"Vintage 30" Guitar Speaker 12 Inch 60W 16 Ohm

Back in 1986 a new breed of hard rock player was on the rise. To meet the demands of the players and their increasingly 'hot-rodded' amplifiers, Celestion set out to develop a modern speaker, capable of handling much more power and overdrive. To achieve this, they coupled their 'H' magnet (the closest in performance to Alnico) with a new cone and voice coil employing contemporary materials.

Product Description

Celestion's most revealing speaker, the Vintage 30 features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low-end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top-end. Used singly to reveal the complexities in hand- wired boutique amps, or in quartets for a wonderfully intricate vintage 3D crunch, the Vintage 30 sound has been captured on thousands of recordings from a diverse range of notable players including Slash, Steve Stevens and Peter Frampton.

Seemingly twice as loud as anything else at the same power level, the Vintage 30 handles massive overdrive sounds with ease. Tight bass, fat mids and a smooth, harmonically rich top end have made the Vintage 30 an excellent 4 x 12 loudspeaker. Of course, it’s also suitable for any other cab!

  • Also available in an 8 Ohm version.
