Good point........I like a bit of compression and low end saturation for the music I play. If you want pure clean tones, a higher wattage speaker that can handle low end might be a better choice.Originally posted by KenSea
I have considered that but seeing as I only play at home at this point I am not sure it would be a problem. I wont upgrade if I can't make a real difference. I am somewhat worried the bass might not be all that great in the Blue, as I have read that the bass is a little soft. Are You famuliar with the Fanes?
Could you please explain the tonal difference when you changed out your stock Rambler speaker for the Weber Blue Dog?Originally posted by Red Planet
50 Watt Weber Blue Dog lightly doped w/40 oz magnet.
Try it you wont be dissapointed.
Have you actualy tryed this with the Rambler?Originally posted by Red Planet
The clean sound is much better with the Weber over the stock speaker. The dirty is great!
The stock speaker sucks.
If your just wanting a great clean sound the reissue Jensen C12N is incredable but sounds like arse dirty.
I would also suggest a Celestion G12 Century for a transparent all around good sound.
Any of these speakers are a major improvement over the Kingpin.
Agreed on all counts. Some folks may like other speakers better, that's fine, but I think it's a pretty good match for the amp and I suspect Steve likes it too. It's not like he's one to cut corners on his amps. There's no way I'd describe the tone as muffled; there is more than enough high end in that speaker.Originally posted by studio8000
with my Ramblers, i loved the sound with the stock speakers... then i heard all these people saying the speaker sucked and try Weber or Eminence replacements. so i went that route and tried em. my conclusion... i liked the KingPin better. so i put it back in. i think Steve Carr used those speakers with his amps for a reason. and he probably voiced the amps while hearing it through that speaker so it makes sense. i guess everyone has different opinions, but i like the Rambler just fine with the stock speaker. i think a Blue might sound a little bright considering the Rambler is plenty bright already no?
I have a 2X12 Avatar open back with Celestion Blues. My Rambler is 2x12 also (stock Kingpins). I've hooked up the Avatars with the Blues to the Rambler and I didn't hear much difference - really. And I like my Blues a lot. I use them with my GDS 18W and they sound fantastic.Originally posted by KenSea
Has anyone tryed a Celestion Blue in this amp? If so, how did you like it?
