Launched in 2013, the Celestion V-Type combines the best of modern and vintage tones and was built with the contemporary guitar player firmly in mind. With open and airy highs, warm, well rounded mids, and plenty of power and punch at the low end, this is a speaker that appeals to lead and rhythm players alike.
Now available for download in digital form, the 4×12 closed back cabinet version of the V-Type IR has been recorded by world class sound engineers using three of the best-known microphones (the Sennheiser MD421, the Royer R-121, and the Shure SM57). Each mic has been recorded in 6 different placements to give a range of tone variations to choose from (Balanced, Bright, Fat, Thin, Dark and Dark 2).
In addition, the V-Type has also been captured by a Neumann TLM 107 room mic in 3 different options (Left, Right and Stereo). The set also includes 4 mic mixes (R-121+MD421, R-121+SM57, MD421+SM57, and all three together R-121+MD421+SM57) each in a choice of Low or High Gain, making 8 mix files in all.
All files are .WAV format and can be used in most well-known DAWs, amp modellers and plugins.
