    I'm going to get an Electric Amp cabinet to match my guitarists Orange gear.
    I normally go against the grain so a different color than Orange would be what I would do.
    Before the purists start...
    I am choosing Electric Amp over Orange and Matamp because it is in America and custom.
    The speaker configuration is the one I want, and not available in from Orange.

    It would be cool to have it Orange, but the plate would read "Electric" instead of Orange.
    A white cabinet would read "WHITE"
    and a black cabinet would read "BLACK" in the Orange style font.

    I will be doing the Lloyd grill, not black.

    I feel the Electric Amp Orange would be like having a badcat cab, no effense but it is just coming close but not being the real thing. White amp and Black amp would be a real white or a real black.

    My question is, what would you get?
  2. black amp is black
  3. seriously think about making a black amp that reads white or a white amp that reads black. eh? eh?

  7. It is amazing the problems we face these days...I don't know how you will ever figure this out!

    Good Luck!

    dont know why but i am a sucker for white, since its opposite of everything else in the metal scene which is what my band plays. i painted the grill of my cab white just to see what it looked like, havent painted back to black yet i like it so much.
    love the idea with the name thing, my singer and i wanted to change then name on one of guitar players orange cab to say green or some other color than orange. either way roll with what you like its your gear!

    Remember this fact - no band lasts forever.
    Don't base your choice on what matches your current guitarist's rig - make your choice based on your preference.

    If you want a custom build american made cab, there are much better options, at much better prices IMHO.

    I prefer Yellow Cab... If I'm tippsy anyway... Though I have a white sticker that reads RED on the black, rear window pillar of my white Subaru Outback. My rural Cascade take on irony...
  17. I voted Orange but I own an Orange rig.

    I would go for Green personally.

    not helping with color, but the guy that builds cabs for electric is a pal of mine. i have been in his shop a number of times, and his cabs are top quality and handmade one at a time. he can do modern designs too, but the "old" designs definitely dont suck, aesthetics notwithstanding. there is a 6x12 electric cab in his shop right now that is just ridiculous! super nice and just gorgeous.
