Please? The cheapest place to purchase a Celestion Alnico Cream 12" 8ohm speaker?
I don't think they are available until ~May 10. When they do arrive, check with Avatar Speakers. They are the biggest Celestion retailer that I know of in the USA.
Avatar will be cheapest.
As stated Avatar's Celestion pricing can't be beat!
10 May ??
They are already in stock at www.lean-business.co.uk
They had 4 in stock when i picked one up last week
TAD Germany have 'em in stock
USA...I'm still wondering why they made the Cream Alnico when they have the Gold at 60?watts already? Pushing the wattage up will likely make the speaker lose the character of the Blue Frame it is derived from, maybe they are going for the Fane thing?
Like to hear the tone reports in the future, looks nice though.
We were involved in getting the Cream made. We had a lot of 50W Golds blow over time and we just needed a more powerful option. They responded with the 90W Cream.
Yes; that's what I see here in the USA.
I just bought a Gold from Sweetwater. They gave me 10% off (matched a competitor coupon) plus free ship/no tax.
The cream sounds more like a blue than the gold does.
It's a great idea and means people with high power heads can gig and record with a 1x12
Anyone know what the former is made of -- Kapton, paper?
at 90/100 watts paper former is doubtful - likely kapton or nomex
Thanks, Looking forward to trying one out, i liked the Gold better for my Marshall tones than Vox if that's makes sense?, maybe one of the best after break in, but it didn't really capture the Blueframe vibe, now that would be odd if the Cream gives more of a Blueframe vibe.
I can believe that...I like the Gold but it didn't seem to capture the Blueframe's compression, vibe, etc. They are all good I guess.
