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 Heritage Series G12H 75 Hz Lead Cone is the faithful UK made recreation of one Celestions most sought after vintage speakers the 30 watt pre Rola" G12H. The Lead Cone G12H as it has become known was optimised for Lead guitar and has a different tonal balance when compared with the G12H Low resonance 55Hz version.

The Original 75 Hz G12H 30 watt speaker was used by Marshall in their 4 x 12 cabs and was favoured by many Lead guitarists for its warmth and single note projection. The Lead Cone also has a more transparent upper mids and sparkling highs which is emphasised by the cone thinner composition.

So why is this speaker so special and why do other speakers not match its tonal character?

At Marshall's request Celestion developed this speaker for Marshall and it had be tonally the same as the vintage original. To make it tonally the same every detail of the original speaker had to be meticulously reproduced.

The Original materials were used for the coil former and dust cap. The voice coil winding lengths and voice coil materials with exact dimensions and specification reproduced. The cones edge treatment and adhesives were exactly replicated and finally two of the most vital sound secrets. The cones material properties changes tonally over time so the cones were manufactured to replicate this.
The originals magnetic flux and the demagnetisation also changes over time and Celestion replicated this. The cones thinner pulp composition was also reproduced to give the Heritage G12H 75Hz Lead cone the same character as the original vintage items.

The result was a perfectly aged and sounding replica of this iconic speaker and made, like the originals in England.

Celestion have built these speakers to recreate the classic sound of the Original 75 Hz G12H for the guitarist who want that authentic British Rock Sound. This speaker has the punch and warm projection of a Vintage G12H 75Hz. If you own a Marshall, Orange or Vox then this will give you're the sound vintage character that your stock speaker has always lacked.
