    They say they sell Celestions, and they say they say Hellatones which are broken-in Celestions.

    So do they sell actual NEW Celestions? I was quoted a price of $349 for 4 Vintage 30s or g12Hs. Was that probably a Hellatone quote, or new Celestions quote, or what?

    Thanks.

    Yep, Many a raw speaker from Dave and team. Always the best price around.
    If you email asking for the latest price list he will send it for all celestions he has.

    They are a Celestion dealer. They sell new Celestions at very competitive prices. Great service too.

    I've bought speakers from Avatar many times with no problems--- Celestions and others--- they will sell you the Celestions or the broken-in Hellatones (which are Celestion speakers---Avatar puts them through a break-in process and puts Hellatone labels on the magnets)..........gldtp99

    Great stuff. The Hellatone 60L mixed with a Hellatone 30 in a 2x12 is mighty fine mix.
