Celestion has debuted its Heritage Series guitar speakers, a perfect recreation of the classic G12M and G12H speakers popular during the 1960s British Invasion.
Adhering precisely to the initial design notes, specifications, materials and construction techniques of the original speakers that were rediscovered during a recent Celestion factory move, the new Heritage Series is hand-built in England and pays strict attention to detail right down to the voice coil former material, glue formulations and edge-treatment. In addition, close consideration has been paid to matching the coil and magnetic flux specifications of the 1960s models, while particulars include solder-only tag panels and original “Thames Ditton” labels.
The Heritage Series G12M, a replica of the original “Greenback,” is a 12-inch speaker with a pressed-steel chassis that features a 20-Watt power rating, 1.75-inch round copper voice coil, 8 or 15 Ohm nominal impedance, 96 dB sensitivity, and frequency response of 75-5000 Hz.
Rated at 30 Watts, the 12-inch Heritage Series G12H has all the same features as the original low resonance G12H model speaker, including a pressed-steel chassis, 1.75-inch round copper voice coil, ceramic 50 oz. magnet, impedance rating of 8 or 16 Ohm, and low 55 Hz resonance point, along with a 55-5,000 Hz frequency range.
