    I recently got a pair of these secondhand, and put them in my SR along with two Emi Copperheads - are these things supposed to have very early, somewhat fuzzy breakup with a LOT of high end, or did I get ripped off and bought some worn out/blown speakers?

    I've got one in a Princeton and a couple in a Brown Super. They sound great to me.

    Make sure you don't have them wired out of phase.

    These are hands down my favorite 10's. I got early, warm, break-up, not too much high-end.

    Certainly early break-up.

    Early break-up, complex midrange, sweet highs with no ice pick. Bass response is surprisingly good, but not overpowering. Nice speakers, but they are made to give it up for overdriven blues. Original Jensens they are not.

    Thanks for all the replies - I'll give them another shot, maybe with some other speakers than the copperheads. Thanks!

    I thought they sounded "papery", I prefered a Cooperhead in my old Vibrolux.

    GAT hit the nail on the head "papery" (for me a good sound).

    Aha, "Papery" IS some of what I heard, thanks.

    Just thought I'd respond. I've experimented with these a bit. They have a very small dust cap and therefore can be harsh if you really try to push them ala' stevie in a super. They are great at clean and slightly distorted tones, simply amazing in a loud amp when you turn down the guitar volume to clean up.

    Mine are currently sitting around. The ultimate speaker in a super reverb....if you don't turn way up.

    IMHO...FWIW>

    Agreed, definitely papery and they sound better when they aren't blasted. A quartet in a BF Super Reverb on 5-6 is a sound to lust after. I gigged with that setup for years.
