This is our Avatar Signature 212 guitar speaker cabinet. We took our 212 Contemporary and redesigned the faceboard. It is now a sleeker front frame, featuring a roundover on the inside edge. It has the stylish thick edge look to it with piping around the grill. The construction is all voidless Birch Plywood and it features black tolex, black grill cloth and white piping.
-New sleeker outer edge with inside roundover
-New Avatar Logo
-Same dimensions as G212 Contemporary
With the closed back panel, you get a very focused sound coming off of the front of the speaker cones but with a strong bass.
With the oval open back panel, you get plenty of mids coming off of the back of the cones and radiating out into the room. You can also get the closed back conversion board to close up the open back from the inside. It is an additional $15 dollars.
This deluxe cab has two recessed round metal bar handles and a rear metal jack plate with dual 1/4 inch jacks for daisy chaining with other cabs.
The two 12’s are rear loaded with T Nuts which makes it easy to swap out speakers for tone experimenting. We have many choices of quality Celestion guitar speakers to fit your precise tone preferences. Please go to Celestion.com to read about or to listen to sound samples to help you decide which are best for your playing style and TONE requirements.
It has been our experience that some of the favorite speaker combinations are two industry standard Celestion Vintage 30’s for Superb high power tone and for the widest variety of music styles and for a great deal of presence to really cut through the mix in a 120 watt cab.
One Celestion Vintage 30 and one G12H30 for a slightly deeper, warmer sounding tone as a 60 watt cab, or two Celestion G12H30s for a real rich, sweeter overdrive tone at 60 watts.

-Ascension F70 Awarded GuitarPlayer magazine’s Editor’s Pick in 2016!
The 12-inch, 70 watt, ceramic magnet Ascension F70 represents the evolution of a classic tone guitar speaker for players looking for a fresh point of reference. Promising to be the new most talked about speaker in a generation with its unique ability to enhance the performance of clean low gain amplifiers and high gain shred machines alike.

The beauty of the F70 is that you need not even change your amplifier’s setting to appreciate its ability to articulate delicate passages or manage pummeling abuse with ease. Whether your application is a head and cab or an open back combo, the F70 most definitely adds a welcome new dimension to existing rigs.

The A60 is a 12-inch, 60 watt, Classic Alnico driver.

-Ascension F25 Awarded GuitarPlayer magazine’s Editor’s Pick in October 2022
The Ascension F25 is a low wattage, 25 watt, ceramic magnet, guitar speaker with an emphasis on crunch and mid-range presence. A well-balanced driver, equally suited to classic rock sounds as it is jazz, heavy metal or punk.
The F25’s tonal character possesses a detailed, yet reduced, top-end that paves the way for a super-satisfying mid punch to chords and cut-through lead tones without being too sharp or shrill. Clean tones are warm, detailed and not overly bright.
The F25 is great for low powered amps but really comes alive when used with high powered amps in 4×12 configurations or valve amps pushed into overdrive. The unit is also lighter than our Ascension F70 or F90.

Cutting through the mix with an attacking upper mid-range and a forward, rich and open, alnico-like, detailed top end. When played clean, tones are detailed and articulate.
