IDEAL FOR: A portable powerhouse rig when paired with The Sheriff 22& 44. Also works well with VX The Kraken, RD1 and BD1. When you hear one, you’ll realise why plenty of former 4×12 fans have ditched their quad boxes for these.
SPEAKER CHARACTERISTICS:The Vintage 30 is a very efficient (100dB), relatively powerful, large-magnet (Ceramic, 50 ounce) 12-inch driver. Clear highs, projecting upper mids and strong bottom end make it a favourite with players who like modern gained sounds and/or high headroom cleans with minimal speaker breakup/distortion. Here it’s paired with a Celestion G-12H Anniversary (also 100dB), noted for its contribution to classic ’60s and ’70s rock: plenty of bottom-end tightness, top-end clarity, punch and aggression. Pairing these speakers (the G12H is in the top) adds a touch of ‘vintage’ classic rock tone and feel compared with the dual Celestion Vintage 30 version (V212-VV). If you want a more ‘vintage’ still, try the V212-VC with G12M-65 Creambacks.
