Celestion’s Ruby

Celestion, manufacturer of pro sound guitar and bass loudspeakers, will present the latest in its series of alnico magnet guitar speakers, Celestion Ruby, alongside the others at NAMM 2020, booth 7602.

Hailing from its heyday in the 1960s, Celestion’s latest alnico magnet guitar speaker has been purpose built to create smooth, warm vintage tones. Rated at 35-watts power handling, the Ruby is ideal for use with mid-powered amps and combos.

Joining the Blue, Gold and Cream as the fourth Celestion G12 alnico, the Ruby is the latest addition to the bunch. All of the four speakers have different tonality, the Ruby offering “richly musical vintage warmth, with silky highs and a rich and a smooth and multi-dimensional midrange”.
