Back in 1986 a new breed of hard rock player was on the rise. To meet the demands of the players and their increasingly 'hot-rodded' amplifiers, we set out to develop a modern speaker, capable of handling much more power and overdrive. To achieve this, we coupled our 'H' magnet (the closest in performance to Alnico) with a new cone and voice coil employing contemporary materials.
Our most revealing speaker, the Vintage 30 features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low-end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top-end. Used singly to reveal the complexities in hand- wired boutique amps, or in quartets for a wonderfully intricate vintage 3D crunch, the Vintage 30 sound has been captured on thousands of recordings from a diverse range of notable players including Slash, Steve Stevens and Peter Frampton.

I put this baby in an empty cab and now it sings like Jesus himself.
This speaker is such a great choice for everything from heavy blues to heavy metal. I can't say enough about the performance and source of enjoyment that Vintage 30 speakers provide. There is a break-in period for these, and even during this time they sound great.
I wanted to personally thank you for the prompt fulfillment and delivery of my order. To order this on a Thursday evening and to receive it by Tuesday Morning across the country is truly a welcomed experience. I was becoming very frustrated with the lack of service from L&M and you saved the day, if I ever need speakers or parts again I will look at your business first!
