I want something with a nice natural breakup. Warm sounding and nice bass response. I've been thinking about trying some AlNiCo's as I have never used any before. Using a Fender/Marshall hybrid. Sort of a Blackface/Tweed mashup. What do you guys recommend? Thanks.

If it was a straight Fender... then hands down the Jensen MOD 10-70 !!!!
but since it's a hybrid with Marshall... the Celestion Gold

I have a Sewell Wampus Cat, which is a tweed-based amp, but with a clean sound that can get into BF territory. Right now I have a couple Weber 10a125s, or whatever number the alnicos are. It highlights the tweed aspect a lot - the compressed milkshake tone. I think I'll go back to the ceramics I had in there, an Eminence Raging' Cajun and a Copperhead. That combo has a huge bottom end, but can get sparkly or thick as well.

Lots of great ten's out there. The golds are really good. I also like the red fang... honestly the first 10 that I owned that didn't sound like a ten. Weber also makes some good ones, I just grabbed a weber new to see how close it comes to the JBL's of old.

Check out the WGS G10s. It sounds like you're describing a G10A/S, but the G10C/S is cheaper and may be firmer on the low-end. I haven't tried their smooth cone 10s but the G10C is my favorite American-style speaker these days. They're affordable and awesome.

I like the WGS G10C's as well. The WGS Veteran 10's are great also. I ordered a set of the WGS G10C/S and found them to be a bit to dark but you cant go wrong with the G10C's or Veteran 10s both are just great sounding affordable speakers from WGS.

I think they are much better in a ten than a twelve.
I am astonished how much it sounds like a 12.
I use it with a 210 clubman cab.
Hated the celestion g10.
I put one red fang and a V10 celestion. If I had the $$ I'd probably do 2 RF's.
Before it was way inferior to the 212 matchless cab. Now I can't tell a big difference.

I just got an open back 2x10 cab with G10s in it. The speakers are a long way from being broken in, but my view so far is that they don't sound so amazing when you are playing at lower volumes, but they absolutely kill when they are cranked. I played them with the band for the first time tonight and the nervousness I was starting to have about them evaporated during the first song (being driven by a BF Bandmaster with pedals for OD). The are loud, chimey, balanced and very responsive to dynamics - can't wait to see how they develop as they break in. For a frame of reference, we are playing jangly alt/new wave/punk music from the 80's - so far I've only played my Tele at volume. Have a Ric and a Casino I'll be trying out next.

I like the Dr Z 10" but it isn't Alnico. It has the bass and warmth the OP requires. It sure sounds bigger than a 10" speaker.
