As you may have seen in my other post, I’ve got a used 2x10 CG on layaway. I’m considering making it into a head and using the existing cab for the speakers. Pros and cons of this set up? I’ve only ever played through 1 head and it was a Remedy. Wasn’t my guitar or cab and I didn’t have much time with it. Obviously, if I had a cab to leave at church (which is where I would normally use it) and 1 for elsewhere, ther would be less weight to move. Any other pros or cons?
At the risk of offering too-little, too-late, I submit a couple of thoughts, first: a 2x10-convertible cab will be more versatile than a 2x10-speaker cab—jerry-rigged from a combo amp.
Second: the latest generation of Ghia heads (as well as combo amps), are also more versatile, with 4, 8 and 16-ohm speaker connections. Earlier models have only 4 and 8-ohm taps.
I agree with purpletele’s suggestion to contact Peter Mather at Mather Amp Cabinets in your 1st post—Best of luck in your quest for practical, and convenient sonic nirvana.

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.

Joey Beverages: hayesgary307 try a Z 210 or Z 410 with Galaxie ... also, yes the G1265 is most tasty and excellent

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!
