NAMM WINTER SESSION, ANAHEIM, CA, January 18, 2007 — Celestion, the world’s premier designer and manufacturer of guitar loudspeakers, announces the introduction of the new G10 Greenback, delivering rich, classic Celestion tone in a 10” format.
Celestion recognized an opportunity for a 10-inch guitar loudspeaker capable of delivering classic rock tone. The goal was to develop a driver that is capable of delivering tone like the distinctive “sports-car growl” that is the trademark of the original 12-inch G12M “Greenback”, but in a 10-inch format.
To achieve this Celestion design engineers performed extensive listening tests with 10-inch Celestion ceramic drivers from the late 60s onwards, as well as drawing on the experience gained from the development of the original G12M Greenback.
The result is the 25-Watt G10 Greenback, which remains faithful to the sonic spirit of the Greenback family: the same warm-bodied character, but with a slightly brighter sound as produced by a 10″ driver - punchy and articulate.
At the same time, Celestion have introduced a new eight hole chassis that’s more versatile for upgrades. The new G10 also features a green can, which should leave no-one in any doubt of this remarkable speaker’s family history. The G10 Greenback truly is a contemporary speaker with a vintage pedigree.
Thanks to significant and sustained investment in research and development, Celestion will be launching new products throughout this year. Winter NAMM 2007 sees the first phase of this initiative with no fewer than 24 new products being introduced, including the G10 Greenback.
