Just like a Rola Greeback G12M

KennyK, 23.02.2014
Short story. I don't own a Pre-Rola Greenback, but I have got an early Rola-Greenback from '72 and from '74. The Heritage Greenback makes a wonderful job in comparison to the Rola-Greenbacks.

Long story :-) Please listen to the pre-Rola era Celestion G12M 25W "Greenback" speakers and its reissued model, the Heritage G12M. Celestion actually states on it's website that the Heritage-series speakers are all hand made, and are constructed out of the very same materials as the old ones. Well, if you listen to those clips, I guess it's clear that they don't lie. Of course, the Heritage one sounds way more harsh, but that's only because of the difference in age. After hours of playing (30-40 hrs) the sound changes completely, softens and becomes creamy like butter-milk, but keeps the lively character all Greenback addicts are looking for. To be more specific, the Heritage G12M sounds just like the pre-Rola era G12M sounded 40 years ago, when it was new. So I have to remark that Celestion did a very good job recreating the old speakers within the Heritage series.

The Heritage G12M offers lots of complexity and sparkle, with a little grit always present in its voice no matter how clean I ran the amp. At higher settings, the Heritage G12M pushed easily into breakup when I turned up my guitar volume, yielding a tone with great upper-mid and treble presentation and nicely balanced bottom. Love it! Kept it!

very good speaker

pumpal, 07.12.2015
Got this to put in my Fender Champ 12, replacing another Celestion - the G12H-100 (100W) .
I did my tests with a Telecaster ADE, equipped with a Kinman pickup. I recorded some samples with both speakers, using a Noiman mic and outputting the result on my Focal Solo 6 monitors. The tone settings on the amp were basically lows at max, highs at min.

The Greenback produced very detailed and dynamic sound with also more lows, but it lacked in the mid range, resulting in completely different sound - still very pleasant, but different .
All in all, quality product, made in England - I like it and will keep it, though I would be happier if it could do bit more mids. I hope it will get better in that regard after some tens of hours in use.
