...without getting fired and without using an attenuator.
I have a small 112 cab thats about halfway between the size of a studio cab and a 112 Z convertible cab. Loaded with a 50w Alnico Weber Silver Bell. (I think this is the greatest speaker there ever could be for this amp by the way. Perfect in every imaginable way.)
-Using one 12 instead of 2 cuts the volume way way down and you can still get that wonderful hair. (Vol on 2 or slightly above with overdose turned on for example).
-The Silver Bell is a quiet speaker. I tried several speakers in this 112 setup including a 65 w Creamback, WGS Blackhawk, Vin 30, G12H30 and others. The Weber is way way less db. Huge noticable difference in volume. Its actually only a tiny tiny bit louder than my Ghia and Im.able to get the same slightly overdriven tone. Amazing side by side comparison.
Im also using an amp stand that sits really low to the ground and firing the amp up at me from the front like a floor monitor. I love this little stand because it allows me to have an angle where the sound of the amp is hitting me in the chest instead of the face. Much less bright. Even though it is cranked pretty good, due to the fact that it is facing me and with that quiet speaker it is not taking anyone's head off out front and I actually have it in the PA and have had no complaints.

I have the MV as well. I use a 2-12 with green backs. We played a REALLY small place last saturday, and I ran the MV way down. The nice thing about this amp is, I don't think it can sound bad, no matter what volume
Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!
