    Hello everyone, I was curious to know if anyone has any experience with the Warehouse Guitar Speakers brand. I'm interested in upgrading a couple speakers in a couple different amps, namely the Fender Pro Junior III and Vox AC 4TV.

    for the Fender, this speaker sounded pretty good in the demo:

    Any comments would be very much appreciated!

    WGS are great, much preferred both I heard (g12c/s and vet30) in an amp to a celestian v30.

    Huge bang for the buck, and sound as good if not better than anything out there.

    I have the g12c/s in my 5e3 and the veteran 10 in my VHT special 6. Very happy.

    ET65, great prices and products. I'm saving my pennies for 2 Vet 30's. Plus I wanna build a112 cab, and it will have their take on the EV12.

    I just got a Veteran 30 for a 1 x 12 cabinet for a Bassman , and it sounds great.

    I recently saw a really good player and had asked about his amp. He was using a WGS speaker in his mid 60's Princeton reverb and was very happy with it. It sounded great in the audience as well. I'm sure his skill had something to do with it as well.

    I've used a few of their speakers in a few different amps and have always been very happy with them. All their stuff is well-made, and I think they're product lineup is nicely-laid out. Not confusing like Eminence or others can be. I've also been very happy with the customer service, excellent recommendations, and quick shipping. Highly recommended.

    I don't have any direct experience with their speakers, but I've been shopping for over a month now looking at loads of really high end amps.

    Lots of custom builders and small companies are using these speakers. That leads me to think they have to be pretty good. Why would you spare no expense on build quality, cabs, and components, and then stick a crap speaker in a $1500-$4000 amp? I've gotta believe they live up to the hype.

    10" G10C in my '68 Custom Princeton Reverb replacing the average stock Celestion. Very, VERY happy with this speaker and the tone it brings to a great amp. Broke in beautifully. Good folks, great speakers.

    I'm eyeing off the WGS black n blue Alnico to drop in a vox ac15.
    The greenback is nice but the alnico vibe in a vox is a killer.

    The WGS 12 C/S is the best 12 incher I've found.

    I love the two I have. I'm seriously considering putting WGS in my 4x12.

    ET 90 and a Retro 30 in a 2x12 cab under a JCM 800-styled head. Total classic rock sound all day long.

    Check their website for returns and b-stocks, or email them to ask what they have in stock like that. I got both my speakers for $60 plus shipping. You couldn't tell them from new when they arrived. Factory fresh boxes and packaging, not just the old stuff recycled. The ET 90 looked new, the Retro 30 had one small mark near one of the mounting holes that showed it was mounted once.

    Great company IMO and I'll be buying more.

    Interesting. They need more 15 inchers.

    I'm really happy with the G10C/G10CS combo in my '68 Vibrolux. Full and punchy, plentiful low mids. Seem to be robustly built, and the price is as right as it can be.

    I used to swear by Emi's because they were inexpensive, built in the US, and sounded great. WGS has taken that niche now that Emi has moved to China.

    I have 2 ET65's and a G12C/S and they both sound great. Much better than the stock Oxford speakers in my Pro Reverb. The ET65 is a great all around speaker. It sounds good clean and overdriven. I think the G12C/S shines on cleaner tones but also sounds good overdriven.

    Anyone have the 200W WGS12L? Sounds like something Mabley has checked out.
