I'd like you told me where is the best place(reliable and cheaper) for buying a Celestion Alnico Blue.I have read somewhere they are Chinese made now so I'd prefer a UK made one.I am running my Mission Amps 5e3 tweed deluxe(head) through a 1x12 pine homemade cab with a Celestion Vintage 30 but I am pretty sure this amp needs an alnico speaker.
Any other recomendation is welcome(Fane,Weber.....)
Thanks you all for help.

Hi Luis,

What about these currently on UK ebay. I haven't heard the Fane version but I haven't heard anything bad about it either. Probably a lot cheaper too.

Celestion Blue

Fane equivalent

Thank you both Sun and Lee.
Sun,I have bought several things for my 5e3 fron Steve on Atique Electronic Supply and I was very satisfied,top notch service,but I have to pay more for shipping plus customs.I have asked Celestion distributor for US but he told me not to sell overseas.

Lee,what a excellent price for a Alnico Blu, and brand new!I have never hear a Fane loudspeaker,are on a par with Celestions?
But I have never bought anything from ebay,I don't know how it works.Anybody can help me?

Sorry Luis, I forgot that being on the other side of the big pond presents a major shipping problem and exspense. I dont know if Allparts uk. Sells amp parts and speakers but they might be able to help.

Hi.

Have you considered a Fane Alnico Axiom Blue speaker ?

Made to sound & look like an original Blue Bulldog, but can handle more power.

I use a single 8ohm in my 1x12 cab & it's superb. Cost me ?148 about 2 years ago.

Thanks G

Hi.

Try this link, then select drivers. The Axiom Blue is there.
Not sure of price now, but it was around ?148 when I got mine 1 - 2 years back. They take a while to play in, but mine sounds superb now.
Would go great with any head, or in a combo.
Matamp use them as their top spec driver.

www.fane-acoustics.com

Thanks G

Luis -

You might find that the alnicos don't sound so great with an American style tweed circuit...

Look into the Weber signature stuff or just a really efficient JBL.

YMMV

All Fender Tweed Amps originally came with Alnico Speakers.It's the sound of early rock n roll

Thanks Roe but Avatar in in USA and I have to pay VAT forn it.I finally got a VOX labelled blue alnico used in my country,I was lucky.I put it on my 1x12" DIY cab,my tweedy is a head(more comfortable to carry).I tested yesterday my "new" LS150 with a pair of Burstbuckers 1&2 and I can say it's a new guitar now.I love BB2(8,25k) at bridge,a lot of harmonics,it's the first time I use bridge position AND i LIKE IT....
