I bought the Swamp Thang to replace the stock Eminence-made speaker in a Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue, as I found that stock speaker to lose clarity at higher volumes, tend towards a rather shrill high-end even with very low treble settings, and become very flubby and distort quite easily.

The Swamp Thang remedies all of these issues. The bottom end is tight and powerful and never gives in to flub (this speaker handles bass frequencies extremely well, I've played bass through it, and some rather extreme sub-frequency octave effects, and none of those frequencies seem to just "disappear" as they do with many standard electric guitar amp speakers ? Eminence actually state on their site that this amp can handle 7-string and bass guitar easily), the mids are clear and punchy, and the highs are actually manageable now.

If you're looking to retain an "American" tone for a Fender amp, whilst vastly improving sound quality and volume efficiency, I highly recommend this speaker.

Speaker with the balls!

Has its own unique style and character. Excellent sounding clear mids, good sustain, punch & breakup, cutting through upper mids and high frequencies. It is perfectly readable in the mix, giving a distinct stable roar on the power chords and lingering single notes. Moreover, it mixes well with other English speakers, complementing the overall picture.

Forgot to review these. They are used in my 1971 Fender Twin, which has been partially 'Black-faced', and took over from the JBL D120F pairing which needed re-coning. They have slightly less of the harsh highs of those speakers, but still offered the clarity higher up, and the weight in the low end was wonderful. I'd highly recommend these as an upgrade for a Fender Twin of this vintage.

Fantastic mixing speaker
Anonymous 16.10.2015
I initially tried the Swamp Thang in a Vox AC15 which perhaps sounds a little insane baring in mind this is a dark, super-efficient 150 watt monolith voiced more toward the west of the Atlantic - as someone who loves to experiment however I thought it was worth a go.

If anyone ever questions what difference a speaker can make to a rig, this is certainly the speaker to show them. Volume-wise the AC-15 was pushed further toward it's larger brother and you could audibly hear how much low end was freed up. The bass frequencies were more like something you'd hear from a 4x12 than a small combo, where as the top end sounded a lot more restrained and less spikey than what came stock in the amp. The clarity was enhanced however, so were the limitations of the amplifier. It took the AC-15 from a fantastic rhythm players amp with a charming early break-up to something loud, but a little flat and joyless.

The real joy came however, when I put the stock speaker back in the combo and ran the Swamp Thang in a separate 1x12. The rig came alive as the flat top end was enhanced by the stock speaker however you got the deep, rich bottom end and clarity of the Swamp. The varying efficiency didn't seem to matter as the combo was stacked on top of the 1x12 so the combo was closer to ear level. It's definitely worth experimenting with if you can.
