Put 2 of the v30's and 2 of the 75's in er in a x pattern and try it out. Interesting what you say about front and rear loading. Lever upwards only, so the indents are well under the rim of the speaker and hidden.

Same thing for brightness, I think the guitar should produce the bite. So V30s might have looked like the only option. You drop your mids pickups and then add mids speakers.
It has the medium-sized magnet. A while ago when I was trying to figure out which speaker route to go, I couldn't find many accurate recordings to judge. The only problem is to find the right Celestion without spending more than I can get for a second hand V30. In the future I want to replace the 75's in my 4x12 with some creambacks. I like then both and they have their purposes.
I have a recto 2x12 with vin 30's now and I find them a bit bright for my liking. I know if I have a 1960 cab loaded with them I know what to expect. I do find that any complaints I have with the V30's disappear as soon as I play them in a live setting. Eminence now makes a more exact clone as part of the Redcoat series. I had a Z Best cab with that combo, and it sounded amazing. The highs are softer as well.
That Cornford just threw gobs of upper mids at you with very little bass. If you like a bit chime to your cleans, or if you like single coils, you might like the V30. V30 sound better with darker amps and neutral guitars as they add too much of that hi mid snarl for my ears. Less mids and chimy high's. Better lows, the hi-mids are more balanced, and the treble is sparkly just like it oughta be.
First you have to remove the four screws easy and take the corner protectors off easy , and then you have to try to get the grille out, without damaging either it or the cabinet. As far as the Cannabis Rex goes, I prefer it much better in a 1x12 combo than in a 4x12 configuration, I have some 75s in a 1960 cab. Its not been fully broken in I don't think had them fitted last April but haven't played many gigs with it as alot of the gigs we've played has been cab share. First, getting the grille out is so difficult that I almost began to suspect it was glued in. Well after reading this thread last night I had the bright idea to swap out the V30 in the shop's Cornford Harlequin and see if I could make it sound better and maybe help sell it. It seems that combining the V30 with other speakers, particularly the G12H30, really works great. I had 2 V30s and 2 75s in my Marhsall 1960a and loved it.
That can be a bit disconcerting to the unintiated. I also have the g12h as well. If it were me, I'd take the V30, but then I like midrange. The only way to tell if your amp is as loud as it should be is to compare it to another identical amp. I do notice a brighter tone and better cut in the mix, both compliment each other well. I own the V30 and G12t-75.
I really like them and think they are very decent speakers. I never found it hard to dial in a brighter tone on a Marshall. First you have to remove the four screws easy and take the corner protectors off easy , and then you have to try to get the grille out, without damaging either it or the cabinet. However, the sharp edge of a head transistors sometimes a good combination with. What a total pain in the arse! The 75's were thinner and brighter than the V30's. Depending on the cab they have a deep bottom end. I imagine so much depends on what you play musically, instrument, pups and touch.
I'm in the market for a 2x12 cabinet and I'm deciding between a Mesa or the Marshall 1936. I think I sort of dodged a bullet with that one. Will I notice a huge difference if I were to play them side by side? They suit midrangy amps like marshall's. It still has a great low end sound, but I think I'm going to swap out 2 of the V30s for 75s in this cabinet. It is one of my favorite speakers. It may be an impedance issue: make sure your amp's ohmage out is the same ohmage as the cabinet.
I had 2 V30s and 2 75s in my Marhsall 1960a and loved it. Their eq voicing was designed around the V30. The highs were also a bit too harsh for me. I have no idea why they've become the 'one size fits all' premium speaker, they're really not the best choice for that at all. I'll admit they don't have the cut that vintage 30s do but its pretty hard to get lost in the mix when you're running a super lead so it wasn't much of an issue.
