Together, Celestion’s ferrite and neodymium magnet
compression drivers create an extremely
comprehensive product range, providing professional
audio systems builders with optimised high frequency
performance at every price point.
As the original name in guitar loudspeakers, nobody knows
more about manufacturing guitar drivers than Celestion.
Our Originals Series loudspeakers are constructed from
high quality materials and tailored for use in a wide
variety of amplifier types, from digital modellers
through to high-powered all-valve combos.
Developed at Celestion’s state-of-the-art loudspeaker R&D facility in the UK,
this range of pressed steel chassis drivers offer system builders the optimum
combination of performance, reliability and cost. This extensive range of
pressed steel chassis, ferrite magnet loudspeakers is available in a range of
sizes from 4" to 15" diameter.
Hand-assembled at our facility in England, the Celestion Heritage Series
speakers are faithful re-creations of the genre-defining drivers that
stacked up behind the most influential guitar players of all time.
As the precise design, raw material specifications and
manufacturing techniques evolve to accommodate new technologies
and processes over the years, so the sound of a speaker shifts in
subtle increments which, taken collectively, significantly modify the
tone. The Celestion Heritage process identifies the most desirable
version of a driver from a given point in time, and sets about the
painstaking process of regressing the speaker development back to
its origins to recapture the particular sonic qualities of the era.
With particular focus on linear excursion via Finite Element Analysis (FEA) optimised suspension
geometry and magnet topology, NTR provides application-specific control delivering greater low
frequency output, significantly reduced distortion and increased longevity.
With a range extending from a lightweight,space-efficient 6”
mid-range unit to heavy duty 18”sub-bass drivers,
Celestion’s Cast Aluminium LF Ferrite loudspeakers are
purpose designed specifically for applications such as reflex,
scoop, band pass and horn-loaded subwoofers, as well as
for multi-way systems.
From the 60s to the present day, from the British Invasion to modern
pickers like Brad Paisley - the unmistakable, musical sound of the
Alnico magnet guitar speaker, as pioneered by Celestion, continues
to shape popular music.
Back in the late 50s, our friends at Vox and Marshall identified the
need for a dedicated guitar speaker to handle the increasingly loud
and raucous performances. In response, Celestion designed the G12
T530 – the now famous ‘Blue’. The rigid construction and Alnico
magnets made them ideal for a new generation of electric guitarists,
experimenting increasingly with volume and overdrive.
For those that bring the low-end rumble and thunder,
Celestion is proud to offer a full range of powerful bass speakers.
Whether your style is deep, warm pulsating grooves, percussive
rhythmic slap, or all points in-between, Celestion bass
speakers deliver your sound with punch and bold
authority, ensuring you underpin the band with every
note and run.
TN neo series comes from the development team who started using neodymium in the powerful drivers.
The result is a completely new advanced series with steel baskets and powerful neodymium magnets.
In 2010, George Lynch challenged Celestion to build his dream guitar loudspeaker.
He wanted a new style of speaker, blending world-renowned Celestion vintage tonality
with the capability of providing, on demand, a harder-edged and more modern sound.
The result is an ideal balance between a detailed vintage warmth that makes your
lead sound sing, and an up-front attitude that delivers punchier rhythm tones capable of
cutting through the mix.
For more than 50 years, classic Celestion speakers have played a major role in creating the soundtrack of every decade.
Today, Celestion use years of experience to develop guitar loudspeakers that are insisted upon by players across all
musical genres, drawing on our rich sonic legacy while also taking full advantage of modern materials and
manufacturing processes. The result of our ongoing development is a comprehensive
range of vintage and modern voiced speakers with ceramic or neodymium magnets available with a range of
power handling capabilities and sizes. Classic Series speakers are the choice of amplifier designers
and players around the world, ensuring Celestion’s ongoing reputation as The Voice of Rock & Roll.
Throughout his career, whether in the studio
or on the stage, the Celestion 20-watt
‘Greenback’ has played an essential role to
Edward Van Halen in making the tones that
rewrote the book on guitar sound. When it
came time to select speakers for his new
EVH Brand 5150-III signature amp, there was
only one choice – Celestion.
The Heritage Series G12M faithfully
reproduces the sonic qualities of the original
’60s version Greenback used to make EVH
tone from day one. With the addition of a
black rear can featuring the EVH logo and his
unmistakable red, white and black stripes,
the G12EVH was born. Unmistakable look,
but more importantly unmistakable tone.
