Another plus with the OTR speaker, it sounds great with the TC-100. Still like the Vertical 212 cab though. But for a downsized 112 format the OTR sounds good with the TC-100. Not sure why I never tried it when I had the speaker in the cab the first time around. I did give the TC-100 a go at the EVM12L Black Label, that was missing something in the tone. OTR is much better. Even tried the EVM12L classic, seems to be the same speaker as the black label. I will have to try the combination of the EV and OTR with the TC-100. It sounds epic with the JP-2C. So tempting to pull the V30's out of the horizontal 212 cab and try the OTR + EV but I do not think the #8-32 studs will be long enough to get the nut onto the threads. That was the issue I had with the OS Recto 412 cab, could not get the nuts on the threads due to the thicker frame and lack of gasket compression.

So tempted to get one of the mini recto 112s and stuff this speaker into it. Not sure it will fit due to the side handles. If I do get one, I could always use the Redback as that is a direct drop in for the V30 speaker.

an update, unfortunately I have not had the time to do the EV - OTR comparison yet. I did get some video recorded but the project was overloaded since I was trying to make it comprehensive to include the MC90, EV black label, EV classic, Celestion Redback, and the OTR. I got sick and tired of trying to play the same or similar by the time I got to the OTR I had lost all interest on doing any work with the video content. I did not want to make a 2 hour video. I am not getting paid for this experiment so there was no incentive to continue.

However, I will be getting back into the swing of things with the EV classic and OTR speaker but will limit it to just the Mark V combo amp. I am at a toss up between the EV classic and the OTR. Both have some great sounds with a Mark series amp. Both speakers still need to be broken in but may just work on something in the near future as they are.
