Tone heaven

Comments about Jensen Jet Blackbird 12" 100 Watt Guitar Speaker:

Id been hearing about these for over a year from some other guitarist friends of mine. Believe me, I wanted to get 2 for my cab but the price always made me hesitate. Finally picked up a pair. Definitely the best upgrade in sound Ive ever experienced. I get sounds from my amp I never even heard before. totally opened it up. much more dynamic Price is steep but Im glad i spent the money. worth every penny

Comments about Jensen Jet Blackbird 12" 100 Watt Guitar Speaker:

Picked up a used deluxe reverb on a trade. It was a bit too bright and hit its sweet spot around 5. After the Blackbird was installed, it was incredible. Outstanding low end and chime. Very articulate. Every volume level is now the sweet spot. Cleans up nicely now by rolling off the volume without getting muddle or muted. It makes the amp without a doubt.

    Comments about Jensen Jet Blackbird 12" 100 Watt Guitar Speaker:

    The Blackbird sounds great. I have an assortment of speakers and amps and I mix and match them. The Blackbird is a different 'flavor' with a unique voice. It's kind of dark/smooth and fat, with a relatively high resonant peak. It can handle 100W, which is atypically high for an Alnico. Lows are loose but you may not realize it because power handling is high. It's probably my second favorite speaker.

    I like it best with my 2555X and Mark V.
