Does anyone use D's? Does anyone like them? Can they be found? I assume they're much lighter than E's & K's?
I'm thinking about using them for a late 70's Bobby tone...
Actually MK, among "Non-jerry chasers" but lovers of the "Vintage Fender mojo" E's and K's come a distant 3rd and 2nd respectively to D120's (as far as JBL's go) D120's are THE SPEAKER when talking about 1960's Fender amps. In fact D120's were the "premium" upgrade option from the factory as a speaker choice.
They are still one of the most highly sought after speakers. You will PAY for then though as it is not unusual to see D's going for 3-400 EACH. No they are not lighter, they might even be HEAVIER believe it or not.
I believe all the 12" instrument speakers in the WOS for both Jerry and Bobby, were D120's so if you like that sound.........
They would work great for the late 70's deal, and you have a dual showman, dont you? D120's plus a Dual Showman = Heaven.
