    I think there was a thread on this exact topic about a month or two ago. Try a search, there was a lot of good suggestions in that thread, if I recall.

    The ga and 1028k are both solid choices. O have two original cts alnico's and two Jensen tornados in my sfsr. The cts is the classic sound. The tornados sound big in comparison

    I'll endorse the Emi 1028K's. They are great sturdy alnicos and belong in the Legend Line.

    I liked this but want to back it as a post.

    Reasonable cost and damn hard to beat (IMO) at any cost.

    The best Super Reverb I ever had was a Silver Face NMV non-drip edge and it had Mojo Tone ceramics. I bought it that way. I read Steve Travato Jazz/Country player and instructor had them in his Super also. Man I miss that amp.

    Any idea why the 1028 is so much more affordable than the SC59?

    CTS alnico's or the closest thing you can get. Check it out.

    Of historical note, Eminence was the successor to CTS, purchasing much of the CTS equipment and employing several of the CTS staff.

    What style of music do you play and at what volume level? Everybody wants to throw recommendations but nobody wants to know the application? come on man.. come on...

    All good choices so far, but if you're cranking a MIAB in front of that thing you might like a Celestion, for example.

    For pure classic Fender tones, Fat Jimmy is my favorite and I hear nothing but good things about the Emi SC64. I like a fat, warm tone and for that the Emi Ragin Cajun does well. My Super had Jensen reissues in it, the same kind that come in a Bassman RI I think, they sounded great with a OCD in front of it with a Strat playing blues-rock. I replaced them with original CTS alnicos, and it's "Different" but I would not say "better". If I were a touring musician, I would rather have the Jensen reissues. Consistent sound, cheap and easy to replace. Sounded good, had a nice rock and roll breakup.

    I used four Weber A100 10's in one SR and 4 four Weber Signature alnico 10's in another. Both were very fine sounding and I was really impressed with the tone of the Signature 10s. With multiple speakers the sound is always better than with one.
