    Because I REALLY like the tone. Not so hot on the price (just my opinion, I didn't say it was overpriced).

    This would be for a 1x12 speaker cab. Sounded GREAT with my Duende (I was testing out a buddy's cab).

    Anything that captures that sound? :thud

    WGS makes a Celestion gold type speaker called the Blackhawk. They're $229.

    Thanks, hodeo.
    Have you heard the Blackhawk at all?

    I was under the impression that the Celestion Gold
    was a 50 Weber Blue Dog replacement

    may want to look there

    The Red Fang could also be a lower cost alternative to a gold.

    btw, I just played 2 used Dr. Z amps this weekend
    in my local store

    A Mazerati with a Red Fang, and Maz 18 with a 50 watt Weber Blue Dog

    Not sure what part the amp played in the equation

    But the Maz with the Blue Dog had a ton more bass
    Nice tight bass

    The Mazerati with Red Fang, was missin a bit
    Not sure if it was soley cuz of the Red Fang
    But I've had Celestion Blues sound too weak
    in the bass too

    Was very impressed with the tone of the 50 Weber

    I actually have a 30 watt Blue Dog, and don't
    get that much bass out of it
