    Just what the Doctor ordered

    I had been contemplating getting a tube amp and hanging up my mid 2000's Vox AD30VT Valvetronix amp. It's a pretty decent amp but it just lacked warmth and articulation. I really wanted a full tube amp and not just a hybrid. After reviewing prices of new tube amps, I decided to try the upgrade path to first.

    I decided on getting the G10 Greenback and also upgrading the single stock 12AX7A power amp tube with a Mesa/Boogie 12AX7A. Man, what a difference! I know the speaker isn't even broken in yet and I did also change out a tube in the process, but the sound difference was immediate! Amazing clarity and warmth compared to the no name stock speaker. All aspects of the tone were enhanced and smoothed out. It used to sound slightly hollow where now it has a big sound.

    This speaker was originally on backorder but shipped immediately upon arrival. Jared Madigan, my sales engineer, kept me informed along the way. Sweetwater, as always, prepared the packaging as if it was getting it ready for a moon landing.

    If you are on the fence about this speaker or debating an upgrade, do yourself a favor, click "Add to Cart", immediate go to checkout, enter your info and prepare for tonal bliss!

    It is exactly what you expect ... plus more

    I have this speaker in 2 of my amps, Fender '65 Super Reverb reissue, Vox AC10c & now in my beloved '66 Vintage Fender Princeton Reverb. No flabby lows and all the mid-range & treble the amp can give. You WILL NOT be disappointed by these speakers.

    I put two of these in a 2x10" Closed back Tremolux style extension cabinet. The Cabinet is powered by a Custom Vibrolux Reverb which is Open back and has 2x10" Jensens.
    I plug my Gold Top Les Paul with P-90's straight in. Incredible Tone!

    Works for me.

    Got two in the mail today, installed them in an old amp, a Peavey Transfex, a solid state tube simulator. Replace the two 12" heavy speakers with two 10". The sound is great, I get to keep my stereo effects, the weight is a lot lighter, which was the only downfall that I had with the original amp. Plugged in my Les Paul and total Sweetness. Can't wait to take it out and turn it loose. Thanks Sweetwater.

    Great sounding speaker. Got two of these babies as replacements in an map. So much definition, tight bottom and focused mids. Probably the best 10 inch speaker I've used in 25+ years of playing guitar.

    Fantastic Speaker Upgrade!

    I put this in the new 68 Princeton Reissue amp and holy cow what an improvement. The low end and depth are dramatically improved. Improved headroom too. Compared side by side with the stock speaker, I feel Fender is doing a huge disservice to this amp by not shipping it with a Greenback as stock. I can't tell you enough on what a HUGE improvement it is!!!!! And of course, Sweetwater provides the best customer service around!!

    We'll I upgraded my fender frontman 25r amp with this greenback , the orig. speaker that came with the fender amp that distortion was much better than the greenback , BUT the sound of the greenback is much clearer and so much bigger , you can hear the low ends so nicely , I love the greenback 110% but I love the orig speaker too , if
    I didn't have a choice I would pick the greenback for sure though

    Not for Solid State Amps

    I have just recently swapped out speakers in two Fender Solid State Amp combos with high price Celestion speakers: one being the
    G10 in a Fender 1X10 combo unit. I would highly recommend not doing this, as the G10 comes across as
    muddy and requires more drive to bring it out. You also lose the crack of the stock Fender 10" speaker. This was only a
    test to see what I would get, and the G10 always has a home in one of my tube combos.
    When trying to find information on replacement speakers, it seems all you get is glowing reviews of how good the high price speaker sounds, and NEVER a dissenting view which gets to be very frustrating if you are just looking to upgrade the cab a little.
    With this said, I hope this NOT SO GLOWING review can help someone else out there thinking of upgrading his 1X10 Sold State Combo.

    Yes, it's a little muddy

    I compared both the standard Fender speaker (made by Eminence) and this G10, and the difference is huge. Anyhow, I can't tell you the G10 is an improvement over the stock speaker. In my Super Champ X2, the G10 sounds full bodied, but muddy, laking of shine. There is now way to restore the single coils sparkle by tweaking the eq.
    It looks like the G10 can withstand the loud overdrive beat with a little more stamina than the Fender one, but if you are in the clean, glistening side, you may not like the G10.
    In the deep side of matters, the bass in the G10 is very full and round. The mids sound hi mid rolled down and kinda vintage.
