OVERVIEW

Reissue of a classic, but with better handling capacity.

Back in the late '60s, the G12H was created by fixing an 'H' type (heavy) magnet to the body of a G12M guitar speaker. Result: a speaker with more power and a different tonal balance: firmer bass and a more pronounced top end. So we added an 'H' magnet to the G12M-65 Creamback, create a speaker that delivers the sonic signature of a G12H combined with Creamback levels of power handling. The result is the G12H-75 Creamback. It delivers 75 watts of power handling with ease and has unmistakeable G12H tone, with a tighter low end than the G12M-65 Creamback and a punchier, more dynamic high end. The H magnet brings additional focus, body and girth to the Creamback tone. It thickens single notes, resulting in a highly articulate, vocal character. These additional characteristics mean that the G12H-75 Creamback offers exceptional performance when used for lead guitar and sounds massive loaded into a 4x12 cab.

      Comments about Celestion G12H-75 Creamback 12" Speaker 16 ohm:

      I bought a Marshall DSL 40c 4 months ago, and have had buyers' remorse ever since due to the cheap, trebly, tinny sound. Had to turn the Treble knob way down, clean channel was flat; overall, no bottom end at all. Kinda heartbroken with my new Marshall. But at first, I didn't know what the problem was. Did a ton of web research, and I saw that many other users of this amp replaced the stock Celestion Seventy/80 speaker with this one. Finally was able to get this one and BOOM! After the 10-minute installation, I was up and running with practically a BRAND NEW AMP! Now this thing sounds like a Marshall. With the stock speaker, I didn't even want to play it, and it made my second guitar sound like a cheap, bargain guitar (it's not at all, but for some reason, the pickups didn't agree with that stock speaker). I get that the DSL series is not made in England, but those stock speakers are junk, even if they are Celestions. But the G12H-75 Creamback made me love life again! And Musician's Friend shipped it to me a day or 2 sooner than expected! Great experience for my first MF purchase.

        Comments about Celestion G12H-75 Creamback 12" Speaker 16 ohm:

        Amazing sound quality out of the box. I put it in a Marshall TSL601 1x12 60W tube combo. Tung-Sol EL34's. Waited for the 16ohm so that I can have the option of running a 1x12 extension later since my amp can switch between 16ohm and 8ohm.

        I used to have to turn the presence to around 7 with the stock wolverine speaker to get good sound, but this speaker has full sound without cranking the tone knobs. Working on breaking it in because I have read it just gets better and better with time.
