Had a little GTG this am with local TBer Kringle77 to sample some cabs and have beer after breakfast. The cabs: GB Neox 212, LDS 15/5 spec'd by Kringle (both behind him in the crappy cell phone pic of Chris in my cave), GB Shuttle 2 112 and 210, LDS 15/6 (my baby) and Kringle's "Hurtful" 212. The beers (for completeness, since this is all about science and rigorous technique and documentation): a bunch of Quebec micros: Belle Geule Blonde, St. Ambroise Scotch Ale, Le Castor (the beaver) IPA and regular Ale, Sleeman Cream Ale (OK so the last one isn't "micro"or QC). We each have an SMax 9.2 and wanted to hear the cabs with our preferred settings, which are drastically different. Chris has some upper mid push, a little compression and adds a rackmount Sparkledrive. I used the FET channel with a push at 200 Hz, a little nudge in the lows as well, with no FX or comp. Chris plays a Stambaugh Attitude clone and I play an Elrick Classic 5. Not surprisingly: The LDS 15/6 has a low end booty unmatched by the others, no sparkle (no tweet) and mids as strong as you wanna add via eq. I am addicted to its' low end muscle, but Chris neither uses nor wants it. The Hurtful 212 had the most muscular mids to my ear, decent lows and was very loud for its' small size. The GB Shuttle cabs are very efficient, go a little lower than the Hurtful but don't hit quite as hard in the mids. The LDS 15/5 is tuned higher and is very mid-focused. It didn't get as big down low as the Shuttles. The Neox 212 was the most balanced to my ear. Lower and warmer than the hurtful but still with major punch in the mids, without the vast bottom of the 15/6. After a couple of hours, Chris bought the Neox off me. The 15/6 remains my favorite cab ever. The beer was great.......with the Castor IPA the consensus champion.
