Good Clean for Roots music

By TreeAgJames

from Central Texas

Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

Great Balsy cleans for electric roots blues and jazz. Very good midrange and low notes voicing. I don't play metal or distortion so can not rate it for distortion.

Hard to believe..not really.

By Kinda pickey tech.

from N.E. Pa.

Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

O.K. I started playing in 1963, I tech now (mostly).I came by a Super Champ XD recently and having been spoiled by an old Ampeg, was ready to sell it, the XD that is. I know what the right speaker can do, but, to expect any speaker to accomplish this was near delirium. I got this speaker (a used one from G.C.)because the XD is a wonderfully simple amp unlike many modelers, and I had to try to keep it. Well, instead of the non-dimensional hard sound of the original speaker I got clear, transparent, nicely layered and intricate sound. Resists breakup much longer than the original speaker. It's percussive when I need it. This speaker makes the amp gig ready at even nearly max volume without mic'ing given the right venue. Bravo Eminence. Lovely speaker.

Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

I bought the Lil Buddy to put in an early 80's Peavey Backstage plus that i got as a light weight practice amp.The stock speaker sounded ok at low volumes but would get brash and tinny at higher volumes and just pop and fart when driven hard. after some research and reading the reviews I figured Id give the Lil Buddy a try. I mean why not put an $80.00 speaker in a $50.00 amp??? Installed the speaker in about 10 minutes, factory holes lined up perfect, good heavy speaker compared to stock, nicely packaged and great quality. The gamble paid off!!! This thing sounds great, much warmer than I expected for a 10", but has nice cleans and breaks up nicely when pushed.Much louder! As a matter of fact I wouldn't hesitate to play a small bar gig with it just to see. Very Impressed. Now instead of bringing this old Peavey to practice cause of the light weight, Im bringing it cause it sounds great!

My little buddy!

By Richard Crews

from Jacksonville,FL.

Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

I own a Crate 5 combo amp.With a 12AX7 and an EL34,I thought it would scream.NOT! I tried everything like changing the tone but nothing helped. I noticed online that people were changing the speaker.Rather than putting the amp away,I thought I'd give it a try.I found that Jensen is now Italian made and Celestion is too expensive for a $100 amp,so I decided to use a good old American-made speaker-Eminence.The Little Buddy 10 inch was close enough to work with the amp.All I can say is WOW!(I can say it backwards...WOW!). It was like playing through another amp.The difference was like daylight and dark.It was way louder at a lower volume setting and the amp could easily go into overdrive without speaker breakup.

Solid sweet tone

By Michael Laky

from Boise, ID

Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

I selected this speaker for my Fender SCXD after a lot of reading and pondering. As others have stated, I was skeptical of the 5 star reviews, but once installed and fired up I have to agree .. it's a 5. It was very easy to install with no mods needed. The Lil' Bud is just as described on the Eminence website ... darker/rich tone. The bass was a bit tight/bright at first, but it is getting warmer as the speaker breaks in. The mids and treble are awesome ... warm/smooth. Better to my ears than stock for the type music I play, and definitely louder. The guitar I use most is a mahogany chambered tele with vintage stacked (HB) Duncan at the neck & Duncan Little �ۡ����59 (HB) at the bridge with normal tele wiring (no coil splitting). Strings are D'Addario EXL115 (11 - 49). I play semi-pro in cocktail lounges ... mostly jazz, blues, pop, light rock. I've been playing 40 years and have been through a lot of rigs. Now days I want a good sounding small (light) package, and this combo with the Lil' Bud seems to be it. I use mostly channel 1 and setting #2 on channel 2. This speaker does a great job for me on those selections. On some of the other selections (like the Jazz King) it is quite dark and treble needs to be dialed up. With the OD channels the Lil' Bud sounds good to me, and not at all harsh. The bottom line is I like this speaker for the use described.

      Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

      Just like the review before mine regarding the Peavey Back Stage amp.... I always regarded this amp as no more than a tinny sounding practice amp. After replacing the stock speaker with the Lil Buddy, the amp became a wonderful compact gigging tool. It is round, full and just as efficient as any of the 12" speakers I have. The bass player made the comment. "Ive never seen such a small amp sound so big!" I agree.... Its a smaller speaker made with a hemp cone.... As a result the speaker is darker than the average 10" speaker.


      Better Sensitivity/Louder

      Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

      Upgraded the stock speaker in a VHT Special 6 for harp use based a couple different recommendations. While still not properly broken in, I can hear a difference already in volume and bass response. I assume it will only get better and "greasier" as it breaks in. Very satisfied so far.

      from North Carlina

      Comments about Eminence Lil' Buddy 10" 50W Guitar Speaker:

      I purchased this speaker to replace the stock speaker in my Fender Princeton. I tried it in the Princeton and it didn't really do it for me. So, like a true tone quest I installed it in my Marshall Class 5 and it brought that amp to life!! I was so pleased with the results I wrote this review which I very rarely do. I just wanted to share in case anyone else had a Marshall Class 5 Amp and wanted to give it a try. It really sounds so much better!!
