The mojo Mp10R is a real good choice. It’s made by Eminence, and is
very similar to the stock blue frame. Difference lies in the voice
coil former. Mojo is Nomex(treated paper) Fender is Kapton (polymer)
Fender has better power handling, but sincew ya got 4 speakers
dissapating the wattage, it’s not that big a deal..I suspect that
Fender opted for the higher wattage unit to head off any possible
blown speaker claims. I’ve found that many folks prefer the Mojos
sound to original jensens. A real Jensen has a very crisp brassy sound
that can sound harsh to people weaned on Celestions, Eminence and
Oxfords..Mojos have a stronger midrange component that sounds
“warmer”. Also, be careful should you opt for the original P10R/Q
route. I think it’s safe to say that a 30-40 years old speaker is
gonna be prone to failure..If the intended application is a gig amp,
Be warned.

There’s another difference between the Mojo MP10R and the blue Eminence
Fender uses. The Mojo runs their magnets below saturation flux. This
mellows the tone a bit at the expense of efficiency. The blue Eminence
have saturated magnets. How the hell do I know?? I discussed this in
detail with Nate at Mojo.

Both are great. The blue Eminence sound very nice once they’re well
broken-in. The Mojos are sweet nearly from day one, much shorter break-in


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I began collecting data about the microphones used by blue harp players before there was an internet. I began organizing it into JT30.com in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
