xx Warehouse Guitar Speakers
« Thread started on: Feb 20th, 2011, 5:57pm »

grin Just wanted to throw the plug out for Warehouse Guitar Speakers...about two weeks or so ago I received a quad of their ET-65's, which is their version of the Celestion G12-65. I loaded these in a 412 and the results are nothing short of amazing, and they aren't even broken in yet. Only about 20 hours on them. I've always been a V30 fan, and am gonna load a 212 with those, but I like these new speakers even more. Jim will be happy I found another speaker I like more than V30's!! I didn't realize what I was missing. I've had Celestion G12H30's before, and sold those because I couldn't bond with them. I'm really glad I found these, they are basically a high power version of Greenbacks, but sound better than Greenbacks to me. 65 watts each. If you are searching for a speaker, check Warehouse out. JLB, you should check this company out for Blues City Music.....I like these speakers that much to recommend them. Now time to go back to playing. cool

If you like the Vintage 30 and you also like the ET65 then the ET65 must have plenty of mids then?

I've been researching WGS on their website and at harmonycentral. It seems that people who love all models of their speakers... ET65, Veteran 30, Retro 30 (V30 clone), Reaper, etc...

WGS says that the Veteran 30 + ET65 combo is the optimal setup they recommend, but a couple people at HC dont like how the Veteran 30 has less treble/presence than the Vintage 30- I know I would be one of those people, which is why I am considering their V30 clone that has more treble than the Veteran 30, the Retro 30.

I want a warm lead tone and I also like a good amount of presence and sparkle in my distorted chords (Queensryche, Rush).

The high upper mid harshness of the Vintage 30 drives me crazy and has got to go, but at the same time, I wish the Vintage 30 had more presence- that's why I have it mixed with a greenback.

A present, aggressive, crunch sound without V30 harshness and also a warm lead tone... Can it be done?!

*I'm trying to decide if I should order a pair of Retro 30s or mix a Retro 30 and ET65. Is the ET65 a pretty warm speaker for leads, but still capable of a nice present defined crunch on chords?

It's awesome all by itself, huh? What kind of music and bands do you play?

thanks!

I helped Warehouse Guitar Speakers with the development of the 100 watt Black Hawk as an OEM speaker for the Soldano 44 BCM combo. Originally, they sent me the 50 watt version but the Jensen Black Bird ate it up. I then sold them a Black Bird, they took it apart, redid their own Black Hawk, and Oolah, out came the 100 watt version.

For the Hermit ATA 2x12" ISO cab I have for my SLO, I run a Black Hawk and a high powered Reaper.

Yea, great speakers for sure and good guys to deal with.

I play rock, blues, and hard rock. Blues almost exclusively when practicing, rock and hard rock when with the band. Mostly originals, covers range from Social Distortion and Against Me to Foo Fighters to Tool, among others. The ET-65's are truly awesome speakers, rich in mids and lows and smooth top but clear top end.

I know this is an old thread but I've been curious about Warehouse speakers lately. They are priced just right! The ET-65's sound like a good choice with the SLO! I like punchy tones with bite but without the AM radio midrangey crud!!!

I like a speaker that stays together when cranked up!

^^^In that case some EVM12L's will hold together best under hard driven tones.
Guaranteed to wake that Soldano up cranked. grin

I am so lazy. They are still in the box after a few months! I am pretty happy with the Scumback M/H mix and haven't been to bothered about changing them out.... undecided
