Hi Guys, The Gold should be ready to ship in late April or May. I may be biased, but we spent a lot of time on this and pretty much nailed the tone of the Blue, specifically a slightly broken-in Blue which is not a bad thing! Usually we're the first to build something, and then others will come along with a clone or a higher powered model in this case (and kudos to Weber, he does nice work!). This time was different....others built the higher powered model first and then we decided to step up once we saw the demand. I gig 3-4 nights a week and use Blues myself, so I'm just as anxious as you to try them! ;D
Celestion Blue- inspires Weber Blue Dog Weber Blue Dog- inspires Celestion Gold
I was being general in my statement and mentioned Weber because he builds some cool stuff. I did not intend to suggest that his product was the sole inspiration for the Gold.
I gotcha... Did not mean to imply that it was the sole inspiration, either... Just meant that it's sort of how your first post read. Ted's Blue Dog isn't exactly a replica of a G12 Blue, either. Either way, a higher powered blue is a *great* idea for guys who either blow them, or think they don't quite hold up at higher volumes. Very cool news for blue fans, and I'm sure Celestion has hit a home run with this one! Welcome to the forum, and thanks for taking the time to share the info!
I have got an Alnico Gold on order to replace the Black Shadow 90 in my Mesa cab. Was tempted to get the 15 watt blue to go with the Ghia but I suspect it wont take a Z-28! Really looking forward to trying it.

Hi Guys..... I didn't mean to leave you hanging!! The first two Gold's arrived at my house two weeks ago and they debuted with huge approval at the LA Amp Show. I suggest you ask someone that heard them there (for the "unbiased opinion), but the feedback was generally "whoa, it sounds like a Blue!". After the clean test, I cranked the amp and hit it with a OCD pedal (paint peeling volumes!). At that point the crowd was rather shocked to hear an Alnico that could hang with metal crowd! haha

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
