I use the HP in a cab in ENGL 4 * 12 months since QLQ. HP are good, rather typical metal as well dug in the medium. These are the HP ELRS "general" celestion home and are presented as HP cut for jazz (it's crazy the number of gear designed for jazz to be used primarily in metal and others: for example, the combo JC 120 Rolland or the scratches EMG 60 pickups or Seymour SH2.
Anyway it's a HP relativemnt Polyval although the sound is very modern vintage exit effects and how old marshall greenback in the ass! (Anyway it is better to take the stuff of time). However, everything goes smoothly (from clean to heavy distos through the blues) because I play anyway I would stop everything and not a style (far) g and was pleasantly surprised by the HP, even if his favorite is the big sound (the palm muted emerge easily, I was QLQ little confused at first because I used to support much like a bear to make them stand out, here it goes without forcing). But I think the box is also ENGL bcp
It's not super high end but in the cab ENGL it works fairly well sacred to the sound diffusion (equal power even faster than the other covers I scratch my group also in 4 * 12). I think of names like the vintage 30 are much better but that's normal they are much more expensive. In fact I plan to replace them because they eventually upgrade my config and I buy a Powerball (I want to give him what he is best: it's worth it (lol)
I put 8 because I think the quality / price, especially for those who take the ENGL cab: it leaves the possibility of a (large) good quality sound for the price (or cheaper) than a cab marshall standart.
Hope this helped contribute to the knowledge of my faith HP little known (I have quite a hassle to find reviews: Gillou thank you again!)
PS: Do not be surprised if such notice make duplicates with raised cab but I wanted to light the lanterns on this HP for the reason that I have outlined

Mounted in combination with Greenback and G10L35, alone or in return.
I do not quite agree with what I have read about "the media dug. Hollow if it is in the upper midrange, but not at the bottom. They are rather "crooked" in the medium compared with a G12M and less deep bass than Vintage 30.
It remains that this is a very good compromise especially associated with a G12M or Classic Lead by example ....
In fact, it is the little brother of the Vintage 30, Celestion designed by the same spirit, but instead of 96db 100db to Vintage 30. Making it an ideal partner in combination with Celestion G12T75 (the idea of Bogner) or G12M. Or, if you have any modern effects with the medium tending to dig for sounds too Japanese, it would be the ideal mate to restore color, more balanced final
To my taste, in a 4x12 with the V12-60, a little too "colorful mellow", but with the combination it takes its place. For example, the mixture with G12HOT100 with hybrid heads, is the right balance, even better in most porn star with G12T75 (Bogner mind) ... You see, it is surprising
