I have used these in several amps - a '52 Masco rebuild, a 35 watt homebrew, a BFDR clone, and a Hot Rod Deluxe, all with good results. Clean to dirty, the GB 128 does it all really well, and especially with the HRD - it cures the boomy bass and icepick treble of the stock speaker. At this price point, it can't be beat. The HRD owner wanted circuit mods to correct the tone problems but I suggested this swap first - no further action required, the amp now sounds great.
I put this speaker in a Fender Blues Deluxe. It totally transformed the amp, and really opened it up.
This speaker is basically a 50 watt greenback clone, but to my ears it seems to be a little more focused on the higher mids. So your Fender amp still sounds like a Fender amp.
Great speaker—my favourite, and cheaper than the others I've bought in the past year (A-Type, Invader 50). Great low end, great mids and top-end without ever being harsh. Never too tame, never too brash. Nice balance. Works with all my vintage combos, clean through dirty. Thoroughly impressed.
I bought four of these for a 4x12 cab. I replaced the stock Eminence/Marshall AX-75's with these. I am very happy with the upgrade, the cab sounds much better and the price was great. Also very fast and free shipping from nextgenguitars.ca. A+
