It was a comment from a poster to a thread that I posted recently that led me down the garden path on Google. Low and behold, the majority of threads and comments, many of them would be considered ancient zombie threads if I had replied to them, were from TDPRI, not The Gear Page. I'd like to know what you think are the best reissue speakers, for creating that sound that was defined as classic, in what ever amp, and why you think that is the cat's meow? From what I've read, many people chime in with a near religious ferocity on why so and so reissue is crap, etc. You read a little further, and many other people chime in with a whole lot of other observations. The major, old school brand names seem to take the biggest pounding, Jensen, Celestion, to name two. From what I've read (and heard), it seems totally unfounded. Some people speak in definitive terms, as to what is a "real" 65' sound and not. Were you there to hear a real 65', brand new, in such and such speaker? And even if you were, how do yo know you sn trust your memory on sound? Human memory on sound is weak at best. That is scientifically proven. It is noting like our memory on sense of smell, taste or touch. We cannot compare a 50 year old OME piece of equipment to a new reissue, regardless of the manufacture. Oh, and let's leave country of origin out of this, please.
