Celestion speakers started in Hampton Wick England in 1924. Celestion Radio Company and Celestion Limited were formed in 1927, and two years later the company moved across the Thames to Kingston. The company grew rapidly, but was hit by the depression.

Wartime restrictions forced Celestion and the nearby British Rola Company to produce loudspeakers to the same specification; British Rola bought Celestion in 1947 and formed Rola Celestion and moved production to Thames Ditton in 1949. Rola Celestion was bought by Truvox - a manufacturer of public address systems in 1949.

Celestion developed the first dedicated guitar speaker T0530, what came to be known as the Alnico Blue and with its marriage with the Vox AC15 and AC30 a legend was born. In 1968 the company started production in Ipswich, moving all production there by 1975. Celestion developed the speakers that then powered the Blues and Rock Revolution in the late 1960's and early 1970's with speakers such as the G12M Green Back and G12H. Over recent years Celestion have remade some of their finest and most sort after speakers.

Watford Valves have supplied speakers to the music industry for over 25 years and with the benefit of hindsight can honestly say that for guitar or bass Celestion's are the best speaker's money can buy.
The Celestion G12H 55 Hz Low resonance speaker is an exact recreation of the 30 watt low resonance "pre Rola" G12H.

Original G12H 55 Hz Celestions are very sought after for their thick sustain and growling bottom end punch. These were made at the request of Marshall to have a deeper response and were used in the Bass 4 x 12 cabinets to partner the Marshall Superbass head.

The unique tonal characteristics of the speaker and the overdriven characteristic made this the Guitarist choice. These were used by the cream of rock guitar as they were used by Hendrix, Blackmore, Kossoff and Page and opened the classic era of British rock music.

The unmistakably creamy tones of the G12H have made this a real icon. It is certainly one of the best ceramic speakers made. They are made, like the originals in England.
