    This is just a curiosity thread. Has anyone played through a detuned cab? like a Vintone or Mad sound? They're supposed to be sooo much better...

    I dont think it's something you can do to cab it how it's built. checkout About Vintone Circuits

    Sound sinteresting. I'm all for a more organic midrange (at the end of the day it is the most important part of your guitar sound) but more treble leaves me worried with a 6505 :lol:

    WOuldn't pay the daft prices they are no doubt asking for them though. :lol:

    they look so interesting. Seems to be like an improved Genz-Benz G-Flex cab..

    My Avatar 4x12 is detuned to two V30s on the top two slots.
    It sounds a bit more open and fills the room better in my opinion. Definitely try it out if you're looking to experiment. Make sure you wire everything correctly and use the correct ohmage and wattage matching!
