Chances of this are slim in the extreme I know but if anyone has a 16 ohm Cream Alnico they'd swap for an 8 ohm do let me know. Ta

I like it although I must confess I find it's Alnico characteristics a little hard to discern. It has much in common with the Fane Axa 12 which I guess shouldn't be surprising given they have similar power handling and consequently probably similar components.

They both remind me of greenbacks in many ways but softer, with less edge and sound great with a cranked Marshall. I want to try pairing one with an H75 but they're only readily available in 16 ohm.
Might have to buy another and flick my 8 :thumbdown:

I like them also - clear, big bottom end and def on the softer side. Super sensitive also - I’ve had my 6w Supro punching it along nicely.
