Speakers from old Wurlitzer organ?

Hi, a friend just gave me a pair of 12" speakers from an old Wurlitzer. They have a small square magnet on the silver frame and have 1237-? stamped on the cone.

Any idea who made them?

Thanks.

Kind words, thanks you. Those clips were from last year. Not gigging right now, but need the excerise, will get back to it soon.

Enjoy the search for the perfect intonation! :D

I had to ship my guitars 1000 miles for Pleking, so I feel for the hassle it would be for you...but as an intonation/set up freak, it was worth the gamble and expense. No regrets, obviuosly, as I've repeated it with other guitars. Also, I find lower action minimizes the problem, as the strings move ...

Plekking WILL improve your intonation, absolutely. I have had three of my seven electrics plekked. Also, while the Buz Feiten nut requires an offset (and fussy) tuning regime IMO, I have recently made a compensated nut similar to the Earvana nut (which is a good design, inexpensive, but they use cra...

youtube, and my various guitars

Hi all. Been away for a bit, but have missed everyone here. Digging through some vids from 2006 I posted a bunch of stuff on youtube, if anyone wants to see it. Of the guitars featured, only the Firebird is a Tokai, but the others have had mods I learned about here. Thanks! http://youtube.com/jefcul...

The Orange Drops are nice indeed, and maybe not worth changing, but I did anyway. The Hovland "guitar caps" are almost as big an improvement over the OD as the OD are over the ceramic discs. Granted they cost a few dollars, not a fraction of, like the Orange Drops. Still a very cheap and effective m...

Hey Tudor, Ceriatone will send you the amp fully assembled and ready to use. You do need to mount it in a box though.

Not only do they have great products and prices, but the service is fantastic!

GAS

Excuse my ignorance, but I see this all the time, and I have no idea what it stands for.

Appreciate an answer, thanks.

Next question, is it possible to build an 18 watt or small wattage amp with the charecteristics of an early eighties 2203 jcm 800 Marshall.....?? If that's the amp you ultimately want, save up and get one. Trying to make one amp something else results in spending extra money and still not being hap...

The 18 watt as it is really perfectly does exactly what most everyone wants a Marshall to do. It automatically does the sound you always try to dial in on other models. Sure, you could modify it, and people do, but in the end the straight amp is that "sought after" tone. 18 watts is plenty to drive ...

You can have things cheap, fast or good. Pick two, can't have all three. Tokai are great instruments for a reasonable price, and they come from half a world away. Guess we can't expect them to be on time. My plan is just to visit Japan and buy a couple there. Less agrivation. My genuine sympathies t...

Do a search on this forum. You'll find plenty of info. Or just plain Google "Plek guitar". It is a laser guided device that scans the topoghraphy of the fingerboard as well as the fret heights, and provides a relief map of the actual relationship of the string to the bpard and the fret separtely, fo...

Thanks for the extra guitar porn! My wife laughs at me all the time, "that look on your face, are surfing the web and looking at porn?" My reply is to turn around the laptop and show her guitar photos! Always good for a laugh! When I show her I am looking at the inside of an amplifier she just shake...

You know, I played a bunch of Buddas recently. Just couldn't dial in what I was after. Must say, I now, after almost 30 years ENJOY using a Wah-Wah! Budda make the ONLY good sounding Wah I've ever heard. Worth the high price. Even the under pedal switch WORKS! I have 3 crybabys, none of the switches...
