Just thought I'd pass on the message, which I read from another site, that they will be introducing their Greenback clones in about 3 weeks time.

I'm a big fan of these speakers, great quality too!!! When I swapped out my Sheffields from the 5150 Cab and replaced it with Veteran 30's (Celestion V30 clones made by Warehouse Guitar Speakers) and Celestion G12T-100, what a world of difference!! Love that combo and it was very resonable price wise.

WGS are located on Ebay if anyone else is interested.

Once again great speakers! For those Greenback fans, thought I'd pass the word.

Sweet! I might be interested.. my Greenback reissue have a bit too much grit. I will say that the two Sammi 50 watt speakers that are paired with them kick some major ass. [email protected] on the cleans but last I checked I wasn't wearing a skirt. Give me crunch any time of the day.

disclaimer: I like clean tones too. In fact the chinese made g12h30's are great for clean. I am in no way suggesting that you are half a man if you play clean.... just not 100% man ;)

I feel the need to point out that I am a real man, so that means I like the crunch.
Actually, I'm not so insecure that that is my only reason for posting...it'd be funny if it was. Actually, I'm wondering how you know if warehouse will be making alnicos? I wonder how much they would end up costing.

I have one of their V30s that I got on ebay for $22. Unfortunately, the seller didn't tell me and sent it UPS costing me an extra $37 on top of the $25 shipping. So, since the speaker ended up costing me over $80 in the end, I'm going to make sure I use it in the 2x12 cab my daddy is making me with a Private Jack (the governor is ousted for now).
Crap! I shouldn't have called my Old Man "daddy" when the point of this post was to prove I that I am a real man.

lol maybe I should try it.... buuuut then again, maybe I should wait until Marylin Manson asks me to tour with him. That way i'll make some cash on the side. So i wonder how good these greenbacks will be? M v30's sucked for me. And given your story about paying 80$ for one, well I am selling both mine for 85$!!

Haha! HEY! Are you taking a stab at my guitar!??!
$85 each, or for the set?
Are you not into the whole vintage 30 sound in general, or is it specifically these speakers you don't like?
I haven't really played with my unexpectedly overpriced one yet...it was sent home with my cabinet maker last weekend. I only merely made sure that it works. It'll probably be Christmas before the new cab is done (with the veteran in it). I think tolexing gave my dad nightmares, but he did a great job on his last cab, despite all the pain.

I'm selling the set for 85$. I guess am just not a V30 guy. They have an annoying upper frequency for me and they lack girth and bottom end. The greenbacks can be a tad fizzy as mine still are, but they 've got more "fat bottom" goin' on than the v30 clones. :smile:

I've got four of them for sale as well... not enough low end for me either. Good speakers if you like V30's... but they are not really my thing. Can't wait to try the greenbacks though.

So how much are you willing to sell two of these for? I'd like to finish off my second cab to have the same setup as my other one.

I've got some WGS available as I bought a bunch for projects but have not got round to them nor will I likely as health issues and such are making me rethink my gear situation .
I've got 5 of the V30's in 16ohm and 5 of the CL80's in 16ohm as well . I've also got 2 each of these in 8ohm too .
Excellent speakers for the money and I do think it's important to get these broke in proper before judging the sound . I use 1 of each in a DR. Z cab and after some use they sound excellent :banana:

If you know someone who lives in the US, bid on them and get them shipped there (they only ship to the US). They always have a set of these speakers for sale.

I think the cheapest I saw these go for were 50 or 60 for 4.


Oops just re-read what you were looking for, Classic 80. Ya they make a clone set of those.

I won't start a new thread since this is pretty recent, but here is what I have to say:

http://warehousespeakers.com/

A show of hands-

Who would be interested in being able to purchase these fine speakers right here in Canada for a reasonable shipping price? I have 1 of his speakers, and I think they are great and well worth the price. Have a look at his website and if anyone is interested in any of these speakers, PM or Email me and let me know what speaker, and what quantity. I don't know what kind of price yet, but we're trying to keep it very close to the price he's asking for them in the States. I'm trying to bring these up here and need to have some tangible numbers to give Dave in order to justify both of us trying to make this work.

I got 4 of his speakers waiting for me at home in Canada. I could see these being sold in Canada. Everyone likes a bargain.

Ya I agree, it's too bad I've ordered all I need... mind you that is a current statement, who knows what the future may hold
