    My Pure Soul original cab had a Silver Bell and a Blue Dog alnico. Sold it to a friend who fell in love with it. Great combo and yes, I love Webers.

    For sure! Unfortunately Webers are too expensive in the UK. Fortunately over here we have some decent speaker builders too.

    Yup,that kinda works both ways,some of the speakers I was wanting(that elusive Tayden)......and hell,yes y'all have some great speaker builders!

    Im gonna load the Webers into a Seismic 2x12,just until I can get a good ole Avatar 2x12.....Maybe. Ive been looking at some fellas raw cabs on the 'Bay and damn if those arent tempting as well:naughty:

    The amp has so much character than most of its personality comes through whatever speaker you're using.

    Oh man,H...I found a real winner. I took that Silver Bell,put it in a 1x12 and am using it with my Phaez Gemini. Words cant describe it,for this,I really do need to shoot a vid....The Gemini is a JTM-right channel/Blackface -left channel amp....The JTM has a pull boost and when its engaged going through this speaker,brother,Im really nailing some early Billy G. tones along with some of my own. I cant quit playing the damn thing:laugh2: :laugh2: :laugh2:

    Looking forward to hearing it... at the end of the day, a well broken in speaker will become more "in-tune" with whatever you're feeding into it so looking forward to hear that silver bell maturing.

    A perfect example of this, are my WGS Retro 10.

    I put them in 1x10" Birch enclosures, then made Birch backboards. Wow, they were very dark sounding speakers.

    I broke the set up, which was being used for my Lead 12 mini stack, and used one each for my JCM1H and JMP1H. The JCM gets a lot more play and as the speaker breaks in more, its a very noticeable difference between the two now.

    The speaker in the angle cab has really opened up well. I get nice tight defined highs, with these harmonics, that just make the hair on my arms stand up... whereas that tone, never used to be there.

    Excellent advice.
