    I've added a Green Beret 2x12 and an Invader 1x12 to the stable, and absolutely love them! The majority of my cabs are now loaded with WGS speakers. The models I'm currently using are;

    -ET65
    -ET10
    -Green Beret
    -Invader
    -12L
    -G12C
    -G12C/S
    -Black & Blue
    -Vet10

    I'm now also using a G12A/S prototype with all my American amps. The G12C/S with an Alnico magnet. It sounds amazing! Hopefully they'll be able to officially release them at some point this summer.

    I've now had the Retro 10 and Retro 30 for a while as well, and really love them. I find that I use them more than the Green Beret and Invader.

    It's also worth mentioning that I ended up preferring the Invader over the Green Beret.

    Agreed, I have one in my GVT15. That amp screams Brown Sugar all damn day.

    I have a few. Currently have a WGS 12L in a 1X12 for my Two Rock. I have a 2X12 cab I just put a ET-90 and Reaper HP in that I'm using with my Two Rock also. Sounds pretty killer so far. I have 2 ET-65's that are going in a vintage Bassman cab. All the WGS speakers sound great! My favorite is the 12L but it weighs a metric ton!!!

    Have 2: et65 and retro30

    They’re both great speakers, the et65 is a special one though, pairs great with a greenback to add some bottom end.

    I have two Vintage 20s in a Super Reverb along with two original CTS ceramic speakers. The Vintage 20s are supposed to sound like the CTS alnico so it a good mix.

    I have a GC5C in a custom 1x15 cabinet for a Princeton Reverb. Sounds perfect!

    I have a Blackhawk HP, but don't like it as much as the Celestion Cream Alnico, so getting rid of it. Have used ET65 in Fender style amps and they were good, but didn't wow me.

    I use a pair of 8ohm ET-65s in a 2x12 cab wired in series, with a 50 watt Marshall JCM 800 running at 16 ohms impedance. Sounds awesome.

    I have a Vboutique Vumble which I want to load with WGS. One of the speakers I definitely want in it is the WGS12l, but I'm not sure what other speaker to put in it. I want the cab to be able to theoretically handle 200 watts. I like the sound of the ET-65, but it wouldn't meet my wattage requirements. The ET-90 might be too loud compared to the WGS12l. I'm considering the Blackhawk HP, currently. Any ideas?

    G12q with a Goodsell Champton. A really good fit.

    I have the 12L in a Forte 1x12, but also keep the Veteran30 on hand just in case it finds a home.

    The 65 should be able to handle a dimed 65W amp. Then you could order a one off w. the 90W coil.

    Whether or not one would be louder I'm sure spkrbldr on here would be at service to elaborate on

    Ive had a pair of Green Beret's that have been in the box for around a decade. They were in a Avatar Contemporary 2x12 and I honestly can't remember what they sounded like. I had Golds in that cab before the Beret's and Heritage 12-65's for many years after, but can't say I loved any of them in that cab. Might have to find a cab to put them in or sell em.
