Brandnew: The Jensen Blackbird 10-40: the stock speaker in the brandnew MESA/Boogie California Tweed 6V6 2:20.
Powerful and natural sound, with a solid and firm bass range. The midrange and treble are open and airy, with the typical immediacy of the best 10" speakers. Pushed into crunch and overdrive, it retains a focused, cutting response.
Being the smaller sibling of the highly successful BB12/40, the BB10/40 shares many build and design elements: for example the same exclusive "Reinforced AlNiCo" magnet, and the 1 ¾" (32mm) copper-wound voice coil.
The power rating is the same, 40W, and the efficiency is very similar as well, delivering 95.4/96.4dB with ease.
The tonal qualities are just beautiful: The Blackbird 10/40 is distinctively vintage voiced, with a warm yet solid bass range, the classic sparkle and chime that are associated with the AlNiCo speakers, and all the immediacy and forwardness that are expected from a high quality 10" speaker.
Or as MESA/Boogie would put it:
"The Jensen Blackbird 40 speakers are a revelation, and in a way, a revolution for us. They brilliantly combine the vintage dynamic sensitivity, the upper midrange attack and openness of the traditional AlNiCo speakers, with a tighter bass foundation and a refined top end that suits even modern, higher gain applications.
The 12" version is excellent in a small Combo or Extension and the 10" is truly impressive, sounding nearly as big and powerful as the bigger sibling, with the added immediacy and unique midrange that is an essential element in an iconic 10" speaker."
