    I used to have the 50 watt head, ended up selling it and buying the POD HD/TS100 setup I have now.

    Which I do, and don't regret. The POD Sounds great, and has loads of nice effects. Plus, it can sound great at low volume without compromise.
    I do miss it, but the shared EQ on ch 1&2 was enough to bug me.
    I do plan to eventually ditch my TS100, and buy the 100 watt head/use the POD just for effects.
    But I have a couple $3k guitars I want to get before I get around to that.

    You can never have to much backup. Ask a marine. And my OCD won't let me run a stereo rig without matching brands. :nuts:

    Really have been wanting to switch over to the EVH cabs from my Vaders. How to they compare to say, a Marshall 1960 cab?

    Here is a quick video I made of my 100 watt through an Orange 412. Just a nice metal rhythm tone, sorry I'm not playing some more exciting but you'll get the idea at least.

    I'm playing my EBMM JP6 (w/Crunch Lab) in Drop C with D'addario 11-56 EXL117 strings. Third (red) channel and boosted with a TS808 upfront.

    I own a 1960B and EVH412.

    The 1960 has more bass but I much prefer the EVH cab as it is much more crunchy and just has a nicer tone IMO. It depends how loud you play though, it isn't a high wattage cab so if you play super loud or want a bassy sound at very high volume I don't think it is a good choice.

    If you're usually miced up so don't need to push the amp too hard I'd pick the EVH over a 1960 with T75s. It cuts nicely and has a more interesting tone. I don't dislike T75s, but they're fairly bland compared to other Celestions, and depending on your amp they can sound a bit thinner in a mix with the way their mids are. The EVH cab is also much higher quality than the Marshall cab IMO.

    I'd definitely recommend trying one before buying though, greenbacks sound very different to T75s and V30s. They work for some people but aren't for everyone.

    I finally got the balls to mod my 5150 III and it turned out sick!! I ordered some orange knobs to throw on it as well but I'm afraid it may be a little too much orange.

    I had that exact problem. It's not the footswitch, it's the footswitch cord. I grabbed a Mesa one, and it's been working flawlessly ever since (over a year).
