The Celestion G12-65

Return to the mighty Celestion.

Posted in Loudspeakers & Cabinets

For years I have used ElectroVoice EVM12L's in my rigs but following a lot of experimentation have loaded one of my TwoRock 2x12's with Celestion G12-65's

It's not that I am not happy with my vintage Electrovoice EVM 12L's but I have two TwoRock 2x12 cabinets and thought it was a good idea to have the option for a different tone.

The choice of speaker was as a direct result of talking to Brandon Montgomery of Bludotone Amp Works. I am very fortunate to own one of his Bludodrive amps.

Guitar legends Robben Ford and Larry Carlton use and had a hand in the re-release of these speakers which are part of the 'Heritage' series and still manufactured in the UK.

Of course in my early career, I used piles of Celestion loaded cabs in the past by Marshall (G12M) and Orange (G12H) but fell out of love. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that! Recently I rekindles the love by buying a Germino Classic 45 and Vintage 4x12; fantastic!!!

They have a rich low mid and a lovely presence in the 2-4K region which really suits the Bludo. Davy Knowles recently borrowed my amp (liking it so much he ordered one) and was getting great results using a vintage Marshall Cabinet loaded with G12M.

I will shortly be recording a video tour of my rig and guitars. If you are interested, please drop me a line and I will add you to my mailing list.

Cheers and see you back soon!
