bbenhull - August 14th, 2019

I've had a Jensen Jet Falcon in a modified Blues Junior for a while now. This speaker sounds great, plain and simple. I am a hobbyist and like to jam at home and with friends in band and non-band scenarios, and this speaker sounds amazing. Powerful, authoritative bass and crisp, bright highs with articulate middles. Breaks up amazingly with a slight nudge, and screams when pushed harder. It's so much better sounding than the stock speaker that I ended up donating the stock speaker to a local charity. No joke. Get this speaker, and you won't regret it.

This is a weird speaker in some really good ways. I bought it like six months ago as a replacement for either this silly univox solid state thing or a Fender Deluxe Reverb RI. It comes in and has this super bizarre sound quality to it. Like old radio-ish on cleans, which makes very little sense to me. I fell in love with that sound, partially cus I've never heard it anywhere else. Because of that it's not exactly capable of grabbing classic tones as I envision them and colors the sound pretty dramatically. I was looking for something that could handle cleans that could go from chime-y strat sounds to deep muted jazz box sounds. This thing wasn't gonna do any of that, but was gonna do a whole lot of other awesome stuff. In addition, it's unbelievable with heavy distortion. It single handedly revitalized my love of playing metal just because it sounds so damn good with a bunch of distortion pedals cranked all the way up. Plot twist: I sold this speaker. The lack of versatility was the kicker for me. But six months later I still crave the tones it put out. So I'm gonna buy me another ASAP and just soak in its uniqueness. If you're looking for that, or for some extremely satisfying metal tones, this thing will take great care of you.

Rockin' Ronnie - August 24th, 2014

I bought a pair of these about a year ago and I decided it was time to give you a full review. I play out 3-4 times a month in a classic rock band and we play quite a variety of music from Eagles to Poison to ZZ Top and SRV. These speakers can handle every style you can through at them with authority. They have the best low end of any speaker I have found to date. Not boomy or buzzy, meaning they don't buzz or rattle at all, just crisp and clean as lows can get. Mids are also very articulate and the highs are not piercing at all. These speakers have the best of all worlds going for them. I have a custom 2x12 cabinet I built myself and a 20 watt tube head that is the loudest 20watts I have ever played thru. I tried Celestions, WGS, Weber, Eminence, Peavey, EV and other Jensen's and this Falcon 12" is the best sounding pair I have put in my cabinet. I sold all the rest of my 50 or so 12's I had and settled on these. I am not the only one who thinks they sound good. Everyone that hears my set up, no matter where I play, come up and ask me how I get the fat low end so clear out of 2 12's. I use am American Tele Standard with stock pickups, an American Strat with vintage noisless pickups, stock, and a Gibson Les Paul standard with stock '57 humbuckers and I have to back off the lows with this guitar just a bit. I get all my sounds from a Digitech floor processor as the 20 watt head I have is all clean. A buddy of mine borrowed my cab a while back for a gig and he used a Marshall 100w JVM head and when he brought it back to me he asked me if I wanted to sell it. I don't think so I told him. He asked what kind of speakers I had in it and now he has 4 of these in his 1960TV cabinet and he loves it. If you have been looking to fatten up the bottom end of your rig this is the way to go to get the best of all worlds and not sacrifice the mids and highs like all the other speakers I tried did for me. If I could rate it a 10 I would. I have been playing for 40+ years and these are the BOMB FOR SURE!!!

puckmugger17 - January 21st, 2014

I replaced a 12" Celestion 70/80 that came stock in a new Ampeg GVT-52 12 guitar amp, with the 12" Jensen Falcon because I thought the stock speaker was too harsh and muddy. What an excellent choice I made with this Jensen Falcon! The sound I get now is warm, creamy and clear and yet it's also bright and crunchy when it needs to be. The tone is just so fantastic, I can't get over how awesome my new amp sounds with this speaker. It took a good 10-12 hours of jamming to break in the speaker, but once it did, the clarity of the pick attack on the strings and the overall tone on both the clean and gain channels is amazing! I play mainly hard rock and classic metal and it's perfect for that. I also play clean with various petals to get a dynamic sound and it works very well for that as well. I highly recommend the Jensen Falcon!

I built a new cab and installed the Jensen 12" Falcon, 50 watts, 8ohms. Cabinet dims are 10"x15"x20" 1/2 open back. I hooked it up to my Blackstar HT5R combo amp which came with a Jensen Blackbird 12", and run them at the same time. WOW! What a incredible sound I have now. These two together are fantastic! The Blackbird tends to be a little dark, and the Falcon has a clearer sound and a singing mid's and highs with a good, clear thump on the bass end. I play country rock, 70's, 80's, 90's rock, and earlier metal. I recommend this speaker as a mix with the Blackbird or by itself. Fantastic speaker, and at this price you shouldn't pass it up.

GoofyDawg - November 14th, 2010

A friend of mine who builds my amps had me try this speaker out to test it, and I loved its tone so much that I ended up buying it from him. I used to swear by alnico speakers, and have a Jensen P12N in one cab, and Celestion Blue and Gold in my 2 X 12. I loaded the Falcon in another cab, and that's now my cabinet of choice for small venues and recording!No matter what amp I throw at it: Marshall-style, Fender, or Dumble-style, this speaker takes them all with ease and produces a super-tight but harmonically rich tone that's total ear candy. The Falcon is a winner! Here's my review of the speaker on my blog: http://guitargear.org/2010/09/02/gear-review-jensen-jet-falcon-jc12-50f-...

Benjamin Willard - June 30th, 2010

I'm very critical of tone in general. I usually buy the best that I can afford. The 'secret magical green cone' is a totally lame tagline but my buddy has a pair of these and he let me borrow his 212. I was very impressed with the speakers overall. I don't like the Jensen RI speakers but this new Jet is something else.

prbrosteac.com - June 1st, 2010

First, let me say that this is the worst ad campaign for the best speaker I've heard in a while. Seriously, a "secret magical green cone?" Give me a break. Why resort to the BS? Don't give me a line, just tell me what I'm buying.Try not to let it turn you off to an otherwise great product. Compare sound clips with other models on Jensen's website, and keep in mind that this thing costs less than $100.I dropped one into my '64 Ampeg Jet. It's a tight space, but the speaker fit just fine. The improvement over a period correct speaker was dramatic. This thing has balls to spare and allows the amp to break up in a tight, organic overdrive that gives me chills. This is a more even sounding speaker than the traditional Jensen 12" combo amp drivers. The woody resonant frequencies are less overbearing, but the amp still has a color to it that flatters warm and bright guitars alike.

Good Speakers. Nice Breakup
