    If you like open and bright, you may want to also consider the Eminence Manowar, they are exactly that.

    ...also the WGS Veterans are a lot like the V30 but different enough to stand out, I really like their tonal shape.



    I don't have much experience with creambacks, but I remember thinking they were just ok. I dislike greenbacks because they do not chug well at all.

      Creamback H's are the same way with H30's.

      IME, neither Creamback H's or H30's for that matter have a ton of low-end.
      If I want smooth, slightly darker and creamy, i usually take G12-65. Do you happen to know how this one differs from a creamback?

        I can only speak for the 10” Creamback, which I use in a closed-back cab with an Orange OR15. It provides a nice amount of “sizzle” that a 10” Greenback would normally need to be cranked up a bit in order to achieve. The Creamback sounds good at all volumes.

          They're sort of similar in that they're both supposed to be higher-powered greenbacks to an extent.

          The Creamback is slightly more raunchy. More Greenback-like, IMO. Squishier and rounder with a hint of the usual Celestion grittiness.

          The G12-65 is a bit more hollow. Slightly less mid-focused. Still vintage-y, but just a nudge towards the T-75 voicing without going to such extremes, IMO.

            I have a 120W Manowar in a Marshall JCM 1x12

            It's definitely bright and dimensional

              I've been thinking about changing out one if not both of the v30s in my Orange 2x12 so I've been watching a bunch of speaker comparisons. The M and H Creambacks sound pretty different. I think I like the extended range of the G12H-75s:

                thats, in some ways, similar to the g12m and g12h. the m has beautiful upper mids but the h is more full frequency.

                  Swap one of the Vintage 30's for a 12T-75.
