NY Amp Show '09-Celestion Alnico Gold & Blue Demos
June 24, 2009
PGs Joe Coffey is On Location at the 2009 New York Amp Show where he stops by the Celestion booth. In this video, we not only get to hear some of Celestions newest speakers, including their to-be-released G10 Alnico Golds, but we get to hear them played through an assortment of drool-worthy amps like a Dumble Special Overdrive (with EL34 tubes), Trainwreck Liverpool and a Bruno Underground 30.
The new G10 Alnico Golds are said to blend unmistakable Alnico class with a rich low-end, creamy midrange and vintage chiming top-end.
Also, we get to hear some Heritage G12-65s, which are known for their fast attack and tightly controlled low-end.
In addition, we get a taste of G10 Greenbacks-low in output but with the weighty low-end balance of a 12 they offer creamy mid-range and smooth, vintage top-end.
And last but not least, we get to demo the Alnico Blue 12 (a favorite of Brian May), which is used for its dampened attack, warm lows, mellow upper-mids and brilliant bell-like top-end.
