Pure Gold Tone Quality

So after reading, reviewing, reading some more and reviewing many video's, Youtube posting on which speakers to put into my Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue, I decided to go with the Gold. Now then, having read that speakers can take 60-80 hours of "break-in" time to really bring out the full tonal qualities of a speaker, I was not expecting much. I play rhythm electric at our non-denominational church, using both boutique and non boutiquen pedals as well. I'm mainly a Strat and Tele player though I do enjoy the Gibson Les Paul and some Epiphone's in the mix. That said, I decided to break in the speaker at practice the other night. WHOA is all I can tell you!!! Even our worship pastor wanted to take a look at the amp and commented on the great tone I got out of my amp. I know this is one of the more expensive speakers out ther, but I didn't want price to be my deciding factor and sacrafice tone quality. To each his own on what they feel is the best speaker as it is a personal tone preference each of us looks for. I can tell you that I do not feel the slightest bit cheated on what I got for my money. I love this speaker so much that I got another for my Blues Junior and one for my 68 Custom Princeton Reverb. Plan to get a pair for my Vibrolux as well. The only draw back I ran into when installing was that the original Jensen speaker required and the Fender amp box had "eight" mounting pins. This Gold requires and only has four mounting pin holes. I thought I would take the tolex off to remove the mounting screws from the from which is under the tolex. Glad I checked before removing the stapled and glue tacked tolex from the board as I would not have been able to remove from the top side anyway. Thus after contacting a amp repair friend, he suggested I pinch the mounting screws off. I chose to saw them off which was super easy. HINT: Be sure to first mark the pins you need so you don't saw the wrong ones off. In summary; I would encourage anyone wanting a replacement speaker to do your research, know what tone you seek, what you play and really give this Gold a listen. I would also encourage you to save up if necessary and not sacrafice buying this speaker to save a few dollars if it has the tone you are looking for.

Best I have ever used

I've played Celestions for years and years - all types. Jensens, and Eminence too. Many are very very good speakers. However none of them sound like the Gold. It's just on a whole new level. I have single 12" open and closed back cabs for playing churches and out side with a PA. A Gold with a Beta 57 or Senn. E906 and you are dripping tone. All I can say is try it. Rock, modern worship (it excels!), country (Paisley demands them), blues (cf. Mayer) and the speaker sounds like it was made for each style to begin with. I personally think it's a step beyond the legendary Blue. Never harsh or cold. Always smooth, clear, warm, fat with amp gain and/or drive pedals. Excels with delays and reverbs too. In the end, I know they are expensive, but I'd rather wait and save for them than settle. Once you've used them, it's hard to go to something else. That's the only bad thing. But in this case, you really get what you pay for.Best speaker. Try it. You won't regret it.

Celestion Gold

It will more than likely get 5 stars after the break in. I'm using it with a Red Plate MDD in combonation with a WGS blackhawk and they sound great together. I also use it with my 65 Amps Ventura and it sounds great but needs to be broke in. It seems to have some chime and nice mids but not as flubby on the bass. A little tighter. It will work I guess.
