Celestion G10 Gold Impulse Response – The Ultimate 10” Speaker IR


We’re excited to announce the latest addition to our speaker impulse response range – the Celestion G10 Gold speaker IR.

Following the fantastic feedback we received for the 12” Celestion Gold, the G10 Gold was born from the clear demand for a speaker that combines the Alnico mellowness of the original Celestion Blue with the speed, articulation and responsiveness of a 10” driver.

Celestion G10 Gold Tone

Often viewed as the ultimate 10” guitar speaker, the Celestion G10 Gold perfectly blends that unmistakably British, warm Alnico tone with a full, rich low-end, creamy mid-range and a vintage, chiming top-end.

This speaker is springy, revealing and highly expressive and adds a classy sheen to any amp on its own in a 1×10 cab or in pairs in a 2×10 configuration. Or try the G10 Gold loaded into a 4×10 setup for more warmth, depth and shimmer – but with less of the deep boominess that come with the 4×12 cabinets.

You’ll love the responsive and articulate tone you get from the pressed steel chassis and Alnico magnet.

G10 Gold Impulse Response

This unique speaker has now – for the first time for any 10-inch guitar speaker – been faithfully captured in digital form by Celestion’s expert sound engineers as an impulse response.

Using our highly-guarded sampling techniques, it was painstakingly recorded using three classic, studio-quality microphones – the Shure SM57, A Sennheiser MD421 and a Royer R-121 ribbon mic. These microphones have been recorded from six unique positions around the speaker, titled as Thin, Fat, Balanced, Bright, Dark and Dark 2. A rear mic position was also used for recording the open back cabinets.

These positions are all fully adjustable by the user when using the speaker impulse response files within your DAW, IR plugin or amp modeller. In addition to the three studio mics included with this IR pack, a Neumann TLM107 room mic was also used to offer the user to a huge range of choices and spectrum of tone.

The Celestion G10 Gold speaker IR is available in five different cabinet configurations:

  • 1×12 (open back)
  • 1×12 (closed back)
  • 2×12 (open back)
  • 2×12 (closed back)
  • 4×12 (closed back)

These can either be downloaded individually or as a full collection with a discount of up to 50%. As with all our other best-selling ranges of IRs, the G10 Gold IR is downloaded in .WAV format to ensure full compatibility with the majority of amp modelling software.

This impulse response is a perfect digital representation of the now legendary 10” Gold guitar speaker and makes a fantastically responsive and articulate alternative to other Alnico-backed speakers, such as the Celestion 12” Gold, Blue or Cream.
