    How does the JBL D120F speaker work with overdrive amps like Ceriatone Overdrive, Two Rock, etc.?

    Depends how hard you hit it. If you li[SIZE=-1]ke to play loud with a lot of gain, and you're used to getting Celestion style spea[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]ker distortion, you'll probably barf.

    If you're wor[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]king at a reasonable volume, it's a much prettier sound than an EV, for example imho, high gain or not.

    [/SIZE][SIZE=-1] If you want the big alnico thing for that style amp and you're commited to high gain, the Altec 417 or 418 with a paper dome might be a better choice.
    Great clean sound on both, Altec's smoother when you flog it.

    peace.

    A pair of them sound fantastic with a properly working back face Fender Twin cranked up tight but of course that is not what you would call overdriven.

    Just to clarify my question I am not looking for a high gain tone. More of a sweet singing sustain tone perhaps with some "hair" on it. So, I suppose most would most say thats a low gain tone.
