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

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."

Amazing Speakers

By Mathew the Hammer Oliver

from San Clemente, CA

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

I have a limited editon Fender hot rod deluxe that came with one of these in it. Compared to other hot rod deluxes it brightens it up alot. I also just got a twin reverb and the guy before me put these in it and they sound pretty good too. (They are 60 watt a peice and its an 85 watt amp, but its fine because its running parallel so each speaker only gets half the wattage). They break up a little more than the jensens, but for some sounds its good. Overall these are really nice speakers!

Celestion Vintage 30

By FireInCairo82

from Portage, IN

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

I found Vintage 30 in stock at a Guitar Center 45 minutes from me. I have a Fender Roc Pro 1000 Combo 1*12 and a GE412 cabinet. I replaced the stock Fender speaker in the combo with this one. WOW. I will no longer be looking for a new head. I couldn't be happier. The difference is ridiculous. We play everything from Prince to Marilyn Manson; it handles it all. The dirty channels are beautiful and the clean is sparkling. All the talk about Celestion losing quality by outsourcing is rubbish. Buy it, you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to to finish my GE412 with Vintage 30's and Greenbacks in an X pattern.

8 ohm celestion vintage 30's

By Espkh502ltd

from PA

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

I know that when you put four of these together the sound you get is amazing, i power them through a 100 watt mesa dual rectifier. These V30s are perfect for metal, very low end sound and great for screaming highs. Just think about it, if you want the best sound why not buy the best speaker? vintage 30

Just what I was looking for

By Bucky Duster

from B-More Maryland Hon!

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

The Celestion Vintage 30 speakers have a nice FAT magnet that doesn't saturate quickly so the speakers response curve stays consistent even at high volume levels. They have a really nice balanced Midrange, solid low end and highs that are never shrill or "brittle" sounding. Just pop four of these into a Marshall 1960A or 1960B cabinet and you'll see what I'm talking about.

The sound your looking for

By Todd Bowen

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

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

Celestion Vintage 30s are amazing.

By CD9266

from York, PA

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

I bought these after playing through many amps running through Vintage 30s are Guitar Center. I must say these are perhaps the best speakers in the world for hard rock and metal. I put them in my Crate 4x12 cabinet and my sound changed majorly for the better. Unfortunately I think that I should find a new cabinet to put them in because sometimes my sound gets muddy even when I do not have the gain and bass maxed. But these are awesome speakers and I recommend them to everyone playing rock, hard rock, or metal.

Yes yes yes

By greg

from oceanside ca

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

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!

      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.
