Introducing the new 10" Silverbird and 12" Silverbird

The Silverbird speakers are designed to provide an eminently versatile array of tones, retaining the distinct vintage character of their Reinforced AlNiCo ancestors, the Blackbird 40 speakers, but in a more affordable platform. Specific attention was paid to the top-end response, carefully tailored to make the Silverbird speakers well-suited to overdrive and high-gain applications. Additionally, they feature a more contemporary frequency curve on their respective treble ranges.

The Silverbird line utilizes a new 1 ½” (38mm) aluminum-wound voice coil with a Kapton former, designed to retain the trademark clarity of the Jensen clean tones, paired with a smooth, progressive contour of the top-end response; this response is tailored to grant openness with clean and pushed tones, and the necessary smoothness to keep the upper harmonics of the high-gain tones under control. The medium-sized Ceramic magnets provide the necessary strength for generous-yet-tight bass, while the new cone membranes, with a specific treatment on the paper surrounds, deliver a balanced response in the midrange and “presence” zone.
