ENGL FrankenCab E412XXL Claret


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 E412XXL Claret, captured from – and inspired by – a monstrous E412XXL 4×12” cabinet, outfitted with Celestion® Redback drivers.

A gargantuan 150-watts of power handling. A supersized 2-inch voice coil. The heaviest G12 magnet in the Celestion® line. The Redback is a certified monster in the modern world of guitar speakers. Sonically, a super-tight low-end, complex midrange and smooth highs combine to deliver the edge players toeing the heavier side of guitar demand. When fused with Engl®’s premier XXL 4×12 cabinet, the power, exemplary dispersion and tonal bombardment your performance demands is primed and ready for everything from alt-rock chuggage to drop-tuned means!

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!
