just curious if there was any plans for a 10" version of the green beret

I'm a fan of the 10" speaker ... especially in groups of four or two.  I usually play my Marshall 3203 through a 1965B cab - which is a sealed-back 4-10 ... and my most beloved amp is my '67 4-10 Super Reverb.  With the G10's and the Vet 10, WGS has a history of making some really great sounding 10" speakers.  I own a pair of the Celestion Vintage 10's ... and they actually really sound quite awful.  I have not yet heard Celestion's 10" version of the Green Back (it's made in China, right??) ... but I'll just bet WGS could make a better sounding Britt ten.  I'll add my voice in support of such an endeavor!

yeah i love 10 inch speakers and the green beret (and celestion counterpart to an extent) just sound great to me especially in lower wattage amps(30 watts and under)

Apologies for the necro-bump, but any chance a 10" Green Beret is any closer to reality?

I got a chance to listen to one last time I visited the plant.  It was only a quick listen, but I thought it sounded as good as the Celestion, but Daniel & Dean were not satisfied ... I guess "as good as" will never satisfy any of us!  So, anyway, I can confirm that it is something that is actively being pursued; I can't imagine it being too terribly long before they are deamed "ready to wear the WGS name".
