NEW! Something for the modeling amp crowd - and steel guitars
What do you need for the amp-in-the room feeling using modeling amps? A power amp and a FRFR speaker. If our 130W Metro 6.5FR is not enough, TOOB 12D surely is. The latter sports Jensen's 150W N12D speaker, which also works well for pedal and lap steel guitars.
Which amp? Anything with enough clean headroom. For Metro 6.5FR, Mooer Baby Bomb is a proven alternative. For the TOOB 12D, consider e.g. Seymour Duncan's power amps or any small Class D bass amp such as the TC Electronic BAM200. Many other micro-amps will fit the bill.
We have just taken in a shipment of the above FRFR speakers. Act soon to secure yours!

There's been a lot of positive feedback lately. Here's a few samples:
"Thanks for making the best cabs in the world" - Guitarist Cristian Uribe, Ohio (6.5BG and 12J+)
"I played a bit using Toob speaker last night, it sounded very good. The sound is very clear and distinct with great frequency response and also dispersed sound - fills the entire room" - Guitarist John Abraham, New Jersey (12J+)
"Posted a pic and talk to people on Facebook on a page for Danish guitarists with 14K members" - Guitarist Mogens Fosgerau, Copenhagen (12J+)
"All I have to say is they have exceeded my expectations" - Harpist Jarred Goldweber, Ohio (6.5BG and 6.5FR)
"Hi Markku! Really appreciate you rapidly shipping the speaker. I just received it and it's fantastic! It sounds great and is so light." - Guitarist Alejandro Castro, Bronx (12S BlackBird + Tilta cradle)
"Hi Markku, my Toob has arrived. I knew it would be fine when I saw the courier walking to my door carrying it one hand! ... It does exactly what it is intended to do." - Bassist Megan Smith, Kent, UK (12B)
So far direct feedback from my colleagues has been very positive - both my go-to drummers were impressed by the sound and form factor." Guitarist-bassist Mario Neundorf, Hamburg (2 x 6.5BG+)
"Just a few words to let you know that my Warwick upright electric bass finally arrived... At all levels, the [BAM 200 / Metro 6.5] sound is very full, much more so than on my violin bass. A nice range of rich low end with plenty of response in the higher register - the Metro handled it all superbly." Guitarist-bassist Raymond Naylor, Paris (BG)
"The Toob cab is extraordinarily portable without sacrificing sound quality. An essential accessory for any gigging bass player who is constantly on the move!"
Bassist Kaisa Mäensivu, Helsinki / New York (12BT)

Quilter SuperBlock amps: the future is on!
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. Our own testing confirms what many others have discovered: this is a real-world take on a dream come through. Our sales are up already, and inquiries keep pouring in.
Blackbirds are in - soon out of stock!
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 replenished our stock of the SICA 6L 1,5SL speakers used in the popular METRO 6.5BG and 6.5GP+ models.
