Valve Junior speaker swap.

Recommended Posts

I recently swapped the stock Eminence "Lady Luck" 12" speaker in My Valve Junior cabinet for a 20 year old Celestion Greenback. Now my Valve Junior sounds like a "real" amp. The Lady Luck technically gets the job done, but it leaves a lot to be desired in the higher mid range and treble end of the sound spectrum. Which, after all, is really what great tube tone is all about.

 

If you think your Valve Junior sounds like it has a wet blanket over the speaker, perhaps a speaker swap is in order. I just lucked out and happened to have a killer vintage speaker sitting around and collecting dust. I'm quite pleased with the mod.

I always found the lady luck to be too bright.

maybe I'd better put a cd player into the amp for some hours.
