Well-rounded sound via 2 x 12" Celestion V30s and a closed back, rear ported design.
The Friedman EXT 2x12 is a rear-ported 2x12”, closed-back extension cabinet, utilizing tung-and-groove Baltic Birch construction and delivers the bass, mid response and great sound you would expect from a 2x12” cab. What you wouldn’t expect is how huge this 2x12” sounds.
At the heart of the cab are two Celestion V30s. The Vintage 30 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. Used to reveal the complexities in hand-wired boutique amps this speaker delivers a wonderfully intricate vintage 3D crunch.
The power and thump of the V30s creating a very formidable speaker cabinet that is a perfect choice for any Friedman amplifier.
As with all Friedman cabinets, oversized 12-gauge speaker wire is soldered between the speaker and terminal, assuring you to get every ounce of valuable tone. The Friedman EXT 2x12 is handcrafted with pride in the USA and designed to withstand the rigors of the road.
For many guitarists, the name Dave Friedman does not have the cachet of, say, Eddie Van Halen, Steve Stevens or Jerry Cantrell. Yet without Friedman’s helping hand these players, as well as a host of countless other guitar heroes, wouldn’t sound as amazing as they do onstage and in the studio.
Dave Friedman has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for some of the world’s biggest stars for the past 25 years. Friedman’s innovative designs have made him legendary in the world of professional touring musicians and the meticulous construction of his Rack Systems gear has earned him a loyal clientele from all over the world.
One of Friedman’s services has been to modify amps to each player’s specific tonal pallet and to consult for other established amplifier companies with their own designs. Friedman’s extensive experience in this area inspired Dave to develop a brand-new series of production amplifiers under Friedman Amplification. In the past, having Friedman build or mod your amp required a certain level of notoriety, but now his sonic wizardry is available to everyday players.
Each Friedman amplifier is handwired right here in the USA using only ultra high-grade components. With 25 years of experience in fixing amps, Dave has learned all the pitfalls other companies may have over looked, none of which are in a Friedman amp. It is for this reason Friedman amps are designed and built to last a lifetime.
