Celestion G12 Century Vintage
- The century has a cutting sound: bass are not huge but very defined, mids scooped and good treble frequencies.
- until now i had two V30 in my 2x12 mésa vertical rectifier, i like the warm tone they provide, but i wanted more bite for my heavy distorsion patchs so i swaped one of the V30 for a century vintage. The century vintage sounds not as huge as the V30, but it has more clarity and definition.
- I think that a 100% century vintage cab would best match for agressive métal, with heavy gauge strings and heavylly detuned guitars.
- and last, the century vintage weights three times less than a V30.

Celestion G12 Century Vintage
I had already Century Vintage and I really wanted to try THE CENTURY. I eventually found a nine remaining in stock as Celestion has stopped production (for the moment which was the same for years for the G12 Rola65 again in the range). Anyway, it's a great HP, ultra light, which is not insignificant when you carry the amps ..
peculiarities: the opposite of the upper midrange hump of the Vintage 30 and Vintage Century, the Century is an HP hot, with a very dynamic medium low, and above all a remarkable definition. What a nice surprise!
if you find any, I wish you, one for jazz, blues or warm, or if you like hard rock hot chestnuts .. it can also be associated with his brother the Century Vintage, a vintage 30, a Vintage V12-60, or a Classic Lead 80 ... and then, oh! wonder, it is wide, it's deep, burst up, it is the great outdoors ... Too bad the only Celestion longer produced (for now)

For 1 year 1 / 2
This HP is very light; 1Kg700 therefore great for who lugs around his gear, apart, repeated, concerts, etc ... !
against a G12T75 3Kg5 pr, pr 4K7 and a V30, you get the picture in 2 * 12 4 * 12 or ...?
its side, it sounds very clean, it recalls the sonic identity of G12T75 much-maligned, but clean
that is, the highs are biting but not garish, low net and not drooling, mediums not too pronounced, unlike the V30.
that means, it is straight, very transparent, not comparable with most HP mediums that are immediately more "hot" or "vintage"
saturated in it sounds great with any amp ...
it feels a Century Vintage HP ideal for styles quite varied but I think it will be most at ease in a register rock, hard rock or metal, the type compresssion, marshall plexi ... c very high gain in net ausis (tested with a head Brunetti) even if it is has any style I play blues, reggae, etc ... concerts and recordings are very clean
... and oddly, with my old fender siverface, it gives a side that veers more towards the Vox ...
I tried G12T75, are G12-65, an eminence V12, V30 and, as lots of other combos on various ...
the HP celestion have a specific grain is the sound of Rock ...
I will not repeat the HP because it does not match the sound I search

Celestion G12 Century Vintage
I use it for 5 months and I am satisfied 200%.
On the one hand, it is super light thanks to its magnet Néodium. Nice when
4 are in the same cabinet (like the roadies).

Moreover, its level and this is the most important, it is just fantastic.
The magnet Néodium gives a lot of potatoes. Transients are superb. In terms of its response, it is much cleaner and much less aggressive than G12T75 (too loud). I compare this to HP Eminence speaker in a VHT, and again there's no picture, Century Vintage is far ahead.

In his clear, it highlights the lower harmonics of the guitar with superb precision and transcribed every detail, every nuance of the game and in saturation, it is wonderful. The sound is huge, very wide, very precise while remaining very powerful. With my head Hughes & Kettner Warp X, and sheltered in my Marshall cabinet, the sound is simply gorgeous, and mostly metal.
