    I´ve found a pair of these really cheap in my local ads. I didn´t find much info on the 50w version of these, just 20 watters. Any thoughts? I really dig my G12h anniversary and I´d buy these for a different cab.

    Could not find any info on that one, just the 20W which is supposed to be the same thing as my Heritage 20M.

    50W sounds intriguing to me if they are still 96dB or even less efficient.

    Maybe it's just that 50w Lynchback?

    The response from celestion:

    Yes, they are real. They have been custom made for the EVH brand.

    Me: Thanks for your response, do you have more info about it? Like the response curve, sensitivity, etc

    celestion: I’m afraid not as it’s a custom speaker. But as a benchmark, it’s not far off the G12H Anniversary…

    Well it sounds like it's an H magnet speaker, meaning it will probably have a sensitivity of 100db.

    update: I bought it. It will be in my home next week, if it sounds like a 50w version of the G12H it will sound killer with the 2203kk.

    Well, my 1st impressions:

    It's not a fair comparisson against the EVH212 because the geometry in both cabinets are very different, and I've only tested with the 2203kk. so take that in consideration.

    generally speaking the speakers are much brighter than the EVH, but brighter in the perfect way. It's like instant "80s marshall sound" and I really love it!

    For now I couldnt be happier with the results, I have recorded a very simple sample with my phone and the iRig Lav standing in the same distance of both cabs. It's in portuguese, so ignore it. the brighter sounds are the EVH Speakers in a 2x12 and the more muffled the original EVH212.

    During the week I'll test it in more amps to see how they react.


    Signal Chain Guitar Old Japanese LP EMG 81/81 -> SD1 -> AMP

    And my gate was going bananas because the SD1 was with the gain knob at 10 o'clock.

    yes, the EVH 2x12 came with the G12H anniversary. I really dig how these speakers from the evh combos sounded. it was cheap as hell. I paid like 90usd for the pair.

    Really no idea. It was being sold on mercadolibre (local ebay). I really doubt the FMIC factory here would allow such things. I´ve been living here for two years now, until now I haven´t heard about fender mexico factory being stolen.

    In a matter of fact I´ve sent my CV to FMIC several times, I´m fucking tired of Oil & Gas.
