Product Description

The Celestion Vintage 30 was originally developed in 1986. To meet the demands of a new breed of hard rock player and their increasingly ‘hot-rodded’ amplifiers, we set out to develop a modern speaker, capable of handling much more power and overdrive. To achieve this, we coupled our ‘H’ magnet (the closest in performance to Alnico) with a new cone and voice coil employing contemporary materials. Our 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 three dimensional crunch, the Vintage 30 sound has been captured on thousands of recordings by players including Slash and Peter Frampton and bands ranging from Gov’t Mule to Killswitch Engage.

What is your overall opinion of this product?
The vintage 30 is my go to replacement speaker. I wasn't thrilled with the tone I was getting out of my fender 65 deluxe reverb ri. Sometimes the guitar and amp combo are just not a good match. The stock Jensen is ok but a little shrill with the tele /pickup that I recently built. After replacing the Jensen with the v30 the tone is more even, smoother - no more shrill highs and a little more bottom end response. Once broken in it will sound even better. I've used v30s in other vintage amps as well - my go to replacement speaker.

This cool demo shows each of 4 Celestion speakers responding to an identical piece of music. All cuts were played through the same amp and guitar (a Marshall JCM2000 and a PRS signature. All mixer EQ and level settings were identical. This is a great demonstration of the tone and volume difference that make each Celestion guitar speaker unique.
The speakers you will hear include the following in this order: G12M Greenback, G12T-75, Vintage 30, and V12-80 Silver Series.
