I took a look in the back of my handwired Deluxe Reverb after hearing all this junk about Chinese speakers, and whaddya know... Mine is a Chinese V30! And guess what: It sounds amazing! It could be because it's well worn in. I have played 203 shows with this amp to date, so that speaker has worked pretty hard. It has never let me down and has always been a delight. Can't imagine I'm really missing out that much.
