OVERVIEW

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.

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.

This is a high quality speaker that I just did not bond with. It was purchased for use in a Fender Princeton Reverb Reissue. I read many positive reviews (including ones for this specific amp and speaker combination) and thought I would give this highly regarded speaker a try. I gained thickness, volume, and midrange, but lost articulation, which I need. No amount of EQ adjustment would give me a sound I liked. I followed the recommended break in process from Celestion. I put the stock Jensen C10R back in and it sounds so much better...to me. There was nothing wrong with the G10 Gold, it just was not what I liked. So your mileage may vary. Obviously a lot of folks really like this speaker, so perhaps their preferences are just different than mine.

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

      After trying Jensens, Eminence Rajin Cajun, Various other Ceramic 10s, this is by far the very best sounding 10 inch driver I have ever heard. It sounded killer right out of the box, but now that I have played through it nice and loud for hundreds of hours, the sound just blows me away. No matter what style/genre you play, no matter if you play Clean Rootsy Ballads, British Invasion, Classic Rock, Funk, Heavy Metal, Blues, Jazz, Country this speaker will improve every aspect of your sound. For a small tube combo there simply is no better 10 inch speaker than this. Get the best forget the rest!

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

        I just installed this incredible speaker in a Super Champ XD and I am stunned. It sounds like a different amplifier. I have tried Jensen's, Eminence RC, Blue Fender's, Gold fendre's, Ceramic Celestions and none even come close to what this speaker can do. I now can get clean beautiful feedback on the clean channel. The 16 presets are all improved across the entire spectrum. At every volume and for every idiom and or genre, this speaker just delivers. Don't waste another second trying less expensive so called "Upgrades" buy this one speaker and your music will sound better from one second to the next. I will be buying 2 gold 12's for my 1966 Bandmaster cabinet that I use with a Seymour Duncan Convertible.
        WOW, WHAT A SPEAKER!

              I use isolation cabinets in my recording studio. I have a Randall cab that holds a 10" speaker. Something made me want to try a Gold in there and try it for guitar. I'm sure glad I did.

                This very loud alnico driver has made my Tone King Falcon able to express an assortment of harmonic overtones and complexities that I wasn't experiencing before. Before it sounded nice, but I already knew some details were being taken away from a extremely well designed circuit. When I put this speaker in, my amp is a lot louder, and after 50 or so hours of playing, I must say that the character of this amp has only gotten better. When played clean, the crispiness of this amp extends across all frequencies better, with a faint bell like chime that only couples to the amps sound. The bass is defined much better, the mids sing with more complexity, and the top chimes a bit in a sweet way. When overdriven, the character is still there and the harmonics are also overdriven, very nice! I can imagine this speaker making any circuit express its qualities a lower end speaker won't allow. Only sounds better when you break it in more, becomes more organic and fluid.

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

                This speaker sounds great in my 5w/1w Marshall DSL5C combo practice amp. I have now tried a ceramic speaker upgrade and an alnico upgrade in this amp and I prefer the alnico hands down. There were merits to both, but here is my experience:

                I upgraded the cheap stock 10" Celestion Ten-30 speaker in my Marshall to a Celestion G10 Vintage after I bought the amp and it improved the sound, but I always wondered what an alnico speaker would sound like. The cost of the Gold 10 was prohibitive, but after 12 months of playing with the Vintage I finally bit the bullet and bought the Gold. After first putting it in the amp I wasn't sure I liked the changes; it broke up a little differently in frequencies I wasn't used to, so I pulled it and put the 10" Vintage back in the amp. After playing the Vintage again I instantly decided the Gold 10 was better. I haven't looked back since. If you buy this, do the switch and hear for yourself.

                The ceramic Vintage has more bass, but everything else about the Gold is better. How can I describe it? It is tighter in the low end, just tighter and more controlled and better everywhere, more musical, slightly more defined everywhere, it doesn't lose any punchy-ness, it plays better with my pedals and improved them, distortion is more even, it chimes and rings like a bell on the cleans, it gets better with age as it breaks in, and on and on. I love playing with this speaker in my amp. I can't stop playing. I rush home from work to hear it. The reviews online are accurate and there is a reason there is so much praise for this speaker. You can spend months looking for a cheaper alnico that sounds this good or you can save time and spend the money for this one.

                Last thing I would say is that like everything GAS, this speaker is great but not the be all end all. It's a good upgrade but not the ultimate solution for your amp. It won't turn a bad amp into a good one, but I love the difference it made in mine.

                  turns a good amp into a great one and significantly adds volume to combo amps, and adds low end and punch. Chimey highs. Very good value - the 10 is the cost ssweet spot - the 12 is overpriced for what it is. 2 of these 10's has the same kind of presence as a 2x12 combo in a smaller packge

                    Used this 9 inch 40 W speaker on a 25 W Westbury solid state guitar amp I use for practice when I dont want to plug in the Laney 50W tube amp with 4-12 inch speakers. Works great. Frequency response is excellent over entire audible range. This speaker has a 4 times heavier magnet than the origional factory speaker, weighing in at 4 lbs. I physically weighed them both. This speaker is a bit pricey, but worth it. You will not be dissapointed.

                    I purchased this speaker to try and smooth out one of my amps and give a more sparkling top end while retaining the low end. This speaker did the trick. My only negative comment is the same with all Alnico speakers I have tried. They seem to compress the tone as compared to ceramic speakers sound more open. Still a great speaker choice when paired with the proper amp and cab.
