SKU: IR00016 Category:


The Celestion Ruby speaker impulse response in a 1×12 closed back cabinet configuration was purpose built to create rich, beautiful vintage tones with an instantly familiar alnico vibe. The Ruby oozes a rich, musical warmth with mellow highs and a smooth, sophisticated midrange.

The Celestion Ruby 1×12 closed back speaker IR was painstakingly recorded by Celestion’s expert sound engineers in a world-class room using three of the industry’s best microphones – a Shure SM57, a Royer ribbon mic and a Sennheiser MD421.

These three microphones were each recorded in six different positions and named as Balanced, Bright, Fat, Thin, Dark and Dark 2. A Neumann TLM107 room microphone was used to provide extra mic mixes to ensure the user has use of a huge range of tonal options.

This Celestion Ruby 1×12 open back speaker impulse response is downloaded in .WAV format for use with DAWs, IR plugins and amp modelling software.
