I'm moving into a new house with my best friend who is also a producer and we want to accumulate a nice collection of amps and cabs to record guitars. I have a pretty good idea of what amps I wanna use, but I don't know much about speakers. I have 3 cabs and a few combos. Basically what I already have is:
2x12 w/ V30's
2x12 w/ Greenbacks
2x12 w/ Creamback and G12H30
2x12 combo with Fender speakers.
Are there any more I would want? We just want to have a wide variety of options so artists (including us) can create whatever tone we hear in our head.

The possibilities are endless here! I've longed to accumulate an arsenal of ideal speaker cabs for myself, but it's difficult to force since some speakers just work better with certain amps (and there's only so many cabs I really need sitting around). That being said, I think the following speakers in the following formats would be great--sounds like you might have a couple of these bases covered, too:
1x12 or 2x12 Blue 1x12 Gold 4x12 closed-back classic Greenback cab (and maybe a 2nd one with V30's or V30/G12H30 mix) 2x12 OR 4x12 with V30's or V30/G12H30 mix 2x12 classic/standard C12N-type Jensens 2x12 JBL's would be awesome (and heavy!) Couple of 1x15 cabs (one open-back guitar, and another one closed/ported for bass) Some sort of smaller 8"/10"/12" tweed low-watt amp & AlNiCo speaker
I mean, since it's a studio and you don't have to move 'em long distances, I figure the real-deal 4x12's & such would be best sonically. But of course, space might be an issue, so there's that. Plus you already have a couple 2x12's, I figure you might just use those as-is.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
