Overview

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.

Best Speaker for Low Wattage Combos

By Thomas

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

I've been using this speaker in low wattage combos for a while now. It has the right combination of breakup and clarity, particularly of bass notes. I learned of it from TQR. In a shootout, they rated it tops. I recently acquired a Special Edition '65 Princeton Reverb with a 12" speaker. It came with a Jensen P12Q in it. The Jensen didn't handle the amp up above 7 on the volume very well. So, this has found a new home and sounds great. If you have a combo 20 watts and under, give this speaker a try. It's the cheapest and easiest mod you can do to improve your amp

      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.

                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.

                      used 2 G12H 30's and 2 Vintage 30's, X pattern in a 4x12 cab. Great classic and hard rock sound. Speakers break up nicely

                        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.
