Back in 1986 a new breed of hard rock player was on the rise. To meet the demands of the players and their increasingly ‘hot-rodded’ amplifiers, Celestion set out to develop a modern speaker, capable of handling much more power and overdrive. To achieve this, Celestion coupled their ‘H’ magnet (the closest in performance to Alnico) with a new cone and voice coil employing contemporary materials. 

Celestion's most revealing speaker, the Vintage 30 features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low-end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top-end. Used singly to reveal the complexities in hand-wired boutique amps, or in quartets for a wonderfully intricate vintage 3D crunch, the Vintage 30 sound has been captured on thousands of recordings from a diverse range of notable players including Slash, Steve Stevens and Peter Frampton.

Bought two of these bad boys, and put them in the top slant of my 1960A cab. Disconnected the lower two 75s, and BAM! 100% improvement in tone. Really brought the cabinet to life. Had I known they would have made this much difference I would have done this years ago. The stock 75s are flat and lifeless by comparison. A real eye opener.

I upgraded my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe with this speaker. I read all the reviews and everyone was right. This speaker gave my hot rod the powerful and warm sound that everyone said it would. I received it today via UPS and I could tell the difference right off. The change from the stock fender/eminence to the Celestion V30 was awesome.
