ENGL FrankenCab E212VHB Copper


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 E212VHB Copper, captured from – and inspired by – an E212VHB 2×12” cabinet, outfitted with Celestion® Copperback drivers.

Users seeking the “brown sound” should turn away now! For players that demand sublime transparency, tamed mid-range vocal intensity, super-tight lows, crystal-clear upper mid definition and subdued tops, the Copperback is a one-stop-shop. Its party trick? Getting the absolute best from your amplifier, delivering everything from shimmering cleans or a balls-to-the-wall high gain onslaught with just a tweak of the drive knob. When fused with the prowess of a E212VHB 2×12” cabinet, expect oodles of German precision exactitude that fuses the power, presence and definition your performance demands.

Part of the new-for-2022 Engl® FrankenCabs DynIR Cabinet Collection, the Engl® FrankenCab E212VHB Copper 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!
