Hop Pole Ultrabeast 612 Cream


The Hop Pole / Adam Steel Ultrabeast 612 Cream is an expertly engineered cabinet capture inspired by – and captured from – a custom Zilla® 6×12” Bass Cabinet outfitted with a sextet of Celestion® G12M65 Creamback drivers.

One thing’s for certain, Adam knows exactly what you demand in the all-important tone department: sublime definition and a sonic scale of gargantuan proportions. Enter the Ultrabeast 612 Cream. Captured from a custom 6×12″ Zilla® cab, outfitted with Celestion® G12M65’s, it’s the epitome of oversized rafter-rattlin’ tone backed by a primo low-end response, second-to-none dispersion and a super-versatile adaptable palette to boot!

The marriage of this titan-like enclosure with Celestion G12M65 Creambacks results in the familiar woody G12M tone but with greater power handling capability – perfect for modern amps where a sprinkling of vibey vintage mojo is required. The increased power handling brings with it additional low end grunt, the perfect complement to a warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper-mids and sultry refined highs.

Part of the new-for-2022 Hop Pole Titanica Britannica DynIR cabinet collection, the Hop Pole / Adam Steel Ultrabeast 612 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!
