Overview

The Friedman 412 Checked 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.

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 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 the Friedman Butterslax amplifier.

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.
