Hi, enjoying my Dizzy 30. currently running it into 2 1x12 cabs with vintage 30's. As ever, always looking for the perfect tone I was wondering if anyone had ever tried a cab with Celestion Alnico golds?
The blues I guess would be nice but at only 15 watt rating it would mean I would have to use both cabs all the time rather than for some gigs traveling light with 1 cab.

I know the G12 H and the V30's seem to be the way to go but was just looking for a different slant.
I play the amp on the 12 AX7 channel exclusively with the vol on 2.30 and no master engaged, treble around 1.00 and bass around 11.00.  I play a tele and use no effects. The amp is breaking up with the guitar vol on full but cleans up real easy when backed off. My tone is close to Robert Cray's.

Thanks.

I run my DC-30 with a 1x12" containing a 65 watt Sumnico and it sounds great. I've also tried the amp with a gold and I preferred the Scumnico as it Was less 'brittle' in the top end while having all the other good atributes of the gold and higher power handling.

it sounds nice with a gold or a fane axa
better with a real matchless mismatched pair though

Mine is in a large 2x12 combo with a G12H and a Celestion Blue and it sounds nice. i think it is all personal preference and the sounds you are trying to achieve though.

I actually just swapped out my alnico for a WGS Veteran 30 after 5 years, and I really love it. Alnico is smooth and creamy, but I actually prefer the bark and growl of the higher wattage ceramics. Actually had me coming back to gigging with this amp recently, after having my Liverpool as my main amp for the last few years. Turns out the Alnico was actually limiting the aggressive nature I was going for.

OK, my blue is back in! Just love the nature of that alnico on the edge of breakup. I use my liverpool with ceramics for the aggressive stuff in my 2 amp setup. The producer just couldn't get enough of that DC30 with the alnico Blue in the studio for Rhythm stuff on the Strat.
