Hi Shaun,

I think the ratings are about the same as for the 12’s. If you need
to confirm wattage specifically for 10’s, I’ll have to dig a bit deeper.

According to my notes:

P12-N == 18 watts 1957 price: $52.50
P12-P == 16 watts $33.60
P12-R == 12 watts (says 6-8 ohms) $16.50
P12-S == 10 watts ” $14.75
P12-T == 9 watts (only avail in 3-4 ohms? Not sure) $13.60

(I think the info was originally from Dan Schoo. Thanks, Dan)

1957 prices on the P12-N were pretty severe! I wonder how that
would translate to 1997 dollars. Anyone know?

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.
