New resellers in key locations!
2023 has taken off very favorably. Not only have we experienced further growth in unit sales. There's actually two new resellers in very important locations:

As previously noted, legendary jazz guitars specialist Guitars 'n Jazz in Summit, NJ, is our first dealership in North America. With the relocation of their showroom complete, Lou Del Rosso and his associates have now listed our Metros and placed a further order that keeps us happy - and busy.

(Showroom by appointment only)

Hong Kong and Taiwan:
A surprise contact from Hong Kong led from 0 to 100 in just a few weeks. Yuu Soundojo run by Aiden Koon is a small and nimble operation that performs and teaches music, as well as sells music equipment in HK and Taiwan. Having passed the Henriksen amp franchise to broader shoulders, Aiden focused on Metros and ordered six for starters.

How to get it for less?
A) As a performing artist or full-time music student, you may be entitled to a substantial discount, subject to our discretion. Almost no strings attached. Check our Policies and Principles section.

B) From time to time, there will be an Offer of the Month featured on this page.

C) We often have a few prototypes and other one-offs on hand.  

D) Reluctantly, we have shipped a few 10" and 12" TOOBs unloaded to people willing - and able - to install their own speaker. The price drop is typically EUR 100/90 (EU/non-EU) for guitar models and EUR 120/110 for bass models. If you can assemble Ikea furniture, you already have a 5 mm hex key, the only tool required.


Playing with an upright cab
Our 12J, 10B, 12B and 6.5BG+ models, as well as most telescopic versions, come with removable UpBeat legs for playing in the vertical position. While we were aware of Johnny Smith's "Fountain of Sound", a huge 1957 Ampeg amp tilted on its back, we consider the upright legs another Toob innovation.

Why upright? The concept makes the cab more omnidirectional: you hear yourself better, the band hears you better, and nobody in the audience is on the fire line. Works best if there's a reflecting ceiling above - 3-5 m (10'-16') seems ideal.

For double bass players, the solution raises the speaker closer to the instrument's sound holes and allows the acoustic and electric sound to blend harmoniously. For guitar, applications range from orchestra pit work and big band comping to enhancing acoustic instruments and playing jazz in intimate situations.

News of the month
SICA speaker shipment is in!
We have received our largest speaker shipment ever: 50 SICA 6L 1.5 speakers used on the Metro 6.5 GP+ and BG/BG+ units.

Many of those are already earmarked to  our main resellers in Europe (Customs Sounds in Finland, Liberty-Music in Germany, Lightweightguitaramps in Hungary, Guitars N'Jazz in USA and Yuu Soundojo in Hong Kong). It would be unfair to undercut their prices in direct commerce. They also have better return policies than what we can offer.

Nevertheless, don't hesitate to get in touch with any special needs. We're making one-off and Custom versions to order all the time.

On our shipping arrangements
Not all eggs in the same basket. We're using Shipit, a Finnish company which has wholesale agreements with several service-providers. Based on the recipient's postal code, we get a current listing of alternatives whenever a quote is needed. By and large, it's UPS for the Americas, UPS or GLS for Continental Europe, UPS for UK and Norway, Finnish Post for Sweden and Denmark, and UPS or Finnish Post for Asia-Pacific. For intercontinental deliveries, we strongly recommend the UPS Super Saver option.
