OVERVIEW

A 90W vintage-tone powerhouse.

With a 90-watt power rating, the Celestion Cream is purpose-built for vintage tones, whatever kind of amp you use. By applying new technologies and manufacturing methods developed during the creation of our Creamback speakers, Celestion has been able to deliver a higher power rating while preserving the very essence of an alnico guitar speaker. Delivering a glorious, laid-back attack, the Cream exudes warm lows and a brilliant bell-like chime. It has smooth and organic mids, further characterised by a fine-grained detail that adds a high-definition quality to the vocal range.

The Cream has been specially created to bring alnico class to all kinds of amps from 1-watt to 90-watts. It conveys a satisfying warmth, detailed expressiveness and exceptional musicality, even at low power levels.

Choose 8 or 16 ohms.

    Comments about Celestion Cream 90W 12" Alnico Guitar Speaker:

    I use this in a vintage Fender amp over 30 watts with a single 12" speaker. I would recommend it for a 2X12 use especially in the high power Twin and Twin Reverb or any cab. Would work equally well in a 4X12 Marshall cab or any other brand for increased sound quality. You could use two of these Cream Alnicos with two ceramic magnet Celestion creamback G1275s for a unique sound. These new Cream Alnico 90 watt speakers are the answer to any high power situations where great tone is needed. A great upgrade to the 12" Alnico Gold where more than 50 watts handling power is needed.....Mark K.

      Comments about Celestion Cream 90W 12" Alnico Guitar Speaker:

      The guitar speaker cabinet along with the speakers themselves are a very large ( more than 50 %) of our tone and realism when looking at the whole big picture of your rig. we spend lots of money on guitars, amps, pedals, and then what throw 2% or even 10% of cost on the speaker?!
      This speaker has changed the way i play, the way i hear music and brings out subtle nuance that only the masters have achieved. Do yourself a favor, if you love Alnico, if you love great tone, if you want the very best buy this. If you want to have the high power rating yet the sweet singing classic tone only a Celestion Alnico can provide Buy this!

            Replaced the stock Celestion in my 65 Amps Tupelo. IMHO - Unbelievable difference in tone. Never used an Alnico speaker before but this is the sound that I have been hearing in my head for years. Worth every penny to me!!

                Amazing speaker for my higher wattage needs. I've been a fan of the alnico gold speakers for years now. The cream alnicos are flat out perfect. I wouldn't change a thing, they actually made my cabinet lighter over the 90W ceramic speaker.

                  I've been playing guitar for a number of years and I'm always looking to improve my overall sound. The Celestion Cream Alnico's provided the perfect solution as they've given me a crystal clear clean tone with smooth mid's and a nice highly refined grainy distortion. I would certainly recommend.
