General Your general opinion of this product. I didn't expect too much from this speaker but needed to replace the stock speaker in my JCA2112RC, which had a really flabby tone with lack if high end. This Rocket 50 was a great option. It brought some high end clarity and really cut back on the low end, which is what I was looking for. Truly surprised at the tone for the (low) $$. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems too be made well. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Light and airy. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Crispy and twangy. Action How was the action out of the box? Nice. Hoping it will be better after about 20 hours. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks good from behind. I mean from the back of the amp. Reliability How has it stood up over time? We shall see.
Great Investment For Minimal Cash!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Excellent build quality. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Had them for about a month now. I believe they will stand the test of time. General Your general opinion of this product. Got these to replace the Celestion T-100 speakers in a Fender 4-12 cab. The T-100s sound GREAT at ear-bleed volume levels, but not so good at more reasonable (club) levels. The Rocket 50s definitely improved the tone and punch, both at reasonable volume levels, and even louder! They also sound great at home levels. Ran my Super Sonic 60 at 1/2 of 1 on the volume dial, and they sounded wonderful. Overall, a big improvement in tone and punch. I would recommend these speakers. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Well balanced tone, low to high. I prefer brighter sound, and these give me that. Not quite as bright as Vintage 30s, but very good. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Great job on manufacturing.
