The G12M Greenback is perhaps the definitive vintage Celestion ceramic magnet guitar speaker. Developed in the mid-sixties, it was quickly adopted by players like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page, who typified the louder and more aggressive blues rock playing styles that came to characterize that era. The G12M-65 Creamback produces the familiar woody G12M tone, but handles greater power making it ideally suited for today's amps, when a vintage tone is desired. The increased power handling brings with it low end grunt complementing the warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper- mids and sweet, refined highs.

Greenbacks in a 4x12 are great! But go down to a 1x12 or 2x12 and they sound flubby and harsh (plus less power handling). These fix that! Still a classic Celestion M magnet sound, but with more controlled bass and warmer highs. Great for Marshall type amps and smaller cabinets.
J’ai essayé beaucoup de speakers, le Creamback G12M65 les surpasse tous. Le son est parfait, pas trop claire, juste assez de mid et de base. Le son clean est fantastique et le speaker prends très bien les pédales d’effets, la disto passe très bien. En bref ce speaker est très versatile. Je le recommande sans hésitation.
Google Translate: "I tried a lot of speakers, the Creamback G12M65 surpasses them all. The sound is perfect, not too light, just enough mid and basic. The clean sound is fantastic and the speaker takes very well the effects pedals, the distortion goes very well. In short this speaker is very versatile. I recommend it without hesitation."
