OVERVIEW

Vintage tone with modern precision.

Combining decades of experience with advanced measurement and analysis, the V-Type has been built using a carefully balanced recipe of old andnew design techniques. It produces a heady, exciting modern vintage sound that just makes you want to keep on playing: a speaker that delivers authentic Celestion tone whatever your style.The V-type is a sweet sounding speaker with a superbly balanced tonal signature that imparts a vintage musicality to your tone. Clean sounds are true across the lows, mids and highs, with just enough upper-mid chime and HF sparkle to add clarity and definition. Crank it up for a sizzling overdrive and raw rock tones, withplenty of mid-band warmth to give body and substance to lead-note playing.

    Comments about Celestion V-Type 12" 70W Guitar Amp Speaker:

    Ive been playing through a bugera 333xl combo for years and recently built my own 1 12" cabinet. I put the v-type speaker in the cabinet and it sounds incredible. I compared the 2x12 stock speakers to the 1x12 v type using the same amp and it matches the 2 x12 volume wise while the clarity and response is greatly improved. If you're wondering if you should use these to replace your stock speakers or put in an empty cab, the answer is yes!

      Comments about Celestion V-Type 12" 70W Guitar Amp Speaker:

      I replace the two stock Jensens in my De Ville , with the V celestions. My amp sounds amazing now and a great price for an upgrade.

      Comments about Celestion V-Type 12" 70W Guitar Amp Speaker:

      This was in my 68 Vintage Modified Deluxe Reverb and frankly my first thought was, "Oh, okay - Celestion and Fender have made a deal and this is probably a generic low end speaker just carrying the Celestion name for sales appeal." If so, then great because the V-Type has turned out to be one of my favorite speakers and I own a whole lot of speakers. Whatever I play through it just comes out right. Natural, easy and balanced no matter what you throw at it - clean, crunch, or saturated. And, important to me, it has a tight bass response with no boominess. If I had to nit pick, I would say it may lack a slight bit of the upper end tingle and clang that you might find in the very high priced speakers. Nevertheless, every time I play it I come away pleased because it is so competent and poised - it just makes everything sound right. Because of that, I think it is in the top two or three best-bang-for-the-buck all around speakers out there.
