Celestian Creambacks

Post by Riff Blister » Thu Feb 08, 2018 12:21 pm

Has anyone tried the Creamback speakers with their Stiletto? I'm curious to hear how they worked out compared to the V30s that come stock in Mesa cabinets.

I have Scumbacks in my 2 x 12 Recto cab that I really love but I still have a 2 x 12 Stiletto cab that has the original V30s. I'm debating swapping them out for some more Scumbacks or trying the Creambacks. I bet they would a good match for this amp.

Hey Riff, how do you like the bias mod? Does it really make that much of a difference?

I'm very happy with the bias mod. I think it fattened things up and took some of the edge off of the top end. I will say though, the stock Stiletto always worked well for me in a cranked up two guitar rock band setting.
Right now I'm set up with the mod, Scumback speakers and 6CA7 power tubes. I'm right where I want to be. I absolutely love playing this rig!
