When you want a vintage look and sound with modern standards for build quality, Fargen is a name that deserves your attention. This boutique manufacturer has made a huge impact since exploding onto the music scene over 15 years ago. With guitar amplifier cabinet designs inspired by the classics, stepping into the Fargen booth at a NAMM convention is something like walking into a time machine to the 1950s, '60s and '70s. Founded in 1998, Fargen Amps is somewhat of a rookie in the amplifier and cabinet game. Don't let that deter you, though - what Fargen lacks in tenure, it makes up for in expertise. The mastermind of this company is Ben Fargen, a musician who refuses to settle for second best. That's why he started building his own hardware, and his work has made him a favorite tech for guitar heroes like Steve Vai and Joe Satriani.
To kick off your search for the perfect Fargen cabinet, you might start with the AC Duo-tone series. These cabinets were originally designed to create the perfect voice for Fargen's Brit-inspired AC Duo-tone amp heads. To get there, Fargen takes advantage of the rich, harmonic output of Warehouse Green Beret speakers. Available in 1x12 and 2x12 configurations, these cabinets use a semi-open birch enclosure to deliver incredibly balanced tone.
You'll also find a Warehouse speaker in the Townhouse cabinet, specifically, a Warehouse Reaper pushing 8 ohms at up to 30W of power. That makes the Townhouse a versatile cabinet that sounds great even at lower volumes so you can practice without rattling the neighbors' windows. It's also a perfect partner for Fargen's Townhouse amp head.
The AC Duo-tone and Townhouse are only a start in the collection of impressive Fargen guitar amp cabinets. The right one for you is a matter of preference and consideration, but one thing you can count on with any of these cabinets is the boutique-quality craftsmanship for which the Fargen name is renowned.
