Classic Vox Tone with ceramic punch. 12″, 40oz Ceramic magnet, 1-3/4″ voice coil, ribbed cone.

Detailed high end that doesn’t get hard or harsh at high volumes, aggressive, big low end, more headroom than the AlNiCo version.

As with all Weber speakers, the higher the power rating, the warmer and smoother the speaker. The 15 watt is aggressive, bright, with a strong midrange crang. At the other end, the 100 watt is warm, smooth, yet is detailed and clear with very good definition. The 75 and 100 watt models use very high temperature voice coils that are the same weight and mass as the lower power voice coils. That assures good attack and a broad frequency response due to the low weight and mass of the voice coil assembly.

• Paper cone – standard Kurt-Mueller British cone used in most of our British type speakers.  the 75Hz cone is the more “classic Marshall guitar tone” if you will.  75Hz is the general name that has been given to this cone since the 60s, even though the resonant frequency is closer to 82Hz, which is low E on a standard tuned guitar.  Standard low end with a midrange bump, and clear articulate high end.

• Hemp cone – very soft material, darker, warmer, foggy and less focused. Hemp’s longer fibers give treble notes a sub-harmonic richness that warms the sound. great for that hazy stoner metal thing where articulation isn’t the objective. it cuts the treble, but it also affects the overall response and feel to be more squishy.

Try pairing this with a Silver Bell in a 2×12 combination. Great low end from the Silver Bell, while retaining clarity and definition from the Blue Dog. (or a pair of each in a 4×12)

Note about impedance: we offer these speakers in 24-ohm as an option, specifically for 3×12 and 6×12 setups, which avoids the common problem of some speakers receiving more power than others, but rather balances it out so each speaker can be as full as possible. (24-ohm 3x parallel = 8 ohm cab. 24-ohm 6x parallel = 4 ohm cab)

Ted Weber Speakers are built with tighter, more concentric voice coil gaps, and lower carbon, machined steel parts in the magnet circuits which yield a stronger, more controlled tone at all volumes, particularly in the low end at high volumes.


Ted Weber Speakers are hand-built to order, to ensure the best attention to detail is paid to your speaker.  We build them one at a time, on a table – not hundreds at a time on an assembly line.  This allows us to reduce the margin for error and produce an overall higher-quality speaker.  Please allow 7-10 business days for your order to be built and then shipped.

    I just got my speaker and put it in my amp and I am loving my sound! I’m kind of kicking myself because I’ve been chasing tone for awhile now and if I’d known that I could spend less than the price of a boutique pedal to sound this good, I’ve have done it a long time ago and saved myself a lot of money in the process.

    Thanks to C.J. for recommending the speaker I needed and everyone at Weber for the great customer support. C.J. recommended the 8 ohm 30 watt version for my Fender Blues Jr. and he was dead on. I replaced the Chinese Celestion Vintage 30 that came with my amp (Silver Bullet special run) and the chime and jangle are amazing. It just makes me want to play!

    Excellent speaker for and classic rock I have tried it in my marshall combo and use it mostly for my fender bluesdeluxe. Clean passages sound great, bass is solid, and the mids are perfect not too much just right. Info for wattage and doping. Get more wattage and doping than you think if you play heavy rock or play at high volume. Thats a pretty standard rule of thumb for any speaker witch holds true for this speaker as well. Of course there are exceptions to the rule so dont go to far with it. Always ask what you need. You may end up with something amazing like this speaker.

    Just a quick update about the Blue Dog. I played a gig yesterday for an hour and a half at a festival. My wife, who is my harshest critic, told me it is the best my guitar has ever sounded. I played the Suhr Badger 18 with the Blue Dog in the closed back Bogner cab. It sounded absolutely amazing. Like no sound I ever had out of an amp before. The clean was so sweet and full and rich, and when I kicked in the my TS808 and RC Booster, the overdrive was gorgeous.

    Upgraded to this speaker in my Classic 30. It’s a much livelier speaker and not nearly as muddy sounding as the stock Blue Marvel. With a bit of revalving I’ve found an awesome crunch sound on lead but with a well voiced clean as well.

    CJ was a great help on the technical service side and made the whole process foolproof.

    If you’re on the fence at all about a speaker change, give these guys a chance!

    Placed into a AC15C1 running JJ 5751’s in V1 and V2, sovtek 12ax7lps in V3 and 2 mullard el84’s matched at 42ma.

    Now that the amp tech is stated, this is what is happening. This speaker is absolutely the finest ceramic I have ever heard. It is punchy, clear, responsive to touch, tight, amazing from E to E. Overdrives nicely and doesnt flub out. Fixes the brittle top end when the amp is cranked. Did not need to dial much on the amp knobs from where I like to play it. Makes my tone controls on both custom built strat and tele more usable. My setup is tone city now. This is the speaker I have been looking for all these years. Oh did I say it hasnt even broken in yet, yep I have been jamming it for 2 hours only, I cannot believe how good this sounds out of the box. Thank you guys at weber so much you are true artists.

    Great all around classic rock speaker. Fixed that "boxy" sound in my Deluxe Reverb Reissue. Likely a near perfect replacement speaker for a small combo with only one speaker.

    I replaced the stock Jensen speakers in my Koch Multitone with a Blue Dog and Silver Bell. This combination is what C.J recommended to me and I’m really impressed. These speakers sound much smoother and have more character than the stock speakers and they blend really well together. I posted a before and after demo on Youtube. You can find it here https://youtu.be/9Ngwe7hpTJ8 I highly recommend Weber speakers. They have awesome customer service and superior quality speakers.

    I am a rhythm guitarist with a tendency to incorporate syncopated bass parts into my playing. As I am fortunate enough to work with a very capable bassist, I need a distinct guitar bass voice so that the two bass lines don’t turn to mud.
    After some research, I put a ceramic blue dog into my classic 30 and I am delighted with the result.
    It’s a wonderful speaker that brings out the very best in the amp.

    I installed the Bluedog in a Stage Right 15 watt 12” tube combo and right away noticed a more musical, natural tone. It wasn’t like night and day at first, but the more I played, the more those differences stood out . The bluedog is more musical and natural sounding as I said, but also smoother, warmer, with more top end sparkle and a richer creamier overdrive. I would reccomemd the bluedog to anyone looking for a 12” speaker upgrade.I just really dig this speaker! Five stars!

    I got a chance to put the ole Blue Dog to the test over the weekend at band rehearsal and OMG! I replaced the stock speaker in a Fender Champ 40 that I just got last week. This thing ROCKS! I am now happy with the amp and plan on keeping it. Its now a KEEPER and a SLEEPER!

    Kudos to my speaker GURU guy CJ for his recommendation!

    If you get a chance to try this speaker, you won’t regret it.

    I had to try the Celestion Hot 100 out in my Champ 40 amp but I have to say that it had that ice picky, ear piercing highs that made you hurt. Some speakers are just made for certain amps and the Blue Dog 12" is the ticket for the Champ 40. It is still clear with bottom end but smooth mids and highs. Once you try a Weber, you probably will forget about all those other brand name speakers. I still haven’t put enough hours on it to break it in yet but I can’t wait til it is.

    This is my first experience with Weber speakers and I am ashamed to say that I took it out to install a Celestion but I will never doubt the quality of a Weber speaker again and I’m not sure where the Celestion will end up but it has been removed from the Champ 40 and I put the Weber back in.

    Just want to let you know that the Blue Dog recommendation worked out to be fantastic. The old stock speaker was flat an unresponsive, the Blue Dog totally brought the amp back to life, better than it ever was. Great mid and bottom, and clear resonant highs and a smooth breakup. Makes my Teles come alive. Love it.

    I now have Blue Dogs in all my combos. Nothing works as well.

    Thanks and keep up the good work.
