Born out of need and intuition, the TOOB ultra-portable speaker cabinets for guitar, bass and other musical instruments are on the march. From their home base in Finland, they are spreading all over the world.
Launched in 2017, our 12J and 12R guitar Originals foresaw the megatrend towards lighter musical equipment. A bass version, 12B, soon followed. These are still the world's lightest for the caliber, by a substantial margin.
The clever basic design has lent itself to several further variations, including Telescopic, 10” and one-off Custom cabinets.
Hearing the prayers of urban working musicians, we went on to create the public transit compatible, yet stageworthy METRO 6.5” line.
Another TOOB revolution – cute but not quiet!
Next, we returned to original-caliber enclosures and gave them back panels with felt-lined sound ports, a key METRO innovation. The refined S (for Studio) series lands tonally right between the guitar originals.
Countless prototypes (not all the frogs you kiss turn into princes) and hundreds of finished products have emerged from our small workshop outside Helsinki. This could not have happened without vision, commitment and – importantly – an incredible pool of talent and skills patiently contributing to the project.
