One of the first speakers ever used in a guitar amplifier, the P15N was loaded in the earliest Fender Bassman® and Bandmaster® amps, setting the milestone for those classic tones. The P15N delivers a warm, full bodied tone, with deep basses, and a nice, extended top end. Excellent for all different shades of clean and pushed clean tones.

Guitarist Description

User Reviews

I have always played hollowbody ES Gibson guitars with P-90s, so I am used to alot of break up in my tone, but recently since I have been travelling overseas more and more I have switched to a Telecaster for its durability and ease of travel, the tone from Tele pickups coupled with my style of aggessive fingerpicking comes off a bit harsh, and I have struggled to get the tone I am used to, however the P15N gives me a muddier breakup and smoother tone at a lower volume, and has helped me to get a bit closer to the P-90s I am used to. Thanx for everything.
