    I wonder is the Creamback G12H-75 fits into the Blues Deluxe Amp... The G12M is 5.1" overall depth and the G12H its 5.4" overall depth

    People put Vintage 30s in HRDs and its the same amp with a different gain channel. Same dimensions.


    Should be fine with an H75 as the Vintage 30 and H75 share same magnet weight and dimensions.

    @sdahe Id go either H75 or M65 for your taste.

    H75 would be my choice either is a great option.

    I guess the 75 would give me more headroom right?

    Yes sir.

    But I mean at 65 watts with the M65 and H75 at 75 its not a whole lot different in that sense. To notice a change like that youd have to have a 100-125-watts to claim a conciderable difference in headroom.

    But what I would add is that the bigger magnet will provide huge nice lows and the highs may be a smoother and more refined. But definately expect more low end with the bigger magnet.

    Hello guys... I ended up putting a Celestion Creamback in the amp but there is something weird. I installed the speaker and I'm doing the break in steps from the celestion website. The weird thing is that Im getting a strange "fuzzy" sound, mostly in the basses. Im playing in the clean channel of the amp. Could this be the speaker or a bad tube or something?

    My guess is that something is rattling, either the speaker isn't properly attached or it's something in the cabinet. It could also be a tube that rattles, in which case the rattle will be amplified.

    Also could be a sypatathetic vibration due to the chassis not possibly screwed into the cab right. make sure to tighten all the screws.

    Make sure the back panels aren't vibrating. Also...it is possible to overtighten the mounting nuts and distort the frame causing a voice coil rub. They only need to be tight enough to hold the speaker in place. I use a long throw socket and use only my hand (no handle) and I use my weak hand to tighten it. When your fingers slip on the socket...you're done. Also use a star pattern like lug nuts on a car.

    I figured out what it was.. The reverb tank is covered with some kind of plastic or leather bag.. the border of that covers got caught under the side of the speaker and that was making the sound. Placed the speaker back again and everything is awesome. The speaker makes that amp sounds amazing.

    What Creamback did you end up getting?

    The Alnico is great.

    Any of them are great. Been thinking of getting a Ceramic sixty watt for the extra headroom in my AC fifteen.

    Anyone here knows if the Celestion Creamback fits into a Blues Jr Tweed amp?
