Celestion Vintage 30 12" Guitar Speaker
The Celestion Vintage 30 Speaker resulted from Celestion's early steps to preserve the tonal characteristics of vintage speakers while using contemporary materials and construction techniques.
As the 1970s progressed and guitar amplifiers became more powerful, guitarists began to demand the tone of the Celestion Blue in a speaker that could handle more power. So in the early 80's, Celestion made pioneering use of Laser Doppler Interferometry to analyse the cone behaviour of an original Celestion Blue. Celestion could then form a precise model of their vintage speaker characteristics and apply it to a speaker design using new materials for greater power handling.
The result was an instant classic. Seemingly twice as loud as anything else at the same power level, the Celestion Vintage 30 Speaker 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!
