my little mexican speaker is blown in my blues jr,whats a good speaker to replace it with?
I recently put a Greenback in my Blues Jr. and it sounds pretty good. Before that I had a Vintage 30. The Greenback sounds much better.
weber blue dog or silver bell
Eminence Red White & Blues
I have Vin 30,Greenback,and GH-30s.I prefer the GH30.
I hope this reply doesn't come off too negatively but, frankly, friends don't let friends waste their hard-earned money trying to upgrade BJs. I have two USA Fender 50W Gold Label Emi's lying around my house right now. You want one for the BJ? If you can wait to receive it until after New Year's (I'm too busy to deal with shipping until then), it's yours for free - just reimburse me for the shipping.
thanks john,i have a maz sr , my #1 amp the jr i take to a open mike i help host in chesapeake beach md.last jam one of the jammers blew my speaker,over the year iv been hosting ive had a few things destroyed.i use to take the z ,now its the bj,
If you can spring the cash, a real Vox Blue is amazing and with 1 watt in for 100dB out it will be one loud sucker too.

This speaker may be one of the smoothest speakers available and is a timeless classic.
I tried a Vintage 30 in mine. It was a slight improvement, but it doesn't sound like you're worried about tone so much as reliability, as you have a Maz for your #1. The V30 is more efficient than the Greenback. While it's a great sounding speaker, I don't think that I could justify the cost of the Celestion Blue. My tuppence.
drjojo42, like I said, if you want a free Fender Gold Label (i.e., shipping cost only), it's yours. If so, email me your address and allow me until around just after new years to ship it to you. All I ask is that if you take me up on this, I expect that speaker to go into that amp!
P.S. The speaker I'll send you was pulled originally from a BJ (I also have one pulled from a Blues Deluxe).
P.P.S. Are you in the Chesapeake area? If so, perhaps I can hand it to you personally and maybe even jam a bit in the process.
Are you going to install it too?!?
Man, what more could you ask for? That's the best thing I've seen so far today - probably for a week.
I'll be happy to install it with him, like, even a dufus like me can remove a chassis and unsolder and solder two wires!
