The TONEWEDGE is a speaker cabinet designed for guitar. These lightweight cabinets have the tone of a 4x12 and can be placed wherever "more guitar" is needed. With their tilt back design, they can be placed in front of or behind the player. The TONEWEDGE can be used with any guitar amp and any genre. Making them the perfect extension cabinet. Or, use a TONEWEDGE as your only cabinet.
The "patent applied for" baffle has a built in difuser to block harmful high end frequencies from reaching your ears. This doesn't compromise tone what-so-ever. It only minimizes ear fatigue and not being able to hear at the end of the night. That "ice pick" in the ear sound that gets old half way through the first set is no longer an issue!
Each Tonewedge cabinet is hand made in the USA with premium components such as Baltic birch plywood, Penn Elcom hardware and switchcraft jacks.
The wedge shape places the speaker cone directly facing the player. Much like a vocal monitor. This design enables the player to hear him/herself better without being too loud. This keeps the player happy. This also keeps the sound guy happy by not blazing the guitar straight at him. He can now mic the cabinet and have full control over the front of the house mix. If you prefer a more traditional setup, then the TONEWEDGE can be placed behind the player like a traditional speaker cabinet or combo. The 60 degree angle aims the sound directly at the back of the players' head. A far cry from the backs of their knees. like traditional amps.
All the frequencies are there, and then some! The port on the TONEWEDGE is what makes this desgn what it is. In the 30 degree position, the port acts to increase low end. Giving the cabinet a much larger feel. More like a sealed 4x12 cabinet. In the 60 degree position, the cabinet acts more like an open back cabinet with the port helping to throw and disburse your tone to fill the room.
This cabinet has attitude. As you feed it more volume, the cab begins to blossom with rich low end. The low end is tight, in spite of it being ported. No mud. The difuser does a great job of taming any harsh high end. And the mid-range is rich and smooth. Of course, this can all be tweaked by using a different speaker for the tone you're looking for.
