  • Excerpt: My first experience with these speakers was in 2007. Since then they've been in a lot of amps and have become the industry standard speaker for high gain applications. And I can see why! It's a great sounding speaker with a specific midrange character to it that a lot of metal or high gain players can work with. However, there is some fizziness ...

"My go-to speaker"

  • Excerpt: The Celestion Vintage 30 has been one of the most used and most notorious speakers of the guitar world. This has been the predominant speaker when it comes to heavy metal recordings, and for good reason. It’s a standard 12’’ speaker with a ceramic magnet, 60 watts worth of power and comes in either 8 or 16 ohm format. In the mi...

  • Excerpt: I also know the GT75 (Marshall 8240), Special Design Eminence (blues deluxe). I use it for 2 months on a hot rod emerald. The Vintage 30 is a curious HP. The lower midrange is quite runny, treble is well defined. The bass are large (but not that much). It lacks high-medium, we regret even more the G75T ... Obviously, some do not, a...

  • Excerpt: I used them a couple of years trying all the time why my set-up lacked smoothness, where did these mediums between hard metal? It was the Vintage 30. I do not like them at all! Since I have replaced with a model in Eminence, I love all the sounds that my equipment (high-end anyway!) Is used to carve. These speakers are in the majority of...

  • Excerpt: Celestion Vintage 30's... had them in a pair of closed back birch cabinets.. broke them in.. used for a few weeks.. so.. I did give them a thorough workout... This is a GREAT speaker for scooped out metal... where you are looking for sizzling highs and huge bottom.. not much character to get any sort of meaty leadwork (at least not in any 6L6 ba...

Brand new, treble fréquencies can be a little harsh but it's much better when broken in - had two of them in my 2x12 mésa vertical rectifier, i like the warm tone they provide, but i wanted more bite for my heavy distorsion...
