The Celestion Gold was originally developed as a higher power alnico speaker and is thought of as a “well played-in” version of its older brother the Celestion Blue. Exhibiting many of the same tonal characteristics as can be heard in the original Blue, the Gold has a less prominent high end which reveals a more complex upper mid-range.
Expressive and dynamic, the Celestion Alnico Gold, a 50 Watt G12 speaker, 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.
Each cabinet recording is available as an Impulse Response (IR), authentic digital speaker tone in the industry standard format for full compatibility with your DAW, profiler or amp modeller. The digital download collection and individual cabinet files are also available as a Dynamic Speaker Response (DSR), the “next generation IR” that works together with Celestion’s SpeakerMix Pro plug-in to deliver tone that’s even more responsive to playing style: adding more “feel” to your sound for even greater realism.
