All you have to do is carefully compare the specs for both and you will find out what you want to know. Then you can tell us all about your findings and that would be a good contribution.
What is it with you and Waldo telling people who post a Jerry Tone question
on a Jerry Tone message board
to go get their answer somewhere else?
In theory, theory and practice agree. In practice, they often don't.
FWIW, and I think we've been over this here before, specs are useful, but they can only tell you so much. It's a fair request, on a Dead gear forum, to ask for practical, experience-based input.
I have no personal experience with a 2130 so I can't comment on how close or not it sounds to a K120. I can, though, offer these brief further thoughts based on personal experience.
(1) Don't overplay "hold out" in the context of seeking a K120. They're not unobtanium. I see them all the time on eBay, for example (indeed, I just checked, you can find some there right now). Admittedly, the eBay examples may or may not be pristine and/or all original but there are some pretty damn good folks out there skilled on reconing or restoring JBLs.
(2) I do own an example @ of a D120, K120, and E120. The K and E, while not identical sounding, each sound far closer to the other than either does to the D. I have my K and my E in identical SSP 1X12 cabs. Everyone probably knows by now that I'm not nearly as obsessive about my tone as some others here so take - or discount, depending on your bent - my comments as such, but if your playing
is up to Jerry standards, I believe virtually no one in your audience will enjoy your band's experience more or less on the basis of whether your rig includes one or more K120s versus E120s.
This being said, if you play very loud with high wattage, the E120's specs do answer your preference question then.
Good luck with your tone quest!
