Celestion G12M Hempback 212 Closed


The Celestion® G12M Hempback 212 Closed is an official Celestion® DynIR captured from a pair of Hempback drivers retrofitted in an closed-backed 2×12 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 wide sonic soundstage and lashings of low-end thump? Never content with anything short of sublime clarity and grade-a articulation? Sounds like you’re in the market for a primo 2×12 enclosure! With this closed based variant, expect boat-loads of driver compression resulting in the epitome of a tight low-end response, oodles of punch and definitive bite in your mid-range – a one-of-a-kind slant on the Hempback’s lush sonics to give your performance a veritable fog of unique distinction.

Part of the “Celestion® Presents: The G12M-50 Hempback” DynIR cabinet collection, the G12M Hempback 212 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.
