FDP Forum / Fender Amps: Vintage (before 1985) / Oxford Speakers

Just got a cabinet from Mojotone for my Pro Reverb

After trying out a few speakers I settle on an Early-1970's Oxford 12T6 and a Mid-1960's 12L6.

Wow. Really like what I'm hearing. Very Vintage, warm with a lot of Character, I've heard the early version where up there with the early Jensens.

Anyone out there like Oxford's ?

Thousands of Fender amps left the factory with Oxford speakers. Back then people didn't change out speakers like they do today. Those old Fender amps were the go to amps back in the day. They sounded great.
I like Oxford speakers.

Some of my Magnatone amps have them. They seem a little less bright than Jensen's to me but they overdrive nicer with thicker lead sounds. More like a horn and less like a bell.

I had read all the talk about the need to swap out the old Oxford-speakers etc., so that´s what I tried... but my ´66 Deluxe never sounded as good/sweet as it used to - until I decided to put the "old and tired" Oxford back in ;-)
I regularly play the amp at around 7/8 on the volume-dial and hit the front-end with an OD-pedal (or two) if needed - and it never ceases to amaze me!

cheers - C.

I have a '64 Bandmaster I bought new with Oxfords. I also got sucked in by the "swap mentality". Tried Lansings, and Jensen P-12N. Yup, I'm back with the 1964 Oxfords, and there I'll stay.

haven't heard one that I like better than original Jensens, but that's me.

New guitars, old amps. Perfect.

The 10" Oxfords sound pretty good based on a few vintage amps I've been able to get my hands on.

I sold a '68 drip edge black line SFPR with original Oxford a few years ago. I chose to keep my '65 BFPR with vintage Jensen. I regret selling that amp. On the other hand, I've replaced Oxfords with Jensens but never the reverse.
