    finally picked up a nice little 1x12 cab for my friedman runt. i couldve gone the friedman cab route but man... so pricey. even for just a 1x12 so i found this killer little mesa rectifier cab 2nd hand for about half the cost of a friedman cab. it has a v30 in it. not sure how it would compare to the creamback thats in the matching friedman cab but i'm happy with the tone i'm gettin right now. you really can't go wrong with a v30. i'd love to get a 2nd cab some day with a creamback and blend em. i bet that would sound lovely. pictured with the amp is my strandberg boden os6 trem with bare knuckle crawler pickups.

    Congrats! The dimensions line up just right!
    I just picked up a Runt 50 yesterday. How are you liking the high gain tones? I haven't had much time with it yet, but so far I find it ROARS with my Les Paul, but sounds a bit thin with my Ibanez RG (Tone Zone pups). Do you use any boosts?

    It definitely reacts differently to different pickups. I just bought a tc electronics mojomojo. Havent used it with the runt yet but its great at fattening up tones on my axe fx. Cheap and id definitely recommend it

    Those Recto 1x12's are fantastic and handy as hell.

    I know they popular with a few engineers that keep them permanently mic'd up in a closet for recording.
