How to repair a speaker?
Hello!  
I have a celestion speaker with a small rip (sorry my english, I dont know if this is the right word, but I think is enough to understand), and I saw a video "tube amp basics for guitarrist" and it explains how to fix a speaker with this problem. It uses a piece of paper and white glue.  
Someone knows the type of paper to use?  
And how that speaker will sound? To much different from a good one?  
There is better methods to fix it?  
Thanks!

Toilet Paper.  
 
Sound of speaker won't change.

Thanks!!  
I will try to do it with toilet paper.  
The only guide that I can find is on this page: http://www.webervst.com/sptalk.html, a answer related to a Fender Bassman.  
Thanks again!!

Cool!  
That webpage shows all the steps!  
Now I just got question, should I use contact cement or white glue (used in wood)?  
Thanks!

Regis, I saw in your site that you own a studio. I'm starting on home recording, and I really need some advices. I'm thinking about buying a mic preamp (behringer mic200) or a mixer (also behringer) to connect between a SM57 and the soundcard of my PC. Based on your exprerience, what should be the best one to buy (I'm very low on $)?  
If you have some other advices that you find essential to make some records, please...  
Sorry the off-topic, but I can't find your mail.  
Thanks!

Re: Home Recording
If you're only going to record one track at a time, I'd suggest sticking with a decent tube mic pre. They sound great and are really affordable these days.  
 
If you have the ability to input multiple channels, I'd recommend the Nady PRA-8 (http://www.nady.com/products/product_pgs/pra8_pg.html) 8 channel mic pre. It's not tube but, for the money, sounds pretty awesome. I've got two in my studio rack.  
 
If you go to the Events page on our website (http://www.jonesong.com/events.htm) and click the link to the song "Hunger & Sweat", you can hear the PRA-8 in action. This is a live off the floor demo of one of the songs that will be on our upcoming album. The entire song was recorded live through my two PRA-8's direct.  
 
I have a recording studio as well. It's primarily used for recording our own stuff, since the whole thing is built into my house, but I do contract out for audio for video projects and the occasional band project.
