I'm very unhappy to start this thread, but I'm quite angry about my experimence with Celestion UK products I must say I love the company and their speakers. I adore Celestion sound! I have tried many other brands, but Celestion speakers are just the right ones for me. But here are my "experiences" with Made in UK Celestions from last few years: - I bouth two G12M Heritage 16ohm speakers. One has a problem with the cone, there was a really big cone cry. The other one was OK. The "bad" speaker was new, so I got an other one from the shop. OK, no problem, just some stupid walk to the post office etc., you know how bothering it can be... - I bought two G12H 75Hz Heritage 16ohm speakers. One has a problem with the cone, it made some buzing sound when some lower frequencies were played. Again, I got a new speaker from the shop. No problem at all... After my experiences with those Heritage speakers I started to "test" all my new speakers. I always sent some lower frequency (100Hz sine, I use about 3 volts, so the speaker is tested VERY gently) to test the cone. If there is something bad, it will make some weird sound. I bought some Vintage 30s, some G12M ri Greenbacks, G10N-40s... All were made in China. I tested them all, no problems, all were GREAT! I should say that I help my friends with their gear etc., so I'm buying things a lot. I have bought about five dozens of Celestion speakers in few last years... - About 3 months ago, I bough two G10 Gold 16ohm speakers. One made a really weird sound when I tried to do some of my tests. It showed that there was two quite big drops of glue that were between the cone and the frame. The cone hit those drops and it made some stupid noise. I tried the speaker with my amp - it was really bad, there were some horrible noises coming from the speaker. So I returned it again and got a new one. No problem at all... - Few days ago I blew my four years old G12 Gold 16 ohm (50W) with my 15W amp. No pedals, only guitar to the amp, I played the A on the G string few times and it killed the speaker. I said "OK, it can happen", no problem at all. I also started the thread on the TGP about this to get some info, 'cause I was quite nervous about my other speakers... - Yesterday, I bouth two G10 Gold 8 ohm speakers. I wanted to build a 210 cab that could be used with my Bad Cat amp. Today, I tested both G10 Gold speakers. One of them has some problem with the cone, it made some "click" buzz sounds when I sent some 100hz to it. Thne, I very gently tried to move the cone with my hands, I was so lucky to find a spot that made that click sound. It seems there is some drop of glue or something that hits the cone and it makes that stupid sound... So I will send the speaker to the retailer again. The retailer must think that I'm some idiot that likes to ruin the most expensive speakers just for fun! What a nice feeling! I must say again that I have no problems with Chinese Celestions. They are made so well, there must be very strict quality limits at the factory. But my experiences with UK made ones? A half of them: just lemons... I'm I weirdo? Do I have a bad luck? How about your experience???
