The Celestion Greenback, with its distinctive green magnet cover, helped shape the sound of British Rock in the 60s and 70s. The G12M Greenback has evolved over the decades but still retains its essential, sought-after tone. Angus Young has been a Greenback devotee since the early days of AC/DC.
This model is voiced with additional broad mid-range attack and restrained top-end to give a forward, punchy attitude to chords and a searing lead tone without fizz. With its well-controlled low-end it can be used singly in low-powered amps, or in multiples for high-power rock heads. It’s an ideal speaker to bring drive and definition to modern high gain amps.
