Listen to any Hendrix recording and chances are you're hearing the unmistakably creamy tones of the G12H.
The G12M may have become a classic, but it was the G12H with its heavier magnet that really characterized the sound of '60s rock guitar. Originally available in 2 versions--low resonance for bassists and high resonance for guitarists--both were embraced by guitar players for their unique tonal characteristics.
The Celestion G12H is a perfect re-creation of the low resonance model, right down to the voice coil former material; glue formulations; and vintage, solder-only tag panel. Suitable for use in all cabs, it exudes thick, syrupy tones with a deep, growling bottom end.
That creamy tone straight out of the '60s can be yours right now.

Comments about Celestion G12H Heritage Guitar Speaker 8 Ohms:
The G12H Heritage 55hz (16ohm) is by far the best speaker I've heard to date. I'm not going to waste time describing sound with subjective words like "creamy" or "Scooped Mids. I was once a Vintage 30 guy but no longer. It's taken me 25 years to find the sound this speaker provides. Save some time a reasearch the purchase of a G12H 30 Heritage -- you wont be sorry! They are just that good!!!
I just ordered 2 more from Music 123.
