Overview

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.

Dave Friedman has been building, modding and repairing amplifiers for many of the world's biggest stars for the past 25 years. Friedman's innovative designs and meticulous construction have made him legendary in the world of professional touring musicians while earning him a loyal clientele from all over the world.

Dave Friedman's extensive knowledge and pursuit of tonal superiority inspired him to develop his own series of production amplifiers under the name Friedman Amplification.

      This is my second Vintage Friedman 4x12 cab, you might think I really liked the first one, you would be right. Looks great, sounds amazing through my Dirty Shirley, solid as can be and has rubber feet.

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

        This is the best cabinet I've ever heard, the Greenbacks with the vintage 30's are a great match. The quality is top notch, the grill is not salt and pepper, It's a cream color but it changes with light. Could look white, cream, yellow or light green but it mostly looks cream to me. It's actually an amazing grill, very 3D and very vintage looking, I have this paired with a Dirty Shirley and wow is all I can say. Tone search is over.

        Use this cab with the H&K Mark II Tri-Amp. The richest tone I have ever had the pleasure to own.
