Celestion G12M Hempback 112 Closed


The Celestion® G12M Hempback 112 Closed is an official Celestion® DynIR captured from a singular Hempback driver retrofitted in a closed-back 1×12 enclosure.

We’ve all heard about the wonders of Hemp! It’s a protein powerhouse, packed full of essential fatty acids, a source of BioFuel and above all, environmentally sustainable – who would have known it’s killer in the all-important tone department to boot!

Released in 2021, the Hempback heralds a new-era in Celestion®’s pursuit of next-generation guitar sonics. Fusing deft levels of definition, a superbly balanced low-end, oodles of mid-range presence and buttery smooth – some might say, ‘smokey’ – highs, the 50-Watt G12M Hempback exists in a class of its own. Expertly engineered for American voiced amps, expect a nefarious blend of tonal distinction and a hyper-articulate response that’s exquisitely tuned for clean and saturated tones alike.

Seeking a forward-projecting tone, tight low-end response and definitive bite in your mid-range? A closed-back 1×12 enclosure is in order and a bonafide belle-of-the-ball when it comes to FOH engineers; in a nutshell, this capture offers an alternate slant on the Hempback’s primo sonics, perfect for players that demand a pushed, punchy tone capped with lashings of driver compression.

Part of the “Celestion® Presents: The G12M-50 Hempback” DynIR cabinet collection, the G12M Hempback 112 Closed has been expertly-captured at Celestion® HQ using stellar recording peripherals and a mic collection that affords seamless adaptability from the studio to the stage.
