The new full sized Avatar Vintage G112 guitar cab is a 60's Marshall styled 112 speaker cabinet. It features a slanted front speaker baffle board to point the speaker up slightly towards the player. The construction is voidless Birch Plywood with your choice of tolex, piping, and grill cloth and black strap handle.
It comes with your choice of either the partial open back or the completely closed back panel. This deluxe cab has a rear metal jack plate with dual 1/4 inch jacks for daisy chaining with other cabs. Switchcraft jacks and thick oxygen free internal speaker wire are standard.
The 12 inch speaker is rear loaded with T Nuts which makes it easy to swap out speakers for tone experimenting. Avatar has many choices of quality Celestion guitar speakers to fit your precise tone preferences. Their experience has been that some of the favorite speakers for this cabinet are the Industry Standard Celestion Vintage 30 at 60 watts for all around great tone.
The 30 watt G12H30 70th Year Anniversary special is also a favorite because it has a big rich warm low end, smooth mids with just a hint of grit when slightly overdriven and nice top end.
The Celestion G12T75 (used in many Marshall cabinets) has lots of crunch, big bass, scooped mids and sizzling highs at 75 watts.
The Celestion Greenback will give this cabinet early cone break up for classic warm low wattage tone at 25 watts.
For fantastic natural sounding high power clean tones, the 80 watt Celestion Classic Lead 80 is the Celestion that most faithfully reproduce your signal rather than to add any color or character to your tone. Great for modeling type amps or situations where you want neutral clean clear reproduction.
For the lower powered high end boutique tube amps, the Celestion Alnico BLUE has the most wonderful chime and creamy midrange in a 15 watt cab. A lot of guys that have small boutique amps really like the Celestion Blue or the G12H30.
The Hellatones are also great because the Hellatone 30 is a slightly broken in Celestion G12H30 and the Hellatone 60 is a slightly broken in Celestion Vintage 30.
With larger amps, the 50 watt Celestion Alnico Gold would be the ultimate speaker for this cab. It is voiced similarly to the 15 watt Alnico Blue with wonderful creamy chime tone but has a higher power capacity.
Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.
For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.
For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.
I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
