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-150 Redback has been created for players who are looking for extreme power handling but refuse to compromise on great tone.

At 150-watts RMS the Redback uses a supersized 2-inch voice coil and features the heaviest G12 magnet. This Important speaker will allow the use of just one 12 inch speaker in that 100 watt combo.

This should be good news for all those MK1 to MK4 Mesa Boogie owners. The Red Back retains the character of the Classic G12H Celestion but delivers high power handling without losing the balance, responsiveness and superb playability of the original G12H.

The result is a guitar speaker that sounds 100% Celestion in character, yet can handle the anything that a 100-watt head can deliver.
