Back in the late 60s, the G12H was created by fixing an 'H' type (heavy) magnet to the body of a G12M guitar speaker. The result was a speaker with more power and a different tonal balance: firmer bass and a more pronounced top end. So Celestion added an 'H' magnet to the G12M-65 Creamback, create a guitar speaker that delivers the sonic signature of a G12H combined with Creamback levels of power handling.

The result is the G12H-75 Creamback. It delivers 75-watts of power handling with ease and has unmistakeable G12H tone, with a tighter low end than the G12M-65 Creamback and a punchier, more dynamic high end. The H magnet brings additional focus, body and girth to the Creamback tone. It thickens single notes, resulting in a highly articulate, vocal character. These additional characteristics mean that the G12H-75 Creamback offers exceptional performance when used for lead guitar and sounds massive loaded into a 4x12 cab!

With the massive ceramic magnet hanging off the back, I feared it might not fit inside my DSL20CR, but fit it did (though I had to remove the chassis to get it in there). \n\nWhile the stock Celestion Seventy-80 sounded OK, this G12H-75 blows it completely out of the water! Some would say it's overkill for a Vietnam-built Marshall DSL combo amp, but I don't care. This speaker elevates what was merely good to something approaching great.\n\nTighter, stronger bass and singing highs that don't ever sound harsh or ice-picky. What's there to think about?
