I'm new on this forum, and I'm considering about buying a CR120.

Initially, I wanted an OR15. I tried one in a guitar shop, and the sound was awesome. But, I'm playing doom (with some black metal influences) in a band, and loud, and I think it will be hard to be hearded on reharsal (my drummer plays pretty loud too). I saw some videos on YouTube, but not much uses low tunings (I mean B or drop A).

I really love massive sounds, like Conan, Ufomammut, Cough or Monarch!
First, do you think I'll get satisfyed with this amp ? (I know it won't sound like à Matamp GT120...)

Then, is it possible, for CR120 owners, to post some massive sounds on low tunings with that amp ?

Thank you very much !



I have been running the dirty channel of a CR120 into a Sunn beta lead's loop A and a Submarine fuzz into loop B into a stock Peavey Penta cab. With my P90 SG the sound is FUCKING HEAVY clear and amazingly accurate. Because the Beta has two effects loops there is no faze problems either. so far all my tube amps have been collecting dust since I put together this monster.

Today I installed two speakers I had laying around into a 2X10 Seismic (particle board, though tough) cab. It looks like something folks would put in the back of their truck to blast bassy rap songs. Anyway, I installed an old 16ohm jet city (Eminence) speaker and a 16ohm Jensen Electric Lightning speaker into the cab. To test it, i.e. make sure the wiring was a-ok, I dusted off my Quileter 101. Previously, I noted (somewhere) that it didn't take pedals well, distortion pedals at least. And I thought it wouldn't take pedals well when I plugged in my sg special and hardwire sc-2 but I was super impressed. I'm thinking that the Quilter "likes" the Jensen e.l./jet city combo quite a bit because everything was smooth (in a metal sense). The hi-cut on the quilter is your friend and hit kills any nasty transistor highs that may creep in. And "despite" being only 50 watts (at least on the non-surf/jazz channels) it is super loud. My faith in the Quilter brand has really been renewed!

Hey guys!

What do you think about the Peavey Centurion mk III for punishing riffs ? (One's in sale nearby for cheap)

(BTW, I canceled my order for the CR120H, because I bought a 5150 ^^ still, I'll probably buy this amp later as a backup)

Thanks for your answers!

I'm okay with Gallien-Krueger RB heads but that's about it.
