The Blackbird 10-40 is a completely new 10”, 40W speaker, with a 1.25” copper-wound voice coil and the exclusive “Reinforced AlNiCo” magnet design that Jensen introduced with the highly successful Blackbird 12-40.
"The Jensen Blackbird 40 speakers are a revelation, and in a way, a revolution for us. They brilliantly combine the vintage dynamic sensitivity, the upper midrange attack and openness of the traditional AlNiCo speakers, with a tighter bass foundation and a refined top end that suits even modern, higher gain applications.
The 12” version is excellent in a small Combo or Extension and the 10” is truly impressive, sounding nearly as big and powerful as the bigger sibling, with the added immediacy and unique midrange that is an essential element in an iconic 10” speaker."
All these different personalities are brilliantly exploited by Overloud’s high-resolution capturing process, with 19 microphones in 16 positions each, mounted on both a 1x10" and 2x10" cabinets.
