    While at the Dallas Guitar Show yesterday, I got a chance to hear the new Skjold cabs. He had with him the 2x10 and 1x15, but will also be doing a 2x12. Both cabs featured some sort of mid-range driver, a 6 inch I think. The 2x10 was nice, but the 1x15 was quite excellent. I heard a few different players play through them, including Pete himself. The 1x15 is nice and compact and Pete says the weight isn't too bad, but I didn't get the chance to pick it up.

    He said they would all be available in 4 or 8 ohms and they are using Emminence drivers. I am anxious to get up to the workshop and run my Thunderfunk through the 1x15 with one of my Bongos. They are also pretty cool looking with a burgundy/wine baffle(?) around the speakers and a cool Skjold logo in his usual pearl/abalone way.

    Oh, and the basses aren't bad either.

    I did a short review of these cabs on the skjoldplayers.com web site. Pete's got another killer product on his hands. First his basses, then his pre-amp, now his cabs!
    They're really well built and sound great. They're going to be very competatively priced too. I'm looking forward to the Neo 2x12 that's in the works.
