Handles high output in vintage style.

In the '80s, Celestion set out to develop a modern speaker capable of delivering classic Alnico Blue-style British guitar tone, but able to handle much more power and overdrive. This was achieved by coupling a Heavy 'H' ceramic magnet (the closest in performance to Alnico) with a new cone and voice coil.

The result was the Vintage 30, Celestion’s most revealing speaker. It features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top end. Use on its own to reveal the complexities in hand-wired boutique amps, or in a 4x12 for a wonderfully intricate three-dimensional crunch. Over the past 25 years, the Vintage 30 sound has been captured on thousands of recordings from a diverse range of players.

    The Best

    By eclipseman

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

    This is my favorite speaker. I have a pair in an oversized 2x12" cab and they sound great. Comparing them to other speakers is laughable. Some people like greenbacks better or say another brand can do this sound just as well, but I have yet to find something that compares with a vintage 30. Some people say they are too bright, but I like the articulation.

    Worth the price

    By Larry-XoEkG

    from Washington State

    Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

    I replaced the stock speaker in my Carvin Vintage 16 with this and what a difference! Not that the stock unit was bad or anything. It's just the way the Celestion sounds to my ears. It really improved the bottom end while retaining the upper frequency sparkle. The magnet is massive compared to the stock unit and really delivers the 16 watts the amp can dish out. This driver is a winner in my book.

    Nice vintage sounds

    By Valentin Pupezescu

    from Romania, Bucharest

    Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

    I bought this speaker recently and I put it in an original vintage amp (a Hohner with many many tubes). I replaced the original vintage speaker and I must tell you that this speaker sounds better than the original speaker. If you look closely you can see that Celestion is indeed built after those vintage speakers. Now I get a very warm sound. I play Hendrix stuff and I must say that you can't get authentic sound with normal amps ans normal speakers. That's why I bought the Celestion Vintage 30. Unfortunate nowadays guitar amps don't let you hear the best harmonics of your guitar. All guitars (no matter that they are Gibson, Fender or cheap stuff) sound the same. But a good guitar amp and with a Celestion Vintage 30 you can hear the big differences between guitars.Conclusion - Celestion is the one of the best speakers from the market.

    Hot, Hot, Hot

    By johnnyf220

    from Tualatin, OR USA

    Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

    Bought this as a replacement for a stock speaker in a Pignose 60W tube amp. WOW -- the amp went from sweet to a Dynamite Powerhouse. The V30 smokes with great balance and projection. Volume and clarity radically improved. Tone controls on pups now extremely active. You can't go wrong with this choice. Highly recommended for all types of rockin guitar.

    Vintage 30's rule!

    By Guitar God 1972

    from Austin Texas

    Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

    I have been using Vintage 30's for about a year and have never received so many compliments on my tone in my 15 years of playing! The Celestions just handle my amp and make it sound good. I use them live and in the studio. The best speakers I have ever owned.
