Jensen speakers are a living legend of Rock’n’Roll. Jensen AlNiCo is one of the first speakers that has been used in guitar amps. The first Fender Bassmans and Bandmasters amps featured Jensen P15N speakers. The Fender Super Reverb amp was equipped with a Jensen P10Q speaker. AlNiCo is a type of magnet made of aluminium (Al), nickel (Ni) and cobalt (Co) alloy. Speakers with this type of magnet offer soft and warm sound. The AlNiCo Jensen is regarded as an excellent speaker for blues, jazz, and rock music. Cobalt is a rare and very expensive metal, so now AlNiCo magnets are used only in the most exclusive speakers and guitar pickups. Today, AlNiCo Jensen speakers are made with many of the original parts from the 1950s and 1960s. Paper used for the construction of membranes is an important element influencing the sound of the speaker, so in the AlNiCo series Jensen uses the same kind paper as that which was used in vintage speakers. In the Plexsound Psychonote we used the Jensen P10Q 40W speaker
The company was founded in the UK in 1924. Brothers Cyril and Ray French started their business in a workshop in Hampton Wick. “Celestion” was their first patented speaker, created a year later. Over the next decades, the company kept developing along with the times – during World War II it produced speakers for factories, tanks, and submarines, and in the decades after the war it became the voice of rock’n’roll when Vox and Marshall first installed Celestion speakers in their amplifiers. In the Plexsound Psychonote BW 10, we used the Celestion G10 Vintage 60W speaker.
