Celestion G12M-65 Creamback Speakers
The Tone Beast.
Periphery, Animals as Leaders
The G12M Greenback is perhaps the definitive vintage Celestion ceramic magnet guitar speaker. Developed in the mid-sixties it was quickly adopted by players like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page who typified the louder and more aggressive blues rock playing styles that came to characterize that era.
The G12M-65 Creamback produces the familiar woody G12M tone but handles greater power, making it ideally suited for today’s amps when a vintage tone is desired. The increased power handling brings with it additional low end grunt complementing the warm and vocal mid range crunchy upper- mids and sweet refined highs.
A Creamback built with an 'H' type (heavy) magnet. The result is the signature Creamback tone delivered with tighter bass, and a punchier more dynamic high end.
The 'H' magnet has the effect of thickening single-notes with additional focus, body and girth, causing them to "jump out" with an articulate, 3-dimensional vocal character. These qualities make the G12H-75 Creamback an outstanding choice for lead guitar work, and it sounds monstrous loaded in to a 4x12 cab.
