Great Fender Combo Upgrade

I became frustrated not being able to get low volume crunch out of my Blues Junior III and my ES-335. Asked Sweetwater Engineer to help me sort through about six options that I was seriously considering of new amps, cabs, attenuators, replacement speakers, …. Mark suggested this Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 12" 65-Watt Replacement 8 Ohm Speaker. I couldn’t be happier. This speaker is much more efficient then my original Eminence Lightning Bolt speaker. Immediately I had to turn down my Volume and Master controls on the Blues Jr. amp, when I first tested it out with my old favorite amp settings. The Creamback made my cleans sound crystal clear and chimey. Now my pedals (OCD, PlimSoul, RC Booster-V2, …) give me the great crunch I was hoping for, even at low volumes. Where with the old Eminence speaker, it only gave me fuzzy mushy noise with my pedals, which is what started this whole replacement quest. I couldn’t be happier now with my Blues Junior and the ceramic Celestion Creamback 65w replacement speaker. It took me 15 minutes to change it out, with the help of a youtuber. My quest is all about the tone, and this Celestion Creamback does it for me. Thanks Mark, and thanks Celestion. Only wish Fender would have put this speaker in the Blues Junior originally. Great guitar speaker!

So nice.

This is better than expected. Everybody is loving the clearity. Experiencing increased higher mids. Seems more defined than my V30. Used with low to moderate gain in Fender amp with 6l6s, ax7s. Alnico 2 and 3 humbuckers in Gibson Memphis. Would seriously recommend.

Classic Tone!

I recently purchased this speaker for my 76 Deluxe Reverb. For the last 8 years I have been using an Eminence Governor in my DR to boost the mids and tame the treble response. I think the Governor is an excellent speaker (similar to a V30) but lately I have been wanting more personality from my vintage amp. I am very pleased with the Creamback and it has definitely added some character to my DR. The highs are present but are not shrill or overbearing, the mids are warm and smooth and the low end is nice and full without being flubby or boomy. This speaker is made in the UK, and the build quality and tone are excellent. In addition, the 8 mounting holes (versus 4 in other models) makes mounting in a Fender amp much easier. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for the classic Greenback sound and character.

Celestion G12M-65 Creamback

I purchased this based on the fact that this was meant to be a higher power handling version of the Greenback. What makes this great is how it sounds in a 1-12 open back Mesa cabinet. There is a little more sparkle, less Ice-pick, and a nice boost to the useful low end. Sounds similar to my M-25 Heritage Greenbacks in my TA-30. Sounds great with my Mini Rec, and Mark 5. I've also replaced one Vintage 30 (16 ohm) in my 2-12 Vertical Rec Slant cabinet, and so far, love it too!
