OVERVIEW

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.

              Needed a replacement speaker for my Super Champ XD. The original speaker was fine at low volumes but pushing it made the low end farty. The Lil Buddy smoothed everything out at low and high volumes. The SCXD now sounds fantastic at all volumes. Smooth lows and mids and the high end is crystal clear with no harshness. It sounds big like a good 12" speaker. Highly recommended.

                    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!

                    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...
                    mmmm

                    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
                    tonespotter

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

                    thanks for reading and
                    always have fun or Joy !

                    k

                    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.
