      I ordered a panama conqueror combo on reverb and the seller (Panama guitars) contacted me and said that the ones they had ready to ship had the BFM speaker in it. I was wondering how did that compare to the AV30 speaker in the other combo?

        The AV30 is their take on a Celestion Vintage 30. So if you're familiar with most cabs out there they will have a Vintage 30 and will have a comparable sound and response spectrum. I prefer the BFM for my Shaman Retro, my Loco or my Marauder. They're not made for so much high gain, and I would describe them as smooth.Very responsive to pick attack. Were you planning on running pedals for boosting gain?

      Love the tone on your Panama Conqueror. The tubes, though... at least I think it's probably one of the tubes. The amp has very low output until it has warmed up for about five minutes, then there's a bit of static for a minute, after which the volume goes up to normal level, ie much louder. That has to be a tube warming up, but which one? the 6V6 I suppose? Otherwise, great little head, great tones.

        You know, my first thought of course is to remove and reseat the tubes. Let me know if you have already tried that. If you are still having the issue, Panama Guitars can arrange to have a new unit sent to you.

        Comments? Oh yeah. I scored a couple of Celestion Gold 10's that I intended to put in the Boca 2x10 I recently bought. The front loaded drivers can't be accessed from the front because the grill isn't screwed on, it's sandwiched in and glued. Pulling the plate the drivers are mounted on from the back is futile because it's glued in as well. Did you guys intend for this product to be unrepairable? Not a happy boy.

        I personally haven't tried to load different drivers, but that does sound like a bit of a challenge. I'm going to reach out to our design team and see what their best practices are for swapping out drivers to better suit your needs.

        Thanks for reaching out!
