MC90 vs V30

Post by jargapix » Wed May 07, 2014 10:10 am

I currently have a MB DC5B combo

With this beast inside.

I've heard a lot about the V30s & was thinking of getting one to test out.

I play through 2 Epi Les Pauls, an Epi Explorer & an LTD KH-602. All humbuckers. I play rock, metal. I like my cleans but mostly want AC/DC crunch and Metallica MOP high gain. 2 guitars have burstbuckers with coil tapping so I can get some so cool cleaner, slightly overdriven tones as well.

Any thoughts on this? Has anyone done this before? Worth the effort of buying and possibly returning?

Thanks!

Will the V30 that is rated at 60 Watts be able to handle your amps power?

Instead have you considered adding a extension speaker cabinet like the Compact Thiele?

Try an Eminence Governor... in my DC5 it replaced my Vintage that replaced the factory's mc90...
The Governor sounds incredibly good, mixing the shades of a vintage 30 and the lead/modern sound of a mc90...
it's the perfect compromise imho.
I apologize for my simply english!
