    I saw this cream back 25 watt vintage Celestion for sale for $25 on my local CL. O offred $20 and the seller accepted. Although it's labeled 16 ohms, it read 6.8 when I picked it up. Not a problem for me as it's an obvious recone and the reading was stable. Passed some sound from a cable I made connected to my iPod.

    Totally missed the long slice from the dust cap to the surround.

    Got home and discovered it but, for $20 bucks what do you expect. Soldered it into my cab and tested it with my EmerySound SuperBaby. It works fine but with higher gain, it sounded, how to say, a little fizzy.

    I watched some YouTube videos on how to repair a ripped cone and broke out the gauze and Elmers glue.

    I've yet to see what the effect is but, I have options.

    1. Play it as is and just be happy.
    2. Buy a recone kit and do it myself
    3. Pay $99 and have Jim @ Scumback recone it as an M75.

    Who knows but, regardless, this is my form of entertainment!
