Re: Old Vox Bull dogs vs. New Celestion Blues
Tim's right. Those gold frame 'bulldogs' are Oxfords, and are not up to the old Celestion alnico blue and silver frame speakers, not by a long shot. Thomas put bulldog stickers on both the gold Oxfords and the silver alnico Celestions, so this can be confusing. The repro blues are very nice sounding speakers, and are a very good repro of the originals. The cones are a little tight at first, but after playing them for awhile, they settle right in. You did the right thing, and $200 apiece is very good. You won't be disappointed!
