i need to get some new celestions for my 4x10 laney cab. just wondering what sort of thing would be best for me- i play 80's metal like Iron Maiden and Skid Row
price isnt a worry. are the gold series ones good?

do tell

I suggest you get a 4x12 cab instead

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

Celestions aren't the only speakers in the world you know


i know, but i can get them at cost price lol, rather than the RRP

I see, but my point is that if you're playing 80s metal, you'd probably prefer the sound of a 12" speaker for higher gain applications like that.

ah right. well its a Laney LH50 head, so its already nice tight sound. i only really pop the gain on around 5/6 with a Hardwire CM2 for solo boosts

also, sorry if i appear like im saying "NO I DONT WANT A 4x12!" lol, the interent doesnt display my tone of voice

just wondering what a nice set of speakers are. and whilst we're at it, how much does a 1x10 differ from a 1x12?

Quite a lot. My old marshall had a 10". It had very little fullness to my ears and was very brittle sounding. The 12" in my Vypyr is fuller and somewhat smoother sounding.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
