The overall tone of the new Eminence 820H is warm and clear with a nice punchy bottom end. It really works for clean playing as well as overdriven tones without the typical plinky 8″ tone or feel. You can hit it hard and it does not give in or implode. Champ owners will really love the 820H and I can only imagine what a pair or quad of these would sound like.
If you are going to be at the NAMM show between January 24th-27th you can check out this new model by visiting Eminence Speaker LLC in Hall C, Booth #4334. The good folks at Eminence will be demonstrating the new 820H in a custom amplifier I built for them based on the old Champ circuit. It is a custom Pennalizer “Sixwatt”.
