    Looking for suggestions for speaker replacement. Current install CelestionGreenback G12M, 16ohm. 25w.
    I'm considering to replace with a speaker that will be brighter in the NT. but still, could provide the beautiful Vox tone when needed.

    I wear hearing aids and my tastes have changed to a brighter sound for playing. I play at low-level # 5 on the Vol. Rhythm only. I haven't made it to the point of playing the lead, but do wish I'd get there soon.

    Any suggestions?

    FW, I've gone through a few speakers for my NT. I'm assuming you are using the combo. Of the five speakers I've tried in a closed-back 1x12 cab, the brightest was a Celestion G12F-60 aka. 'Rockdriver Junior'. They don't make these anymore, but according to Dr. Decibel, the closest speaker they have to a match is a V-Type. Good luck with the hunt.

    your g12M greenback is actually kinda on the dark side... that's what I like about mine, actually... it sounds like you would like a V30... I've always felt the V30 is too bright, especially at home-volumes... it opens up with live volume though...

    One further point to the V-Type. I noticed the other day that these now come stock in new Fender Twin Reverb RI amps. I figure Fender found them a good fit for the TR warm, chewey goodness. I always felt Fender used bright speakers to best compliment this. Might be a winner for you.
