what actual sonic differences do you hear between cts ceramic and alnico speakers in a vintage super reverb? does alnico break up later?

The alnicos will give you a more squashed tone with a lot more emphasis on mids. They roll off highs and fart the bass a tad (no easy accomplishment with that large of iron and 4x10s). They really fatten up the super reverb's tone - make it more meaty than the stereotypical scooped "rhythm sound of doom." They are pretty inefficient and make the amp more gigable in clubs. All of the above is basically why most guys are looking for super reverbs with CTS alnicos.
