    Just wondering what other speakers you guys like under the mic. I know V30's are a favorite around here, but do you guys like other speakers for high-gain? Which? Do you have examples?

    :)

    K-100 is a really nice one, too.

    I love the Celestion Lynchback speaker - best aspects of a V30 and Greenback combined, with a less brittle upper mid and more low end than either but still tight.

    Here's a completely raw example of the Lynchback vs the V30, both in the same cab (I have a 4x12 with an X-pattern of the two), both mic'd with a 57 in near as darn the same place, into an SSL E-series. Blending them 50/50 sounds awesome.

    G12T-75, G12M-25, G12-65, G12K-100, all have their use depending on the slyle. I'd say T-75 are a bit harder to record than the rest, I tend to EQ them on the way in and I prefer K-100 blended with something else.
    Planning to get G12-H30 soon to complete my collection.

    I like G12H30's. The low end holds up a bit better than with Greenbacks.

    Greenbacks.I find that I can get useable tones from every position, from the dustcap to the edge of the cone.

    Greenbacks, K100's and H30's are all good.

    Nolly, both sound damn good.

    I agree about the T75 not being as mic-friendly as the other speakers. I can tell that from my Marshall cabinet.

    What about WGS's or Eminences? Anyone have good results with either?

    I have had some success for rather dark tones (doom/sludge/jazz cleans) with the Eminence Delta Pro. You can use that one for bass, too.
    Also the Jensen MOD12 can sound great if you mic it from a distance/with ribbons, they give a nice glassy cut.
    GASing for a Jensen Electric Lightning atm - looks like a really cool speaker.

    reneisgod also posted some clips that were recorded with Eminence Man-O-Wars.
    I think it was the main rhythm tone on the Cnoc an Tursa album. Pretty bright, but sounded awesome.

    greenbacks sound great on lots of things and take micing really easy. been used on countless records and a different sound to v30's. cant go wrong.

    Id love a D120F but getting hold of one for a reasonable price is another issue.

    V30/GK100 mix in my Emperor 4x12 sounds great. The Greenbacks I had in a Framus Cobra cab a while back were nice, but Splawn Small Blocks are much better IMO.

    As much as people seem to hate on the Eminence Legends, the ones in my 2x12 Soldano cab sound fucking mean under a mic...

    Greenbacks & K100s. Greenbacks the more consistent speaker IME, can throw a mic in front of any in my old 80s Marshall cab they all deliver. The k100 is the opposite, found 1 out of 4 usable. The other 3 were nasty, possessing that same t75 hollow odd phase quality. The 1 keeper is amazing though.
