The speaker specialists at Celestion have unveiled their latest creation, the G12M-50 Hempback.
A 50W design, the Hempback's name is inspired by its hemp cone – chosen for its unique tonal characteristics. It features a ceramic magnet that weighs in at 35oz and – according to Celestion – is ideal for mellowing out brighter-voiced amps.
Elsewhere, the Hempback packs a formidable low-end punch and a nice and balanced midrange, while still retaining smoothness and clarity on the higher end.
A price and release date for the Celestion G12M-50 Hempback speaker have yet to be announced.
