Awesome Speaker!!
Seegs2, 04.07.2014
One of the 3 new speakers released by Celestion, the A Type is supposed to be a high headroom American voiced speaker. I really don't hear that. I bought it to replace a Celestion Gold to give my Morgan RG15 more headroom and volume for gigs. The Morgan is similar to a Vox AC15.

It does have more headroom but that is mostly because the bass is very tight and punchy, unlike the Gold where the bass end breaks up. The A Type also does not have the British chime or top end sparkle of the Gold but it has a nice and round and warm top end that is still clear. This speaker sounds great clean and also over drives very creamy smooth.

The most surprising thing is that it sounds better with a Vox style amp than it does with my 64 Blackface Bassman. In the Bassman I love 10" Golds and use 3 of them.

Warm speaker to fill up a boxy cab
MMihai3, 23.01.2020
I ordered this speaker to compensate for the boxy tone of my Fender Bassbreaker 15 combo because, with the V-Type the amp was originally provided with, the tone was too thin and boxy. This A-Type speaker did exactly what I was expecting it to do.

The tone of the A-Type is wide, has more bass than the V-Type and I think it is a bit louder - though I did not perform a shootout. It sounds full, sweet and creamy. I would not recommend it in a dark sounding cabinet.

The speaker could be mounted with no issues - only the poly membrane, inside the screw holes, needed to be punched - it is soft, though.

Toller aber untypischer Speaker aus dem Hause Celestion
Mr.Rock, 09.01.2017
Celestion ist DER britische Speakersound.
Mit dem A Type versucht der Traditionshersteller von britischen Gitarrentönen eine Interpretation des AmiRockSounds abzuliefern.
In der Tat klingt dieser Lautsprecher "anders", aber das war genau das, was ich suchte, ohne in Richtung Electro Voice EVM abzudriften. Den EVM 12 habe ich auch im Einsatz.
Im Mittenbereich ist der A Typ, Celestion untypisch, nicht überbetont. Es fehlt der leicht nasale Part im Soundbild, den ich von meinen Greenbacks kenne und liebe.
Clean klingt er toll ungefärbt. Mit einem gut verzerrenden Amp, wie meinem Laney Ironheart, entwickelt der A Typ seine Qualitäten. Es ist eine wahre Freude, wie dieser Speaker das Riffing unterstützt. Direkt, räumlich, ehrlich mit viel Druck, bei höheren Lautstärken.
In Kombination mit meinem JVM bleibt kein Auge trocken. Es ist unfassbar, wie der Speaker den Sound formt. Es sind wie zwei total unterschiedliche Amps, je nach dem, ob der JVM an Greenbacks oder an dem A Type hängt.
Ich spiele den Speaker in einer alten 2 x 12 Fenderbox, umgebaut für 1 x12 Betrieb. Er ist geschlossen. Das ist wichtig....

Wer einen etwas anderen Ton sucht, sollte zugreifen.

Warmer Sound - aber ....
Armand, 13.01.2015
Ich bestellte für meine beiden LANEY Ironheart 30-112 Combo´s zwei Speaker zur Auswahl: den Celestion V-Type (English Style) und den A-Type (American Style) - der V30 kam wegen der bekannten ekligen Mitten-Nase nicht in Frage ...

Grund - der von LANEY verbaute HH-Custom Speaker ist zwar ÜBERRASCHEND GUT, aber die Höhen sind dermassen übertrieben, dass ich den Treble-Cut fast auf Position 9 Uhr stellen musste - wer den VOX AC-30 CUT Regler kennt, weiss wovon ich rede !

Also baute ich zuerst den A-Type Speaker ein und spielte diesen an drei Gigs ...
Der Speaker hat gehörig Luft und Druck, sehr straffe Bässe und eine gute Detailzeichnung ! Das empfand ich schon mal als SEHR POSITIV !
Die Wärme, die dieser Speaker in den Sound hineinzaubert, ist schon fast eine Frechheit ! Keine harschen Obermitten - nein - ein wunderbar rundes Klangbild - ausser beim High Gain "Lead-Brett" - da hat er mir ganz und gar ned gefallen !
Was mir auch negativ auffiel beim rockigen Gig war, dass bei höheren Lautstärken das Bassig-Mittige des Speakers überwiegt, d.h. man muss zwangsläufig die Höhen aufdrehen !

Fazit des A-Typ-Tests: Fetter Clean und Chrunch-Sound vom Feinsten !! High-Gain hat mich ned wirklich überzeugt - da kommt er dann ziemlich mittig und hart daher ! Also eher ein sehr guter Speaker für Country, Blues und Jazz !!!!

Dann habe ich den V-Type eingebaut (glücklicherweise bestellte ich beide !) und die Sonne ging auf !!!! Absolut geiler, sehr detaillierter, sahnig-singender Sound !! Auch im High-Gain-Bereich eine Wonne ! Also könnt ihr Euch nun selber ausmalen, welche Speaker in meinem beiden LANEY IRONHEART 112-30 Combo´s zukünftig ihren Dienst tun werden ! :-)

Grundsätzlich kann man das folgendermassen aufschlüsseln:

A-Type - sehr gut für Country, Blues & Jazz !
V-Type - sehr gut für Rock, Hardrock & Heavy, aber ebenfalls für Country, Blues usw.
Der V-Type ist meiner Meinung nach sicherlich DIE BESSERE WAHL - so oder so ! Wesentlich gutmütigerer und vielseitigerer Speaker und dies ohne die bekannte, eklige Mitten-Nase des V30ers ! :-)

Ich hoffe, ich konnte Euch bei der Kaufentscheidung etwas helfen ... ? :-)
