Historical Info (Click Here)

Birthed in 1969, this was the type of cabs that Bill, Keith, & Mick used when their classic American amps went into meltdown mode because of a UK/US voltage mismatch before a major tour. It was the first bass product that so very much concerned its engineers regarding the dB SPL that the amp and cab combination could produce, they came with labels that warned about use of this product potentially leading to permanent hearing loss. With this tribute impulse response (IR) file pack, you can get all the glorious tones of those cabs without having to worry about deafening yourself or a trip to a chiropractor!
