  • Weird double branded speakers

    A 1965 Vibrolux Reverb came in today with odd double branding. There are Weber stickers on the blue hotdog frames labeling them 10F150 dated 12/2013, but also with Chicago made Fender branded Jensen stickers on the magnets. What in the world? I emailed Weber, but I'm not sure if I will get an answer.

    It's weird, because it WAS working fine.....

    Perhaps a Weber recone of the original speaker?

      Could be a recone as The Dude says, or someone put those stickers on a Weber. Is the 220XXX Jenson date code on the frame? If not, it might be a Weber with stickers.

        Or Weber sold the Fender speakers to the guy, and stuck their sticker on it. Just like when you buy a car, the dealer often puts a decal on the car

          There is no date code or Jensen model on the frame. In fact there is nothing on the frame but blue paint.

            That is a most bizarre (and ugly) colour combination. Never seen that before.
            It sure looks like the Weber 10F150 basket. I wonder if he ran out of magnets on a run and got some from Fender.
            Fender with that magnet/backplate/sticker always uses black basket. Any other speaker with that blue basket always uses silver backplate with different sticker.

              MAy I suggest, for quick answers from Weber - or most anyone - CALL them on the phone.

                Weber will recone any speaker into one of their own, too. If you have an old burned out speaker they'll recone it to something of theirs that is close, just reusing the original basket, frame, whatever. I bet it was a blown Fender-branded whatever that Weber remade as one of theirs, probably the closest equivalent to the original...

                  I would have thought the same, but they would have had to re-paint the basket blue, and I can't see why they would.

                    Isn't the bit with the Fender sticker just a cover? Could somebody have swapped the cover (backplate?) from the original speaker onto this Weber just to make the amp look more original?

                      I don't think it is a cover or backplate, to my understanding it is the magnet. I know I am certainly not going to try to pry it up to see.

                        I believe he's talking about just the tan sticker. It's only a paper sticker.

                          Sticker is just paper, but the metal plate it is stuck on is the pole piece of the magnet assembly.

                            ^^^^^^ Yes, that. You don't want to try removing anything but the sticker or you'll destroy the speaker (if one didn't want the sticker).

                              Yes, I was talking about the magnet backplate (black). Fender only uses that with black baskets.
