Hop Pole Golem 112 Cream


The Hop Pole / Adam Steel Golem 112 Cream is an expertly engineered cabinet capture inspired by – and captured from – a one-of-a-kind stone cabinet outfitted with a super focused 8-Ohm Celestion® G12M65 Creamback driver.

It’s an age old question: Just how heavy can your tone get?
That got Adam at Hop Pole thinkin’. The conclusion: a cabinet made from stone.
Yes Tone Heads, you heard that correctly. A cabinet forged from rock itself.

It’s hyper-focussed. There’s zero cabinet resonance to speak of. It’s the ultimate enclosure when it comes to complete unadulterated purity of the companion driver! The Celestion® G12M65 Creamback produces an iconic woody G12M tone, but with its greater power handling capability, it’s perfect for modern amps where a sprinkling of vibey vintage mojo is required. The increased power handling brings with it additional low end grunt that’s the perfect complement to a warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper-mids and sultry refined highs. If you’re in the market for the epitome of pure Creamback-inspired tone, the Hop Pole Golem 112 Cream delivers on all counts: the clarity, the force, the sheer depth of tone will have you thinking there are multiple drivers working overtime!

Part of the new-for-2022 Hop Pole Titanica Britannica DynIR cabinet collection, the Hop Pole / Adam Steel Golem 112 Cream has been meticulously captured using a premium collection of studio grade mics and stellar recording peripherals. With Titanica Britannica, Adam’s mission is simple – deliver the pinnacle in primo oversized British born tone with captures that are as versatile as they are hard-to-come-by!
