none of them seemed to make that much difference. But with my rig and in person, it was a big difference to me.
