Best cab for lush clean tones ?

I'm having a tough time to decide what is best cab to suit my vintage Echolette M40 amp (40w). This is a nice warm clean amp, it will do great tube dist. as well but I prefer clean for blues and pedals for distortion.

Anyways

What is the best 1x12 or 2x12 cab for lush clean Tones under $500?

And should I be looking at Celestion 30 speakers?

Thanks for help.

Something with alnico blues might be worth trying. I think if those when I think "clean and lush" but that's subjective.

Just about any cab with an open or partially open back will be a good place to start. Alnico speakers do tend to be a bit sweeter sounding, but not by a super significant margin.

I'm a big fan of mismatched speaker cabs....and would suggest checking out tone tubby and or th eminence cannabis Rex as one of the speakers. Even though the can/Rex is ceramic, it's extremely smooth and has a great low end. Speakers are fun.

"lush clean tones" from a "nice warm clean amp" ...my first thought would be a 70s era Fender Dual Showman cab loaded with JBL D130s. Tons of sparkle and chime but with a round, three-dimensional thickness that I find rare in open-back cabinets.

For what you describe I like the Fender Blue Label Special's.

Nice, tight, bottom end spank, chimey high's, and very smooth midrange.
