Linn Sondek's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Pretty bad."

Celestion Vintage 30
The Celestion Vintage 30 HP is a high reputation team a fairly substantial number of speakers manufacturer. And one can legitimately ask this almost existential question: "But, mashed, why?".
It should however be careful when reading the name of HP, "Vintage 30" ... Not only because it does not sound vintage, but it is not more than 30 years it is 30W. So, once again, "Why Why so much hate and lies in the world of harmony and serenity Yes, why?".
Well, I do not know damn thing!
Who wants to severe drooling endlessly? Who wants projected even at low volume mediums? Who wants screaming highs and without definition? Anyway, who wants a bad sound? This one has only one choice: the V30.
Made in China but sold at UK, I can not find anything positive to say about this Celestion. Maybe he needs a break of several years? Perhaps it should always be associated with a very different HP?

Celestion Vintage 30
How long have you been using?
I used 8 years on very good tube amp (Soldano SLO and Steavens Poundcake).

Did you try many other models before buying it?
No, it was after acquisition that I had the opportunity to compare.

What is so special that you like most and least?
What I like most: uh .... ben nothing (after comparison with other hp)
What I like least: the name is completely misleading Vintage, it sounds too modern for that, more high-volume sound is aggressive, loud, nasal, too straight and mids are not creamy or singing, they sound too "metal" hard ".
The Vintage 30 cab occupy most of the same high quality is really wonder how this is possible ...
Makes you wonder if Celestion almost does not pay the builders for installing in V30.

How do you rate the quality / price?
Cher for performance.

With experience, you do again this choice?
Certainly not!
I think his hp are ideal for youngsters playing metal today, for everything else they are not really recommended.
Basically they seemed not too bad the V30, but hey I never had the opportunity to compare with other hp.
Once the opportunity to be able to compare to other models hp, then I really realized how much they were "lame."
For me, that price is one of the "worst" hp available on the market.
I joined the opinion of Qillax we read everywhere that hp are great and wonderful and blah blah blah .... especially do not get trapped!

Celestion Vintage 30
it is a HP one hears everywhere that it is wonderful, wonderful ... we see that it is used by Slash then we say that the master has good taste and that is wrong and not taking it away .... it is not at all the vintage sound, warm with a nice round fat medium is just the opposite is brilliant, super straight, precise limit hi-fi I'm exaggerating a bit on the form but the substance remains the Similarly, on the Mesa for the modern is excellent after a Fender or Marshall is yuck ... suddenly I caught a Celestion Alnico Blue for my Fender and Marshall on a small Celestion Greenback Heritage, where it kills more than his mama ... dirty bluesy sounds a real wonder compared to V30, so after all depends on what you search ... for me it is not the ultimate in HP Celestion, they would have had to baptize the Modern Vintage 30 instead of 30, at least it would avoid confusion
