Several one-off versions available
It's been quiet on the front. Instead of shuttering the works and poring over classic literature or jigsaw puzzles, we have stuck to the knitting, i.e. building TOOBs. The result: a 10T open-back with new construction and several voicing options; a felt-ported, velvety-voiced 12T, and a 6.5GT mighty midget with 130W power handling from a package just 145 mm / 5 3/4"deep when collapsed and weighing a mere 1.8 kg / 4.0 lbs. Up for grabs is also a standard 10T, as well as a "Spartan/Sport" 10S with a wire leg and labor-saving design details borrowed from the Metros. Priced accordingly. ASK!

OFFER OF THE MONTH!
June celebrates a new amp!
Quilter SuperBlocks are here, and we have tested them! As far as we know, this is the first good-sounding micro amp with a built-in reverb. 25W of tube equivalent power is enough for club gigs. Available in US and UK versions, the SuperBlock is a perfect physical fit to all our guitar cabs, and really makes the basic Metro 6.5BG shine. We have a few of those on the shelf, yours for EUR 199 (EU) and EUR 160 (non-EU) plus shipping. SuperBlocks are available e.g. from Thomann, at a very reasonable price. ASK!
New dealer in Estonia!
Drop-D Sounds in Tallin has a 12S and a 6.5BG+ in store, and will be able to deliver other models on very short notice. After all, Tallinn is just across the ”river”; its lights can be seen from Helsinki.
All models available for immediate delivery!
Our workshop has not been locked down – rather, it’s been Markku’s de facto quarantine extension. Consequently, TOOB 10-12S, 12J, R and B, as well as METRO 6.5GP, BG and FR are all available from the shelf. Cinnamon versions will be delivered with black rims. For once, we also have time to build Custom versions with Tolex or Tweed cladding. ASK!
Quilter SuperBlock amps: Is This the Future?
Quilter Labs from Costa Mesa, CA, has come up with a concept we have been begging for all these years: a micro-amp with on-board reverb. The new Quilter SuperBlock amps actually feature a lot more. We have yet to test them, but with what they offer on paper and first demos, it's hard to maintain neutrality and a stone face.
Blackbirds are in!
This new speaker really sings when housed in a 12J or 12S. It is also louder than its 96dB sensitivity would suggest, thanks to being extremely articulate. The same shipment also replenishes our stock of the SICA 6L 1,5SL speakers used in the popular METRO 6.5BG and 6.5GP+ models.
