no ribbons no problem

"I can't realistically listen to music with a blown ribbon, I can do this work whilst waiting for the new ribbons to arrive"

Recording technology is hard-limited on freq. response till the mid 40's. You can listen to Bix Beiderbeck. You can listen to Louis Armstrong and his Hot Five. You and listen to the fabulous songbird Erna Berger on the Lebende Vergangenheit label.

You can listen to Flagstadt, Ponselle. You can listen to Friedrich Schoor sing some excellent Wagner. You can listen to early Furtwangler and Mengelberg. You can hear some strange, strange opera singing and listen to Fernando de Lucia on the Pearl label.

You can listen to Benny Goodman's famous Carnegie Hall concert. You can listen to Cortot play Chopin. You can listen to Casal's groundbreaking Bach cello suites.

There are decades of music to listen to. And unless you needed the sizzle and hiss, you are missing none of the music w/o tweeters because the the recording technology did not cover what we now call the tweeter range.
