Celestion’s first guitar loudspeaker featuring a ceramic magnet structure, the G12M ‘Greenback’ presented almost as much magnetic flux to the voice coil as an Alnico formulation, but in a much more compact space. As a result the Greenback became the guitar loudspeaker that paved the way for use with higher power amplifiers. And, of course, the ceramic magnet presented its own unique tonal characteristics. The Greenback has a loud and assertive character that sounds great through a valve amp pushed into overdrive. The speaker has evolved over the decades and still presents that instantly familiar woody tone, delivered with a knockout punch.

happy students Review by johnniegrind
I bought this speaker to replace a 150 watt celestion that comes in the 1912 cab....Not great and certainly no mesa boogie ev rival.
This greenback has been in 1 week and my students are now using it with a jcm 2000 head instead of mesa stilleto/1936 vintage cab or carvin v3 with 1936 standard cab. Students impressed by the improvement with some guessing a new speaker before telling them!!!! Impressive indeed......Will gig it soon and see how it compares in a live situ soon...
