    For those that have had some speaker rolling, does anyone have any experience with either the Vintage 30 or the Creamback 75h. I don't hate the v type, but I can't leave things alone......always want more.

    Either of those will rock.

    Me? I'd put a GB128 in it. Which is a greenback that sounds great. And the price? Sleeper...

    I jumped at this one cause I have this exact combo in my DSL40C. The 75 Creamback is my favorite speaker. The DSL40C sounds awesome with the 75, do it, you won't be disappointed!

    I still have that stock 70/80 in mine. I know...Just haven't got around to it.

    What did you like about the 75 compared to the stock speaker?

    I don't like The Creamback 65. Too smooth.

    Whatever you decide, put the V-Type in a 112 cab and run it under the 40CR.

    I guess I should clarify, most of my experience is between the 65 Creamback and the 75 Creamback. I changed out my stock speaker pretty much right away and that was a while ago so I can't really add or say much about it..

    The 65 for me was way too boomy bass wise where the 75 Creamback just seems to have a bit less mids and a more even EQ to my ear. I have a 212 Cab that used to have 65's in it and I ended up trading a guy for two 75's and won't be looking back. For my ear, the 75 is my favorite speaker. It also sounds really full and warm when played clean through a Marshall.

    Gotcha.

    If you ever get to try a GB128 do it. Really well balanced. Thanks for the imput. Appreciate it. Yeah I think the 65's are used in this amp to address peeps "it's too fizzy" comments.

    In my opinion the 75 Creamback sounds a lot like the G12T75. It pushes bass and treble.

    On the other end of the spectrum is the mid-heavy Greenback with its rolled off bass and treble.

    The 65 Creamback lands in the middle, sounding like a Greenback with more clarity and a bit more bottom end,
    or maybe it sounds like a T75 with more midrange. But the 75 Creamback is even closer to the T75. At least that's how I hear it.

    I can't decide if I like the Greenback or the 65 Creamback better. I really like them both in the same 4x12 at once.

    Just googled the GB128, I'll keep her in mind, thanks! So it's along the lines of a Greenback then? What do you find matches well with it amp wise?

    I know you are a discerning player. I love GB's. Get a chance try the Eminence GB128. Just so you know I use what sounds good. Whether Celestion or otherwise.

    Why I feel strongly about the GB128? Sound great with my Marshallz. Caveat is the price.

    Marshallz for sure. Great bottom, mids are musical and top end is not harsh...unless you tune the amp sharp!:D

    So one guitar I've got DiMarzio SD's and the other Fluence fish ActiveX classic core. Both rip with the Marshall's.

    The price to performance ratio is shocking...to me.

    If you happen on one let know what you think. I hate being wrong.:mad::D

    As SB said the GB128 is a great speaker. Plus you can get two for the price of one over a GB or CB. I’ve been trying them in Marshall toned amps and Carvin X100b amps and so far all is good. In my 2202 combo they work incredible, so glad I finally tried one.

    A little bit in the weeds here, but I tried the WGS Vet30 & ET65 in my 40C. I prefer the ET65 by quite a lot. I have the Vet30 in the 40CR right now, but I doubt it will stay. Its pretty harsh sounding. I will probably get a real Creamback eventually, but I've bought enough shit for a while.

    From my experience of adding a creamback 1z12 cab in addition to a V30 in a cornford Carrera my answer would be ‘both’. Added a very nice filling out of the overall sound in a good way, sounded a bit ‘hi-if’ at first, but allowed a lot of leeway with the tone controls.
