Celestion Seventy 80 Impulse Response – Detailed & Crisply Defined Tone

The Celestion Seventy 80 speaker was conceived in the late 1990s as the G12P-80 and has gone on to become one of the most popular and widespread guitar speakers we’ve ever produced, having found its way into a huge number of amps and cabs around the world!

Delivering a modern, gutsy British sound, the Seventy 80 packs a serious punch, taking the sound of  a ceramic magnet guitar speaker to new levels.

Punchy & Dynamic Tone

With a detailed and crisply defined tone, the Seventy 80 has a tightly controlled, hefty low-end with a punchy, aggressive and dynamic upper mid-range. Its top-end response is clear and glassy for enhanced treble and a full-range feel without compromising its undeniable Celestion character. The Seventy 80’s low notes are tight, partnered with an upper register that has definition, and clarity, making it an excellent choice for searing lead lines or sparkling rhythm work: for all the guitar parts that you need to really cut through the mix. .

5 Different Cabinet Configurations

Our expert sound engineers have now meticulously captured the dynamic tones of the Celestion Seventy 80 guitar speaker in digital form as a range of speaker impulse responses – available for download in a variety of classic cabinet configurations to provide the user with the entire range of tone that the Seventy 80 has to offer:

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

These speaker impulse responses were recorded in a world-class room using three pro-quality microphones: a Shure SM57, a Royer ribbon mic and a Sennheiser MD421. Each of these three microphones were recorded in six fully-adjustable positions (including a rear mic for the open back cabinets) and termed within the Impulse Response files as:

  • Balanced
  • Bright
  • Fat
  • Thin
  • Dark
  • Dark 2

As well as the the three professional mics already used to create this Celestion Seventy 80 impulse response collection, an additional Neumann TLM107 room mic was used to record extra mic mixes to provide the user with the widest range of tonal options possible.

These Seventy 80 cabinet configurations can either be downloaded individually or as a full collection with a discount of up to 50%.

Like the rest of our best-selling ranges of speaker impulse responses, the Seventy 80 is downloaded in .WAV format to ensure full compatibility with the majority of amp modelling software and plugins.
