OVERVIEW

A heavy-duty cab with a legendary speaker combination.

The Friedman Vintage 4x12 is a 4x12", closed-back speaker cabinet which utilizes tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction to deliver the bass, mid response and great sound you would expect from a Friedman cab. The vintage salt and pepper grille cloth is reminiscent of the legendary British amps of yesteryear.

At the heart of the cab are two 16 Ohm, Celestion G12M-25 Greenback speakers placed strategically in the top two speaker slots of the cabinet. The G12M Greenback has evolved over the decades but still retains its essential sought-after tone. This model is voiced with additional broad mid-range attack and restrained top-end, giving a forward, punchy attitude to chords and a searing lead tone without fizz: ideal for Friedman's high-powered rock heads. It's an ideal speaker to bring drive and definition to modern high-gain amps.

Loaded in the two bottom slots are two Celestion Vintage 30 speakers. The V30's sound has been captured on thousands of recordings from a diverse range of notable
players. It features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low-end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top-end. This cab delivers a wonderfully intricate Vintage 30 crunch, revealing the complexities found in hand-wired boutique amps.

The combination of these two different speaker models provides the warmth of the Greenbacks and the power and thump of the V30s, creating a formidable speaker cabinet that is a perfect match for any Friedman 100-watt head.

As with all Friedman cabinets, oversized 12-gauge speaker wire is soldered between the speaker and terminal, assuring that you capture every ounce of valuable tone. The BE 4x12 is handcrafted with pride in the U.S.A. and designed to withstand the rigors of the road.

Handwired in the USA.

Comments about Friedman Vintage 4x12 Celestion Greenback/Vintage 30 Loaded Speaker Cab:

Ive owned every Marshall Cab and Mesa cab out there. Including some 70,s Marshall cabs. And this cab is great it covers alot of different sounds with the Greenbacks and Vintage 30,s from classic rock to modern. Ive have since sold and are selling all my other cabs! Perfect match for any Head covering these styles of music. And a perfect match for my BE-100..

    Comments about Friedman Vintage 4x12 Celestion Greenback/Vintage 30 Loaded Speaker Cab:

    Have to say it take a little while to break-in this cab, but after about 5-10 hours at volume, it sounds so much better! It's the best cab hands down for my Friedman Brown Eye head. I tried similar cabs with same speaker setup and still couldn't get the tone from other 4x12's as I did with the Friedman 4x12. My demo room was Nashville's GC Platnium room against some of the best new and vintage cabs. Also between my other 3 stacks, the Friedman is THE most solid on the ground, like a rock!! Best 4x12 cab for any "Marshall" style amp especially with Friedman amps. They just melt together perfect. Dave Friedman as hit a home-run on his amps and cab matching.

    I bought this together with Jerry Cantrell Signature 100W Hand Wired Tube Guitar Head and it is the perfect match. I can send any tone through it and its nice and clear from blues to jazz to rock. This is like nothing you have heard before I highly recommend this before buying anything else.
