OVERVIEW

Pure vintage!

The Eminence Legend 1258 Guitar Speaker has vintage American growl, but with sparkle, definition and edgy top-end. Great for rock and roll, country, and blues. This Eminence speaker is an ideal vintage alnico Jensen replacement.

Eminence recommends the Legend 1258 Guitar Speaker as a direct replacement in the Basson B412 cabinet, and the Fender FM212R, Fender Blues Reissue, Fender Blues Junior, and the Behringer V-Tone Gmx212 combo amplifiers.

    Comments about Eminence Legend 1258 75W Guitar Speaker:

    Upon initial installation of the 1258 I found the high mids just a little harsh. It was a little brighter than I had expected but I knew it was an Americna (Fender) voiced speaker when I bought it.
    After about 2 weeks and a few loud jams to break it in the harshness dissappeared and man did it sound sweet.
    I combined it with a British (Marshall) voiced Private Jack and man do I hear the harmonic resonanse I was hoping for.
    Couldn't be happier.

      This speaker has a real good overall sound for a nice warm clean and cuts through when pushed. It works well for Jazz and Rock. Versatile

        I put these speakers in my 2x12 extension cabinet and they made my sound much fuller. Great sound and value for the price!

        Great tone and value

        Comments about Eminence Legend 1258 75W Guitar Speaker:

        The Legend 125 significantly improved the tone of my Traynor Guitarmate Reverb when it replaced the stock Marsland speaker. Well-balanced response and tight bass make it a great value in this price range!

        Pros

        • Bright and tight!
        • Improves Sound

        Cons

        • Not if you looking to mellow your amps tone

        Best Uses

        • Chunky overdrive, 80s-90s punk and postpunk

        Comments about Eminence Legend 1258 75W Guitar Speaker:

        I've been using a pair of these for 6 years, for different heads, amps too.
        Really powerful tight sound, I love em.
        However, with a silver stripe Bandit 112 they were too bright/harsh. It's because the Bandit is just too bright and harsh, I had a very hard time tweaking an overdrive distortion I liked from that amp…sold it. But I'm keeping the Legend 1258s, they make every other amp I've had sound great!!!!

        I have a 4X12 cabinet that I loaded with these babies, and I couldn't ask for it to sound better!
