Welcome to the show! Now there was a time when the Electro-Voice EVM12L speaker was the Undisputed King Of Drivers. Some argue that it still is, but for the most part the dear old EV has taken something of a popularity battering since its 1980s heyday.
Nevertheless, I’ve become marginally obsessed with chasing some Dumble-type tones of late – Mick here, hello – and that has led me down a path of acquiring an EV or three. I really //really// like ’em. And then, during a chance happening with Andy Timmons just recently, Dan and I were served up stark sonic reminder that these can be great on the end of all kinds of amps. Watch that show here https://youtu.be/CMdG-WjTtgk
All of which got us to thinking… What about some amps that you wouldn’t normally associate with the hallowed 200-watt behemoth loudspeaker? Could it ever sound good with the Princeton or an AC15, for example? Let’s find out…

Enjoy the show!
