Celestion Classic Lead 80 Guitar Speaker

Celestion's Classic Lead 80 speaker is known by rock guitarists for its speed and ability to give definition to every note of even highly distorted chords.

The Celestion Classic Lead 80 is a fine example of the sonic characteristics of a loudspeaker evolving as materials become available. Revolutionary in the late '70s, a fiberglass voice coil former - capable of withstanding very high temperatures - was used to give the Celestion Classic Lead 80 is a muscular 80 watt power handling. This also increased barrel stiffness, affecting the way the cone vibrated and influencing cone break up. Then, through experimentation with edge treatments and continued critical listening, some modes were encouraged while others were suppressed, contributing to the speaker's unique sound.

Today, the Celestion Classic Lead 80 is much-loved by lead guitarists for its speed, punch and articulation, with every note clearly defined on even big, distorted sounds. The Celestion Classic Lead 80 also sounds great clean, with that same articulation combining with high headroom to deliver a fluid, dynamic performance.

Running a PRS Archon 100 head through a semi-open back 212 birch cabinet. Exactly what I was looking for. I play 70s,80s,90s blues, rock, light metal. Warm sounding, but with a lot more punch. These replaced my Vintage 30s. Was looking for a little more neutral sound. Takes my pedals very well too.Worth every penny.
