Eminence Legend GB128 12" Guitar Speaker 50W 8 Ohm
Eminence Legend GB128 12" Guitar Speaker 50W 8 Ohm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eminence GB128Bought this as a replacement for the OEM speaker in my Fender Blues Jr. guitar amplifier. I have installed a number of Bill M. Mods in this amplifier and the OEM speaker just wasn't cutting it. This speaker is just st what the doctor ordered. Nice tight cleans at low volume yet it breaks up nicely without getting mushy at higher volumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good toneThey do have that British tone we all like. Handle wide frequency and sound great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all arounderVery much a GreenBack flavor, but not early break-up. Its very creamy and rich sounding... I love the versatility. Cleans are clear without being bright or muddy. The overdrive can go from a warm-clean sound to dirty and crunchy by giving the strings more attack, to full overdrive. Can't go wrong, its a jack of all trades. My setup: Peavey 2x12, Gibson Les Paul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine addition to round off my collection.I also have an EMINENCE V128 and a Governor in the cabinets I build. This GB's sound rounds out the collection. In a partial open back cabinet and a tiny bit of overdrive added to a tube amp, it has that "60's BEATLES" sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker!Great sounding British voiced speaker. Used with GB128 inacustom built sealed cabinet. Great blended sound! As with all Eminence guitar speakers, the tone vastly improves as the speaker breaks in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice in a mixI had 2 of these in a 2x12 cab. It sounded cool, but did not cut through with my band. Would probably work well for recording. I took one out and put in a Wizard. No more problems cutting trough. Real nice mix with those 2. Real nice
