NEW SPEAKER IN THE HOUSE
Several weeks ago, we got a gift from The Misanthrope.
The gift was a Randall Isolation Box, which is a nifty contraption that allows you to crank up your guitar amp and not blast your neighbors, bandmates, or cat through the wall. Even better, it allows you to cut basic tracks at the same time as you do your drums without the amp bleeding all over the other mics.
Dave advised that the speaker was likely shot, and upon plugging a few different amps into the cab Jackson and I had to concur. There's definitely some kind of gnarly fuzz in there.
Well, today I went down to Guitar Center on 14th Street and picked up a nice new Celestion Vintage 30 to drop in. Rated at 60 watts, we'll have to be careful not to blow it out with the big Marshall (this may be what happened to the original speaker), but everything I've read says these speakers are sweet.
I'll do the install, perhaps tonight if I get a chance, and let y'all know the results.
