The 10” Veteran™ speaker from WGS® has great, crunchy cone breakup when pushed and touch sensitive cleans with warm overtones. Sporting a 1" voice coil, seamed cone and 18oz magnet, this speaker is loaded with vintage mojo. Whether you are looking for fat, punchy cleans from your low powered combo or vintage American style breakup from your 4x10 the 10” Veteran™ will deliver.
This is my 2nd WGS speaker. I put the 10 inch Veteran in a 5f2a Tweed Princeton style build and I couldn't be happier. Thanks WGS.
Review of Ryan S on 10" Veteran - 20 Watts
I built a custom 1x10" cabinet for a '78 Fender Vibro Champ that I picked up a while back. After some research, I decided that the Veteran 10 was right for what I wanted to hear out of it. I put the speaker through a 40 hour break-in process (that played while I was at work during the week!) and by the next weekend I was ready to let it rip. I was loving the sound with my Strat and my ES. It was exactly what I wanted, clean, until I wanted to crank it for some dirty. This last week, my daughter decided to give a whirl for some 60s and 70s rock with her Les Paul. Man, it was like angles singing. I have never heard a better tone in person. Seems like I'm going to lose this amp and have to start my search over again (more WGS to come). The sound samples are pretty darn close to what I was hearing with my setup. If that is what you are looking for, the Veteran 10 will not disappoint.
Review of E_MINOR_PENTATONIC on 10" Veteran - 20 Watts
I got these (4) to replace a 1969 jensen 15 inch in an early Fender Concert Brownface. I waited a while to make the change and thought I would try them in other fender amps. I compared them to aome original jensen p10rs and the difference is subtle but can be heard. These seem a little less harsh than the Jensens (although the Jensens are not harsh). Maybe creamy is a better way to describe it. However, it's not drastic. The breakup happens a little earlier with the Veterans, but in a pleasant, light, responsive way. This is excellent for the 4x10 setup in the Concert. The difference from the 1x15 to 4x10 is dramatic. The 15 moved air in a different way and made for more bass response and the Veterans still have good bass response, but in an way more suited to guitar. The 15 would probably work better with a slide guitar or keyboard. The midrange is better for the guitar and is where that creamy sound excells. The highs are bright, but not harsh and definitely sound fender in the Concert. I researched these on YouTube and decided on them from several different videos. The videos do give an idea of comparison but fall short on showing the quality of the sound produced by these speakers.
I'm very happy with them and would buy again.
Shipping was great and packaging was excellent.
Review of Ian Hodges on 10" Veteran - 20 Watts
Lucked into an original 65 Fender Princeton - the original speaker was blown, this is a perfect replacement/upgrade speaker. Wattage is just right, handles all of the power and remains touch sensitive and responsive. Sounds great at low volumes at home, and even better cranked up on a gig. This is the second Warehouse Speaker that I have purchased - they are really great in terms of price and performance. Highly recommended.
Review of Tj on 10" Veteran - 20 Watts
Okay, bought a mint, all original 1978 Silverface Princeton last year. Sounded good but low end was flubby when cranked and it just wasn't right. Bought the Veteran because of affordability and other positive reviews about this combination. Oh my gosh! It is a match made in heaven. Cleans are pristine and exactly what you expect from a Fender. Push it with an OD or Boost pedal and it turns into an animal and it stays tight even when the amp volume is dimed. As another review stated, buy this speaker, you won't regret it. Well done Warehouse.
