    Just playing my Lead 12 through a 1x12 cab and loving it. Wondering if there is a combo to look for that kicks ass like this with 12". Please, nothing expensive:naughty:
    Its pretty much my favorite home amp today.

    Oh, hell yes! That 5010 is what I'm after, any experience? Looks like it has a G12-70.

    5275 or 75 Reverb. Multiple combinations of gain and 150W Celestion Sidewinder came stock. Plugged into external cab, it roars. Only problem is the SS hissing noise is amplified too. Sold mine to make room for a 2266.

    Wheels are a turnin now, im thinking better 10" for the lead 12 and putting this 12" into a 5010 for a grab and jam. That is, when a 5010 pops up, but I'm on the hunt. Off to CL....

    Lead 12 through a 4x12 cab sounds great

    I have the 5210 and it rips. Paid $150 for it at a pawn shop. Keep looking and you'll find a good deal on any of these listed.

    Yep any one of them. If you dig the lead 12 you'll like any of the others.

    Bad, bad thread for someone who owns lots of Lead 100s. Lol

    So, 5010 or 5210?

    I kind of want one of these combos to stack on a 2x12 cab loaded with either EVM12Ls, G12T75s, or Creambacks. All my favorites.

    I passed on a lead 20 a few weeks before I got my lead 12. Kicking myself now, wish I had both.

    looking at a 5275 at the moment.

    awesome amps.

    Make sure the ohms match.

    I'm thinking some of those higher wattage MG series may do the trick.

    Yes, but actually not quite as big a deal with a solid state amp. But kinda a moot point, the Lead 12 has no speaker out, so if a person is competent enough to add an output, they (or their tech) would probably know enough to ask about the other cab it was intending that the output was going to be paired with.

    But with a solid state you're probably OK so long as the cab is not lower ohms than the amp, though of course an exact match is preferable. The speaker out on my 75 Reverb, for example, is marked "8-16 ohm only." So a "same or higher" is OK.
