    Default New speaker day

    Celestion blue. It sounds so natural! I left the other Celestion V type in there and it sounds great to have 2 different speakers. Also a quality demo of my favorite ax with the custom shop 12k Phat Cat bridge.

    Clint, can you describe the advantages and disadvantages or preferences of both the Alnico Blue and V Type?

    Since you have both side by side -as I have no Alnico speakers in any rigs presently.

    I have Celestion Ceramic 60W V30s, Ceramic 50W V Types, and Ceramic 25W Greenbacks and some Non Alnico Jenson and Eminence speakers currently.

    The alnico one is really smooth and natural. It's like I can hear the guitar exactly. The top is slightly rounded like if I had a small tone cap with the tone on 9. The ceramic one has ice pick on the top and seems to accentuate the Fender amp sound. Also, the alnico's mids sound nice and pillowy while the ceramic one's mids sound more defined and gritty. They both sound great but the alnico one is slightly mellower and more natural. I'm for sure gonna stick with both of them.

    I like my V types, but my favorite is my Greenbacks -however -the Greenbacks are totally played in after decades so their mellow smooth breakup is different than if I bought new -so not quite fair.

    I have one cabinet with a brand new V type and I'll agree the high gain brings out a top end sharpness that I roll off by backing off the presence and the high sensitivity gain input control.

    Ooh, wait until the blue plays in fully. Loved mine in the AC30. So much so, that my custom Whitney has Eminence Red Fang as its stock speaker!
