General Your general opinion of this product. lots of clean headroom without being brittle and high endy.I added it to my Fender "the Twin"100 watt combo sounds smooth and clear with more mids Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yep it's heavy duty real solid 59oz magnet Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Its a sensitive and loud speaker Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Has thick smooth sound not as brite as the fender special design speakers in my Fender"the twin"reverb that I swaped out Action How was the action out of the box? It"s a big deep speaker Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Nice red paint job Reliability How has it stood up over time? Still new it looks sounds and feels like it will last better than its replacment.in the twin

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This is a quality speaker. I would recommend Red Coat Tonkers without reservations. I have an ancient Emi steel guitar "eclipse" speaker that I have abused and tortured for years...never a problem. Eminence makes good stuff. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Have not had the raw frame speakers long enough to tell. I would imagine that they are bullet proof from the evident production quality. General Your general opinion of this product. This is an excellent speaker for a vintage or reissue Fender Twin Reverb. I know this is heresy, but I perfer The Tonker over the OEM mint condition EV12Ls I used for years. EVLs are also excellent, but are a neutral speaker and add little tone coloration. The Tonker is a bit lighter as well, and has all the head room and punch of the Electro Voice. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? These speakers sound great in a Fender Twin with a Telecaster. I use a Wampler Compressor and a Sex Drive clean boost with excellent effect. They do offer a certain amount of coloration, but it is a positive not a negative. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Comes with a snazzy hot red paint job with a cool rubber boot on the magnet housing. Action How was the action out of the box?
