Ipswich, UK (November 20, 2019) — Celestion, the premier manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers celebrated for their classic guitar tones, is pleased to introduce the G10 Vintage Collection of Impulse Responses. The new Collection, along with the versatile collection of authentic Celestion guitar speaker tones, is available for audition and download at CelestionPlus.
The Celestion G10 Vintage is the natural progression of the respected Vintage 10 speaker, delivering original British rock attitude with powerful and rich tones. Constructed using the same voice coil design as the iconic Vintage 30, the G10 Vintage punches well above its weight for a 10-inch, 60-watt speaker. For players who want flexibility in their speaker set-up, the G10 Vintage is the perfect solution. With a meaty mid-range and a solid bass, the Celestion G10 Vintage speaker adds richness to hollow-sounding amps, as well as offering deeper, heavier, humbucker-type girth from single-coil guitars. Use in singles to add warm vocal tones to small valve combos or use in a 4×10 cabinet for a more aggressive, heavier rock sound.
The expert sound engineers at Celestion have worked tirelessly to accurately record the weighty yet eloquent tones of the Celestion G10 Vintage speaker in digital format as a range of speaker impulse responses available for digital download.
The complete tonal range of the G10 Vintage speaker is available to download in the following classic cabinet configurations.
- 1×10 (open back)
- 1×10 (closed back)
- 2×10 (open back)
- 2×10 (closed back)
- 4×10 (closed back)
The G10 Vintage impulse responses were recorded at world-class facilities using the highest quality recording equipment and techniques available. Using three industry-standard professional microphones in six fully-adjustable locations around each cabinet arrangement, the full range of speaker tones are labelled within the Impulse Response files as:
- Dark 2
The new Celestion G10 Vintage speaker impulse response collection can be downloaded as individual cabinet configuration files or as a complete set for a discount of up to 50%.
As with the entire collection of Celestion speaker impulse responses, the G10 Vintage collection is available to download in .WAV format to ensure they are compatible with the majority of amp modelling software and plugins.

About Celestion Impulse Responses
Celestion IRs, which capture the essential behavior of the cabinet in the specific space in which it was recorded, including the frequency and phase response of single drivers as well as the interaction of multiple speakers, offer the user significant benefits. In both recording and live production, Celestion IRs enable the desired tone to be precisely and consistently reproduced regardless of the music recording or live sound environment. And IR users can escape the limitations of a single mic and cabinet setup and explore a universe of possibilities to create the perfect tone. Once you find a tone that you love, it can be precisely recreated, in the studio or on the road, time after time. And the IRs allow Celestion customers to audition specific models before purchasing one or more physical speakers.
Celestion IR digital downloads are available in uncompressed, industry standard .WAV format at 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz and 96 kHz sample rates at 24 bit depth, in lengths of 200 and 500 milliseconds Once the files are downloaded and unzipped, users simply load the IRs into a convolution plug-in in their DAW or into other processing hardware. These formats will work in all known hardware capable of loading IRs, and for the most popular hardware Celestion have already grouped together the correct formats. Guitar processor manufacturers supported include (but are not limited to) Atomic Amps, Fractal Audio Systems, Kemper, Line 6, Logidy, Positive Grid, Two Notes, Headrush and Yamaha. The Celestion IR files may be downloaded in the sample rate and length appropriate for the hardware being used or as a complete package of all rates and lengths. Certain third party hardware requires the files to be converted into a proprietary format before use.
