I bought them for my v30 cab which is currently at our rehearsal space, so I decided to try two of them on one side of my g12t-75 loaded stereo cab. That way I can A/B without having to remove the beam blockers.
The g12t cab is much less beamy than my v30 cab, so I didn't think it would make a huge difference. How wrong I was.:)
After getting my Powerball set how I like it I jammed away on the side equipped with my beam blockers. It sounded great as usual, but the grainy beamy overtones were simply missing. My settings were exactly the same as usual, I didn't have to compensate for the beam blockers. In fact I could play around with the treble control without slicing my head off.
At first I thought they had only made a subtle difference which is what I had expected with this cab, so I plugged into the other side of the cab, which has the speakers without the beam blockers. It took me about 2 seconds to realise how beamy the g12t-75s actually were. It is safe to say that I didn't spend long on that side of the cab. I plugged back into the first side with the beam blockers. I had exactly the same tone, without all the harsh high frequencies. I was stunned.
I can't wait to try them on my v30 cab!
I'll let you guys know how it works out. I may have to order another set for my g12t-75 cab...
As it stands now, I can recommend Weber Beam Blockers to anyone suffering a beamy cab, or anyone who has a problem with harsh grainy high frequencies. It works much better than DIY gaffa tape beam blockers which I was using previously, but I'll let you guys know how it works out with my v30 cab in a live situation.
