• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Table here

    Supporting Membership Guide

    • Monthly Supporting Members will remain Supporting Members
    • Current annual Supporting Members will now be Silver Supporting Members. Perks and permissions remain the same
    • Current Silver Supporting Members will now be Gold Supporting Members
    • Current Gold Supporting Members will now be Platinum Supporting Members
    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.


Do Weber Signature series alnico speakers sound good?

Weber's Signature series alnico speakers are a great bargain, but do they really sound good, or is it a matter of "you get what you pay for"?

I've had one in a Champ and heard one in a Princeton and heard a couple at ToneFest. They sounded good to me.

I've heard very good things about the ceramic Sig 12B, which is supposed to be very close to the Reverend Alltone 12... Which was a very good speaker (I had one in a Hellhound amp). I've built 2 5E7 bandmasters and after pulling one of the alnico 12S's and replacing it with a 65-75 watt 1 1/2" voice coil 10.. these amps sound perfect! I thought they lacked definition with all alnico 12S"s when cranked.. I also put a ceramic 12S in my homebrew 5E3 deluxe and it sounds great as well. If you're wanting retro tones.. at medium to low volumes, the Sig series speakers are an excellent vlaue. If you're playing on big stages, loud all the time, etc... You'll probably want to move up to Webers Vintage series.

So I guess what I'm after here are (for instance) comparisons between the Weber alnico Sig 12" and say the Weber 12A125A or the much more expensive Weber Blue Dog. I'm only interested in tone differences and not physical characteristics.

Oddly enough, that's the one speaker that Weber sells that's just simply an off-the-shelf rebadged Eminence speaker!

No comparison. The Signature is far inferior.

No comparison. The Signature is far inferior.
In fact, those two speakers can be compared, and the strengths and weaknesses and uniqueness of each can be highlighted. Certainly the Signature is inferior if the 12A125A is producing the sound you're after. On the other hand, the 12A125A is inferior if the Signature is producing the sound you're after. One size does not fit all.
