Celestion

Go for the gold.

Following tremendous feedback received for the Gold 12", Celestion realized there was also a need for a guitar speaker that conveyed the Alnico mellowness of the original Blue, with the speed and response of a 10" driver.

The 40W Celestion G10 Alnico Gold guitar speaker is the ultimate 10" speaker, blending unmistakable Alnico class with a rich low-end, creamy midrange and vintage chiming top-end. Springy, warm, revealing, and highly expressive, the 40W Celestion speaker can be used singly or in pairs to add a classy sheen to any amp, or in a 4x10 configuration for higher volume depth, warmth and shimmer, with less of the boom associated with 4x12 cabinets.

Celestion are renowned for high quality loudspeakers, used on stage and in clubs, theaters and other venues the world over. From early radio loudspeakers to complex sound reinforcement systems, Celestion speakers have helped to shape the history of sound reproduction.

Since the company's birth in 1924, Celestion has paid meticulous attention to every product detail, combining innovative ideas with skillful craftsmanship.

Today, Celestion continues to manufacture loudspeakers and components for many different applications. Incorporating both modern and traditional technology, the company incorporates years of experience into advancing the future of loudspeaker design with great success.

      Comments about Celestion G10 Gold 40W, 10" Alnico Guitar Speaker:

      Great sound in a Super Champ XD, tamed the fizzy of the stock speaker and gave the superb vintage warmth Alnico is known for.
      The Celestion eliminated the "practice amp" sound and took the amp into a tonal sphere that the lowest common denominator speaker the amp shipped with, can't create.
      Broke it in loud and clean for a few hours and the sound has improved daily. Alnico has a sound all it's own and if you like it, this speaker delivers.

        Comments about Celestion G10 Gold 40W, 10" Alnico Guitar Speaker:

        I installed two of these in my two Fender Super Champ X2's not really knowing what to expect. What these speakers do to a Super Champ X2 is truly amazing. Tight pronounced bass notes and sweet mids and highs. Well worth the price IMO.
        Note: When installing these speakers in a Super Champ be aware that the protective power tube "cage" that is firmly attached to the upper rear valance panel will rub against the G10's speaker frame. This problem is probably unique to the Super Champ. I raised the valance panel up approximately 1/4" giving a bit of clearance between tube cage and speaker frame as well as maintaining proper clearance between the top of the power tube and the bottom of the cage. With the new power handling capacity of the Celestions I assumed there would be more heat generated by the tube circuitry when the amp is used at higher volumes so I purchase a couple of 4" computer desk fans and directed the air flow towards the interior of the amp as a precautionary measure.

        A Perfect 10?

        By Tone Obsessed

        from York, PA (nowhere)

        Comments about Celestion G10 Gold 40W, 10" Alnico Guitar Speaker:

        Good 10s are hard to come by and this offering from Celestion is one of the better speakers available. Tone wise the mids and highs are pretty pronounced; the bass is there but not quite as strong as you might like: you've really got to like that old school Alnico sound to really dig these horns...if you do, all is golden. I'd prefer slightly lower wattage and a lower price, but what else is new? All in all a nice speaker and one of the few Celestions still made in the UK. Worth a serious look.

        Comments about Celestion G10 Gold 40W, 10" Alnico Guitar Speaker:

        i've been through dozens of 10" speakers trying to find the perfect fit for my old 6g2 princeton amp. none of the high end 10" speakers i tried quite did it for me: too loud, to farty, to peaky, etc. i even tried a celestion blue with a new baffle: too much speaker for the little cab IMO. the g10 gold is perfection. not too loud, strong bass at any level, and the blue's signature warm trebles. this speaker chimes and compresses in a way that reminds me of the lofi, nostalgic warmth of an old record player.

        Comments about Celestion G10 Gold 40W, 10" Alnico Guitar Speaker:

        I got one of these little babies and dropped it in a Mesa Boogie 5:25 Express. All I can say is WOW!This baby blows the doors off the stock Mesa speaker. Notes jump out at you, crisp and punchy. No more pharting out on the deep bass notes. Literaly like taking a blanket off your amp!
