    I have an amp that is a little bass shy, and am hoping the right speaker might help. I am most familiar with Celestions, but would be interested in other suggestions.

    I think a cabinet choice would probably make as much difference a speaker choice (if not more)

    G12H-30 has a nice bass.
    And I agree with the Creamback suggestion

    Heritage G12H30 (55hz bass cone) - greatly increased the bass response from the stock Jensen speaker for me.

    The V-Type has much deeper and louder bass than the rest. Look at the charts at around 80Hz. It's about +5 dB over their other offerings, and it really does sound deeper in actual use. The A-type is also similar.

    The G12K-100 has the fullest & tightest bass of any of the Celestions I've ever had & I've had green back, G12H30, G12H75 Creamback, Vintage 30, Lead 80, G12-65 & G12T-75. They're a big sounding speaker that has little breakup compared to other Celestions. Think fat &https://www.jhspedals.com/products/guitar-pedals/angrycharlie/ clean.

    If these don't appeal to you, keep in mind that the Celestions with an "H" in the model number, designates an "H" type, 50 oz. magnet, which typically gives more base than the "M" magnets.

    that's why I don't get the M65 Creamback recommendations...

    but hey, what do I know



    Btw: Weber build their Legacys also with 80 oz magnets......

    I've never heard a G12K-100 so I couldn't comment on that one.
    The Creamback does have more bass than the standard V30's or Greenbacks
