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 15 watt Celestion Alnico Blue was the worlds first dedicated guitar loudspeaker and still to this day It is one of the best sounding guitar speakers ever made.

Originally designed back in the 1950s by Celestion to cater for a new explosion in amplifier manufacturing. Celestion modified their own the G12 radio speaker. The unique tonal character of the Celestion Blue, combined with the valve amps of the time, helped to define the electric guitar as we know it today.

The speaker place in History was sealed when Vox used the Blue in the AC15 and AC30 amplifiers. The early silver Marshall Alnico speakers were also the Alnico Blue just painted silver and with no bell cover.

The Blue has a bright, lively character with a carefully controlled bottom end and shimmering highs which no other speaker matches to this day. A bank of these speakers also sound huge, listen to Queen live at Wembley and Brain Mays guitar sound.

This speaker is often copied but never equalled and still proudly made in England.
