Great Fender Combo Upgrade
I became frustrated not being able to get low volume crunch out of my Blues Junior III and my ES-335. Asked Sweetwater Engineer to help me sort through about six options that I was seriously considering of new amps, cabs, attenuators, replacement speakers, …. Mark suggested this Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" 65-Watt Replacement 8 Ohm Speaker. I couldn’t be happier. This speaker is much more efficient then my original Eminence Lightning Bolt speaker. Immediately I had to turn down my Volume and Master controls on the Blues Jr. amp, when I first tested it out with my old favorite amp settings. The Creamback made my cleans sound crystal clear and chimey. Now my pedals (OCD, PlimSoul, RC Booster-V2, …) give me the great crunch I was hoping for, even at low volumes. Where with the old Eminence speaker, it only gave me fuzzy mushy noise with my pedals, which is what started this whole replacement quest. I couldn’t be happier now with my Blues Junior and the ceramic Celestion Creamback 65w replacement speaker. It took me 15 minutes to change it out, with the help of a youtuber. My quest is all about the tone, and this Celestion Creamback does it for me. Thanks Mark, and thanks Celestion. Only wish Fender would have put this speaker in the Blues Junior originally. Great guitar speaker!
