If you’ve got a choice of which impedance you want your amp to run at, does it make a difference which speakers you pick? We find out by comparing a Celestion Vintage 30 8 ohm against a 16 ohm version (with the amp set to match).

This series is an attempt to show how different speakers affect guitar tone in heavy Rock and Heavy Metal. We’re showcasing Celestion speakers, namely the Vintage 30, EVH, Lynchback, K100, and Creamback M, H and Neo.

The guitar parts used are from “Daemons” by The Dead XIII – playthrough video here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuEwG…

The guitars were recorded through Blackstar 1046L6 amps (and we took the DI tracks from after their pedal rigs) and re-amped through the same amp, with the Crunch, OD1 and OD2 channels used in the same settings as the Dead XIII guitarists used on the live performance day.

The Cabinet used was a Zilla Fatbaby 1×12, and the Microphones used were an sE Electronics VR1 Voodoo Ribbon and a Shure SM57.

NO EQ WAS USED AT ALL. No compression, no nothing. If you want to EQ your guitars to fit into a mix, that’s understandable but we wanted you to know what they sound like straight off the desk.
