I never really understood why people were so into those low power Celestion speakers.


I always liked the way most of my amps sounded and i just did not see why people wanted to use low power 35watt 12" speakers.


If the amp sounds good why would you want the trash sound of the speaker breaking up when it gets loud?


I always went the other way using high power heavy duty speakers and just let the hair come from the preamp stage wich sounded the same at low and high volumes.


I can see you maybe wanting the cheap trash sound when older older amps that never had enough gain to create all the hair these newer amps have but people still are hung up on those junk speakers.

Most people back in my day used them to get a Hendrix/Clapton/Leslie West kind of sound (or whatever other guitarist they were trying to emulate). Don't know about guitarists nowadays? I don't hang out with anyone anymore.


Edit: Plus, as I recall, they were cheap! LOL
