• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Table here

    Supporting Membership Guide

    • Monthly Supporting Members will remain Supporting Members
    • Current annual Supporting Members will now be Silver Supporting Members. Perks and permissions remain the same
    • Current Silver Supporting Members will now be Gold Supporting Members
    • Current Gold Supporting Members will now be Platinum Supporting Members
    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.

tone tubby has way more bottom end and sparkling highs(smooth). G1265 is a little more throaty in the midrange. Both are great - 65's are best in closed back. We use both speakers in our amps.

I can't comment on the TT but can tell you that the Rola Celestion G12-65s work just as well on open back cabs. I have had them in Hiwatt and Marshall 4 X 12" cabs where they sound great but I have also had them in open back combos like the Fender Deluxe and Princeton II amps, Boogie Mark IIC" and MK III, Studio .66, Ampeg Gemini I, Marshall JTM30 and Studio 15 and JCM 800 2 X 12 combo. In each of those amps the G12-65 sounded at least as good and many times much better than the stock speakers and other speakers I tried, including JBL's, Electro Voice, Jensens, other Celestions and Webers. The 12-65 is a very versatile speaker and it works very well in my single 12" detuned cab as well.

I have both. The TT works better in my opinion for just about anything other than Marshall crunch. DonR description pretty much mirrors mine. It also depends on the version g12 -65 your talking about as they made a bunch of them not sure about the new reissue.

These are probably my two favorite speakers. Both are very versatile, and this is a pretty good summary of their differences.

I agree, the 65's sound good in open back applications as well, but the tone tubbies almost need some open back to get them to sound their best-so I lean to the 65's for the closed back application. We use the heritage reissues, pricy, but very nice. Both speakers are versitle and can cover fnder,marshall,vox tones equally well.
