Celestion Announces the G10 Creamback Guitar Speaker Impulse Response

Celestion, the world’s premier designer and manufacturer of guitar loudspeakers and well-known as the voice of rock and roll behind many of the world’s most memorable guitar performances, is pleased to announce the addition of the G10 Creamback Impulse Response to its impressive collection of digitally downloadable Celestion Impulse Responses available for audition and download at CelestionPlus.

The G10 Creamback guitar speaker delivers rich classic Celestion Creamback tone in a smaller 10” format. With a ceramic magnet, a 1.75-inch voice coil, and 45-watts of power handling, the G10 Creamback is built using the same production methods and materials developed for the 12” Creambacks. Just like its bigger brothers, the G10 Creamback is hand-built in the UK. Punchy and dynamic, its tone is warm, expressive, detailed and well-balanced. Now the G10 Creamback guitar speaker has been captured as an IR, an accurate digital representation, which provides all the warmth and detail that guitar players love in the physical 10” Creamback.

The G10 Creamback speaker impulse response collection includes five different cabinet configurations:
1×10 (open back)
1×10 (closed back)
2×10 (open back)
2×10 (closed back)
4×10 (closed back)

Each one of the cabinet configurations was recorded with painstaking accuracy by our expert sound engineers, in a world-class studio, using three pro-grade studio microphones – the Sennheiser MD421, Royer R-121 ribbon mic and Shure SM57 – each in six different positions (plus a rear mic for the open back cabs). All the positions are referred to in the IR files as Balanced, Bright, Fat, Thin, Dark and Dark 2. A Neumann TLM107 room mic was also used to provide additional mic mixes, giving users an impressive range of tonal options.

As with all genuine Celestion IRs, the new G10 Creamback impulse responses are downloaded in .WAV format for compatibility with most DAWs, IR plug-ins and amp modelling software.

The new G10 Creamback IRs join the extensive collection of genuine Celestion Impulse Responses, with guitar IRs such as the A-Type, Celestion Blue, Celestion Cream, Celestion Gold, Classic Lead 80, Heritage G12H 55Hz, Heritage G12M, G12 EVH, G12K-100, G12-35XC, G12T-75, G12-50GL Lynchback, G12-H150 Redback, G12M Greenback, G12M-65 Creamback, G12M-75 Creamback, G12H Anniversary, G12-65, Neo Creamback, V-Type, Vintage 30 and bass impulse responses such as the BL10-100X, BN15-400X, BN10-200X, BN15-300X, PULSE10, PULSE12 and PULSE15.
