I've had a chance to play both of these speakers in a Dr Z Mazerati 1x12 combo (and with my Stangray head) and I just want to give my quick little comparison. * The Weber Blue Dog - Alnico, 50wts, 8ohms * Eminence Red Fang - Alnico, recently re-rated to 50wts (per Eminence), 8 ohms. * Amp/s used - Dr. Z Mazerati and Dr. Z Stangray. The Weber clearly is the speaker that I like better. It's just a clearer speaker... Lows are lower, highs are higher and mids are nice and bananced (not boxy at all). The speaker just seems to feels more responsive and yet smoother and more aggressive at the same time (if that's possible). The Red Fang, may not be the clear winner between the two, but if I had to pick a 2nd favorite speaker (out of all the speakers I've had over the years), it would be the Red Fang. I traded the Red Fang off a couple weeks back for a Weber Silver Bell and I didn't like it near as well as the Red Fang... But I had a chance to get the Blue Dog for a great price and couldn't pass on it... Otherwise, I would have gotten another Red Fang. The Red Fang was still very "AlNiCo" sounding and had a nice speaker breakup with chime for days but had just a bit "Stiffer" feel to it than the Weber, and maybe a bit "boxy" in comparison... but not bad by any means. Both GREAT speakers, but if you can afford $30-$50 more for the Weber I highly recommend it.... and if you can find a Red Fang for good price, don't pass up on it... you won't regret it. That's my $.02 worth. EDIT: I really need to add this too: My only complaint with the Silver bell was it was too "clean" of a speaker. The Blue has this nice top end break up and compression that the Silver just didn't have. I guess I should back up a bit and mention that I have a 2x12 open back Z cab wtih a Weber alnico blue dog and a weber alnico silver bell.. I tried putting 2 blue's in there, and I liked the sound of the blue/silver better than the two blues. I get the benefits of both, and together they sound HUGE. Tone of the Silver??? It had less mids, more low end and a smoother top end.. it's also less "compressed" sounding/feeling than both the blue and red fang. Also, as I mentioned above, it has less speaker breakup. It's a GREAT speaker too, but not what I was wanting. I actually did a comparison recording with my Stangray a few months back..... I've got that clip at www.guitartest.moonfruit.com on the Stangray page. You pretty much hear what I just said above, it's called "Silver then Blue".
