Celestion G12M-50 Hempback DSRs & IRs – A Sweet & Smoky Sound

Combining a hemp cone specifically chosen for its tonal character and a medium-weight ceramic magnet, the brand-new G12M-50 Hempback takes Celestion tone in an exciting new direction.

For the first time ever, we released the impulse responses and Dynamic Speaker Responses for a Celestion speaker that wasn’t available instore yet, giving you exclusive early access to experience the tones of the Celestion Hempback!

The G12M-50 Hempback is available as both impulse responses and Dynamic Speaker Responses, the DSRs for use exclusively with our SpeakerMix Pro plugin.

For users of Two notes’ Torpedo hardware and software, the Hempback is now available as DynIR cabinets.

So, let’s dive into the tone of the Hempback and consider where this speaker response might be the perfect fit for your Celestion speaker IR or DSR collection.


G12M-50 Hempback Tone

Well-defined and able to deliver plenty of heft, the new Celestion Hempback delivers a finely balanced low end, plenty of midrange character and smooth, singing highs.

Targeted for use in American voiced amps, the Hempback matches well with combos such as a Deluxe Reverb® or Blues Jr,® for example. That’s no less true of the digital response version, which is primed to deliver true American-flavoured tone and cleans that are second to none. It’s a sweet and smoky sound that’s musical and responsive: try the Hempback speaker responses and let your hemp tone shine through.

The G12M-50 Hempback is available as both impulse response and Dynamic Speaker Response libraries with five different cabinet types:

1×12 (open back)

1×12 (closed back)

2×12 (open back)

2×12 (closed back)

4×12 (closed back)

Each cabinet’s response has been captured using three of the best-loved recording microphones, used in professional studios around the world. Each microphone is placed in six different locations, which gives a total of 18 core responses per cabinet.
