    The Black Shadows are modeled after the Electro-Voice speakers, the EV-12Ls. I have two original Series II speakers if you'd like to try them (contact me or look in the Trade section).

    Zakk Wylde uses these speakers in a combo he used to record the new acoustic album he put out, so they work great with both clean and distortion.

    I got two Blk Shdws Custom 90s to replace the bottom half of my Vint 30 loaded Mesa Recto cab. Best move I ever did, it tightened up the gain from my amp (Mesa Solo 50) as suggested by the Mesa Factory.

    Black Shadow is just a name Mesa puts on all there speakers. They're actually made by several diffierent companies.
    I have two MESA 4X12's that have two Celestion custom 90's and two EV 150 watters each. All four speakers have the Black Shadow label on them...

    Just curious. The mesa .50 caliber + combo i just bought has one in it and to me it sounds pretty cool. Nice and warm

    I just wanted to see what others thought.

    A lot of boogie amps had these speakers stock, go and read some reviews at Harmony Central for the boogie Dual Caliber series amps. I seem to remember a few reviewers mention swapping out the black shadow for xyz and then saying what improvement it made.

    My DC-3 has a black shadow, some had celestion vintage 30s IIRC, but I haven't heard one of those or this amp with a different speaker in it, so I can't comment sorry.

    What amp is this for? Are you looking at replacing the one you have, looking at getting one, or just curious?

    What is the general consensus on Black Shadows. How they sound and compare to other popular speakers?
