    Hiwatt Lead 50 Speaker Choice

    I would up getting a Weber FC12. I also tried the amp with a couple of speakers I had lying around or installed in my other amp. Figured I'd report back. I should mention that I don't know if this Hiwatt is modified in any way, as I am not the original owner. 1. Celestion V30 - sounds good with...

    Using Fender Vibrolux With An Extension Cab

    Thanks guys! Really appreciate the info! As to getting extra coverage, I agree with Paul G. My extension cab has a different set of speakers. That’s the main reason for wanting to use it, on occasion - not extra coverage.

    Using Fender Vibrolux With An Extension Cab

    I have a recent Fender Vibrolux with 2x10 speakers, 8ohms each, running parallel. The amp requires a 4ohm load. I would like to be able to use the amp with a 2x10 extension cab (4x10 total)…sometimes. And sometimes I’d like to use it as just a combo, with just the onboard 2x10 setup. The...

    Been looking at the Weber FC12, too. Might try that.

    Ahh, good to know. Even the Turntone versions?

    Hiwatt Lead 50 Speaker Choice

    Thanks guys! I thought about going the Fane route, and Eminence makes a pretty good reproduction in the Tonker. But, I’m not sure the Lead 50 is really the same type of sound as the more classic Hiwatt models. So, wasn’t sure it would be a good fit.

    Hiwatt Lead 50 Speaker Choice

    I have a Hiwatt Lead 50 head. Seems like it’s a mid 80s model, from the Turntone era. I’m running it with a Vintage 30. The gain channel sounds nice, but the clean channel, not so much. Does anyone have experience with these? What speakers do you use? Thanks!

    BadCat Black Cat 30R Reverb Issues

    Yep, that was my first step (after googling). Not much help, so far.

    BadCat Black Cat 30R Reverb Issues

    I have a Black Cat 30r (great amp), but recently the reverb on channel 2 stopped working. It still works on channel 1, though maybe isn't as lush as before. If you turn the reverb on channel 2 all the way up, you get white noise. The dry signal still comes though, but no reverb. Doesn't seem to...

    A Duncan pickup that sounds like the Tone Zone

    I’m really happy with the combination of A2Pro in the neck and Slash Signature in the bridge. Since I made the change, this is my go to guitar. The Slash pickup is a little beefier than the A2Pro, so makes for an excellent bridge pickup.

    Speaker Magnet Touching Transformer…problem?

    I could put some electrical tape between the transformer and the speaker. But, not sure if that’s a good idea.

    Speaker Magnet Touching Transformer…problem?

    it’s a 10 inch greenback, so a ceramic magnet. In order to make it fit, the plastic cover has to be removed.

    Speaker Magnet Touching Transformer…problem?

    How big of a problem is it that a transformer may be making slight contact with the speaker magnet? Thanks!

    Celestion Gold 10s in a 59 Bassman Ltd

    Thanks! Unfortunately, it looks like the original has a slightly different layout.

    Celestion Gold 10s in a 59 Bassman Ltd

    Thanks! It seems to be more about the diameter of the magnet assembly. If it’s too wide, it won’t clear the side of the transformer.

    Celestion Gold 10s in a 59 Bassman Ltd

    Just curious: has anyone tried Celestion Golds in a tweed Bassman? if so, do they fit in the top row? There is so little space, because of the transformer and other amp parts, that it seems like almost nothing other than Jensen-type Alnico speakers can fit.

    Eminence Alessandro 10in Alnico Speaker

    I put these into a tweed Bassman. Excellent little speaker. The highs aren’t as harsh and the bass is much tighter than the stock Jensen P10R. Just a much smoother, more pleasant sound, over all, and handles OD pedals better, IMO. They aren’t completely broken in yet, but I’m very impressed...

    Modern Speakers in a Tweed (59 reissue Ltd) Bassman?

    For what it worth, I kept two original speakers at the top and put two 10in Greenbacks in the bottom row. Sounds great. Very happy with the sound.

    I figured I’d update this thread - I wound up installing Lollar dog ear p90s. I used a 5% under wound for the neck, and standard bridge. With the optional Lollar spacers, I wound up with a near-perfect setup in terms of pickup height. The sound quality change is pretty striking vs the original...

    Railhammer Humcutter

    I wound up replacing both the “clean cut” and the “Alnico Grande.” I also tried the “hyper vintage” in another guitar. None of the Railhammers wound up staying. I would say the best sounding is the Alnico Grande. The rest are hairline hot for what their description is, and can be kind of harsh...
