I looked at the Cream and the purple haze pretty hard! What do you think of them seperately? Not mixed i mean?
I would take the Cream Alnico into battle, it is more utilitarian. It gives a clean amp a little jangle and sounds marvelously British as the volume goes up.
The Purple Haze has been impressive but I have been running the Z-PLus with the mix. I'll play the PH only this evening and give it a good analysis.
My initial take on the Purple Haze is this: A warmer 40 Watt Alnico than the Celestion gold. Now that I think about it, it is probably similar to the speaker that Celestion is going to release soon. I will play it this evening again as stated.
The Purple Haze is a fantastic speaker, I have yet to find a bad sounding Tone Tubby. Full boat price is unrealistic for my habits, I bought mine for $225 I believe which was a good price compared to others.
I have 3 Cream Alnico's and they are all serving different purposes.
I have a 2 x 12 slant cab with Cream and V-30 Outstanding I have a 1 x 12 open back cab that holds my Deluxe Reverb and it is the Cream Alnico
and I used it with all of my Maz amps.
I like the little sizzle jangle it puts on a clean tone, but I'm in California and we are all whacky. BTW, we pronounce it Mauz in California . Irreversal would back me on that if he was around.
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.

The Bad Poodle: What cures tube SHAKE and tube RATTLE? A tube ROLL?

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.
