    Well, I wasn't expecting them, and UPS seem to have misplaced the other one (which I should have come monday), but anyway, rather than waiting, here's one shot of the beast that thanks to help from Lozek, and waiting in UPS for 2 hours plus laughing at all the people getting aggitated and the comedy "must keep my sanity" remarks from the poor abused staff 9who I don't blame, just the people that run this poor excuse for a delivery company), see if you can guess what it is!

    [​IMG]

    Hmmmm, it's black, and I won't waste a million shots telling you what it is (and by now you know the other half isn't slanted) so here's one reveal! (Like extreme makeover without the minging tart that's been shoehorned into new teeth, a tit job and a dress for her dog ugly husband to, well, you can imagine...)

    [​IMG]

    but, the last shot will say all it needs to, and yes, I am a bit of a string pulling git to get it like this, but it's the only way I would have gotten them, so without further ado:

    [​IMG]

    It's a distinctly non orange Orange PPC412 Slant, with black grille cloth! Awesomeness! It had to be all black, and hence I am very pleased. A few people have wondered why the hell i have got Orange cabs in the first place (not exactly known for metal), but I am well pleased, and I'll have to tweak some settings, but it sounds great! Also, this is my first slant cab for about 10 or so years (maybe 12 possibly) so it's well exciting!

    I also quite like the sexy white pinstipes down the side, very cool. The non written Orange logo may have to go, but I may just gaffa tape that, as it is a bit odd on the black, but overall I am a pleased little monkey!

    Now for the other half to be picked up come monday!

    So congratulations to the people who easily guessed it was an orange cab, and no, I don't think you can buy these, as it was a custom order :fawk:

    :lol:, well, it wasn't too hard, and I have been itching for it, as it took a month+ from when i paid to actually get half of it :lol:

    Just waiting for some g12k-85's, and then I may turn one of them into a cab loaded with them if I find enough.

    :fawk:

    I am so awesome I have circumvented the one thing everyone has reservations about when buying orange, the lack of blackness.

    I am indeed a huge penis, albeit one with, so far, one all black Orange cab :D, oh, and the bottom bit on the way :lol:

    Well, only got back 30 mins ago, set it up, took pictures, shrunk em down, but so far I like. I am going to have to tweak the amp a bit, as I have been playing through blackbacks in the vintage marshall. First impressions is that it totally brings out the highs a lot more, rounder fuller bottom end (still tight) and is loud. Very loud.

    May have to wait till tomorrow to crank it slightly, but may just have to give it a quick whirl now!

    One thing though, is that because it's bright, it really sets of my pickups in the PWH which are microphonic, so I am going to have to fix them.

    I did try one out with a single rectifier before I pulled the trigger, and irt really amazed me how full and hifi they sound.

    Success :metal:

    The Pittbull UL with V30s and other speakers I've tried really aren't as flattering as VHT's own speakers, but it still sounds great I'm sure. :yesway:

    Just been playing, took a lot of highs out of the sound, it's killer, resisting the urge to crankl the living fuck out of it :D

    And yeah, it looks and feels so much more solid than anything else I have ever owned.

    Great Success!

    Normally I would agree with you, but there is something about the way Orange build their cabs that make them NOT sound like V30s.

    Damn, you can get them with a black grill cloth, bugger!! And it seems all of the new black cabs have those pinstripes? Mine didn't have those yet, so they seem to be a new thing.

    Congrats mate, looks awesome, and I know it sounds that way too. Have fun!
