    any owners have some reviews or opinions?

    I'm curious as to the interpretations of glorious laid-back attack.

    I have one of these arriving shortly, to be installed in a Marshall 50 W JVM.

    I'm very curious as anyone else drinking the Kool-Aid on these?

    All the YouTube videos it sounds very good. almost unanimously excellent reviews.
    I do want some Kool-Aid.

    I've tried a couple of ceramic magnet speakers, and my opinion was the attack is too hard, I seem to have lost picking dynamics when I compared to some other amplifier speaker combos.
    The OEM is the Celestion G 12 bass speaker, it's basically slightly dull until you get into the extreme gain sections then it seems to work decent.
    currently have the Celestion G 12 H 75 W ceramic, it's an improvement over the OEM, but the string attack still feels quick and hard too compressed?.
    I play 60s 70s rock and blues, telecaster. Strat, PRS DGT, the orange and red channel on the clean are a 59 plexi and a JCM 800,remodels, just fantastic when I find the sweet spot,

    So I'm guessing the alnico cream may hit the extra sweet spot for me.

    I like the gold 50w. Not tried the cream.
    Hope you like it.

    Yes. I have the UK made Creamback in my DRRI. I think Robben Ford uses Creambacks.

    Got rid of the harsher ice pick top, smoothed and enriched the mids. I notice it most at volume when it just punches correctly in the band. At lower volumes less so.

    As a Brit I am possibly more attuned to that woodier mid rich tone.
