12" ET65 - 65 Watts

12" ET65 - 65 Watts


The ET65's creamy lows blend with tight midrange and sparkling highs for some of the best tones ever created. This speaker is for classic rock, country, and blues. Upgrade from your Celestion™ G12-65.

Possibly the best WGS speaker combination we can recommend is the ET65 paired with a Veteran 30™. Your cabinet will sound more full and colorful than you ever imagined. If you are putting together a 4x12 cab, we suggest either an "X" pattern or the ET65s on top of the Veteran 30's.

Wgs et65

Highly recommended all around speaker. Balanced highs mids and bass for cleans and overdrive. My favorite speaker for combos or 1x12 cabs.

Great speaker for my Dr Z Maz 38

Great classic rock/blues tones.

Roger Eaton

The ET-65 has become my (Go To) speaker of choice for all around great balanced tone for pretty much any musical situation I might find myself in.
I also use the Vet 30 for different applications. Both are a GREAT option for me.
Thank you WGS for making great products in the USA that are 2nd to none !

Sergio Espinoza
Just what my amp needed

I bought this speaker paired with the veteran 30 and it has absolutely brought my amp back to life. Perfect for smoothing out my cleans and they definitely handle high gain tones well

Lew Jetton

Lew Jetton

Lew Jetton learned The Blues the old fashioned way, in the cotton fields of his native West Tennessee in the 60s and 70s. Along the way, he had two of the best mentors one could have: In the 80s, the legendary Carl Perkins, and in the 90s, the one and only Chicago Blues Legend, Snooky Pryor. Lew Jetton is indeed, the real deal.

Palestine Blues, the new album from Lew Jetton & 61 South is a personally poignant and sometimes brutal memoir of a 10 year period in Jetton's life which included struggles with alcohol, drugs, depression, joblessness, frustration and a spiritual tug of war. Recorded 3 piece for the most part with just Lew on guitar, with bass and drums, so the essence of the songs could show through. No posing. Just the raw feeling, so you really can feel the frustration, the helplessness, the anger, the sadness, that are a way of life for so many today.

Palestine Blues is the 4th CD from Lew Jetton & 61 South to garner rave reviews as well as worldwide radio airplay, including on BB King's Bluesville on Sirius/XM Radio. Palestine Blues follows on the heels of Lew Jetton & 61 South's 2016 release Rain, which spent more than 6 months of the Roots Music Report's Contemporary Blues Chart, finishing #36 in their year end list of all the Top 200 releases. Over the years, Lew Jetton & 61 South have cemented their reputation on the club and festival circuit with their signature, critically acclaimed, Mississippi River Electric Blues sound.

Man Overboard

Man Overboard

New Jersey-based emo-pop players Man Overboard carry the flame of melodic, energetic, hardcore-influenced Garden State bands like Lifetime and Midtown. Founded in 2008 by childhood friends Nik Bruzzese (vocals/bass) and Wayne Wildrick (guitar), the pair began writing at Bruzzese's studio, bringing Zac Eiestenstein (vocals/guitar) and Justin Mondschein (drums) into the fold to record debut EP Hung Up on Nothing. Signing to Run for Cover the following year, the band offered a second EP, Dahlia. In 2010, Man Overboard fired on all cylinders, releasing the acoustic EP Noise from Upstairs as well as studio album debut Real Talkand a self-released live recording. The band also faced lineup changes that year -- Wildrick left the band for personal reasons and Justin Collier filled in on guitar duty, making way for new drummer Mike Hrycenko -- but came back big by joining the Rise Records roster. By spring 2011, Wildrick rejoined the band, as they recorded a self-titled sophomore album and hit the road on the Pop Punk’s Not Dead tour alongside New Found Glory that fall. Adding to the momentum, Man Overboard, released that September, landed on the Billboard 200, Top Hard Rock Albums, and Top Independent Albums charts. Drummer Joe Talarico replaced Hrycenko for the group's third album, Heart Attack, which was released in 2013 also debuted as #46 on the Billboard 200 and #7 on the Independent Record label charts. The band has toured relentlessly, doing The Vans Warped Tour 2 years in a row, Russia, UK, Europe, Canada, and gearing up for a major US tour this Fall, along with Warped Australia, SouthEast Asia, Japan, and Hawaii.
