Changing your speaker will make the biggest single most dramatic improvement in your sound. At Watford valves we stock the drivers that can help you find the tone you are looking for.
ALNICO MAGNET SPEAKERS
Alnico magnets are made from a combination of aluminium, nickel and cobalt used to make the magnets. The speakers were common in amps made in the 1940 through to the late sixties. The Alnico speakers have a rich warm overdrive sound. They are famous for the early speaker distortion with touch sensitive response. They have a large dynamic range and long life with a bright tone.
CERAMIC MAGNET SPEAKERS
Ceramic magnet units tend to provide higher power handling at a lower cost than alnico magnet units. They produce a sound which is generally considered harder with more punch and aggression. They are considered less sweet than the alnico whist providing greater clean headroom.
NEODYMIUIM MAGET SPEAKERS
Neodymium magnet speakers offer the fastest cone response of any magnet material. The speakers retain some of the sonic benefits of the alnico magnets but offer high power handling with very low weight.
