I'm just wondering which speaker to use with the Ceriatone OTS. I'm looking for that "Santana" singing lead, not too bright... You guys know what I mean.

Do I want the OTS or the OTS S&M? What speakers in your opinion(s) would be best suited to this sound? Please don't tell me Vintage 30's!!! LOL....

I've just ordered my OTS, so I'd like to get a head start. I still haven't decided whether to order a Head or a Combo setup. Opinions?

thanks.....

Eminence Tonkerlite is the best there is

G12-65 and EV-12L are useless for most players!!
and are only popular because Larry Carlton use 12L and Robben Ford the G12-65 use these speakers.

Don't get fooled into copying the Pro's gear. They play at loud volumes, which most players won't be able to do. Therefore, focus your attention speakers suitable for low to medium playing. Hence, Eminence Tonkerlite.

Respect for the big guy's work....we're at this part of the forum because of HAD's amps.

It's rather bold to say that the most commonly used speakers (G12-65 and EV-12L) are useless.  I use the EV-12L at low, medium, and high levels and I'm pleased at all levels.  I did not base my decision on what notable players are using, but rather after comparing the EV-12L with 5 other speakers.  I don't have a comment about the Tonkerlite because I haven't heard it with my amp.

That is just not true.
I use mine at home all the time and my OTS G12-65 combo is the best home amp I ever had.

I have a 10'' Tonetubby Alnico it is the most defining speakers I have used.  I also have a Weber VST 10" which is a close 2nd.  I use both in the same speaker cab combo.  I think I'm the only guy on this site to use 10'' speakers

I second the motion regarding the Eminence Wizard. I originally was using a 2 x12 cab with a V30 and G12H30 which sounds very good. But I recently started using a 1 x 12 closed back cab with an Eminence Wizard to make it easier to set up in tight places. I really don't miss the 2 x12 at all. The Wizard is a very efficient (103 dB, loud) speaker with excellent response in all frequency ranges. When both cabs are combined, that OTS sounds soooo good.

For the tone you are looking for (Santana), I can safely recommend the G12-65. Check out my clips, they are all recorded at low volumes.
