G12M speaker shootout video. Celestion, Scumback, ASW

Here is my G12M speaker shootout video:

The video explains the rig and approach. A few notes I didn't mention:

The amp was dialed in for each clip, IOW the settings were different for Pete's clips, Doug's clips and my own Les Paul and Strat clips.

All of the speakers had some level of break in, except the Heritage 20W. Those came right out of the box, and you can hear it. We did warm up each set of speakers for 20-30 minutes before hitting record though.

No processing was done on any clip. There are relative volume differences which may affect your perception of each speaker. But I prefer to keep them unprocessed. This also shows the relative sensitivity of the speakers. All were within a few dbs.

I have lots of footage left over and may make some audio only clips and possibly a shorter video that gets right down to the comparison.

Great vídeo George!

In my opinion, the original is awesome. Quite better than the others.
The regular reissue greenback sounds very good attending to the price. Great value!
In the other hand... The ASW... It's a little bit crappy...

Surprised at how much I liked the Scumback and didn't care for the ASW.
