The sound of hemp!

The Eminence Lil Buddy 10" 50-watt replacement speaker has clean and full tone. The Lil' Buddy is slow to break-up, but crunchy when driven. Smoother and less defined than many 10" guitar speakers, this lightweight American-made guitar speaker has a hemp cone and is great for jazz and blues.

        Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

        I put the Lil' Buddy 10" in my Fender Pro Jr and wow!!! I bought the speaker because the Pro Jr is a bit harsh on the top end and skinny on the bottom end. After reviewing Eminence's frequency chart, I was sold on the Lil' Buddy because of the flatter response from 1k-3k. I play funk/fusion music on a hollowbody and this speaker turned my practice amp into my small stage amp!

        Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

        Eminence Governor and Lil Buddy GTR spkrs.

        hello musicians...

        i address this review to those who CAN hear
        small differences, and who Dare to try different things...

        today, we took the epiphone Dot studio geetar, with
        the tiny vox ac4tv mini Tubes amp...to test out
        around 15 different eminence speakers !

        the above is based on the sweet, bloom sound of
        EL 84 tube... and that is what we aimed to get...
        a bit MORE than the internal 6 inch speaker,
        which is, actually, quite nice on its own too !

        but on the Backside, i saw a speaker connection
        for 16 ohms...

        conclusion first...

        I chose the Governor, AND the Lil Buddy.
        yes, a red and a blue...!
        we are gonna make 2 separate boxes, and allow
        series connection so they add up to 16 ohms...
        OR, be played individually at 8 ohms..

        there is Quite a difference between the above 2
        spkrs in sound, however, surprisingly, when
        Connected Together in series
        and played back with the above equipment IN CLEAN
        MODE, the sounds are simply AMAZINGLY accurate
        and Dream like ! can put one in a trance !

        so, GO ahead, and try out various eminence and other
        spkrs combinations too ... u will be surprised !

        the next bests, which i liked for the slow slow
        jazzy type , are :

        private jack

        so, ,there you have it
        one man's test results in a compressed form !

        thanks for reading and
        always have fun or Joy !

        Lil Buddy 10

        Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

        A great replacement speaker for the Epi Valve Special. More volume and much, much clearer tone. More and clearer treble, midrange and bass--lets you sculpt the tone much easier and gets rid of the muddiness the stock speaker brings.
