I've had some cabs in the past that just didn't have "it" and I wasn't sure why. They just didn't have that sound I wanted. It was a warm, thick-but-pure sound with a tight bottom end and smooth mids and highs. Once I bought a cab loaded with Vintage 30's, I realized that I'd found "it." I won't touch a cab that isn't loaded with these babies anymore. If you're looking for "it," then look no further.

These speakers are more a name then anything. They do have great low end. They do have crunchy mids. But beware of the highs. They can get brittle fast! And trying to eq that out is next to impossible. You can only cut the treble so much before the sound gets "muffled" I can see how these would be great for metal. But these are not a speaker for everyone

        Bought this to replace a clestion seventy 80 in my Marshall DSL40C after it got water damaged after my basement flooded. I play mostly hard rock and metal, and this has a great over all tone. Highly recommended.

            For what it?s worth... I just watched Warren Haynes? ?rig rundown? on anyoneyoutube and he uses a 4x cab with the V-30?s. (among other amps) I?ve always thought he?s got amazing tone.

            Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

            The picture shown is not what you recieve, you actually get the chinese made speaker but its just a visual thing, it still sounds audibly really good so dont let that fool you. Great and has alot of character compared to my previous stock peavey. It will sound really thin and harsh at first (as with most new guitar speakers) but be sure just to play a good amount to break in the speaker cones, I usually also lie the speaker cone down for a week to let it break in, then the real sound character really shows up, it's really smooth. Good for metal.

            A speaker for all genres

            By 

            from Monterey California

            Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

            I replaced those HORRIBLE stock Eminence speakers in my Diezel oversized 2x12 cab with V-30's, and the difference is like night and day. It can cover a wide range of tones, from crystal clear clean tones for Funk and Pop, to slashing high-gain Rock tones similar to Guthrie Govan. Even super technical Jazz players would have no problem with these speakers. My Ibanez GB10 and GB200 (George Benson signature archtops) sound just as good, if not better, through my V-30 loaded Diezel cab (with Peavy JSX head), than any of those little Fender combos Jazz players use. All in all, a great speaker for any genre of music.

            Love it!!

            Comments about Celestion Vintage 30 60W, 12" Guitar Speaker:

            I bought a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe that had a Celestion Vintage 30 already isntalled (yes, it was bought used). I absolutely love the tone. A friend of mine has a Fender Deville 212 without a celestion and we often compare tones. We both agree the V30 sounds so much better than the stock speaker in Fender amps. As soon as you put the V30 in, you will definitely notice a much better tone. It gives a really warm sound. The clean channels are absolutely amazing and the drive channels are really great as well. I absolutely love using a Fulltone Fulldrive with my amp. It really takes the tone to the next level. I highly recommend upgrading if you haven't already.

            There's a reason why Eddie switched back to these! Even after coming up with his own brand Celestian. Replaced them in my Marshall 2.12 1936 lead cab. It sounded great before but now its just untouchable! Put this cab against anything out there and you will loose. Maybe a jazz player might like something else but who plays jazz anyways? Handles all else with authority!

            The vintage 30s sound great in my combo amp. Warm with tons of bottom end. Leads sound strong. Just the way they should.
