Celestion Debuts the Midnight 60 Guitar Speaker at Winter NAMM 2020

Anaheim, CA (January 16, 2020) —Celestion, the premier manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers whose classic guitar tones have made the company famous as the voice of rock and roll, is very pleased to debut the new Midnight 60 loudspeaker at Winter NAMM 2020 (Booths 7602 and ACC North 18500).

An unsung hero that’s been loaded into some very popular branded combos for the last couple of years, the Midnight 60 will soon be available to buy from Celestion vendors the world over, as a super-affordable upgrade option.

This exciting new guitar speaker has come from the same development processes, and has been heavily based upon the extremely successful V-Type. The Midnight 60 continues Celestion’s tradition of delivering rich, classic British tone in innovative new ways, featuring the moving parts that were derived from the V-Type design, but with a different magnet assembly which has the effect of shifting the tonal balance to give a sonic character more reminiscent of a Celestion’s vintage G12L speaker.

Whatever the playing style, Midnight 60 provides an exhilarating sound in the classic Celestion style. Cleans are well-balanced with just enough top end to make the high frequencies sparkle. Overdriven this speaker brings searing rock tones, with plenty of low-end warmth and mid-band character.

Available in 8Ω or 16Ω, this pressed steel frame, ceramic magnet guitar speaker offers 60-watt power handling and an output sensitivity of 96dB.
