The G12-35XC was introduced in 2014 to commemorate Celestion’s 90th birthday; as a special edition production-run, limited to just 3000.
Featuring a 42 oz magnet – the only Celestion guitar speaker to do so – the 35XC was built combining tried-and-tested materials and construction methods together with new design techniques. The intention was to create a speaker that had truly vintage sonic characteristics; with the poise, fluidity and musicality reminiscent of the legendary Pulsonic-coned speakers from the 1960s. The speaker is fully capable of delivering an open, chiming clean sound without the need to sacrifice a satisfying overdriven growl or blistering high-gain lead lines.
Increasingly difficult to come by, the G12-35XC has now been immortalised as a collection of digitally downloadable impulse responses, so now it’s available to buy with no limits!
Each cabinet’s IR 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 IRs altogether per cabinet.
