They sound very interesting, have you tried the Eminence LYNCH SUPER V12's they are supposed to be based on old Fanes too.Yeh they are replicas of mid 70's Fane Crescendo purple frames. They are brighter than the current Fane issue speakers. Have a tighter sound.
They aren't copies of the crescendo, but rather the cast frame Fane model specifically voiced for HIWATT that were made until 1974.Yeh they are replicas of mid 70's Fane Crescendo purple frames. They are brighter than the current Fane issue speakers. Have a tighter sound.
The PJ is definitely Greenback inspired. According to this thread, the Wizard is your G12H30 clone:Been away from this thread for a while, but I have two questions:
1) Can anyone say which of the new Redcoats come closest to (i.e. are designed to compete with) the Celestion G12H30 and the Celestion GreenbacK?
Red Ryder = G12-80
Man O War = G12T-75
The Wizard = G12H-30
The Tonespotter = G12T-65
The Governor = Vintage 30
Private Jack = G12M Greenback
Red Fang = G12 Alnico Blue
Commonwealth 12 = JBL E120
DeltaPro 12A = EVM12L
I had already copied and pasted this list to Text Edit, so here ya go. I thought I had copied the full descriptions that another TGP'er posted, but now I can't find them.
Thank you very much for the suggestion. The RW&B's are definitely on my short list. I'm hoping to make a final decision in the next day or two. Maybe Tomo will weigh in on the subject.I think the red white and blues would be a great match with the Dr. Z.
Sesitivity rating on the RW&Bs is 101dB - quite high. That's the spec that matters when you're wondering how loud they'll be. They should be fine!I went ahead and bought a pair of Red White and Blues to go with my Dr Z Route 66. They're going in a large closed back 2x12" Mojo cab. It's actually a Marshall style cab (27" H x 26" W x 14" D). These speakers are rated at 120 watts each. Do you think they'll be underpowered by a 32 watt amp that reaches 40 watts at full clip? I was thinking that their high efficiency combined with the large closed back cab will add some extra volume to this amp. I'm sure they would sound great in this cab with a Fender Twin style amp, or a Fuchs. I just hope the Route 66 can drive a pair of them into the range where they sound good.
Sounds like the Tonkers for you imhoWell i tried to read the whole thread but my eyes started to bleed. Ok i have a BF deluxe reverb, I play surf instrumental so i need sweet clean sound at high volume. so what emi speaker should i be looking at? I hear the rex is good but might be too dark sounding for surf. RWB? maybe i don't know. what do you guys think.
I had a DRRI for about 5 years and agree, the Tonker would sound great in that amp. If you really want to stay with an American style speaker, try the Swamp Thang. I'm using one in my Gries 35 and it is one sweet speaker.Sounds like the Tonkers for you imho
Well, I believe Slash uses Celestion Vintage 30s, so the obvious choice would be The Governor.hi
i want to build a custom amp for a friend
he's most in the slash/guns and roses stuff
what would be the best eminence speaker for the slash sound ?
he's an ibanez with a dimarzio virtual paf, and i would build
a higain single ended class A amp
