Like many of you, I was always on the lookout for a light cab that was loud and looked as great as it sounded. I stumbled onto E&M, which is a small custom pro audio workshop out of California that is beginning to make some very serious custom bass cabs. I visited their shop and spoke with them for hours and they explained to me their philosophy on speakers and cabs and all of the engineering that goes into each one of their products.
These cabs are handmade from solid California redwood, you can specify the drivers/ohms/power handling that you want (they can make some great recommendations as well), their neo loaded 1x12 weighs 25lbs (not a typo), sounds unbelievable, it can put out some serious volume, turn around time is 2-3 weeks if you want something not in stock, price range for a 1x12 is around $400 and for a 2x10 is $500 (a steal IMO for these one-of-a-kind cabs).
They're so new in the bass cab game that they don't have a website yet, but if you'd like to get in touch with them, you can contact Natalia at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I usually don't get this excited about a piece of gear, but these cabs really are unique.
