Celestion, the world's leading guitar speaker manufacturer, has announced the launch of its new Silver Series--the company's first low-cost, true-vintage-quality guitar speakers.
Comprised of four models, the Silver Series brings the classic performance that established Celestion's place in music history to a price point that is well within the reach of every guitar player.
The high-power-handling V12-80 is suitable for all playing styles. Providing a clean, open midrange and "glassy" overall sound, the V12-80 emulates the desirable guitar speaker tones produced by the classic amps of the 1960s.
The V12-60 is more "laid back and bluely" than the V12-80. It projects very well and features a smooth, sweet, warm sound that is just as suitable for blues and jazz as it is for rock and modern playing styles. The compact, powerful V10-60 produces a huge projection and tone, with a glassy, defined sound. Extremely versatile and loud, the V10-60 exhibits superb clarity and definition. The final model in the Silver Series is the smooth-sounding V10-40. This versatile speaker has a dynamic, responsive top end. And, like its siblings, it features the distinctive vintage sound that Celestion has come to be known for.
Suggested retail pricing on the line is as follows:
V12-80 - $109; V12-60 - $99; V10-60 - $79; V10-40 - $69
