Information:

From the 60s to the present day, from the British Invasion to modern pickers like Brad Paisley - the unmistakable, musical sound of the Alnico magnet guitar speaker, as pioneered by Celestion, continues to shape popular music. Back in the late 50s, our friends at Vox and Marshall identified the need for a dedicated guitar speaker to handle the increasingly loud and raucous performances. In response, Celestion designed the G12 T530 – the now famous ‘Blue’. The rigid construction and Alnico magnets made them ideal for a new generation of electric guitarists, experimenting increasingly with volume and overdrive.


 

This classic guitar speaker actually started life as a radio speaker that was modified specifically for use in electric guitar amplifiers. In its original incarnation as the G12 T530 it appeared in several colour variations, but it was the Blue version, fitted as standard into Vox AC30 amps, that secured its place in guitar tone history. The Blue found favour with notable guitarists like Brian May, due to its glorious dampened attack, warm lows, mellow upper-mids and brilliant bell-like top-end. When coupled with a suitable amplifier it evokes rich definition and develops beautiful musical compression when pushed. According to tone enthusiasts worldwide, the Blue is the benchmark for guitar speaker perfection.
