I have spent all the money I've saved over the last year or so on a $3k+ highly regarded boutique amp head and 2x12 that is being built right now. Not naming names, I talked to the guy and asked about speakers. I told him I have a Tone Tubby AlNiCo in my BFDR and a 4x12 of Scumbacks 75 and 55's that I liked...a lot. He recommended a Celestion Blue and a V30. He also said that he had tried the Tone Tubbies and the Scumbacks in his amps and didn't like them...at all and told me that they pretty much sucked. I really like mine, so that set me back a little, but on the other hand, I don't have any experience with Celestions. The amp is kind of a Tweed Pro meets JTM 45 (KT66's) deal. My ideal 2x12 was going to have 1 AlNiCo and 1 Ceramic...something like a Scumnico and a 75M or a Tone Tubby AlNico and a TT ceramic, or maybe a Weber version of each. You guys that have played lots of speakers including new ones, how do you feel about these new Celestions? Are they really good, as good or better than these "boutique" speakers? BTW the guy has a good sized "Celestion Equipped" emblem on his website, which makes my think he is getting a deal on them and making alot more $$$ using these speakers.
