WGS G12C American Vintage 75w 12" Guitar Speaker 8ohm


Below is a review from www.tdpri.com
I recently put a WGS G12C in my Peavey Classic 30 combo, replacing the stock Blue Marvel. Right out of the box, the WGS sounded great, and really improved the tone on the amp. My Classic 30 used to sound like it had a big wet blanket draped over it, but not anymore. The sound is now very open, lively and articulate. The G12C is similar to a vintage Jensen, so it definitely has a Fenderish character, but there is enough warmth and bottom end to keep it from sounding too ice-picky, a problem that is often associated with the Classic 30.

I love what this speaker does with cleans, but I find it especially sweet when driven. It goes from a nice purr to a full-on growl, depending on how hard you drive it. I've been primarily using a Keeley Blues Driver for dirt, and so far the results have been very satisfying. The G12C is also very touch sensitive, so if you make a mistake, it's pretty obvious. In that sense, this speaker could potentially help you become a better player.

I have to give big props to Vaughn at WGS for the recommendation. If you need help deciding which of their speakers will work in your rig, Vaughn is a great resource and a hell of a nice guy.

So for what it's worth, consider this my ringing endorsement of WGS speakers, and the G12C in particular. When it comes to the bang for your buck factor in aftermarket speakers, you'd be hard pressed to find a better value out there.
