Typically used in the lower powered 12” amps for studio or practice, the C12R is a clear sounding, sparkling speaker, very sensitive to the character of amplifier. When paired with a stout, rich and warm electronic design it can do wonders. Ampeg® Jets and Reverberockets are just some of the most revered amps that carried C12R as their factory choice.
I used this in a 5E3 clone, and wow! What a great Tweed sound this speaker yields! With sparkling highs, authoritative mids, and tight lows, it makes my Strat spank and quack, and turns my ES-150 into a throaty monster archtop.
I just replaced the original C12R in my 1962 Gibson Falcon GA19RVT with a reissue C12R, after 46 years the original was a little tired. Good move! This reissue is the ticket!!
I re-cabbed a Gibson GA15 into a custom made Mather cab modeled on Fender Deluxe 212. I used 2 C12R speakers and the sound is gigantic! The class A 15 watts from the Gibson through these speakers is beyond belief. I did use 2 Weber Beam Blockers to smooth the highs. These are fantastic speakers.
