TOOB Originals

TOOB 12J, 12R and 12B, launched in 2017-2018, constitute the TOOB Originals. Future classics, we bet. Housed in the same 315 mm O/D plastic enclosure, with varying depth and tail end configurations, 10” guitar and bass versions have also been made to order. All come with the handy, magnetic MagLeg as standard. New for 2021, they also feature our proprietary, tonally superior heavy-duty speaker grill.

TOOB Custom Shop

On request, our workshop becomes your Custom Shop. All standard models can be customized with extra features and surface materials to your exact specs. Telescopic 10” and 12” guitar and bass models fitting in carry-on luggage have been developed for the globe-trotting musician. These, too, are made to order only. Some special accessories enhance the versatility of our products.

TOOB Telescopic models

Our unique, telescopic cabinets are now available in several variants. The guitar versions 10T and 12T (Jensen Tornado TR10 or 12/100) as well as the smaller bass version 10BT (Celestion BN10-200X) are just 195 mm (under 8”) deep when collapsed. Weighing 4.2-4.6 kg/9.5-10 lb, they lodge comfortably in a cabin bag. The larger bass version 12BT (Celestion BN12-300S) is 30 mm deeper, still a happy traveling companion in a suitcase or sports bag. Extended, the T models measure and sound the same as our standard 12J and 12B designs. Extending the wooden inner tube gradually, you will discover that the tone responds in a non-linear way. A tuneable speaker cabinet! Removable UpBeat wire legs for vertical playing included. These entirely hand-crafted gems are made to order only. ASK!

TOOB Custom Orders

At a weight penalty of max. 450 g / 1 lbs, we can dress up virtually any TOOB or METRO in Tolex, genuine Lacquered Tweed or more imaginative options. Custom painted rims also available. Visit the Gallery for samples already realized. Non-standard speakers have been installed. ASK!

TILTA, STABBEN, TWOOB and Other Accessories

For players using their speaker cabinet as a personal monitor, we recommend TILTA, a lightweight cradle permitting you to safely incline your TOOB up to 45 degrees and beyond. It is foldable and weighs just 560 g / 1.3 lb. We have also made several one-off stands and tilting devices for the METRO Series, including a double-decker stand for two, for optimal sound dispersion.

STABBEN is a horizontal carbon fiber bar adding stability to 10” and 12” R and S models, attached with hook-and loop fasteners to the rear rim. For the open-back guitar and bass versions, as well as Metro BG+, the UpBeat upright legs double up as extra lateral support.

Need a 2 X 12”? TWOOB is a simple, lightweight plate that bridges over a pair of cabs, attaching to their dock plates and providing a platform for even a large and heavy tube amp.

Need a gigbag for the Originals? We can't beat the Stairville SB-125 of Flyht Gorilla GAC 125 from Thomann. Chances are, you will order your amp from them anyway. Most METRO users are happy to tuck their cab into an ordinary backpack and cycle to the gig and back. ASK!
