    Hey guys, I just picked up a used Blue for a great deal. It looks like I have a "good" English made one with the correct code (H1777). Also, is it possible to tell if the speaker has been reconed? There seemed to be more adhesive/glue on the cone than other speaker cones I've seen. Let me know your thoughts.

    That's secondary to whether it is English and/or whether it is original. :BEER

    If it says Celestion Blue on the label, it's English. If it says Vox Blue and is new than it was assembled in China. If it's an older modeled labeled Vox Blue, than it's English. FWIW, the only "Blue" ever sold as a single pack after market speaker has been a "Celestion Blue", and they have always been built in the UK. We have not sold a "Vox" lableded Blue as a single pack speaker (nor could we, it's Vox's speaker). The Vox speaker is a OEM product only. I hope that clarifies things for the "where was my Blue built" bandwagon crowd.
