Celestion Announces Pick & Mix Option For Impulse Response Library

Celestion announces a new way for customers to acquire and build upon their library of Impulse Responses, the company’s authentic digitally downloadable loudspeaker tones, The Pick & Mix option.

Available in combinations of either 3 or 5 cabinets from the company’s full range of IRs, The Pick & Mix option gives customers complete flexibility in the way they choose to build their personal IR library at a significant savings compared to purchasing individual IRs.

The entire family of Celestion Impulse Responses, which currently includes 15 sets of classic Celestion loudspeaker IRs introduced during the past year, are available for audition and download at newly redesigned Celestion Plus.

With the Pick & Mix offer, customers can choose to include IRs from the same loudspeaker or different loudspeakers, and in any combination of cabinet types (1×12, 2×12, 4×12, closed or open back.) This option makes it simple to build a Celestion Impulse Response collection that includes only the loudspeakers and cabinet types that match particular interests and style of playing.

For example, heavy metal players might favor a 4 x 12 cabinet, the choice could be 4 x 12 closed back cabinets for the Vintage 30, G12M Greenback, G12-65, G12H-150 Redback or the G12-50GL Lynchback. And for “purer” speaker tones, perhaps more appropriate for melodic lead guitar, a player might want to focus on 1×12 or 2×12 cabinets, together with speakers that have been tried and tested on countless solos throughout the years, such as the Classic Lead 80 1×12, Neo Creamback 1×12, G12H Anniversary 1×12 and 2×12.

The Pick & Mix collection options of 5 or 3 cabinets offer significant savings over the cost of buying cabinets alone. The 5 Cab Custom Collection allows customers to pick any combinations of five cabinets for almost 50% off the price of buying the cabinets separately. And with the 3 Cab Custom Collection, customers can pick any three cabinets for more than 40% off the price of buying 3 cabinets separately. So it’s never been more affordable to quickly build an entire IR library of favorite Celestion speakers.

“The Celestion collection of Impulse Responses have received overwhelmingly positive acclaim from customers around the world,” says Nigel Wood, Celestion CEO. “We want to be able to offer our customers more creative flexibility and value when purchasing our IRs, and so we’re delighted to introduce the Pick &Mix options.”

The Pick & Mix option is also a valuable audition tool for customers planning to buy physical Celestion speakers. As choosing from the company’s extensive range can be challenging, as there’s no easy way to get a true like-for-like comparison between several speakers at the same time, the Pick & Mix option allows customers to create a shortlist of their 3 or 5 speakers and try them all with their own guitars and amps before they buy.

The ever-growing family of authentic Celestion Impulse Responses which are available for purchase on Celestion Plus. include the G12-50GL Lynchback, Classic Lead 80, Classic Gold, A-Type , Neo Creamback, G12-H150 Redback, G12M Greenback, G12M-65 Creamback, G12M-75 Creamback, G12H Anniversary, G12-65, Cream, G12-35XC, Celestion Blue and Vintage 30 models mounted in 1×12 and 2×12 open and closed back and 4×12 cabinets.
