I bought this speaker recently and I put it in an original vintage amp (a Hohner with many many tubes). I replaced the original vintage speaker and I must tell you that this speaker sounds better than the original speaker. If you look closely you can see that Celestion is indeed built after those vintage speakers. Now I get a very warm sound. I play Hendrix stuff and I must say that you can't get authentic sound with normal amps ans normal speakers. That's why I bought the Celestion Vintage 30. Unfortunate nowadays guitar amps don't let you hear the best harmonics of your guitar. All guitars (no matter that they are Gibson, Fender or cheap stuff) sound the same. But a good guitar amp and with a Celestion Vintage 30 you can hear the big differences between guitars.Conclusion - Celestion is the one of the best speakers from the market.

I have an old V30, made in England. It is one of my favorite speakers. Rich and full. I bought a new made in China, thinking it would be the same. It is brittle and high. Test before you buy this.

          Replaced the stock Eminence speaker in my Blues Jr. III, and made a huge difference in my sound. Just the right amount of breakup when driven harder, and adds the punch in the mids the amp was missing.

                I replaced a GWS Invader speaker with this speaker in a custom built point to point boutique Anderson combo amp and what an incredibly amazing difference it has made. This speaker sounds clear, bell-like, chimey and when pushed, at once, remains tight and articulate while exhibiting a unique musicality with lots of overtones. No flubbyness. In short, this speaker has brought out the best in this high quality amp; a marriage simply meant to be.

                  I replaced one G12T-75 speaker in my 2x12 Marshall 1936. Really blends well mixed with my other G12T-75.

                  The Best Guitar Speaker Ever Made.

                  I recently purchased a Peavey 6505+ 112 combo which has the WORST speaker in any amp ever. You could get a decent tone with major tweaking but it was a chore.
                  I gave up on that speaker rather easily and bought this to replace it.
                  So glad I did. The 6505+ came alive with this speaker. It didn't take too long to break it in. I jammed on it for about 3 days before it really warmed up.
                  If you are thinking about replacing a speaker ESPECIALLY in a 6505+ combo, this is the one to get.

                      I´m really disappointed with this speaker. I bought it here and it was damaged and the worst of all is that MusiciansFriend doesn´t accept a return (I´m clear with politics and stuff) but I´ve been a loyal costumer (I´m from El Salvador, Central America) and I won´t buy again here. Customer service in chat didn´t solve anything just arguing I´m outside of the U.S.

                            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.
