  • Anyone ever bought speakers (not in a cabinet) from Avatar?

    They say they sell Celestions, and they say they say Hellatones which are broken-in Celestions.



    So do they sell actual NEW Celestions? I was quoted a price of $349 for 4 Vintage 30s or g12Hs. Was that probably a Hellatone quote, or new Celestions quote, or what?



    Thanks.

    I bought a quad of Hellatone 60Ls and a quad of K100s from Avatar at separate times. Both were brand new. Excellent prices, quick turnaround. No bull**************** when dealing with Dave@Avatar. It's all legit.

      Never dealt with them, but have heard enough good things to not worry about them one bit, and whatever he quoted was for new. The Hellatone are new when they get them. They just exercise the speaker and put their label on them.

        I'm positive the quote was for the speakers stated.

        Avatar gets great discounts...they buy by the container.

          If they were selling imitations as the actual thing, do you think they's stay in business this long?

            I bought a pair of V30s (not Hellatones) from them. Good stuff.

              I didn't think they'd be selling imitations, but I wonder if they were selling Celestions with the Celestion label, or Celestions with the Hellatone label (which ARE actually Celestions, so no imitations here at all).

              I got my answer, thanks guys. Merry Christmas.

                    I bought a 4x10 bass cab and new 15's for my other bass cab from Avatar. No issues at all other than the corner pieces on the 4x10 cracked because they were not screwed on quite right.

                        I've bought several raw Celestions from them and always got just what I bought. Great guys, great prices.

                            I bought a set of 4 Hellatone 60L's from them quite a while ago and had no issue at all. Dave is good people.
