We wanted a new speaker that was in between the British Sound and the American Vintage sound so we came up with the new Greyhound Speaker. During the design process we mainly used a Blackface Twin to test so we think this speaker sounds particularly good in this type of amp as well a Peavey 5150 for high gain. As far as tone goes, the Greyhound is smoother sounding on the top end and upper midrange than a Celestion Vintage 30 but has more punch than a Jensen C12N. It has a great rock tone (specially for mid gain to high gain amplifiers) but stays clean enough for those who don't like too much speaker break-up.
Speaker Size: 12"
Voice Coil: 1.75''
Magnet: 48 oz. Ceramic
Power Handling: 70W
Revc: 6.700 Ohm
Resonance (Fs): 97.280 Hz
Sensitivity: 101.3 dB

Rhythym Guitarist Skippy and the Skipjacks I built my own 2 x 12 cabinet and put a pair of these speakers in it. I use this cab to play hard rock and metal, and boy do they deliver. They are incredibly powerful and never lose their definition, no matter how hard I push them. They have an incredibly tight response, and sound very distinct and clear from the really high highs to the lowest lows. Killer speakers!!!!

Tone Guru Was in a pinch and needed two speakers right now today to go in a Twin Reverb headed out on tour. Owner insisted on Swamp Thangs but a pair was simply unavailable within the time frame, so when Andrew suggested these, we decided to give it a whirl.
The pair of Greyhounds actually sounded really good in the Fender Twin at sane volume levels and will definitely get us through the hump until the Swamp Thangs arrive. They perform pretty much spot on with the product description, and it's easy to see where the medium breakup nodes will work very well for those players who want a little British grit when the amp is pushed with volume or OD pedals. The cleans are surprisingly good at moderate volume with a pretty big bass response and warm smooth top end. We did not try these with OD because the owner uses this amp purely as a clean machine.
Personally, we'd like to see a 100-150 watt version of this speaker with later breakup nodes at exactly the same price point to satisfy those players on the pro gospel circuit who drive the living breath out of their Fender Twins day in and day out. The market needs a cost-effective alternative to the Swamp Thang whose cost just keeps rising.
Thanks for bailing us out with this speaker pair Andrew!

null I have owned 2 Grehounds for over 5 years and I love them. The first I tried was in a Blackface Twin Reverb circuit. It does thsoe BF tones extremely well! I put one in my 1x12 Blue Angel, where it again excels in the clean tones, very "Deluxe Reveb". I do not push my amps a whole lot but when I do, the Greyhound keeps it together, delivering crisp, robust tone that delivers over a wide spectrum without sounding hi-fi or stiff. It does not have a midrange bump like some Celestions, not honky or scooped. I tried it in a 6V6 plexi circuit where it again just spews out what ever I asked of it. Never too dark, never too thin, never too bright -just balanced and responsive over many power and volume levels and it can sound aggressive when it needs to. I honestly can't understand why this speaker isn't more widely known since it has been out for years. I even love the way it looks -very distinct from the compettition. GREAT job Mojo Tone.

null Greyhound 12" guitar speaker - this is a fabulous sounding guitar speaker. Just as described, it's between a vintage Celestion sound and a Jensen C12N. Great clean sounds and just enough crunch when pushed hard with a good tube amp aka AB763 Fender or 1987 Marshall
"love em" !
