Great sounding Speaker!

Bought the Celestion V-Type to replace the stock 70/80 in myMarshall DSL40C, The 70/80 isnt that bad but can be a bit bright and thin sounding, I wanted a speaker that still had some presence but yet warm and tight and also has some of that Vintage 30 cut...and the V-Type does just that for me. This speaker sounds great right out of the box so if you need a speaker that's balanced in tone and great for a variety of styles check out the V-Type.

Awesomely surprise!

I have Marshall DSL-40C that came with creamback 65(good speaker) and I also have a creamback 75(very nice indeed) Anyways I just wanted to try the G12 V-type just to hear what the hype is about! Well,believe the hype cause its staying on my DSL-40. I got to try it live at a gig on band volume level and its every bit an awesome speaker for the price and less weight. It definitely lighten up my DSL-40 1x12 which is a plus. The biggest winner for me is what I'm hearing,which is a speaker that has a combination of G12T-75,V30,and some 25 Greenback! its kinda hard to explain but that's what I'm hearing. My set up is not difficult,all I have is a guitar alder body,maple neck and a bridge pick up Dimarzio PAF-PRO and cable to amp and that's it. Solo notes come out nice and slightly thick,my eq's are all 12'Oclock except for bass and resonance are at max,Rhythm chords come out clear and warm. Anyways it makes my Marshall sound very Balance. Talk to Scott Bennett at X1738 he'll take care of you.

Great Speaker and Great Customer Service

This is a great all around Celestion Speaker. Classic British Tone with higher power handling and reduced weight makes it a winner. I had a problem with my order and Sweetwater really took care of me. Thanks to Mark Chapman, my salesperson at Sweetwater.

Southern Style

I bought a Peavey Amp from Sweetwater and my friend made fun of my stock speaker. He convinced me to replace it so I shopped on sweetwater.com for hours comparing specs and reading reviews. I play mostly Southern Rock. So when I got this speaker I installed it and played a few bars of my favorite Skynyrd song and I was blown away! Crisp and warm. A Very real sounding speaker that puts it right there in your face. The tone is amazing. Whether I'm hard picking or gently strumming this Celestion does it all. Great buy. Great Company!
