IMO my playing is pretty pedestrian in that clip and just for demoing the amps.Smolder wrote: ↑Tue Apr 20, 2021 1:39 amI see your point, the ribbed cone makes for a cleaner tone ... HOWEVER the speaker is definitely capable of Jerry tones - although maybe not the best all around choice.
It’s not a Jerry style sounding JBL... it lacks the 4” voice coils and it has a ribbed cone. It’s its own thing. I still have couple stashed.
Here is a demo with a guy playing Jerry style licks through a DR and it sounds really good IMHO
I have sold both of those amps after I found a 64 Deluxe Amp which now has the D123 in it.
I recently acquired a lawsuit era Howard Roberts copy, made at FujiGen in June 76, branded Speedfire. That amp with that speaker makes that guitar sound as sweet as candy.
Not a Jerry sound but I am not really looking for that anymore. Plenty of others chasing it.
