    dont mean to switch subjects from the invective, but scored a beat up crate 4x12 cab from the early 90s for $40. replaced the switch and the input jacks and put 2 celestion 30s and 2 creamback-H in an x pattern...second cab i do this too hope it sounds ok

    October bummer
    If this delivers the tones like it should, it will be hard not to get in on this!

    Nice! I didn't order until June so there are people in front of me in line...you were obviously one of those people.

    With that said, I may or may not have one on the way from another source...

    With the knowledge that they are now available, I’m actually a bit surprised no one has chimed in to say they have one in hand yet. I’m sure we’ll have a few guys with them in the next few days.

    I was one of the first to order through Sweetwater also... They sent me a tracking # today. Should have the head by Wednesday.

    I think everyone that gets theirs should do a NAD without reading other NADs. That way we get unbiased review from a few members here :)

    Stupid idea?

    Ha. No, it’s a good idea but unlikely. :)

    Is anyone else kinda excited, or is it just me?

    wont get the invective in my hands till thursday, but the vintage 30 and creamback H combination gives you a tighter bottom end. also it still has those creamy upper mids because of the vintage 30s. Also it makes the lower mids and the bottom end more defined. I know it varies from amp to amp but its a match made in heaven with my ENGL Powerball 2. I scored an early 90s crate cab that is beat up but in one piece. i last week i also put that same speaker configuration into it , but havnt tested it yet. I will try to make a video with the incective a/b both cabs as soon as i can.

    Very cool. I had a custom cab built. It’s a 2x12 with V30 and creamback H. I had it built to look like/match my Mesa vertical 212, but this is wider to work with the Invective head. I also had it made to be as close to the same volume of airspace as the Peavey cab.

    I can echo your sentiments in your review. It’s an awesome cab. Been using it with my TC-50. When the Invective gets here the TC is going back to the stock Mesa 212. I may swap one of its speakers to a creamback as well.

    Have any of you played a V30/K100 combination and could compare it to the V30/Creamback H? I have the V30/K100 combo currently in my 4x12 but I've been curious about the Creambacks for a while. I'm not sure if I would switch it up anytime soon but if it's that much more worth it I may consider it in the future.

    No worries. I may just give it a shot down the road eventually. I'll do my research.
