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.

roscoenyc: Whenever I see the phrase "clean pedal platform" I'm filled with sadness about the real tube amp joy that could have been.
