Celestion G12H 70th Anniversary 12" 16 Ohm Guitar Speaker
It's hard to escape the sound of the G12H, just listen to any Hendrix recording and chances are you'll be hearing a whole raft of them powering the guitar out of the mix.
With a heavier magnet than the G12M, this faithful recreation captures the unmistakable mojo of late 60s rock guitar tones. Used singly it exhibits a pleasing, strong low-end, but it's in a 4x12 configuration that it generates the great chugging 'thump' that the guitar heroes of the day were renowned for. With a densely complex and buttery mid-range and a finely detailed top-end, the G12H is excellent for cranking out huge, dark power chords, with smooth and rich bridge pickup tones and flutey neck pickup tones.
When played clean, the speaker remains clear and musical without ever sounding harsh. In overdrive, pick attack is vividly articulated with sustained notes trailing off into warm harmonic tones.
