The Jet City 20(JCA2112RC) by Soldano; She's Cheap & Loves to get Dirty

This week I'm comin at cha with another low-buck current production tube amp review.  Last week it was the Bugera V22, this week it's the very popular Jet City 20, this one is the JCA2112RC 1x12 combo with real spring reverb.  It's a cool amp to be sure, and the build quality actually appears to be quite good. However, if ever there was an amp crying out for a speaker upgrade, this is the one!  First, a big ol Vaughn-style review of the amp: Now, let's see how she opens up with a WGS Retro 30: All together now: "wow".  Right?  Looks like the Ret30 is...

About Vaughn Skow... what I am... what I am not...what Kindness Is...

Hey Tone-friends!  This is a rare mid-blog update.  I received a comment on last week’s blog from a fellow who shall remain unnamed.  I will paraphrase his comments (cleaned up a little and shortened): “What a crappy demo.  I’ve bought a couple of WGS speakers, but if I’d heard Vaughn play that crap first, I never would have.  His playing sucks.” I deleted his comment; we simply don’t tolerate rude, unkind, and downright mean folks around here.  I try to make it clear what my speaker demos are, and are not.  But in case you missed it: They...

Bugera V22 Amp - Great Tone at a Great Price!

Hey fellow guitar tone addicts!  This week I get to review the Bugera V22 all tube amp.  This inexpensive lil amp has been really impressing me, maybe you’ll be impressed, too!  I’ll also feature a speaker shootout between the V22’s stock speaker and the WGS Blackhawk.  Truth is, the V22 sounds so great that I’m not sure the Blackhawk will make that big an improvement.  Only one way to tell ... let the demo begin!  This vid starts out with a thorough tone demo of the V22, then the speaker shootout.  Once again, the short answer is: YES!...

WGS Blackhawk Alnico Speaker in a Tweed Fender Deluxe Amp

Hey fellow toneaholics!  This week I get back to some long awaited (hopefully) speaker comparison videos.  I’ve been just dying to try a Blackhawk in my ol’ tweed Deluxe; she’s a Hurricane Katrina survivor, and when she found her way to me a few years back, the original speaker was long gone.  The electronics had been completely re-worked to utter perfection by Mike Clark, but the speaker (from a 69 Deluxe Reverb) just wasn’t tripping my trigger.  So, I tried literally dozens of speakers and finally settled on a Modern Fender-branded Alnico model.  It didn’t...

WGS Custom-Shop Speakers Looking Marvelous!

Wow, wow, and wow!  First off, thanks to all of you who chirped in to congratulate the custom speaker winners.  That shows some real class.  I can only imagine that you ALL really hoped to win a free custom speaker, but yet there were almost no cases of sour grapes, just gracious congratulations all around.  That’s awesome.  Okay, so, this blog was going to highlight the results of a speaker shootout I just did with my ’59 tweed Deluxe; which left me saying "wow" ... but ... then I received pics from Dean of the first "WGS Custom Shop" speakers as they near...

WGS Awards Free Custom Guitar Speakers!

I’ll state the obvious once again: WGS customers are a cut above the rest; my latest contest proves this in spades!  In my blog four weeks ago, I asked you all to design your custom dream-speaker and then explain why you chose the components you did.  Of the 150 or so entries, almost all were truly stellar. Wow, you all know your stuff; given your styles and tone objectives, you all made some great choices, backed up by sound reasoning.  It was insanely difficult for Dean, WGS production manager, to pick just one that stood out head-and-shoulders above the rest.  And...

Meet Jenna, one Super Sexy Custom Strat

I just celebrated a birthday; and I bought myself a present ... a Strat like none other.  This beauty, Jenna, was custom crafted by Bobby Clark of BC Customs.  She’s not just a looker, either; she’s most definitely a player!  So, let me tell you all about this new gal of mine.  Her classily curvaceous body is made of Swamp Ash with a stunning quilted maple top, which gives her a very pleasant, resonant natural acoustic voice.  The Neck began its life as a 50’s "road-worn" that was scraped, sanded, and finished in nitrocellulose; the result is a neck that...

WGS Folks: as Cool as WGS Speakers

Ya’ll are awesome!  I have came to that conclusion after reading the entries from my current speaker give-away contest and checking out the latest posts on the Q&A forum.  I’m sure you have noticed that often on guitar related forums many of the posts sound like they were written by a totally ignorant 12 year old; complete with a bunch of choice swear words just to drive home the point.  However, you, the WGS folks are different!  It is said that good people attract good people; I think this is the case with WGS.  As far as the contest entries go ......

About Magnetic Attraction ...in speakers...

Happy Valentines day ya’all!  A perfect time to discuss magnetic attraction.  Surly you all know that magnetic forces are what actually enable a speaker to "speak".  In a nut shell, a variable electro-magnet (the voice-coil) operates in a permanent magnetic field (provided by the magnet you see on the back of the speaker). At this point I feel it is only fair to warn you that the relationship between the voice-coil and the permanent magnet is a tumultuous one.  For as you know, magnets not only have the power to attract one another, they can also repel; the varying...
