I've had a Scumback M75-PVC (very low power-handling, at a delicate 20 W or less) in my M12 combo forever, and it's so perfect with that amp that nothing can beat it. I A/B'd it against the G12 Blue and even liked this good ol' Scumback pre-rola GB clone even more. For cheaper bucks, I'd suggest the basic/Chinese-made Celestion Greenback or the WGS Green Beret.
Own or have owned: M12, Carmen Ghia, Rx JS, MAZ 18 Jr NR, Monza, Z-28, Route 66, Therapy, DB4, Remedy, Prescription, EZG-50, SRZ-65 LE, & Delta 88 Z-Drive | Brake Lite SA & Air Brake
Im using one in a 1/12 Mesa Boogie cab with a Marshall 2061X. It sounds excellent its real vintage sounding real warm and articulate. I had a few Golds as well. The Alnico cream is more like the blue then the Gold. I almost went with a Creamback but decided to give the alncio cream a shot. No regrets at all. It is a awesome speaker. It sounds great clean and overdriven also takes pedals very well. Even fuzz pedals .
Although I've not tried the Alnico Cream, after experimenting with lots of speakers in my M12 combo, including the Blue and Gold, I settled on the G12 Neo Creamback. I couldn't be happier, but sorry that I don't know how it would compare to the Alnico.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
