    Does anyone here have playing experience, or have auditioned the Tone Tubby alnico hempcone speaker and the Austin Speaker Elegante alnico speakers?

    I want to put one of these in a 2x12 cab with a Tone Tubby ceramic hempcone speaker but have no way to audtion any speakers where I live.

    I have read up on both, but listening to them on a computer is not giving me enough input.

    Any information would be grately appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I have had both speakers. Two TT hemp Alnicos in a 2x12 cab and a ASW Elegante in a 1x12. .
    The TT will give you smooth warm tone that is extremely detailed and articulate.
    The Elegante is a little more trad sounding. Very rich harmonically when pushed. Brighter than the TT.
    I'm obviously not sure how either of these will compliment your existing speaker but, on their own, they are both good choices.

    cheers
