Celestion Introduces the G12M-50 Hempback Guitar Speaker

Ipswich, UK (January 18, 2021) —At this year’s Believe in Music virtual show, Celestion, the world’s premier designer and manufacturer of guitar loudspeakers and well-known as the voice of rock and roll behind many of the world’s most memorable guitar performances, announces the introduction of the G12M-50 Hempback, a new guitar speaker which takes Celestion tone in an exciting new direction.

The G12M-50 Hempback is the first ever hemp cone guitar speaker built by Celestion. It features a cone specifically chosen for its tonal character combined with a medium-weight (35oz) ceramic magnet, Well defined and powerful the speaker delivers a thump in the low end, a finely balanced midrange (with just a little Celestion crunch thrown in) and smooth, singing highs. It all adds up to a speaker that’s perfect for deploying with brighter sounding amps, where a more laid- back feel is required. Load up a Hempback for a smooth and “smoky” sound that’s musical and responsive, and let the hemp tone shine through.
