I recently got a Vox Mini Superbeetle Amp/Cab set up. A very nice little set up but the amp head is capable of more, when put through a larger cab, taking it from a practice to a gigging amp. When buying the Superbeetle, I tried the head through both Vox and Blackstar, 2X12 cabs and was impressed. So I decided today, to go check out a 2X12 cab, that was going for a bargain price, the Yamaha THRC212. This is a really well made cab, with both an Eminence Legend 1218 speaker (Left or top) and an Eminence The Tonker speaker (Right or lower). Although the cab is designed to stand horizontally, I have chosen to use it in a vertical position. And it's brown, front cloth matches reasonably well, with the Vox's diamond-brown cloth. Impedance wise too, this cab works very well with the Vox, as you have 2 separate inputs, one for each 8 ohm speaker. The Vox has 2 speaker outputs, that run in parallel and so the system is running in 4 ohms, which gives the amp it's maxinum (50 watt) output. There is a a single speaker input to run both speaker, but that is set up in series and therefore is 16 ohms. I have to say that the Vox Mini Superbeetle head and the Yamaha THRC212 cab sound great together. Really loud, if needed and very full, with the cab being rated at 300 watts and the head 50, all is handled very nicely. It's almost as if they were made for each other, which of course, they are not. The cab looks and sounds very good quality and is very solid, although not overly heavy at 24 Kg. The only problem is that the poor little 1X10 Superbeetle cab will not get much use because even at home, I prefer the 2X12.

walkingdecay: Explanation for last. Two fires over the local common, probably resulting from arson, have ensured that self-isolating neighbours have had to keep their windows closed in hot weather. Would also be a good song title, if anyone wants it.

walkingdecay: You have a point, Andrew. None of the online rhyming dictionaries can find a convincing rhyme.

walkingdecay: I'd cheat and modify it to "commonland."

davewhite: Move on almost rhymes with common

walkingdecay: True. One of the advantages for lyric writers is that the tune can cover bad rhymes anyway. Well, not "He made a vow while in state's prison/ Vowed it would be my life or his 'n'..." Tex Ritter couldn't see anything wrong with that.

robmc: I thought for a moment Tex Ritter was the name of a rhyming app, a play on Text Writer

walkingdecay: Ha! Tex would have loved the idea he could spiel in rhyming print as well. Ye gods, that man could talk - always entertainingly, mind, and he never seemed to repeat himself.

jangarrack: ...words that rhyme with common... If I remember rightly, the French policeman in 'Allo 'Allo! once asked for a slice of "lomon" for his gin and tonic. Just a thought

ocarolan: "I never thought it would happen With me and the girl from Clapham Out on the windy common That night I ain't forgotten…."... it did OK for Difford and Tillbrook.

walkingdecay: Finding a rhyme for that has been prodding the part of my subconscious that used to do the writing. I hoped that bear stewed was dead. Anyway, the best it's spewed up is, "Come on someone, kneel on down, be common on the common like a heat bound hound."
