NAMM WINTER SESSION, ANAHEIM, CA, January 15, 2004 — Following the success of its critically acclaimed G12 Century™ Vintage guitar speaker, leading designer and manufacturer Celestion announces the introduction of the G10 Vintage and G10A-15 guitar speakers. The new 10" guitar drivers are the latest additions to Celestion’s extensive range of guitar, bass, and PA speakers.

The G10 Vintage is a 10", 60 Watt, ceramic magnet speaker in a pressed steel chassis offering very fast, responsive, and efficient operation. Celestion’s R&D team has voiced the G10Vintage so it can produce classic vintage tones with plenty of growl for solid bass, muscular mids, and an extremely articulate top end. In addition, the G10Vintage employs a 1" round copper voice coil, has a frequency range of 100-7000 Hz, and sensitivity of 97 dB (1 Watt @ 1 meter).

Celestion has also stepped into the traditional 10" Alnico market to recreate the tone achieved by guitarists in the late 1950s. The result is the G10A-15 a 10", 15 Watt, lightweight (3 lbs.) Alnico magnet speaker in a pressed steel chassis that has sweet, bright characteristics with a “classic American amplifier” purity of tone. The G10A-15 also employs a 1" round copper voice coil, has a frequency range of 100-7000 Hz, and sensitivity of 95 dB (1 Watt @ 1 meter).

Both the G10 Vintage and G10A-15 feature exceptional performance with the tone and responsiveness that has made Celestion the worldwide standard for musical instrument speakers over the past eight decades.
