I bought this speaker to replace a Celestion Vintage 30. I had a feeling that the Swamp Thang (ST) would be smoother and less "honk"y than the V30. I was totally correct. The bass is rounder and fuller, though possibly less punchy. So, if you're a metal/punk/hard rock player who wants palm muted chunky chords to thump the listeners' chests, it may not be for you. But for anyone else, I would highly recommend it's round fullness. Also, you're getting a Made in USA product for less than other big-name speakers. Great item!
