I've settled that I'll be getting a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe to pair with my 6505 for cleans. I'll be popping a V30 in the 6505 of course, what should I pop in the Fender?

Playing metal mostly; think Mastodon/Tool type metal.

If you want, I can mix/master your tracks for free just so I can practice and who knows, maybe you'll love what you hear! Hit me up.

The stock speaker is an Emi and is pretty sweet for Fender clean tone. If you MUST swap speakers, Weber Ceramic.

Well if the stock speaker is good; then that is that. I'm just used to combo amps having shitty stock speakers and wanted to plan ahead

EDIT:

According to gc.com... its a Celestion?

Mine was an Emi Legend but it was an earlier version made in USA.

Why not just get a Roland JC120? You won't have to swap anything, and you'll have the best clean amp ever.

Well the JC120 has a really nice stereo chorus.
I though prefer me a 4x10" bassman for most clean applications.

Anyway TS, depends on the sound you like really.

If you have a guitar with mid to dark p/ups and you'll only play completely clean stuff on it I'd sure go for a Jensen P12, else if you have brighter p/ups and you may distort the thing a bit I'd put a greenback on it.

Word on the net is it's more or less a legend 1258. If it is, that's a pretty nice clean speaker already.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Ah, the baby Legend. I can't say that I am overly impressed with the big Legends for my Fender tones in my RM100. Fantastic for SLO and Marshall tones but for Fender I preferred T75's even. But that's the big 120W V1216's. Never used the little ones.

^ yeah the v12 sounds way different from the 128. the 128 is more of a fendery/jenseny type thing, but a bit more modern-sounding and handles distortion pretty well too. i'd agree with you about the g12t75 too, it's a bit scooped so to my ears probably works better than the middier celestions or eminences for cleans.

whether the one in the fender is exactly the same as the one you buy retail, though, I dunno.

yeah i got a 10" jensen ceramic (c10q i think) back when thomann was blowing them out and it's very nice for cleans. the eminence 1258 is a lot more versatile, though, while still having really good cleans.

also some of the jensens aren't that loud, if that's a concern.
