Yes...like 1200.00 plus tax and shipping...wow!
Oh yeah for sure, hell that would be a 2000.00 cab
I can say that after a long break-in they sound badass in a 2061 2x12 sourmash
clone! So basically I now have a $900 2x12 cab that will never be worth that to anyone
but me . They do sound killer after the break-in though.
Thats great and thats all that matters is that its worth it to you.
I must admit, you Boyz have me getting curious about these speakers...ugh!
All this rav
It's infectious! Now I'm thinking of replacing my gold
There's an amp on Musician's Friend called the Milkman that comes with this speaker.
Oops, it's a brand that comes with an OEM called the Milkman.
Are there any ethics reasons why they would have to stop carrying the Celestion Alnico Cream as the standard speaker for that amp model?
Wizard Amplification. They sell a straight 412 with the Alnico Cream. Alnico Gold is an option as well, but I didn't like the sound of them.
I've got one in the older DSL 40C. Unfortunately for your bank account, they sound delicious at any volume level.
If I were you, I'd consider getting a second open back 1x12 and keep your Gold in that.
I forget what speaker outs the 40CR has, hopefully your Gold is 16 ohms?
From all I've heard, the Gold is an attempt to mimic the Blue at a higher power rating. You get the chime, but you don't get the cone cry of the lower power speaker. This sometimes seems to lead the detail in the Gold to sound a little brittle in the high end when you use more gain.
The Cream seems to be more like the alnico take on the greenback/creamback sound profile.
Running the Cream and the Gold together could bring out the "3D sound" thing.
I've got a Creamback 65 in my extension cab, and at some point I'd like to try Vintage 30 in there, see how that pairs up with the Cream.
I'm with Metroman, the Cream sounds great out of the box, I detected zero over-brightness that needed breaking in.
You may want to check the wiring and make sure they aren't wired wrong. By this I mean take a battery and put two lead words on them and touch the speaker connections. The one that makes the cone go forward is the positive terminal. Make sure all speakers are wired this way. One wrong speaker kills the tone.
Check your wiring. By this i mean take a 9 volt battery and touch the leads with two wires attached to both sides of the battery connections to the terminals of the speaker. The one that makes the cone move forward is the the way it should be hooked up. This assures you which terminal is actually positive on your speaker matching it to the positive of the battery. One speaker wired backwards will kill the tone.
You should try the Ruby Alnico’s as well. They sound more like the Blue’s and handle 35 watts each! I put one in my Astoria Custom combo and love it!
Wizard is cool. They offer many speakers for each cabinet. They also have 1x12 and 2x12 with the same speaker options.
35XC is the best speaker ever.
Just so you know
Nice speaker but I would not go that far.
Have you played one?
Why no I have not.
Have you tried all/any AlNiCo's?
Just got my Alnico Cream installed in my 1X12 JTM45 combo last night. This speaker is fantastic right out of the box. Can’t wait to see what it does after it loosens up a bit!
