Celestion G12H Creamback 112 Closed


The Celestion® G12H Creamback 112 Closed is an official Celestion® DynIR captured from a G12H Creamback driver retrofitted in a closed-back 1×12 enclosure.

The late 60s saw the release of the infamous G12H. Embracing their inner frankenstein, Celestion® took the body of the iconic G12M and outfitted this with an H-type (heavy) magnet. The results? Power by the boat-load and shake-up the tonal characteristics of the source driver. With its robust bass response and a more pronounced top-end, it’s no wonder it was adopted by players seeking a distinctive edge for everything from blues-fuelled raunch to harder classic rock. This very same mantra was the spark that led to the current G12H-75 Creamback, where the ever-popular G12M-65 Creamback was modified to unleash a new breed of high-power, sonically-distinct driver. Expect unmistakeable G12H tone underpinned with a tight low-end, lashings of punch and a dynamic, articulate highs. Add to this pin-point focus, body and girth, and you’ve hit the jackpot when it comes to a larger-than-life driver perfect for searing leads and oversized rhythm tones alike. In short, it’s a tonal monster and a sure-fire guarantee for leviathan-grade sonics!

For players seeking a forward-projecting tone, tight low-end response and definitive bite in your mid-range, a closed-back 1×12 enclosure is a one-stop shop – lest we forget a firm favourite of FOH engineers! If you’re in the market for a parallel slant on the G12H Creamback’s primo sonics, complete with a pushed, punchy tone capped with lashings of driver compression, this capture is a certified essential!
