I was in at livesound on Friday and found out that they’ve just made a deal with Celestion and their first shipment is on the way. They won’t be carrying a comprehensive range, but hopefully will hold the popular ones in stock.

What would you consider the essentials?

greenbacks, creambacks, vintage 30's, blues .... just greenbacks would do me! :D

Yep they're the winners, the ones I always wish I could find locally :) Thank fuck we are getting an importer again!

If only somebody would bring in jensens.... that would be gravy.

A one-stop-shop for Celestion and Eminence is a pretty good start though!

G12H30's and V30's :)

For some reason I thought the V30s were out of favour? Jensen might be a bridge too far for them, but someone needs to take it on!

I like to mix up V30's, I don't like them on there own usually. They tend to overpower greenbacks though... V30 and a bog standard T75 works for me.

any other options outside of eminence (which seem to be very expensive compared to celestions)

They kind of are out of favour but if you pair one with a G12H30 they sound awesome (IMHO) :thumbup:

I was talking to John at live sound about a year ago and he was in negotiations with Celestion at the time. I don’t think they wanted him to keep Eminence but he was keen to have both, looks like he won that argument!
Great to have an NZ dealer again!
