I've since repaired it. Such a shame because this sat in a virtually unused specialty organ cabinet, undisturbed, for 65 years. It's still gorgeous and presents beautifully, but it has a repair. As shown in the photos, the DCR value on our Fluke 15B is an excellent 6.2!
I've been repairing these for years, and normally the speaker will work perfectly and last years and years afterwards, without incident. However this is a 40 watt speaker which is designed to handle some serious volume and distortion, and due to the nature of how it may be used, I simply can't know or guarantee how it will perform for you or how long it will last.
It may blow apart in 2-3 licks, or you may find yourself ten years down the road reflecting back on how awesome it's been for you over the decade. But the price is low enough that you can have a fresh beautiful recone completed at some point in time and you will then have one of the finest P10Q's on the planet.
I have NOT played it since the repair, but the DCR value is solid. Start slow, at lower volumes, let it rest, and build from there.
Allow the surround to acclimate and meld itself to the slight structural changes of the repaired area. It's a 65 year old paper speaker. That will supply a more uniform load to the entire surround area.
I normally do that on vintage speakers of this type before offering it up for sale, but since this is a very specialized driver I opted to leave it original, as some players insist upon. Check our other listings for some JBL, Jensen, and other speakers and hifi gear to go with these, including a variety of horns, tweeters, tubes, and amps to compliment your hifi or guitar amp project. Fully guaranteed to be as described. ALL SALES FINAL: We will be listing most of our items as parts-only at reduced prices, despite the fact that they may be in excellent condition and working perfectly. It has taken a toll.
We are thinning out our inventory after a nearly two-year backlog due to pandemic issues. We need the warehouse space for our real estate restoration projects. We're not going anywhere!We had seven team members before the pandemic. We are now down to our two owners as we fire back up again. Will all be done by myself. To simplify, we will be liquidating everything under this account ID only. Now it usually takes about five days to arrive in our account.
If prices are rising, you now know why. We can't afford that. They have succeeded in putting an end to that.You're also welcome to pick it up yourself at no extra charge. The bottom line is that we need the time and space.
We will be listing some items on CL locally, setting things outside our buildings for free, and at some point hauling what's left to the landfill. We are located an hour west of Spokane, Washington, and four hours east of the Seattle area, generally speaking. Pristine 1955 JENSEN P10Q 8 Guitar SPEAKER-Fender Bassman-Teal Blue!
