    Today's Sunday speaker demonstration on my channel is the V30.

    It is a Mesa V30.



    Next week I demonstrate the G12H Anniversary Edition.

    Nice job!

    V30 is my favorite speaker and I play mostly clean to slight breakup. Always works great in a full band.

    I've always liked the Vintage 30 speaker, and most often used it in Fender amps like a Deluxe Reverb, or in a semi open back 1-12 cabinet.
    It seems like a lot of people don't like them but I think the V30 sounds good clean and with gain.
    It may depend on the style(s) of music you play, amps, guitars, pickups etc..

    My Mesa Maverick came with a pair of V30s. I replaced one of them with a G12H and like the combination a lot (took a little edge off). Looking forward to the G12H demo

    My fav next to JBL D120. And really, the best with a Strat/Fender Amp, IMO.

    One of the best all rounders out there IMO. There's a good reason why celestion have sold a ton of them.
