Overview

The original G12M of the 1960s was Celestion's first guitar speaker to use a ceramic magnet and paved the way for high power guitar amplifiers. The G12M uses a medium weight magnet to produce a sound that is smooth and warm but bright enough to hold its own against any rock backline.Known simply these days as the 'Greenback', the G12M's fabled 'brown tone' is characterized by a warm, controlled low-end, a rich, vocal mid-range and a delicate, detailed top-end. Loaded into a 4x12 and driven hard, these speakers exude warm, crunchy chords and sweet searing single-notes.

      Comments about Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" Speaker 16 Ohm:

      In my Marshall DSL40c, I replaced Seventy 80 speaker with this Creamback. I really think it sounds great and improved the sound. I suppose tone is subjective though. I notice that one of the other big music stores (sweet water) now has a special version of the DSL40c that comes with this speaker, probably helped me make the decision to buy. I was considering a Vintage 30 and would still like to try one. For now I have this creamback and the DSL40c fricken sounds awesome.

      Comments about Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" Speaker 16 Ohm:

      This is a cut and paste from my G12H review, it applies to any speaker purchase IMO. I started by looking at the various frequency response curves at Celestion's site. I was actually considering purchase of the Celestion EVH speakers. I ended up purchasing 1 G12H and 1 G12M. In short, you really can't tell from sound bytes on the internet as to how a speaker will sound in your cab with your rig. So, do the best you can by comparing the frequency response graphs to speakers you are familiar with and listen to the sound bytes on the web through decent home speakers or high quality head phones. Still won't tell you how the speaker will sound with your gear, but, its a jumping off point if your going to spend this kind of money on a guitar speaker. Speaking of price, I personally think 12M and H are a bit over priced, however, I also know in electronics, you get what you pay for and I expect years of service from these speakers provided I do my part and take care of them. Best of luck!

      Rock on!

      Comments about Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" Speaker 16 Ohm:

      Purchased this speaker and a G12H-75 to replace the Seventy-80's that came with my Blackstar HT-60. I saw the combination of M and H Celestions being used for Rock/Blues combo's. WOW...what a difference. Gone is that fizzy sound. The G12H-75 cuts through with authority and the G12M-65 is warm and not muddy. Going to build an extension cab with two more of these. The Blackstar HT-60 is going to crank at high volumes. Try this combo you will love it!
