Don't have experience with anything but the WGS green beret as far as GB clones go, but I put two of them in a cab with two greenbacks. Sounds pertty much just like my other cab with 70s blackback 25s. The two cabs are identical Yamaha "b" style cabinets. I have a/b compared them, and run them together, and the WGS speakers perform excellently.
I have (4) Warehouse CL80s and (2) Green Berets. Before you get to far.....these speakers MUST be broken in before tonal judgements can be made. ... It depends on the speakers, but I dont' think I would personally dig the CL80 and Greenback mixture. Mixing different wattages is fine, providing your amplifier doesn't put out more than they can ...
Anyone using the Warehouse Green Beret? It currently has a G12H30 in it. I've tried my goto speakers like the 40/40 Tone Tubby, CV65 Emi, RF Alnico and Ceramic Emi's, and even a RWB's Emi. They all sound great, I like all of them, but I like the extra character of the Greenback and less throw or attenuation of DB's.
Have it narrowed down to the green beret 10 or the 10 inch greenback. WGS price is nicer that's for sure. Reactions: Roe. BluntForceTrauma Member. Messages 4,163. May 21, 2018 #4 Celestion G10N-40 is a nice sounding speaker and only runs about $69. Reactions: s360guitarist and ur2funky '59Bursty Member.

JB6464. The WGS Green Berets don't use the same size magnet as the OEM Celestion Greenbacks. WGS are 30oz magnets and the Celestion Greenbacks are 35oz magnets. That will slightly change the tones of the original speaker design of the Greenbacks because of the magnetic strength.
12" Green Beret - 25 watts. $164.99. $109.99. The 12" Green Beret™ guitar speaker brings crunchy cone breakup, growling bass, great headroom, and aggressive mids together better than any other 25 watt speaker. Upgrade for Celestion™ G12M Greenback™.
WGS green beret or Greenback for a 1 watt amp? Discussion in 'Amp Central Station' started by ColdEye, Jun 18, 2021. Jun 18, 2021 #1. ColdEye TDPRI Member. Posts: 52. Joined: Oct 12, 2015 Location: San Diego, CA. Deciding between the two for my Marshall 1 watt tube head. I have an empty mojotone 1x12 cabinet that needs speakers.
Greenback- ET65 - Greenback Greenback- Green Beret - Greenback The Greenback in these clips is Chinese that came in a Cobra Cab. I also have a Quad of Greenbacks that I bought in the early 80's and a pair of late 90's. They all sound... similar but different. I presently have the 80's Greenback quad loaded in a Splawn 4x12.
1,482. Do you have experience with any of the modern production greenback type speakers. There are lots of choices out there these days. Celestion, Weber, Mojotone, Scumback, Eminence, Warehouse, and others. I'm heavily leaning toward a quad of Weber C1225's. Reports over the years say that they are sweet sounding speakers with greenback ...
FWIW, I've got a Greenback in my extension cab and the G12H30 is the internal speaker in my C30. I love the combo, but I also realize that everyone has their own ideals about what the perfect tone is. Glad you're happy with the new speaker. I've heard a lot of great reviews of the Warehouse Speakers and the Green Beret particularly.
The Green Beret sounds like a broken-in Greenback to me. I'm sure there will be a break-in period, but it doesn't sound stiff in least. This speaker dramatically changed the sound of the amp, but I don't know how much of it is due to running the Green Beret at 16 ohms as opposed to running the Emi at 8 ohms.
WGS speakers to match greenbacks in a 4x12. As I posted I am looking to try a bottom/tor or X pattern in my 4x12 marshall cabinet. I love the classic greenback sound but I like the more modern sound too. I am looking for some 80's metal and 80's hard rock sound. I am using a soldano avenger 50 and a charvel with a Bareknuckle VHII bridge pickup.
Mr. Willy":64x8sben said: To me, it sounds thin, hard, stiff, cold. A good Greenback (broken in, from England, China, wherever) is gonna be warm, smooth, woody, rich, and complex. I understand what the poster is talking about. I had a quad of Warehouse Veteran 30's in my Bogner, but I missed the cut and presence of Vintage 30's, so I swapped 2 ...
