The slant and slant/straight cab should sound more or less the same.

If there's any difference it'll be more to do with the speakers (no two ever sound identical).

The nice thing about the slant/straights is that they have more room to fit an amp on them. I wish they still made them.
Ignore the hype and trust your ears. Play more, buy less = better tone.
