1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    I recently got a '67 Thomas Vox Cambridge Reverb. Great little amp with one issue - the stock Oxford Gold Bulldog speaker is tired, and the low frequencies get mushy.

    I had the chance to try the amp with a few different speakers, first using the internal speaker with my Buckingham's 8 ohm 2x12" in the auxiliary, and then using a high efficiency neo 12" with the internal speaaker disconnected. As I suspected, much of the mush in the low frequencies is coming from the stock speaker.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a high efficiency 4 ohm 10" speaker? My preference would be for neo to keep the weight down (the primary reason I got the amp) but I'm open to any suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Mel

    Is the '67 a 10" speaker? My '65 was a 12" and sounded much improved with either a greenback or Blue

    I have a '65 with a 10 inch speaker, I replaced mine with a Celestion Gold Alnico 10 inch speaker, I think it works great in that amp!

    I would think a blue or a gold would give up the goods.

    Hmm. Mine must have been modded long before it came to me. The 12" speaker I pulled out was not original itself, but it was from the late 60's. Anyways, still some green, blue, or gold flavor of celestion (or weber blue) would sound great
