I emailed Weber about a replacement speaker for my Gibson GA-5 RI amp. He said the speaker in there is the Weber Signature 8s rebranded a Goldtone. Well. they sell for $24US. off of Weber's web site. At least it is a good $24 US speaker.

It's just that the amp starts to break up around 9:30 and is in OD by 10:30. First gonna change the 12AX7 for a 5751 - 70% the OD and then more efficient speaker, like an 8F-125.

Anyway, I thought the speaker revelation was interesting.

Mojotone built these amps IIRC.

I should note that the breakup is with a humbucker axe. SD P90s start breaking around 10:30.

C-Terry - Thanks for the Mojotone info. It seems that if Gibson isnt building these things themselves, at least they are contracting them out to half decent builders.
