I've been trying a few "alternative" speakers with my Fuchs as of late, (still like my Scholz but I'm looking for a speaker(s) for my other 1 x 12's), and among them was a nicely broken in Fane AXA (Axiom) 12" 100 Watt Alnico. (about 5 years old) I REALLY liked this speaker with my Fuchs and my newly acquired Heritage H-150CM with Wolfetone Dr Vintage pups. I realize that Fane has gone bankrupt and has been purchased by Precision Devices International Limited, and they state (on the "Fane" web page) that the equipment, etc., is going to be moved to a "new" plant with the idea of resuming production, but as sometimes happens when a company is "acquired" by another, the "new" Fane might not be anything like the original Fane. US speaker and other speaker "sellers" have long since sold out of the Fane AXA 12 speaker, and although they are still listed as "in stock" and for sale at Kendrick, the newsletter I recieved from Kendrick this morning seems to indicate even they are out of the Fane Alnico as they are now putting the Kendrick Brownframe 12 (as stock) in the amp that always came stock with the Fane. I would like to acquire one of these speakers, so if anybody here knows of a "stash" anywhere, it would be greatly appreciated. I also tried the Celestion Gold Alnico 50 watt with my Fuchs, and although I didn't like it quite as much as the Fane, (pretty close though) I was actually VERY surprised as to how much I liked it considering how some here have dismissed it with a Fuchs amp. I also tried the Tonker with my Fuchs. Nuff said on that! OUCH!
