Schroeder 1515L, awesome!!!!

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by caesarbass, Sep 17, 2008.

  1. Just played my new 1515L last weekend and it absolutely killed!! Great bottom end, pseudo old-school tone and really PUNCHY!! I used it at Disneyland on the outside stage that comes up out of the ground, it really sounded big!! I didn't miss the horn at all, Jorg's using some really quick 15's, they respond like 12's, but push some air!!
    I will be using the cab again this weekend with my p-bass and give a report then too. So far this cab is incredible and I can't wait to stack my 1212L on top of it. So far this is my new favorite cab to use with my LMII!!!! :D
  2. oh wow....

    that looks amazing

    :crying:Aww.:crying: I wanted to be the first kid on the block with one of those!:crying:

    Seriously. Did it live up to your expectations? Have you played it at any other venues/situation?
  4. Thanks guys!! I love this little giant alot!! I'm sure the more gigs I do with it I will get to know it better and better, but so far it's been great!! Very simple, two 15's and no horn, and BIG sound!! i really wanted something to compliment my 1212L, but at the same time I wanted a kind-of old school cab to pump my P-bass through, I am very stoked with what Jorg's done!!! I will keep up on the reviews. :D

    I wonder if Jorg would do a tweeter on this cab if you asked. I don't know that I would want one without it, but it does look very interesting!

    Sure that Jorg will do custom work for you it makes aural sense to him -- doubt he would put his name on anything he thought sounded bad!
    (BTW he built me a slightly upsized 15L to stack with my 1212R; a little bigger, but still a one-hander!).

    Is that Jorgs compact 1515L, or large 1515L? How does it compare in volume to the 1212L?

    Is the lowend that comes from that cab as bloomy as a regular 115? I know Jorg's designs push the lowmids, but perhaps with 2 15s in there you might get some bloom.
  9. OK, you gave me gas bad enough that I just emailed for a price for the large cab 1515 with a tweeter, and is still only 68 lbs. :bassist:

    Thanks for the 1515L review! I've been very interested in this cab and the 1215L since I saw them on Jorg's sight. I'm downsizing but I still want a more vintage tone with lots of warm bottom and bloom. I thought either 2 of the 40lb. 8 ohm Compact 1515L's or 1-8 ohm Compact 1215L with 1-8 ohm Compact 1515L on the bottom with at least a 500 watt light weight head might just be what I'm looking for.

    +1 I love the 215 bloom, but hate the size and weight. Jorge's cab looks compact, it's light and, if it can do the big, thick lows traditional 215s do, I'm all the way on it. :hyper:

    Neither Bass Central or Musician's Friend sell his 15" cabs. They sell everything else. What's up with that?
  13. The 15's are quite recent. They probably just don't have them in their system yet. Jorg just got them up on his website, so there is probably a month or two lag between the start of production and them showing up at the retailers and on their sites.

    The sound of 15's with the quick response of 12's....tell me more!

    My 15+L has no mud or boom. In another thread someone called it a "super 12" and I think that's right on the money. It weighs as little as my old Epi UL2-112, but is tighter, more mid-forward and moves way more air.

    His custom work is only available direct. Right now anything covered in "rhino" or with a 15 in it (other than the 1515 I think) is a custom/direct job. The guy is fantastic to deal with.

    Caesarbass....Is that 1515L cab Front or Rear ported? I can't tell from the picture.


  18. I believe the 1515L is front ported like all the other 'baffle cabs'. You can't see the port, but it's between the back edge of the baffle and the back wall of the cabinet. The 112L and 115L have traditional front triangular-shaped ports.

    Wow, according to the website the 1515L is two pounds lighter than the 1212L.
