The G8C ceramic speaker will breathe new life into your small combo. Boasting a fair amount of low end for an 8" speaker and balanced mids, this little monster puts out some serious sound. We personally love it with the Fender Champ. If you are looking for vintage tone with increased headroom and output in a small package, the G8C is your speaker.
Thanks so much for getting another speaker in my hands so soon. My amp is a Sonic Pipe Tweedtone. A little 5 watt. Great amp except for the speaker, a Celestial 8/15 which sounds a bit thin and harsh. Your G8C lives up to the description, it has as much beef and fullness of tone as you could ever hope to get from an 8 inch speaker. Much smoother also, so now I have clean and dirt without the harshness. Thanks again for getting another speaker to me so fast.
Completed a 5F1 Amp build
This was the perfect speaker to complete my 5F1 Tweed Champ build. The finished amp sounds amazing with this speaker!
8" G8C - 20 Watts
Review of Snodgrass on 8" G8C - 20 Watts
What a difference in the sound of this little 70s Fender Champ
Right out of the box it had some weight to it with a bigger magnet.
The sound is thicker and meatier
My amp tech said he had tried many different speakers and this was the best bar none for the Fender Champ in a 8”stock speaker.
Simply amazing. Thanks
Review of John Allison on 8" G8C - 20 Watts
Received 1 day after I ordered. Had some buyers remorse cuz i thought it wouldn't make a big difference in my custom champ reissue. In fact i thought a ceramic just might not be the right replacement for the stock alnico. Holy guacamole batman was i wrong! Swapping out the speaker was mildly annoying but oh so worth it. Right out of the box this speaker sounds great. I liked the stock speak fine, but this is so much warmer with much better mids and low end. Get one. Enjoy it
