ENGL FrankenCab E112VB Hemp


As October rolls to a close, something eerie has been afoot in the secretive world of our capture master elite. The location: Engl® HQ. The Time: midnight. A blinding flash lights up the night sky. A thunderous roar rings out across the ether. “It’s Alive!”

You may be thinking, “What in saint’s name have Engl® been up to?”. Enter the Engl® FrankenCab E112VB Hemp, captured from – and inspired by – an E112VB 1×12” cabinet, outfitted with a Celestion® G12M-50 Hempback driver.

Does Hemp make a perfect driver? Celestion® certainly thinks so, but tonally it’s no run-of-the-mill rodeo! Fusing significant low-end thump, an expertly balanced midrange with some iconic Celestion® crunch thrown in for good measure, and buttery smooth highs, expect a “smokey”, harmonically rich and super responsive tone that’s the perfect companion to brighter sounding amps. When fused with the prowess of a E112VB 1×12” cabinet, expect the pinnacle in German precision exactitude that delivers the clarity, presence and sublime dispersion that lets this driver truly sing!

Part of the new-for-2022 Engl® FrankenCabs DynIR Cabinet Collection, the Engl® FrankenCab E112VB Hemp has been exquisitely captured using an premium collection of mainstay and unorthodox mics. With FrankenCabs, Engl®’s mission is simple: deliver the perfect blend of atypical and super-versatile sonics to empower your performance with an undeniable, unique edge – boy have they delivered!
