Combines the Best of Two Popular Eminence Speakers

Note: Speakers are non-returnable.

Grammy Award-winning producer/guitarist Pete Anderson worked with Eminence to combine characteristics of his favorite speakers into a single 12" speaker, and the result is the Hempdog 12. Boasting the warmth of Eminence's Cannabis Rex speaker and the neutral clarity of the Legend EM12 speaker, the Hempdog 12 delivers high-fidelity tone for a variety of styles. If you came to Sweetwater for a great-sounding replacement speaker with high power handling, you'll be well served with the Eminence Hempdog 12.

Fabulous speaker

This is an outstanding speaker.I replaced a very good sounding WGS Veteran 30 that came with a Suhr Badger 30.This speaker makes the amp sound much better.It sounded great out of the box and is not yet broken in.I waited until I gigged with it a couple of times before I reviewed it and it really cut through the mix at an outside gig.Just great tone.I have many kinds of speakers,JBLS,Altecs,Webers,Celestions,Jensons ect. and a vintage EVM12l.It sounds as good or better than all of them including the EVM12l.Eminence seems to be making great speakers as I use one of their commonwealths in my deluxe reverb.

Major adjustments.

I completely agree with the first person who reviewed this speaker; fat, warm and clear is arguably the best description anyone could give. That being said, I'll try to break down what I feel are some pros and cons. Cons: It's physically large enough that I had to take the reverb tank out of my Mesa Electra Dyne combo just so it could fit. Fatter sounding, less articulate pickups and amps will struggle with the HD (unless that's what you're going for; I personally had to switch pickups to accommodate the heft this speaker produces). It's bloody heavy!!!! Pros: Easily the sweetest and most high fidelity speaker I've ever laid ears on (seriously, it will give you pause). It doesn't care how much volume I throw at it, it will keep its act together nicely (granted, I'm only able to hit it with 90 watts). Very subtle and pleasant breakup at higher volumes. Built for war. Very, very, very efficient. Any single-coil pickups will sound a few hundred pounds heavier and still be snappy/jangly. Any humbuckers will sound downright gargantuan and punchy. It keeps sounding better the longer I play through it.

Fat Warm and Clear

The HempDog has the edge for rock but gets those bell like cleans real nice for jazz. Cuts through in a blues bar, or purrs like a kitten in a Jazz bar. Tone is true to the gear. One is all you need. That's my experience. The funny thing is I went to light weight SS amps but like this heavy speaker. Go figure. (Used with 6 string guitars typical Jazz and/or Rock/Blues configurations)

Replacement speaker for Fender Deluxe

This speaker should have come with the longer screws needed to attach it to the front of the amp! A quarter inch more beef around the circumference of this replacement. I had to travel 5 miles for a quarter inch more screw! Unless you live next door to a hardware store, it's gonna piss you off! You're all excited about upgrading your amp but it surely disappoints when it doesn't just drop right in. So after your trip to the local hardware store, you finish what should have been a 10 minute task that has turned into an hour, and finally get to plug in. Yes, it sounds wonderful and airy and kind of like a warm hug. It probably would have sounded a lot better had I not had a side order of attitude!
