30 years playing guitar, sometimes for money, always Loud.
The dude's speakers abide.First one I bought I put in an old Laney bottom 4x12 cab, next to a 'Made in England' greenback and mic'd up using an AKG 414 thru a Vintech x73i, amp is a Metro SLP and running it at 90 volts, dimed. lots of old tubes too.
I started out on the lookout for that annoying high end I get from some other Celestions, nope, not there. Next, what about the tone, warmth, drive? Yep, slide over the mic to do an A/B to the uk greenback. I like my EVH better actually. Relief, LOL not even broken in yet!
These are filling up my 4x12. I like the quality very much, if anything they actually do give me more of what I like in a greenback, (i read that somewhere, hmmm.) It seems there's a bit more grit, in a good way, mods are pronounced as you would expect and the bottom is tight. Breakup is excellent, but as I roll off my gtr volume the way they'll clean up is beautiful, all the way up to a roar! Highs are sweet and chimy, for a greenback, not dulled like alnico but sweet like better pre tubes. As a huge fan of EVH's sound of the '78 - '81 era i know Edward's sound. And yeah, they do say Made in U.K., I was wondering about that... Thanks to EVH, Celestion and Fender for making this one happen.
Since my first impression I added more and if anything the tone is settling in and sounds as good or better now. You do not want me to turn down...! The dude's speakers do indeed abide.
