    A dude on Gearslutz posted this :


    Finnish magazine Riffi tested these following cabs:

    1. Bogner Oversized 2x12 | Celestion V30
    2. Bogner Ecstacy | Celestion V30 | New
    3. Bogner Uberschall | Celestion V30 | Used (Top Right Speaker)
    4. Bogner Uberschall | Celestion G12T-75 | Used (Top Left Speaker)
    5. Engl | Celestion V30 | New
    6. Framus Dragon | Celestion V30 | New
    7. Hughes&Kettner SC412 | Celestion Rockdriver | New
    8. Hughes&Kettner CC412 | 25 Celestion Greenback | Used
    9. Hiwatt | Fane | New
    10. Krank Revolution | Eminence V12 Legend | New
    11. Marshall 1960 | Celestion Greenback | New
    12. Marshall 1960 Lead | Celestion G12T-75 | New
    13. Marshall Handwired | Celestion Greenback | New
    14. Marshall 1960 Alakaappi | Celestion V30
    15. Mesaboogie Rectifier Standard | Celestion V30 | New
    16. VHT | Eminence P50E | New

    Download the samples:
    http://www.riffi.com/riffi065/Riffi_kaappitesti.zip

    Puhdas = Clean
    Särö = Distortion
    Alakaappi = Base Cabinet

    The amp they used was a Peavey JSX. All samples were reamped using these microphones and a Millenia mic pre:

    Shure SM57
    Sennheiser e609
    Shure SM81
    DPA 4006 (one meter from the cab)


    (they apparently confused the G12 and the V30 in the Bogner cabinet)

    Bogner did best on all sounds/mics imo. maybe a 2x12 isn't such a bad idea!!
    Krank and mesa was cool on most aswell, but krank staid behind when i came to cleans imo..

    But i dunno.. how good/reliable are these kinda tests right? ;)

    Yeah, I haven't listened to these, but I think there can't be a definitive best, just a "best for a given situation".

    someone needs to ask them, if we can get the pure preamp, for making impulses.
