Hey, this is JohnnyD. I am new here. Need some speaker input. Have a Kendrick Gig Rig that I recently bought used for a great price. Amp sounds really good, but it has a 16 ohm 100 watt Fane alnico and the amp calls for an 8 ohm load. I have been looking at a lot of speakers: Weber Thames, Silver Bell, and 12F150; Eminence Tonker and Texas Heat; Kendrick Brownframe. I play traditional blues, usually with an early 60's Strat and a Hwy 1 Tele. I like the clarity and presence of the Fane, though it can be a bit "spikey" when I am bending with a hard attack on the E or B string. I have no idea how different an 8 ohm version of the same speaker would sound in this amp. I would like to get something similar to the tone the Fane gets, but maybe with a little more early breakup, and a bit more "Jensenlike" warmth. So, if you have had any experience with a Kendrick Gig Rig or with the aforementioned speakers in a good tuibe amp, fire away. The Gig Rig is 35 watts and pretty loud; I hear that it peaks at close to 80 watts sometimes.
