Cab - Straight or Angle?

The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

Got a straight cab...wish it were slant. Could buy an extra slant one, but then I'd have a full 7' Peavey 5150II stack. Organs in my body would die instantaneously&simultaneously. :twisted:

Karwei:we're talkin about the two differnt versions of a (normally)4x12 cab.You can have a straight cab,which means that all the speakers are vertical to the ground.In a slant cab the two upper speakers are a bit angled so the sound coming out of them unfolds in a more funnnel-shaped way.Playing a straight cab the sound unfolds in a more cylindrical way.
I personally like the angled cabs more,because I can hear myself better on stage,even if you're not too far away from the cab.

I like straight cabs. I know most people who own angled cabs mic the bottom speaker. Even so, I think the Straight cab has a better sound to them. Exspecialy for a recoding situation.
