The 12” Green Beret™ guitar speaker brings crunchy cone breakup, growling bass, great headroom, and aggressive mids together better than any other 25-watt speaker. Upgrade for Celestion™ G12M Greenback™.
Its like getting a brand new amp that sounds like I imagined my sound.
I still don’t understand why anyone would buy a Chinese made Celestion with inferior tone, cheap components, and the worst workmanship on earth (unless you are talking about viruses). WGS speakers are certainly superior to Celestion. I usually buy Weber speakers, but for a stock speaker, not made to order like Weber, this green back clone nails “THAT” tone, you know the one I mean!! I’ll be back for more!

Review of Toby S. on Feb 9, 2019 on 12" Green Beret - 25 watts
How to turn a sad bass combo into a born-again guitar slugger in one easy step! Adding the Green Beret to my poor old Musicmaster Bass produced a transformation that is staggering. Bigger, louder, ballsier. The crunch is delicious. Terrific value for the price.
Review of Donna on 12" Green Beret - 25 watts
Dropped one of these in my Marshall Silver Jubilee & the amp came alive!! No more muddy tone.
This speaker is clearer, louder & produces a much more pleasant overdrive than the original Celestion Greenback.
Review of Ed Byrnes on 12" Green Beret - 25 watts
I combined a Green Beret with a Reaper 55 in a 2x12 cab and the sound it incredible. Amazing chunky lows, mids that chime through and enough highs for clarity without any ice pickiness. Right out of the box, these sounded awesome! The perfect pairing.

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.
