jBL options/alternatives Telonics

I'm sure this has been discussed before. Here is another option, if anyone happens to try them I'd love to hear their opinion. They are supposed to be a replacement for a K120. My impression of the neodymium speakers is they are so clean that when they do get overdrive it sound like a clean overdrive. I think you know what I mean,not that warm growl. I have a 1jensen 100 neo in my twin that I love better than the original Fender blue labels in the twin. But rarely push it hard and I'm not trying to replicate The Jerry tone wirh it. They are just better than the originals and I'm happy with it .I just got a weber Cali that I haven't even had a chance to install and try yet. Anyway if anyone has spare change try these out for us and tell us what you think! I love my Telonics volume pedal and it is generally accepted among most who have tried them that they are the best volume pedal money can buy.

From the Steel Guitar Forum:

** Note: When installed in vintage amplifiers and modern versions of classic amplifiers, the TSNEO 12-8 offers a slightly fatter bottom end than the old JBL’s so it is necessary to pull the bass control down very slightly in order to achieve the same balance of lows to highs as the JBL K series speakers. If this is not done, the listener may get the impression that the TSNEO 12-8 offers less highs than the JBL K120-8 due to the dominant lows.
By pulling the bass down slightly, the same balance between the low and high ends is achieved.
(In other words, the two types of speakers will not sound the same if they are simply “switched” without making this adjustment.)

Wouldn't this be a problem for a Jerry player with a bass control already set at 0?

Yes , i imagine it would if you play with the bass already at 0 . I've never played with mine at 0. I have the ultralinear twin, so I'm usually trying to tame the highs.
