The 35XC replacement speaker is built using tried-and-tested materials and construction methods, and incorporates several new design features and techniques. Drawing on 90 years' experience, Celestion has been able to create a uniquely versatile speaker whose attributes will be familiar to those who know Pulsonic coned speakers.
Capable of delivering open and musical cleans without sacrificing an immensely satisfying crunch or searing, overdriven lead lines, the 35XC is made to engage your musical soul. This speaker exhibits poise, tonal evenness and freedom from souring colorations, characteristics typical of speakers with Pulsonic cones, as well as adding a little more sparkle and air to your sound.
A 90th anniversary gift from Celestion to players who won't compromise in their search for great tone.
Reviews From Buyers
The speaker at this stage admittedly has one hour on it in a Budda closed back 2X12 cab powered by a Budda Superdrive 30 Series II. Compared to the stock speaker, this takes care of the harsh mids I was experiencing and replaces it with a very signature Celestion frequency response. The bass is a little light, but I expect that this is the stiffness of the speaker just out of the box and will sort itself out. Based on the initial experience, I expect this to be more in vintage 30 territory. The place where this speaker really wins me over is the highs. There is this tasty detail to it that I haven't had before, and overdriving the speaker doesn't mush out in the same way as the stock. The midrange keeps some of the detail and molds into that celestion "shape" when pushed, while there isn't a harshness like a V30 as you go up in frequency - it just starts singing. I'm loving it so far, and will update as things unfold.
