Super light, but a bit picky sounding
bananu7, 02.03.2019
The elephant in the room is the weight - yes, it's absurdly light. For a 1x12", that makes for a really portable cab. I can only imagine the day-n-night difference in a 4x12".

That being said, the sound it produces is... picky. It's generally rather bright and open sounding, but might lack downright punch and power in some contexts. I ended up keeping it, and buying a V30s-loaded 2x12, which has absolutely incomparable bass output at LOWER volumes than that.

I would say that it's a great speaker on its own, but you need to be careful and informed about the sound characteristics. If you're unsure about what speaker to buy (especially for a 1x12" or 2x12"), a regular greenback or V30 might be a much safer bet, which would also be easier to trade for something else later. That being said, it's a great speaker that can sound magnificent given proper guitar, amp and player.

I'm giving it 4/5 for sound because it's simply not nearly as straightforwardly good as other Celestion offerings, which seem to sound amazing regardless of what you pair them with.

Phenomenal!
Josip Jakopovic, 07.04.2020
I swear by my hands, this is the best thing that ever happened to me. I replaced my chnese "V-Type" speaker with this one, the combo amp opened up, sounds more vintage, and it weighs a lot less.

super Speaker in kleinen Gehäusen
Uwe A., 11.01.2017
Hi,

ich habe den Speaker mit unterschiedlichen Amps und im Vergleich zu anderen Celestions getestet. Daher eher ein Vergleich, da Sound bekanntlich Geschmacksache ist ;-)
Amps/Boxen: Marshall JVM410H mit 2x12" Marshall 1936V Box, Marshall TSL60 1x12" Combo, Fender Machete 1x12" Combo, Fender Machete Top mit 1x12 Fender Box (geschlossen). Verglichene Speaker: Celestion Vintage 30, Creamback 75H, Creamback 65M, Lynchback.
Der Neo klingt super in den 1x12" Combos und etwas zu basslastig und höhenlos in der 2x12. Große Gehäuse verträgt er nicht ganz so gut, ähnlich wie der Creamback 75H, der sich auch in kleinen Gehäusen besser macht, als in der 2x12. In einem 1x12" Umfeld liegt von den Kandidaten der Neo auf Platz1, er hat dort auch etwas mehr Bässe als die anderen Speaker. Klanglich geht er grob in Richtung Creamback 65M, wobei der in der 2x12" besser klingt. Zusammengefasst: Creamback 65M und Vintage 30 eher im 2x12 Gehäuse (oder größer), Creamback 75H und Creamback Neo eher in einem 1x12 Gehäuse.
Fazit: Der Neo ist für mich im 1x12 Umfeld die erste Wahl geworden, der Creamback 65M in 2x12 Boxen.
