I just put one of these speakers in my sf champ also. Well worth the $$$.
The coolest thing is they are available in 3.2 ohm as well as 4 and 8 so you
get the original spec. Tone? Very smooth slightly fuzzy to way gone
distortion. I also added a 47/250 pf bright circuit and it pulls of the
sparkly ringing highs real well. Kind of expensive but if you dig noodling
around with the champ to see how much tone you can squeeze out of it I highly
recommend trying this spkr.


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 in the late 1990s. I accumulated more stuff than I remember. This is some of it.
