Secrets Revealed!

Hey ya all! This is so cool.   Last week I told you that I was eager to spill the beans on a new product I saw at WGS headquarters - well the wait it over!  Tell ya what ... just watch this video, and then read the rest of the blog.

Okay, so ... ya ready to hear how that oh-so-sexy speaker sounds?   Your wish is my command!

Well allrighty then, once again, WGS has done the impossible.  They made a smooth cone speaker that sounds all warm and fuzzy just like an old vintage smoothie would ... but that can handle 75 honest-to-goodness tube watts.  The ever elusive blues Holy Grail has just been found.

WGS plans to also offer the G12 in a smoothie, as well as the G10.  That’s seriously good news for harp players, and folks seeking old-school tweed blues tone.

So, next week is going to be a lot of fun ... and very interesting.  Remember my one of a kind 1-12 65 Bassman combo.  Go back and read that blog for a refresher.  Everyone who hears it wants to buy it - it just sounds that freaking great.  I’ve had a very cool 4 ohm Fane in it that I’ve been very pleased with.  However, I’ve been just itching to try some WGS models in that amp.  Well, the "WGS Custom Shop" granted my wish and made me up several 4-ohm models.  So, next week we’ll be pitting a rare, high dollar Fane against some of WGS’s best.  Interesting, huh?  Well then, Ya all come back.



Now a little after-thought ... last night I dreamed a dream of a new speaker that sounded like the vintage orange frame JBL/Fender D120F.  All warm on the bottom, and sparkley on the top with amazing efficency ... but maybe just a little more hearty than the old JBL's (way too many of those great old speakers have been blown and re-coned with inferior ribbed cone kits).  Then it hit me ... a smooth cone ET65!  Maybe even in that georgous orange color!!  Can it be done??  Well, that would be a job for the WGS custom shop.  Oh, by the way, did I mention that I'll be talking about custom speakers next week???  Man, I love WGS :).
