A perfect complement for blues rock guitarists.
The Friedman Dirty Shirley 1x12EXT is a 1x12”, open-back extension cabinet. It utilizes tongue-and-groove Baltic Birch construction to deliver the bass, mid response and great sound you would expect from a Friedman cab.
At the heart of the cab is a Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 16 Ohm speaker. The G12M Greenback is the definitive vintage Celestion ceramic magnet guitar speaker. When the G12M was developed in the mid-‘60s, players like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page, who typified the louder and more aggressive blues rock-playing styles that came to characterize that era, quickly adopted it.
The G12M-65 Creamback used in the Dirty Shirley cab produces the familiar woody G12M tone, but handles greater power. This makes it ideally suited for yesterday and today's amps, when a vintage and modern tone is desired. The increased power handling brings with it low-end grunt complementing the warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper-mids and sweet, refined highs.
As with all Friedman cabinets, oversized 12-gauge speaker wire is soldered between the speaker and terminal, assuring you capture every ounce of valuable tone. The Dirty Shirley 1x12EXT is handcrafted with pride in the USA and designed to withstand the rigors of the road.
