Expressive and dynamic, the Celestion Alnico Gold yields unprecedented control along with the muscle needed to deliver a huge rhythmic voicing. All the qualities of an alnico speaker are still there, including a warm bass, chiming treble and a “laid-back” attack. Push a little harder and the Alnico Gold yields rich, thick overtones, harder still and you’re rewarded with a delightfully aggressive snarl with just enough natural compression to keep things sweet.
The Celestion Alnico Gold is available as a Dynamic Speaker Response (DSR) library 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.
