Genz Benz G-Flex 2x12 opinions...a good cab choice?
Hello there. The last substantial guitar purchase I make before investing in a RGT3120 is a 2x12 cabinet. My friend has a Mesa 4x12 loaded with V-30s that I use right now, and I love the sound. However, a 4x12 is not what I need right now....my band doesnt play at crazy volumes, and I want a cabinet that is pretty easy to carry around. Hence my search for a 2x12 cabinet...
My main question is if you have extensivly tried or own a Genz Benz G-Flex 2x12 Cabinet, what do you think about it? I have heard many good things about it, but any more opinions on it would be great. Would you call it fairly versatile, or is it only good for certian sounds? I would be using it with a Marshall JCM2000 DSL50. I play everything from jazz, to mellow rock(current band sound), to balls to the wall metal and stuff like that....getting a great distorted tone is more important to me than landing a great clean tone though. I really love the V-30 sound....do the speakers in the Genz Benz share many of the same qualities as a V-30, or are they totally different?
Is there another 2x12 Cabinet that you would recommend before the G-Flex under $600 new (or a cabinet that might be more new but can be found used for under $600)?
