OVERVIEW

Evokes the sounds of the classic 1960s and '70s rock bands.

The Celestion G12H is a reissue of their 12" guitar speaker that was re-released in 1994 for the Celestion 70th anniversary. Loud and proud thanks to its heavy magnet structure, the G12H provides a fusion of the Vintage 30 and the Greenback speaker characteristics, producing a thick, warm and syrupy sound while still retaining a tight and focused bottom end.

When played clean the G12H remains clear and musical without ever sounding harsh. In overdrive, pick attack is vividly articulated with sustained notes trailing off into warm harmonic tones.

FEATURES
  • 12" guitar speaker
  • Fusion of Vintage 30 and Greenback
  • 50 oz. ceramic magnet
  • 1.75" copper voice coil
  • 75-5000Hz frequency response

    Comments about Celestion G12H Anniversary 30W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

    I used this speaker in 212 cab with a Guitar Warehouse Reaper that I also purchased from MF. The cab sounds great with all the amps I've paired it with, but I primarily use it with an Egnator Rebel 30.

        Just popped this into my Crate V18 and what a change. The tone on my 97 Strat came alive and my jazz guitar has a warmer tone than expected. Overall the ease of this transaction, the quickness of shipment and the quality of the product allows me to highly recommend this item and MC for good service.

          Comments about Celestion G12H Anniversary 30W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

          The G12H is an amazing speaker. It is very even and warm in tone. It has that traditional Celestion break-up. Further since a "H"eavy magnet, it keeps the tone "tight" and not loose, which I like. This speaker is good for all kinds of different music genre from blues to metal and I use it exclusively which having many other speakers including the G12H Vintage, T75's, Creambacks, EV 12M, etc.

            the 90th Anniversary G12H30 is a hit or miss to me. It sounds great with my Fargen Mini Plex, but subpar with my Granger V20 Nitro. It takes a lot of fiddling the EQ to get the right mix.

              Comments about Celestion G12H Anniversary 30W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

              I recently picked up a Silver Stripe Bandit which was equipped with a Sheffield speaker. Not a bad speaker but relatively vanilla in tone.

              Got my hands on a broken-in G12H30 when I bought a different amp and swapped the Sheffield for the Celestion.

              I'm absolutely floored at this speaker / amp combination. Even though it's only a 30W speaker, it handles the Bandit's output exceptionally well (and I'm not cranking the Bandit to max). On the clean channel at about 4 on the dial, it's incredibly loud and there's an beautiful breakup that complements the amp's circuit. I know there will be purists out there who disagree, but the tone is frighteningly similar to a DRRI on the edge of breakup. Seriously.

              I'm not partial to any manufacturer. I play what I feel brings me the best tone and functionality and believe me, this speaker with this amp is an absolute winner.

              If you have a Bandit I strongly recommend giving this speaker a try.

                I recieved the speaker in record time and was pleased. I put it in my orange tiny terror 15 whatt combo which is the original speaker and it sounds better than ever.

                    I have a british made G12H anniversary. It has served me well in a Laney LC30 combo, never a harsh tone when turned up loud.
                    Not the tightest bass, but the Laney is a cathode biased 30 watt EL84 amp with low voltages on the tubes and no negative feedback combined with a small output transformer, so that is really not expected.

                    I have tried the G12H in a tiny Laney cub 12r but not so well balanced. The cab is a very small and has a completely open back.

                    The speaker is loud and with most loud celestions with heavy magnets and a lot of midrange, they do need either a closed back cab or an open back of considerable size and construction to sound their best.
                    Stay above 4500 cubic inches and you are rewarded with a less boxy sound.

                        Comments about Celestion G12H Anniversary 30W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

                        Like one of the reviewers, mine is not from England. To have an image up that shows a stamp implying that it was built in England is the typical hedging. It is easy to check. Just look at the speaker at the bottom of the back and if it says '"International" in it, it is not built in England. The rating I gave it does not reflect this directly. That is, I rated it only on what it sounds like.

                        This speaker came with the egnater 15 watt Tweaker combo. I thought "cool". I am sorry, but the various "greenbacks" are much better, and I tested it in the egnater mentioned. This G12H is not a horrible speaker, but it is not great either when compared to the greenbacks. It may just be me, as how a thing sounds is probably 30% completely subjective.

                        The speaker is not a bad buy. It depends on what you currently have. But, the greenbacks are so much better.

                        G12H

                        By William Shebby

                        from Phoenixville, Pa

                        Comments about Celestion G12H Anniversary 30W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

                        I chose the G12H along with the V30 to replace my stock Wolverine speakers in my TSL-602. A lot of people would say how "muddy" my TSL sounded with the stock speakers, but I guess I had just become accustomed to it. What a difference I noticed once the speakers were changed to the G12H / V30 pair. I play a lot of AC/DC, Maiden, Priest, Rush, Zep, and Sabbath and these speakers sound fantastic. I get a lot of clarity and a beautiful growling on the bottom end that just puts a smile on my face every time I play on the E,A & D strings. I play a Gibson Les Paul and a custom Carvin and use a Holy Grail nano reverb on the lead channel through the effects loop for solos and the sound is surreal. On my crunch channel I'm running a DynaComp straight through the front of the amp. All of these elements come together to produce the sound I've been looking for. I scored the speaker as a 9 on quality because I've only had it for about one month so far.
