Warehouse Guitar Speakers

A great option for full-force rock/metal tones.

The Warehouse 12” Veteran 30 speaker takes aim at dethroning the Celestion Vintage 30 as king of the rock guitar speakers. The 60W Veteran 30 improved response and smoothed out upper-mid frequencies, but still pushes hard and clean.


Push some serious air; install one (or more) in your cab. Order today!

        Comments about Warehouse Guitar Speakers Veteran 30 12" 60W British Invasion Guitar Speaker:

        I replaced the stock Celestion 70/80 Speaker in my Traynor YCV40 which sounded pretty good. I've had that amp for many years and never changed it until now. You can hear it here with that speaker: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mw2y1MyG52Q
        And here:
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkxsUvB_s2w
        Keep in mind I'm not using the amps distortion here. Clean channel with a Lovepedal COT set low and a Dalelectro Cool Cat Drive.

        I watched a lot of youtube videos before I bought the Veteran 30. This is supposed to be a knock-off of the Celestion Vintage 30 which has a very pronounced midrange. The Veteran 30 seemed to have a more blanced EQ than the Vintage 30. More lows and not so shrill highs. The 70/80 has a bit of a fizzy quality in the upper frequencies. However, I did a close mike A/B recording of both the 70/80 and the Veteran 30 and was a bit disappointed with the results. The Veteran 30 sounded too dark, like a blanket was thrown over the amp.

        Just playing through the amp, it sounds much better with the Veteran 30. Less fizziness and tighter lows but nice midrange and punchier than the 70/80.

        Tip: If you don't like the sound of your amp, and before you invest in new tubes or speakers, turn down the highs and lows and boost the mids. Throughout the 40 years I've been playing, this is probably the most important thing one can do to improve tone. I've had many players compliment my tone and say they have the same amp but mine sounds better. I tell them to do this and one for one, they come back saying they love the sound of their amp now.

        If you listen closely to the guitar in recordings of all the great rock players, you will hear this midrange hump. This is counter-intuitive to most green players. The cut mids and boosted bass and treble frequencies sound pleasant. However, guitar is a midrange instrument. Those narly and seemingly offensive mids give the guitar it's character and help cut through the mix. You may find you don't even need to change the speaker in many cases if you tweak the eq on your amp this way.

        Comments about Warehouse Guitar Speakers Veteran 30 12" 60W British Invasion Guitar Speaker:

        I was looking to buy a Celestion Vintage 30, then a friend of mine mentioned this company. I was a little skeptical, but I figured for the price (its almost half of a Vintage 30) it's worth a shot. All I can say is WOW. I was blown away. Has the same warmth as a Vintage, but with a smoother mid range. I liked it so much I build a new 2x12 custom cab and purchased the ET65 WGS and installed that along side the Veteran. As far as I'm concerned my search for tone is complete. I use it with an old 80's Marshall JCM 800.

          Awesome speaker, paired with an ET65 has killer tone... Very noticeable difference from my Celestion V30 speakers. Richer, warmer, better..

            Comments about Warehouse Guitar Speakers Veteran 30 12" 60W British Invasion Guitar Speaker:

            I installed this speaker in a closed back birch ply 2x12 by Coyote Cabs along with a WGS ET65. These speakers sounded perfect from the beginning, only to improve upon break-in! Have used them so far with a JCM800 2204 as well as a home built JCM800 2203 with KT88's and a vintage Bassman. WGS offers many different sounding speakers that all share a similar sensitivity rating, so it is easy to mix speakers in a cab! WGS is a small company that deserves respect and I highly recommend their product based on my experience so far! I am glad Musician's Friend carries these speakers.
