    I liked the Warehouse veteran, and the Eminence was good also.

    But my favorite was the Weber silverbell. Very rich sounding.

    I like several and think several both fit the bill and sound and feel good in their own right. That said I've left in the Jensen C10R because even though it's not the most expensive sounding speaker in the lot, to me it sounds the most authentic in this amp. Another person might not be seeking "authentic". So there really is no right or wrong. Just different.

    Nice compare video. I liked the Weber Ferromax and BluePup. I have a 65 NR Princeton and I have found the 10" Scumback (unobtainium Pre Rola) to be the bees knees. The clarity, efficiency, and slight give are remarkable.

    This is a great video. I just went through 4 of those speakers for my PRRI. I kept the Gold and the Eminence for the two cabs. I have the T version of the Weber, but liked your version better. I like the Jupiter SC a bit more than the stock C10R, even though they both sound really similar.

    I really likes the creamback. A lot of clean headroom.

    The Jensen C10 and the Gold Celestion. Sorta like Jethro Bodine and Mrs Drysdale.

    I liked the Jupiter and the Creamback. My '70s PR has a Ragin Cajun in it. May be time to try something new.

    I have the ga10 in my 70s Princeton but I like the Jupiter and Weber. The gold sounds amazing but I'm afraid that its not an authentic tone and thats what Im leaning to.

    I know the Ragin Cajun is a popular speaker. I was familiar with the speaker and chose not to include it because I knew that it was too tight or firm feeling for my taste, so I wanted to include speakers I had not spent time with.
    The gold sounds too refined for the amp IMO. But that does not mean it's not a great sounding speaker. Just the wrong match. But I know people who love the Gold in their Fender amp. To each their own.

    In person the Creamback is more refined than the Jupiter. I prefer the Creamback. It's actually one of my favorites in the test. The Jupiter however was one of my least favorites. In front of the amp, several others with similar character exhibited more personality, more tones etc. In comparison the Jupiter seemed a little dull or 1 dimensional. But that's just me. Can't account for other folk's ears, wants, or gear.

    Nice video even though you've already assumed I can't play (I have two delay pedals on my main board, one with a single short repeat for leads, the other multiple repeats for "space" effects).

    There's still one last hope: Is your name by any chance, The Edge? :)

    out of curiosity, did you ever try the Fat Jimmy c1025? Its also made by WGS but to me sounds much better than the Veteran or Jupiter (or the Jensen for that matter). Its a cheap speaker too
