Celestion V Type Speakers
The V-Type has been built using a carefully balanced ‘recipe’ of old and new design techniques. It produces a heady, exciting modern vintage sound that just makes you want to keep on playing: a speaker that delivers authentic Celestion tone whatever your style.
Matamp SL Cabinet
We developed the new SL cabinet range for guitarists who are looking for great three dimensional tone but a lighter setup for when on the road.
The design features a closed lower speaker and an open upper speaker to give the perfect balance of bass, projection and punch without any of the directionality associated with traditional closed back designs.
The new Matamp SL Standard speaker cabinet features a pair of Celestion V-Type speakers, black snakeskin vinyl and Lloydloom speaker cloth. Heavy duty metal handles and the new ‘M’ design front complete the package. The standard cab is built to the same quality as all of our other cabs but does not feature stringing.
The wood used to construct the cabinet is birch faced poplar plywood, using this wood reduces the weight by over 40% without any loss of strength. It is also highly resonant, making for a great sounding cab reminiscent of solid wood designs.
Like all Matamp Cabinets, the 2×12 SL is handmade in our factory in Huddersfield in the UK.
