Actually I'm talking about a Weber Blue Dog (Alnico) which should be similar. I recently got one (used) and used it with a Bandmaster and a Maven Peal Zeeta and didn't dig it at all. Both sound way better to my ears with a Weber 12F150. Clean sounds fine but with some gain there's some compression/break-up going on not at all to my liking. I'm guessing I'm more used to clear efficient speakers. Anyone know what the efficiency rating for a Alnico Blue/Blue Dog is?
