Overall: This is a great speaker for rock, tight low end, present midrange and smooth highs. Some folks are off put by the "upper mid spike" but in the right amp or paired with the right speaker this compliments the tone beautifully instead of being an annoyance. Great articulate sounding speaker. Highly recommend pairing it with a Swamp Thang in a 2x12.

Back to Product Information
Sound: I have this speaker in my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe. I play Country Music along with my Fender Telecaster. This combination is very clean, powerful , and loaded with tone. I plan to replace the Black Widows in my Twin Reverb with Vintage 30's very soon! Feature: The speaker is very well built and looks as good as it sounds. It carries itself perfectly in my kind of music. Quality: This speaker in conjunction with my Hot Rod Deluxe is a very reliable, powerful combination suitable for any gig. I've used it outside, in ballrooms, and on our last cd. No disappointments whatsoever! Value: The value is surprisingly great considering the low price. Manufacturer Support: No. I haven't dealt with them. The Wow Factor: It's fantastic. Overall: Ten years or more. I thought I was happy with the Peavey Black Widows in my Twin until I bought my Hot Rod Deluxe with the Celestion Vintage 30. I only hope my Twin sounds as good with a pair of Vintage 30's in them.

Overall: Upgraded the factory speaker in my Marshall DSL 40c with the vintage 30. The difference is knight and day . Have used this speaker in many amps, boxes with everything from blues to metal and it performs! There is a reason you see the vintage thirty in almost all the top shelf rigs out there. It lives up to its reputation, stop thinking about it and buy it now ! You want regret it ...

Sound: Outstanding sound clarity, bass response, and tightness when pushed hard. I have two of them in a cab hooked up to various amps. They can bring out the best of any amp, especially sweet Fender cleans--but they sound great with anything. Value: Great price for the sound quality. Overall: A 2x12 cab loaded with these speakers revitalized all my amps. I have mostly Vox and Fender tube amps, and the clarity and punch I get from adding these speakers to any rig is outstanding. Great buy.

Sound: These vintage 30's sound amazing! Excellent sound quality. You will get good low end and mid range from these speakers and the highs sound great as well. I can play all styles of music with these speakers and you can, too. Feature: These speakers really don't have any special features, but the magnet is much bigger than the stock speaker that I replaced. Quality: When I first took these speakers out of the box I could tell that I had some very well made speakers. I email Celestion before buying these speakers because they were made in China. They explained that the factory uses the same quality parts as they use in England. So, don't worry. Not even about the glue that is used! Value: These speakers are worth the price. Every bit. Manufacturer Support: They answer emails right away and will tell you what speaker to buy and not to buy. Overall: IMO, these are the best replacement speakers that one can buy. I put these speakers in my Genz Benz G Flex 2X12 cabinet. Now I have that Rectifier sound without the huge price tag. The way that the G Flex cabinet is baffled, the Celestion Vintage 30 60watt speakers produce a sound that will make you hate to put your guitar down!
