I have one amplifier with EL84 tubes and it has a celestian classic lead 80. It''s perfect for humbucker guitars. I have another amp with 6v6s that''s quite a bit darker Even when playing single coil strat type guitars. I replaced the classic lead 80 in that can with this speaker and it really opened things up. Sounds great. That said, thid speaker''s a lot more expensive than most other speakers.

The finest Speakers Celestion Makes!

Easily among the best speakers Celestion produces! Do this though!!! VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! Do not be romanticized about the low wattage! Even 4 of these in a 4 X 12 cab and a 50 watt Marshall Head powering the cab.... It isn''t enough as a 50 watt head can "spike"... See more
Easily among the best speakers Celestion produces! Do this though!!! VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! Do not be romanticized about the low wattage! Even 4 of these in a 4 X 12 cab and a 50 watt Marshall Head powering the cab.... It isn''t enough as a 50 watt head can "spike" causing one or more of your very expensive speakers to blow! I accidentally bought two of these without thinking and was going to load them into a 2 X 12 cab making it a 16 ohm 30 watt cabb and power it with my 50 watt small box plexi. LOL! That might have lasted one week! If That! So, I smartened up and bought two Celestion Gold''s and now the Cab is rated at 100 Watts and I don''t care what anyone says! They sound the same! If your going to pump any type of serious power through these please reconsider buying the Celestion Gold''s rated at 50 watts a speaker. Other than that... The Celestion Blue, Gold and Creams are the finest speakers Celestion makes!

Took awhile to narrow down the best sounding speaker for my 2x12; fortunately I had the sound comparison samples on Celestion''s site along with a large collection from ConeTones (http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/GTRAudio) to audition. And in both cases... at least in terms of the high-gain tones that matter to me, Blue was best. Some others I swapped out included the Celestion V30, G12-M & G12-H; the Blues were the most "mix-ready" of the four, free of hollow boxiness & barkiness, well-balanced and clear without being ice-picky. Also, these are actually made in Ipswich, England which I suppose doesn''t hurt.

The downside of these speakers is the low power handling (15W) and the price, of course. But you get what you pay for. Problem solvers!

I''ve many kinds of speakers over many years, including Celestion Alnico Cream and Gold. This speaker just has something special. If it can handle your amp''s power, go for it. You won''t be disappointed.

I put this speaker in a Tweed Deluxe 5E3 clone and it sounds great.
Beautiful full clean sound and perfect break up when pushed.
I use these speakers in my Vox AC 30 & AC 15 as well as 65 Black face Deluxe.
This speaker makes every amp sound better.

You be the judge, but it must come pretty close, in the right context that is. I have one of these in a VoxAC15 and also a Tweed Deluxe 5E3 clone. It mates perfectly with the Vox style amps. In the Fender tweeds it''s a close call between this and the Weber 12A125 for me.... See more

In the Fender tweeds it''s a close call between this and the Weber 12A125 for me. The Celestion is a bit fuller in the bass and rockier sounding, whereas the Weber is perhaps more authentic to the original.
