Going for Gold, New Studio 7 Guitar Cabinets Feature Celestion Vintage 30 Drivers

Founded in 1924, Celestion has grown to become one of the worlds largest and most innovative manufacturers of loudspeakers and can now be found in Studio 7's stunning new guitar cabinets.

Celestion was responsible for the first ever dedicated guitar speaker and have since developed into the one of the most recognizable names in drivers. "It's like the Olympics of guitar cabinets, you have this bright young beautifully constructed Studio 7 cabinet and inside you find a speaker that is associated with some of music's most memorable performances like Hendrix and Slash," smiles Mike Lewis President of, "and together it's gold."

Seemingly twice as loud as anything else at the same power level, the Vintage 30 handles massive overdrive sounds with ease. The vintage 30 handles extra heat when operating with higher power equipment, designed with a new coil assembly and modern materials, complimenting the powerful tube amplifiers Studio 7 is known for producing. Tight bass, fat mids and a smooth, yet harmonically rich top end have made the Vintage 30 an excellent 4 x 12 or 2 x 12 loudspeaker.

The new Studio 7 guitar cabinets are available in a variety of combinations, the S7212C a 2 x 12 cabinet, and S7412C a 4 x 12 model cabinet stands out providing exquisite tonal variations for players of any musical style. Both models feature low-resonance wooden enclosures covered by a uniquely designed tough tolex cover and high density grill cloth sporting classic styling with a rock'n'roll edge. The Studio 7 S212C and S7412C deliver enormously detailed, complex overtones, with that vintage crunch and are available exclusively at

Mackie Speakers Go Around the World in Eight Days with Windfield Productions

Denver, CO - For Dano Goforth’s Windfield Productions, there’s no such thing as a typical
show. The Denver-based company handles everything from corporate events and
seminars to festivals and religious occasions. And on any given day you may find Goforth
loading his Mackie systems into a C-17 military jet for a USO tour in the Middle East.
“We’ve been using Mackie gear for years, on tours all over the world,” says Goforth. “I’m
a fan of the SRM450s – we’ve used them since the beginning of the wars in Afghanistan
and Iraq, on everyone from Toby Keith to Joan Jett, and they’ve been great workhorses
under some pretty brutal conditions.”
Oklahoma country music superstar Toby Keith talks with Quartermaster Seaman John Mendez while touring the bridge of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72). Keith is on his 10th tour with the United Services Organization, performing for deployed service members around the world. Lincoln is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility conducting maritime security operations, theater security cooperation efforts and support missions as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Goforth recently upgraded Windfield’s inventory to include Mackie’s HD1221
loudspeakers. “We use the 1221s on pretty much everything,” says Goforth. “It’s an
incredibly versatile box. I’ve used them for mains, for monitors, for side fills, all kinds of
stuff. We’re also using the new HD1501 and 1801 subwoofers. They sound great and
they’ve proven to be exceptionally durable. That’s important for the kind of tours we

As Goforth points out, “portability” takes on a different perspective on military tours.
“Loading in and out of Blackhawks, C-130s or C-17s, a lot of times space is at a real
premium,” he says. “The gear has to be compact, easy to handle, and able to take a
beating and work in all kinds of climates and conditions.”
Some tours include additional shows on even smaller transport. “On some of these
outpost tours, we’ll do a big show one night and then take a smaller system – just a
couple of our SRM450 boxes on sticks, and the same thing for monitors – and do shows at
one or two smaller forward operating bases,” says Goforth.

The shows present a wide range of performers, and the HD’s versatility has already
proven itself. “The last tour went around the world in eight days with Kix Brooks, Robin
Williams, Louis Black and Lance Armstrong,” says Goforth. “That was the first tour we used
the HDs on, and everyone really loved them.” “I stick with Mackie gear because it’s compact, reliable and sounds great. And the stuff holds up in a war zone – what more can you ask?”
