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 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 a mere 450 g/1 lb, we can dress up a 12R in Tolex, genuine Lacquered Tweed or many other options, even your own imagery. Custom painted rims also an option. Visit the Gallery for samples already realized. 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.
Want 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!
