Ratings & Reviews
Ideal low volume speaker
by Jake T -
This has quickly become my favorite speaker for home use. I plug a 1x12 Mojotone Lite extention cab into my Mesa Boogie Lone Star (set to 10 watt mode, of course!) for practice and jam nights. It is inefficient (quiet) which allows me to set my amp to its sweet spot without driving my wife nuts – I prefer this speaker to using an attenuator. The speaker itself distorts at low volume and adds a bit of graininess to overdriven tones. What I appreciate most is how its resonate frequency appears to be in a sweet spot and prevents ear fatigue – I can practice for hours, even at higher volume, without wanting to switch to my acoustic!
very vintage authentic
Nice lightweight USA made speaker. It's a C12R with the 1" voice coil and the classic seamed cone. Cone itself is paper thin as per original. Speaker sounds very vintage correct which is a nice thing. In a tweed Deluxe for example, the extra bass the amp itself has balances well with the bass lacking speaker itself. The speaker is very bright and thin sounding, and has low volume as per original. Overdrive is crunchy/ratty in the Brownface Deluxe and my Deluxe Reverb. Overall a quality made speaker that is very vintage authentic, warts and all. Good choice for low volume, thin, clean work. Nothing like hearing a speaker being pushed to its limits even at lower volumes. That said the C12R itself has its limiatitions and those are faithfully recreated here.
