- The V-Type continues Celestion’s tradition of delivering rich, classic British guitar tone in innovative new ways.
- Combining decades of Guitarist experience with advanced research and development, the V-Type has been built using a carefully balanced ‘recipe’ of old and new design techniques.
- The Publisher of The ToneQuest Report: “WOW! These speakers are just incredibly good – as described on the Celestion web site and even better.…. It is just a beautiful sounding speaker in every respect… Our review will be very positive and compelling. Well done!”
- Richard Fortus, best known for his work as a member of Guns N’ Roses has spent time with the V-Type and is now an endorsee for the speaker.
- Using the classic Celestion pressed steel frame, ceramic magnet the V Type guitar speaker delivers 70-watt power handling and an output sensitivity (SPL) of 98dB.
- The V-Type produces an exciting, modern vintage electric guitar sound that’s described as “airy and open, while delivering a formidable low end.” It is a loudspeaker that provides authentic Celestion tone whatever your style and just makes you want to keep on playing.
- Clean sounds are true across the lows, mids and highs, with just enough upper-mid chime and HF sparkle to add clarity and definition.
- Crank it up for a sizzling overdrive and raw rock tones, with plenty of mid-band warmth to give body and substance to lead note playing.
- To achieve this, Celestion’s guitar speaker experts have carried out extensive work to refine the traditional manufacturing process.
- They applied advanced engineering know-how together with the application of modern materials, including innovations first used with the best-selling Creamback.
- This has enabled the exploration of new tonal possibilities without compromising power handling or sensitivity, and still remaining faithful to the sonic spirit of Celestion’s greatest guitar speakers.
- The result is something that offers a different ‘flavor’ compared to a G12M or G12H.
- The V-Type is a sweet-sounding speaker with a superbly balanced tonal signature that imparts a real vintage musicality; built with the modern player in mind.
- A cool retro look complements the authentic Celestion tonality, so no-one should be in any doubt of this remarkable speaker’s family history. The V-Type truly is a modern guitar speaker with a vintage pedigree.
