    I have a ‘76 black back celestion G12M with the 55hz (bass cone) in my 1624T clone. Works great in the smaller cab to reinforce the bass. My clone came with a Rolla alnico 12”. I promptly blew it... pedals, playing loud. BUT, I had that celestion laying around and it actually comes near the tone of the Rolla. Fantastic harmonics out of it.

    I have a Valclone 1624T as well and have an Eminence GB128 in mine that sounds really good. I've never tried the G12H in that amp but, I've had them in other amps with good results.

    Not only schools us in Supro amps, but Econ 101, as well! Love it!

    I’ve got an amp and a few pedals on the chopping block in hopes of finding a smaller grab and go amp. I’m starting a new musical project and currently don’t have a place to store my amps so i’m stuck lugging my Supro Jupiter, big pedalboard and at least one guitar up and down 3 flights of stairs a couple nights a week(I know what you’re gonna say-start hittin’ the weights and quit complaining). Looking to get something that will at least cut the load down to one trip to the car at a time.

    I’m looking at the Keely, Comet, and BMr. All of them have qualities I really like. The Keely is kinda taking the lead because of the price and the standard tube availability(also being able to swap in 6L6’s for a different flavor is a cool feature). But the Black Magick’s reverb and Trem(and killer tone) make it a bit more portable since I could leave the pedal board at home for certain practices and rehearsals. The Comet’s small foot print, low weight and lower wattage make it appealing.

    Sorry for the long post but if anyone has any thoughts on these I would appreciate it. I know they’d all be a great choice and i’d Probably own all 3 if that was an option.

    I bought a Supro1605R 5 watt 1x8" combo and it's pretty much the ultimate small amp for me. It's actually got some great clean tones in there and obviously breaks up so well. And the reverb is super lush! I don't even look at small combos anymore cause I doubt anything could beat it for me.
