Loves it!

By Wiretree Music

from Austin, TX

Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

Great speaker for the money! I have 3 of these total, 1 in my Blues Jr, and a pair in my silverface Pro Reverb. These speakers are a great replacement for any player looking to tame some high end and retain solid low end without being to boomy. The hemp cone has no doping to the surround so the speaker is quite responsive and lively. As with any speaker, it needs some break in time, so give it a few weeks of playing before coming to any quick conclusion, though i thought it sounded great out of the box. Uses the same technology as a Tone Tubby speaker but at a more affordable price. I think these are great on their own, or as a match with say a Vintage 30 to add more midrange. Looking forward to trying the AlNiCo version (Canis Major). Pick one (or two) today!

Excellent speaker

By Derek W

from Kansas City

Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

Well, bought this little gem after much research and sounds bytes on the competition as a replacement in a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, and I'm very satisfied. This thing keeps sounding more and more amazing the more I break it in. Some purists out there already don't like the HRD (to my amazement) based on what I've read in some forums, but this amp sounds positively incredible with this amp. The more she loosens up, the more satisfied I become with her. Eminence has made a quality speaker here, and I couldn't be happier to spend my $$$ in the USA.

A sweet, excellent speaker.

By Michael Hill

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

I've had my NOS Blues Junior with the original Jensen speaker for a couple of years. It's been a nice sounding, versatile and very portable amp but I've had the feeling that it could sound even better. Research into the matter took be to Bill M's Blues Junior mod kit and the Cannabis Rex. The amp now has that openness one wants, and a sweetness on the high end that balances beautifully with the Rex's excellent mids and lows. The treble pickup of my American Standard Strat has a new life with this speaker. Highly recommended!

Great smooth speaker

By nathan rowell _

from germantown, md

Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

I recently did a tweed deluxe clone build that had a jensen speaker in it. The sound was shrill and brittle on the high end and made me dislike the amp. after doing some research i found this gem. I now love my amp. it maintains that vintage fender sound, but controls the highs. it is by no means a bright speaker, but it is thick. it drips tone and will smooth out bright amps or guitars. i would throw this into any fender style amp for a great full american sound. not so much for a brit sound, but any bluesy, clean, jazz or classic rock sound will come through fantastically.

A great Blues Jr. upgrade

By JERREL

Comments about Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

After extensive online research, I purchased this as an upgrade to a Blues Junior III. The online reviews are not wrong: this is a great upgrade for the Blues Jr! The stock speaker is fair, if a bit high-endy; the Cannabis Rex solves almost all of the sonic complaints about the Blues Jr. (upgrading the output transformer is also highly recommended, but I haven't gotten around to that yet).

The Cannabis Rex tames the spiky sounding highs of the stock speaker, really tightens up the lows, and has a very well defined tonal response, even when pushing the amp or using foundation overdrive pedals. The clarity of each note is a dream come true.

Great Speaker, Great Price

By Blues Guitar Man

from Michigan

Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

This speaker is great. Very warm, fat, "American" tone without getting muddy. For a speaker that is this warm, it is surprisingly articulate. Smooth lows and mids, and just enough bite in the higher frequencies to suit most playing styles. However, if you're looking to get a really aggressive and punchy British tone, you may want to look elsewhere. Paired this alongside an Eminence "Red White and Blues" speaker and it is a GREAT combo! I've got a couple heads that are really bright, and these speakers not only made them tolerable, but made them sound awesome. Really great it you're looking to bring out a little more of the bottom end in your amp. Great Product!

Awesome tone and quality!

By Mark Deill

from Madison, WI

Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

I have had my eye on these and the more expensive version. I purchased a VHT cab from GC's competitor, assuming they had the same return policy-NOT! I was stuck with a terrible sounding cab! Yet, I saw the opportunity to try these hemp speakers. Now I have the best sounding amp at the blues jam. Such a rich, yet solid sound. It is the perfect speaker. Natural sounding and the harmonics are out of this world. Playing a Blackheart 15w amp and a Telecaster with humbuckers. Very responsive. No sloppiness or harsh sounds. Only clear, sweet tones. Also, a great price, to boot. Can't say enough about this speaker and will get the 10 inch version for my 5 watt setup.

Tames the brittle highs.........

By PAUL LEMMER

from Englewood, CO

Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

I play Telecasters exclusively and I was looking for a replacement speaker that would tame the highs in my Roland BC60 a bit so I corresponded with Eminence for some suggestions. Tom James their Manager of Product Design suggested this CRex and he couldn't have been more on the money. Right out of the box this speaker sounds fantastic so I can only imagine how much better it will be once it's broken in. The highs are still there with plenty of chime but also with a much sweeter "singing" quality about them and without the more brittle sound I was getting from the stock speaker which is still an Eminence OEM speaker but with more of a British voicing. So I guess for me it's just a matter of preference as far as what I like my sound to be. To me the CRex has a smoother voicing The speaker has a nice mid range fullness and low mid balance to go along with the highs and it's really incredibly transparent and uncolored throughout. If you're looking for a speaker that will tame highs without losing them this is the ticket. I'm very pleased with the suggestion Eminence made and the results. I expect that it will only open up a bit more and sound even better as it gets broken in.

    Comments about Eminence Patriot Cannabis Rex 12" 50W Guitar Speaker with Hemp Cone:

    Have a Blues Jr and it has served me well from day 1. ( 5 years ago ) Used it many times live and in the studio. The Only 1 thing that I seemed to fight about it is the shrill on the top end that if I were to work the Eq's I will get it to be somewhat tame enough to work with. After this battle with shrill, it works all night.
    I wanted to stop doing that 10 min fooling around at shows just to tame it so I looked into the speaker options.
    I read at this GC site and on YouTube and sites around the web that have this eminence Cannabis Rex as a good alternative, so I went for it. Man, I was Instantly surprised at the tone. It tamed the ear picking highs, smoothed them to come together with the mids and brought out the tones in my Tele that were there but I was masking them by taming the shrill.
    I only used the speaker for a week now but it has been fun. I did not look back. I put the Original Fender 12 in the Eminence box and it is on the shelf for future use. I'm keeping this Cannabis Rex for now. I don't see any reason at this time to go back. I recommend this speaker if you still like the highs and want your mids to fall right in there with them.

            Someone said this speaker would improve the sound of my amp and they were right! It sounds great and was definitely worth the money. The sound is warmer and cleaner than the original speakers, even though I'm still breaking it in.

                This is my second Cannabis Rex. The first one I used in a Traynor YCV40 and it really enriched the voice of that amp. I put this one in a vintage Musicmaster Bass Amp and it came alive. I've read great reviews on this speaker and now I can say positively that it did improve my sound.
