Electric guitars, guitar amplification, and the birth of Rock-n-Roll in the 1950's collectively established a new use for loudspeakers. Speaker choices were limited in those days and amplifier manufacturers had to purchase products that were common to other applications. Usually, this meant a low-power speaker, often with an Alnico magnet, and limited cone and coil travel.

Due to the nature of the speaker's construction, the sound of the guitar and amplifier combination was impacted by the speaker design. Amplified guitar was a bit more aggressive duty than most other speaker applications at the time and the speakers were frequently challenged in terms of their mechanical movement and linearity. Guitarist learned how to control this non-linearity and use the resulting tonal characteristics to their advantage. Speaker break-up became cool and was a desired feature by most guitarists. The great guitar tones we know now are a result of those events.

Although there are a multitude of distinctive guitar speaker tones available today, they can be broken down into two main categories. We have Marshall and Celestion to thank for the distinctively "British tones" that we are so familiar with. Fender, Peavey, and SLM (Crate/Ampeg) worked with speaker companies like Eminence, Oxford, CTS, JBL, and Electro-Voice to establish tones that are distinctively "American".

Eminence is proud to present the Patriot™ and Red Coat™ series of guitar speakers. Incorporating both British and American cone technology into speakers that are manufactured in the USA gives us the ability to provide you with virtually any tone you desire. Be it British or American, clean or dirty, big bass or screaming highs, we have a speaker that will allow you to "Pick Your Sound".

Eminence Patriot Swamp Thang 12" Guitar Speaker 150W 8 Ohm
Eminence Patriot Swamp Thang 12" Guitar Speaker 150W 8 Ohm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eminence "Swamp Thang"I build tube guitar amps as a hobby and just finished a 5D8 Fender Low Power Twin amp. I wanted to go with Jensen speakers and actually ordered a set of C12N speakers for the amp from another company. I installed these speakers and to be blunt, they sounded awful, Another amp builder I correspond with told me he uses the Texas Heat in his Deluxe clones so I figured I'd try the more powerful Swamp Thang in my Twin. Boy does this speaker sound great! It has plenty of clean headroom, but when pushed, it breaks up at about the same time as the low power Twin's output stage does. Both move into a slight overdrive that is nice and smooth. This speaker has nice highs, just enough midrange bite but not enough to cause the usual ear fatigue of other speakers. It also has a substantial bottom end which is a real plus in the Tweed Twin's open back cabinet. In the low power Twin (these are only around 30 watts with 2 cathode bias 6L6's) this speaker is efficient enough to offer up a good amount of clean power before break up. But it isn't so loud with these speakers that you can't get that nice cranked "Tweed Fender" sound in a small club. Before you plop a ton of cash for questionable vintage drivers, you owe it to yourself to try these things!
