Recently, I replaced the original Oxford speaker in my '67 Deluxe Reverb with a new jensen C12N speaker. I also replaced the 6V6 power tubes with 2 6L6s . Result, no drummer is now too loud, even though it's still a 20 watt amp. Beautiful clean, rich tones and the breakup is still there, of course, when required. I never put the volume past 4!

Just got the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe S.E. with the C12N speaker and love it, put the tube screamer pedal on it and it comes alive, for a small package it handles the task easily, play everything from gospel to rock and it sounds equally good clean or gritty, good stuff.

I own a standard Fender Blues Junior, I discovered a variant of this amp in a Tweed version, which had a Jensen C12N. The difference was very apparent when I did an A/B comparison. I now play the Tweed amp more than the Tolex version. By the way, I also own a Fender 59 Bassman Ltd with four Jensen 10" speakers and it blows everything else out the door! Nuff said! I am a happy customer! Thanks!.

Great speakers. Liked them so much I picked up a C12N, P12Q and MOD 12-50 to re-do three respective new amps to give them a more vintage tone.

I have a Fender twin that sports two Jensen C12N's and am very happy with the sound.

I use a reissue Fender Deluxe Reverb with a Jensen C12N an the tone is everything that a working Blues player could want. I have tried other speakers but I always go back to the Jensens. I even have them in my 68 Princeton Reverb, my 57 Deluxe and my Pro Junior.

I picked up a couple of C12N reissues that sound great in my vintage Fender Bandmaster Cabinet. Jensen Speakers were the originals that gave Fender their classic sound. So thanks for all.

Just installed my C12N into my Blues Junior and what a difference its made. It is like the difference between instant and filter coffee, just a far richer, deeper more developed tone with 10 times the presence. A true Blues tone...

I was able to get a good deal on a pair of C12N speakers to replace the pair of Jensen Vibrantos that were originally in my 1968 Fender Bandmaster. They sure do sound sweet.
