In Stock!

A Beefed-up G12H!

NOTE: Speakers are non-returnable.

Celestion speakers are a staple of modern music. Starting in the 1960s, they helped define generations of guitar tone. The Celestion Heritage G12H-75 12" guitar speaker delivers classic British tone with more punch, firmer bass, and a sweeter top end. Featuring a heavier magnet than the original G12M Greenback, Celestion's Heritage G12H redefined the sound of modern rock guitar from the 1960s on. This 70Hz-resonance Heritage speaker model perfectly re-creates the sound of an original low-resonance G12H, giving you thick, syrupy tones with extra-deep bottom-end growl. Put a classic British-sounding speaker in your guitar amplifier, with the Celestion Heritage G12H-75 12" guitar speaker!

75w Creamback

I have a pair in a 2x12 wired for a 16ohm load to use with my Marshall circuits. These speakers required very little break in time as they sounded good out the box and now sound even better as they have warmed up a bit. Much more rounded than a V30. They retain a nice chime even with heavy gain settings and no flubby bass at high volumes. I'm purchasing two more to mix with V30's in a 4x12 as they did work well together in my 2x12.

I've been playing 37 years... And know "THE" sound... Right now I put these in a 65 RI Fender Twin with the David Hicks Fender Mender Module (friggin amazing cannot buy these ANYMORE). running the TC Nova system And EMG's in my Les Paul and SG StandardAmazing compared to stock Jensons. Killer distortion single note clarity ..cleans perfect...can't wait to here these live and recorded!!!!


What a fantastic sounding speaker this is. Just has that great old tone I think of when I think Celestion. Cream, Allman Brothers, Zeppelin. Yeah that tone. Very balanced tone. No weird peaks or valleys. Has highs but they are sweet, not brittle. Plus it handles 75 watts so it is perfect for most 1X12 combos. I can't even imagine anybody who likes Celestion speakers wouldn't LOVE this speaker.

Sounds Fantastic

I put this in a Line 6 Spider IV 75, and it's a huge, YUGE (ha ha) improvement over the stock Celestion. Way more note definition on the overdrive sounds; I found I had to turn the gain/drive up about 10% on some of the overdrive sounds because of the fact that it sounded so much cleaner; and also turned down some of the bass and treble settings as the speaker performs better than the original in those frequencies. Again, the clarity of the notes in chords when using overdrive, and with really saturated distortion tones is vastly improved. It's a pretty big investment for a $300-400 amp, but with this speaker, it will sound like a $1000 amp. I have an Orange Rockerverb to compare it to, and though it's not as good, it definitely holds it's own against it now. I should add that I built my sounds from the ground up, and the overdrive sound I use is actually one of the clean (green) amp sounds with their classic distortion pedal fx. I also use the metal red setting for high gain distortion.Anyway, this speaker is a great match for the Line 6 Spider 75.

Celestion G12H-75 Creamback. Freakin' Killer !!!

I've been playing a very long time and have owned a multitude of amps and speaker cabinets. Altec, Electro-Voice, Jensen, JBL Celestion, Eminence and Weber speakers have all had both good and less than good product offerings. The new Celestion G12H-75 Creamback is an especially good speaker and, in my opinion, for it's build purpose of bringing G12H tone to those needing a speaker that can handle a much higher wattage, it's excellent at delivering what the buyer is hoping for. My personal favorite speakers, to show where my head's at are, in no particular order, Eminence 12" Wizards and 10" Ragin' Cajuns, EVM 12L's, JBL D120 and Celestion's Heritage G12H 55Hz and 75Hz, G12H Anniversary, Vintage 30, Alnico Blue, Alnico Gold and 10" G10 Alnico Gold. My reason for purchasing the new G12H-75? I own a wonderful hand wired 60 watt Fender Concert 1 X 12" combo built in 1984. I wanted to pair it up for some stereo applications with my Tony Bruno Underground 30, (approx 38 watts). The Bruno is a 2 X 12" and, in my case, sports an Alnico Blue paired with a G12H Anniversary. After ready the specs on the G12H-75 I thought I'd give it a shot. It actually worked out much better than I'd hoped. The higher wattage capability causes the G12H-75 to be a bit darker than the G12H Anniversary and has a fuller, somewhat thicker sound quality to it. It actually compares quite favorably to the combined tonality of the G12H Anniversary and Alnico Blue used together and this is exactly what I was going for. I needed a speaker that could, by itself, stand up to the 60 watt RMS rated Fender Concert. Considering the limited number of speakers up to the task I don't think I could have made a better choice. A little icing for the cake ..... the Celestion G12H-75 has 8 mounting holes that matched up perfectly with the 8 mounting screws in the Fender Concert cab. The label on the speaker magnet is cocked a bit to the right but no one's going to know. Many speakers today sport 4 instead of 8 holes and it's a pain to either cut off four mounting screws or drill four mounting holes in a brand new speaker, (returns can be a bitch). I've now had time to use the G12H-75 both for it's original purpose as well as in the Fender Concert as a stand alone amp and truly couldn't be more impressed. The G12H-75 is not vintage Fender voiced but the 1984 Fender Concert had traded it's original "'60s Concert" second channel for a higher gain channel to fit the times and, for those times in the mid 1980's, the Celestion G12H-75 is absolutely perfect. Had it been around in 1984 I would have to believe it would have been Fenders speaker of choice for the Fender Concert 1 X 12" combo.
