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 the smaller 10-inch format. This loudspeaker is available now.
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 30-Watt G10 Greenback, which remains faithful to the sonic spirit of the Greenback family. The weighty low-end balance of a 12-inch driver with a richly complex and creamy mid-range and vintage smooth top-end - this is the unit to add class to small combos, provide the 4 x 12" sound only on a smaller scale,and is even capable of delivering the majestic sonic barrage of the near-mythical 8 x 10".
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.
