Here we go with our 3rd version of a Marshall® Mode 4 Cab (now a slanted version) – now crossloaded with 2 WGS® Reaper HP50 and 2 WGS® Veteran30 speakers.
The result is an extremely versatile cab pack with sheer endless possible applications. The V2-Viper feels at home in almost any musical style. As the big mass and volume of the Mode4 cab adds a lot of fatness,
the WGS ®Reaper 50 HP (some kind of high-power, more modern G12-H30) and the WGS® Veteran30 (a great V30 style speaker, with the qualities of good 90s V30’s) really complement each other and let this
cab sound more open.
We also added 15 IR-mixes to this cab pack. Great guitarists like Chiara Carcano, Bernd Kiltz, Marcus Siepen and Roberto Spalla helped us with the selection of the IR-mixes and chose their personal faves.
And (as we did on most of our V2-cab packs in the meantime) we also added the cab pack with 1370 ms length, which is a great way to get “amp-in-the-room” feeling with your DAW plugins or the Fractal Audio® Axefx III, Mk 2.
Low resonance frequency: 114 Hz.
The following microphones have been used and abused for the creation of the V2-Viper:
