Hey Joolz,
I have both v30 and greenback cabs and to me the V30s sound a little harsh. I prefer the "warmness" of the greenback, although the bottom end & sharpness isn't as good as good as the V30s.
Did you hear my comparrison clip between the greenbacks & v30s - gives an idea of the different sounds available.

greenback to the left, V30 to the right

hope this helps!

hey hair!! waz up.......yeah the green back is the bizz bro....i'm just kindda worried bout running 1 greenback as they are 25watt...the astroverb is roughly 20watts but i'm sure its pushing more.....
ive never been good at buying higher wattage speakers......wish i could cart a 2x12 geenback cab but there is no more room in our travel mobile @ the moment! hahahaha! we are packed tight w/ PA and drums...we all use small rigs and mic up......

I would have thought the greenback could handle it, afterall they usually handle 100w marshalls - I suppose it depends if you are going to crank the amp or not. The G12-H30 speakers seem to be getting good reviews on HC at the moment - bit like the V30 but without the harshness? It's a shame there isn't a shop where you can just test out all of these speakers in one visit!

www.celestion.com has some kind of tone library where you can get an idea of the differences between various speakers.

As for the mesa cab, I suppose for the $ you can't go wrong. I tried a 2x12 and it was nice, but cost a lot in the UK
