Topic: Neodymium Speakers
I'm thinking about tearing my Traynor YCS50 apart, and making it into a separate head + cabinet. As is, the thing is just too heavy to lug to jam sessions, and I ain't gettin' any younger. It's an all-tube 50-watt amp section, so a 2x12 cabinet would be ideal. Instead of using the Celestion Vintage 30's it has now (12 lbs each) I was thinking of using Celestion Neo Creambacks, which are just 4 lbs each.
Do any other Chordians have an amp with Neodymium speakers? The notion of 8 lbs of speakers in total VS 24 lbs is very appealing, but only if they sound good. Any thoughts?
