Heya TDPRI hive mind, following up on my last amp-related thread, I've now got a 6G3 clone being built. However, I've asked the builder to do it up without a speaker, so that I can have more time to figure out what I want to use as the voice of the amp. Given the fact that I most strongly associate the 6G3 with ZZ Top's first 3 albums, I was wondering what might get me as close as possible to that tone, but with a bit more low-end thump and girth. I'm hoping for a gritty but deeper guitar tone overall. Naturally, I'll be playing my Telecasters through it, but I also use semi-hollows and a Gibson Nighthawk. I know that most of you guys have your own preference, but for my purposes, I am going to be using the amp's natural distortion; as in I'll turn up to the club, dime the volume and ride the guitar's volume knob. I'll be hoping for speaker recommendations through that lens, as compared to having the amp being used as a clean pedal platform. Here are some basic specs I have in mind: - 12" speaker diameter - not fussed whether it is ceramic or alnico, but max speaker depth is 7" - 8 ohms - >50 Watts RMS - Sensitivity above 95db I already have a few in mind: Celestion Gold Celestion Creamback Eminence Swamp Thang Eminence Texas Heat Eminence CV75 Weber Alnico Silver Bell But let's see what you guys can throw up for consideration, or if you want to out in your vote for any of the speakers I have short-listed thus far, please do so!
