Building on the platform of the Blue, the Gold is a higher-powered, Alnico-magnet speaker that recreates the unmistakable sonic signature of a ‘well played-in’ original. Over time, the high frequencies of a Blue soften and become less chalky as the cone becomes more flexible – a much sought after characteristic that the Gold exhibits straight out of the box. Also present in the Gold sound from the outset is an added warmth and complexity in the midrange which, coupled with the classic Alnico qualities of a laid-back attack, rounded low end and brilliant belllike highs, deliver huge rhythm voicings and saturated vocal lead tones. 

The Gold is a wonderfully expressive and revealing loudspeaker, affording guitarists an unprecedented degree of dynamic control. It has already become a favourite for many working players worldwide whether picking and bending with Brad Paisley, or rocking hard with Danny Spitz of Anthrax.

But it's not the same...

by SHOP -

I have never known anything but this, with one exception, that Marshall TSL 601, sounded awesome. It wasn't quite loud enough so I picked up an ORANGE Rockerverb 100 Mark 1 and paired it with 2 of these when I was rebuilding and figured I'd be set, but it's not the same.

Don't get me wrong I CAN get the tone I want out of it and it's plenty loud enough. I'm just not sure... Something about that Wolverine speaker maybe, could be the amp too. I'm learning EL 34 aint the same everywhere.

I replaced the Jensen speaker on my 5E3 Mojo Tweed Deluxe with a Celestion 8 ohm 12" Alnico Gold. Wow. What a difference. Exactly what I was looking for: great tone and a bit more headroom. Amazing sound out of a great little amp. Plenty of headroom. Worth every penny. My friends can't believe how great this amp sounds.
