    Hi Guys,

    I have a question about Kerry King's (Slayer) Marshall Cabinets.

    Which ones are the closest to his 4x12" Cabinets ?

    Thanks for reply :headbanger:,

    There is a small blurb on the Celestion 'Hot 100' (G12T-100) that seems to say that this is Kerry King's preferred speaker.

    From the 12" guitar speaker page:
    "With a massive 100-watt power handling, Hot 100 delivers a modern sound with big bass presence for players like Slayer's Kerry King."
    But once the link is clicked there is no more mention of Kerry King!
    https://celestion.com/category/4/Guitar/size/25/12"Diameter/
    Sounds like a mistake?

    Then, if you Google "Kerry King Celestion" you get countless hits for the G12K-100.
    Including this from Celestion themselves: https://celestion.com/partners/k-l/2/
    So G12K-100's and V30's apparently! (make your minds up Celestion!)

    Here's another take on his rig: https://www.softube.com/kerry-king-signature

    Correct, they only made the Mode 4 head and cabs for a few years. It was their flagship top of the line amp, very high quality, but people were turned off by the idea of a solid state output section.

    The cabs are as good or better than any cabs they've ever made. But because the Mode 4 wasn't a big sales success most people are unaware of how great the cabs are, so you can find really great deals on the used market.

    Regarding speakers, the most consistent info I could find was that he uses a V30/G12K-100 mix.

    What did I do? Replaced two V30’s in my Orange PPC 412 with two G12K-100’s in an X pattern. Love it!

    Sounds great with my 2203KK. (lol, I know, insert fanboy jokes here).

    What can I say? I love Fucklng Slayer!!

    I thought about buying some G12K-100 to pair with V30s also because my 2203KK. But I couldn´t find them available here and I modded mine a little and it´s sound fucking huge with V30 plus Century Vintage.

    Keep in mind... just to add to the confusion, the V30s in the mode 4 cabs ( MF280) are “different” than other V30s... i read once upon a time they were built with a 55hz cone, not a 75 like the V30s are. They tend to be darker ( like the 55hz blackbacks) than the “regular” V30s... once upon a time avatar/hellatone had a bunch of them ( 15 years ago or so?) and sold them as the hellatone 60L, not thr hellatone 60 that is sold today. Not sure where to get these but these cabs were phenomenal, I always am trying to find one personally, biggest sleeper cabs on the planet.
