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!

        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!

            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!!!!
