Rank the speakers you've owned

Recommended Posts

A supplement to the Rank the Amps You've Owned thread; I think speakers can make or break your tone much the same as an amp can. List 'em from best to worst!

 

My list:

Scumback Greenbacks

Scumback G12H-30

Celestion Greenbacks

WGS Retro 30's

Celestion GT75

Sheffield 5150

Peavey XXX

Celestion V30

Soldano/Eminenve X12000

I'll bite. I don't consider any of these worse than the others, just personal preference.

 

Favorite to least favorite:

Celestion G12K100

Celestion Greenback

Eminence P50E

Eminence Texas Heat

Celestion V30

Celestion Century Vintage

Celestion Century

Celestion Hot100

Celestion G12T75

Eminence Governor

Eminence Manowar

It depends too much on the application and amp they're paired with to put them in a list like that IMO.

I agree. But so does making "best amps you've owned" depend on application and which speakers they're paired with. And making lists is just fun. :)

Sure, but I believe the amp depends on the speakers almost as much as the speakers depend on the amp.

Depends on application, really. Right now, what works best for me is the WGS green beret/reaper combo. But I have owned all of these.

 

EDITED TO REPRESENT ORDER FROM FAVORITE TO LEAST FAVORITE

 

WGS Green Beret/Celestion Greenback

WGS Reaper/Celestion g12h30

Celestion 65/WGS et65

Eminence Private Jack

WGS Veteren 30

Eminenc v12

Eminence Governor

Celestion g12t75

Celestion Vintage 30

 

 

The greenbacks/g12h30s (green beret/reaper) seem to be my go-to. I like the WGS variations just as much as the celestions.

 

EDIT: This list doesn't include the 10" speakers that I have used and liked.

Whatever's in my 76' marshall 4x12 I like best (I was told they were creambacks). The rest (G12H30, Jensen P12N, G1275, V-30) are equally good, though highly dependent on the application.

It's pretty cool that the choices are all over the map.

 

We really have it good these days.

 

20 years ago, most guitarists would have tried two speakers; the Crate speaker with which he started, and the stock Celestion speaker in his Marshall 4x12.
