Great in the Crate (V 18 112)

Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

As the title suggests, I bought this speaker for my 2 year old Crate V-18. Now I like this amp, but it did have it's flaws, the most prominent being the fact that it can be very muddy, as well as having almost no clean headroom to speak of. The only thing I could do for it was use a Bad Monkey Overdrive as a treble/gain booster, but this effectively eliminated ANY chance of a decent clean tone. I liked the dirty tone, but that's all it's got.I decided to try this speaker, and WOW, what a difference. With no other changes to the amp, it suddenly has a versatility it never had before. Turning the gain down actually results in a wonderful clean tone that isn't quite Fender and isn't quite Marshall, but is it's own lovely thing.Now, the biggest surprise is that this not only improved the clean tones, it also dramatically improved the dirty tone. Where before I had to dial in a touch of dirt with the amp and push it with the Bad Monkey, now I have a full and rich range with the Gain knob all the way up the dial. It didn't change what I liked about it, but rather what I didn't like about it. Kicking in the Bad Monkey simply gives it another useful voice now.Overall, the tone is tighter, a little brighter, and overall more useful and musical. The amp is still just a touch muddy, but now turning the bass down and the treble up actually DOES something. I suspect a change to good tubes will only make it better.I'm not gonna blow smoke and say it turned this amp into a boutique-quality amp, but it did take it up several notches up the tone ladder. I would not have thought changing just the speaker could make such a phenomenal change, but it did.Highly recommend the Eminence Legend GB 128

Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

This speaker was installed today in my fender hot rod deluxe limited edition wine red. The speaker that came with this amp was a celestion 70/80. My amp is like night and day! Best speaker I've ever used, and it's not even broken in yet! made in the U.S.A,. Made my hot rod's distortion come alive, and my amp's clean channel has that warm clean chime I've been missing. Wow!

    Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

    The Legend GB128 produces fantastic "metal" tones through my custom-made 2x12 cab. The lows are quite nice and the highs have a ton of definition. The sound is not muddy or muffled but crystal clear. No matter if I'm playing through my POD XT Live or the Orange Jim Roor head, my sound is far improved. I will be buying more Eminence speakers.

    I replaces a vintage 30 with this speaker. Wow. This speaker is awesome. I played first gig with this speaker in my 1x12 cabinet and the tone was awesome. I received nice compliments on my tone and this speaker isn't even broke in yet. Definately a great speaker at a great price. Eminence is the way to go. Buy American and be rewarded with a great product and great sound.

    Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

    This speaker is designed for heavyweight players, but priced for metal kiddies. Great sound: it's just like "the classic British sound..." wink wink - "G.B.", get it? - like it says in the description, but with more of everything, including volume, balance, and versatility. This speaker has plenty of definition and clarity, but it also delivers characteristic rockin guitar sound when driven. Highs are clear w/o a hint of harshness. Bass is muscular but not out of balance. Works great with open back cab. At present this speaker is a sleeper big time; it will be an all-time classic.

    AMP SAVER!

    Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

    I recently put one of these in my crate v18, and it completely changed the way i feel about this amp! The v18 sounded muddy and the eq was pretty much worthless. I couldnt tell a difference when I made a change. That is until I put the GB128 in. It really livened up the sound and allowed the eq to do its job. The original crate speaker was crap that looked like it was plastic coated. This speaker made all the difference in the world. If you have a v18 i definately recommend the GB128.

    Eminence GB128

    By Andy Curry

    from St. Louis

    Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

    I bought this one to replace a vintage Jensen C12R in my 1964 Gibson Falcon amp. Goodbye, icepick, hello balance. I like some "chunk" in my sound, and this speaker delivered that.
    Features? It's a 12-inch, 8-ohm guitar speaker. Solder/spade lugs.
    Quality, compared to what? I would not compare this speaker's build quality with a top-of-the-line JBL, Altec Lansing, Celestion, or ElectroVoice cast-frame unit, but it is very solidly built for its price point.
    You get a good speaker for the money.

        Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

        Great replacement for a Classic 30. Before this changeout the stock speaker didn't have enough bass- but it did have those "ice pick" highs that are typical with this amp. After the installation of this speaker those ice pick highs were gone. Bass response increased. This is the way I've wanted this amp to sound from the beginning. Smooth and glassy.
        No huge midrange bump. Yes you will have to take out the amp section and reverb tank to change the speaker out. Use the opportunity to spray deoxit on your reverb tank connections. That's where your reverb hum is coming from anyway. Components fit back in the amp just fine. And dont forget to put a dummy 1/4 plug in the speaker output to drop the amp to 8 ohms. It's cheap. Do it. More payoff than my JJ tube change on this amp. Don't want to use a dummy plug? Then go for a 16ohm Warehouse Guitar Speaker ET-65, but you'll pay more. This speaker is hard to beat at this price.

            I bought 2 of these for a Traynor YCV80. I tried just one in place of the stock Celestion 70/80s and it made a huge differnce. The speaker mismatch actualy sounded great so I sold the other GB12 to a friend. It really warmed up the sound a lot. One year later and no problems.

            Comments about Eminence Legend GB128 50W Guitar Speaker:

            I also have a Traynor YCV 80. This is a great amp but the stock Celestion 70/80's give it a lifeless sound. I bought a GB128 to try out and it made all the difference in the world. Because the speaker is 50 watts and the amp 80, the amp breaks up faster but still leaves plenty of headroom. The low end is rounded out and no longer cardboard sounding. I can actually use the drive channel; which I would absolutely avoid at all cost before. I'll probably by a second one to replace the remaining celestion. Excellent buy for at an excellent price!

              I bought two of these to replace a couple of blown Celestions in a Crate 2x12 that I have. I can't believe how amazing they sound. Cleans, bluesy breakup, 80s rock, and modern high gain, all handled with great articulation. I'm definitely buying four more of these to replace the Sheffields in my 5150 4x12.

It is getting better by the day as they break in more. I am able to hear audio at lower volumes and the tonality is far better, I have long been a fan of Eminence Speakers and even at this price point I am not disappointed

                    It has a great sound on the clean channel and a classic rock growl when over driven.
                    I have several varieties of speakers and the GB 128 has become my go to speaker. it is a great value!

                      After installing these speakers, I can say that I have found a very good and full sound in my 4x12. Not too shrill and not to bassy either. These are the best speakers for the money that I have come across. A 4x12 with 4 of these will absolutely sound amazing with a 50 or 100 watt tube amp. Mine is 50, but they can take much more. For the money, you will NOT be disappointed! They have hefty magnets and are quality made in the USA.

                      I was apprehensive about trying this speaker but all the positive reviews and low price made it irresistible to me so I bought one then another and glad I did. Our soundman commented that my GB128 loaded 2x12 sounded great and had that woody tone I've read others comment about. For the price it's hard to go wrong with at least trying them.

                          I have a PV Classic 50 410 that is too stinkin' heavy for me move around. I made a new baffle for a 1x12 and went on a quest to find the right speaker. This is it! I LOVE the sound of the PV 410s but I like this even more. Besides being lighter weight than the four the four 10" speakers, it also isn't as "beamy" sounding. Also a tiny bit louder and brighter, but tonally it's very much in the ballpark of the stock four x tens.

                          Time to install the grill cloth on the new bafflr and ROCK!
