Dr Bonkers Guitar Cab-Oddities™ Volume 3: FALKO 1X10 Guitar Cabinet IR Collection
Dr Bonkers presents the Dr Bonkers Guitar Cab-Oddities™ Volume 3: FALKO 1X10 Guitar Cabinet IR Collection based upon a 2015 Tone King® Falcon™ 1 X 10 Guitar Amp Cabinet. This cabinet included the original 1X10 Eminence® Patriot™ Ragin’ Cajun™ speaker.
Tone King® was founded in 1993 and has been making guitar amp combos in Baltimore, Maryland, USA for many years using classic F-Type vintage amp designs as inspiration. The styling of the cabinet is akin to a 1960’s era television cabinet, but the combo sounds pretty righteous. There is something about the speaker being placed off-center in that dimension of cab along with the speaker diffuser in front of the combo to prevent beaming that makes this cab sound very special. Impulse responses made with this cab can really sound great with many different types of digital amp models, even bass amp models. I tried to find an amp model that hated this cab and I could not find an amp model to fight with these impulse response (IR) files except at extreme gain and EQ settings.
Dr Bonkers impulse response file tribute to this cab is featured in both Fractal Audio Systems® file format, WAV format, and a buy both bundle.
Please check the documentation of your Yamaha® THR-100™, Kemper® KPA™ (Kemper Profiler Amp), Line 6® Helix™, Two Notes® Torpedo™, Digitech® GSP 1101™, Atomic Amps® Amplifire™, NuX® Cerberus™, AMT® Pangaea CP-100™, Positive Grid® Bias™, or other hardware or software based Impulse Response (IR) loader to see which WAV file format is correct to use.
