One available on ebay for reasonable price. Just wondering how it compares to Celestion G12H30? Have one of those now paired with a Weber 30W Alnico Blue Dog, and like it. Just curious how the ceramic silver bell would match up!
Thanks for you input

The combination of a silver and blue alnico Weber is probably my all time favorite, it's really hard to beat. I have never worked with a G12H30 but would like to. Currently I have one blue and one silver each in their own separate 1 x 12 open back Mesa Boogie cab and they sound great by themselves or as a pair. I initially installed them in a 2 x 12 THD 3/4 closed back cab and they were killer in that configuration as well. I am too old and decrepit to lug a 2 x 12 cab around so it stays in the studio.

The Ceramic Silver seems to be a flatter response speaker, in line with a G12H30; but, the silver is smoother without the cone cry and occassional harsh top end you can get with a G12H30 (I love the G12H30, it's a fav speaker, but much prefer the Weber Ceramic Silver when looking for that kind of speaker coloring/response). The Blue Ceramic and Alnico tend to be a bit darker.
Lovely combo - Blue/Silver.
