The Trunk – A high-end custom lightweight guitar cabinet, especially designed for gigging musicians. It looks like a 2×12” and sounds like a 4×12”, but it accually is a single 12” driver in a very large housing, to create a full-range sound with natural lows and a large front bass reflex tuned for extra punch. Its thin front grill cloth ensures all mid and high frequencies to be portrayed naturally.
Specs: 12″ Celestion Vintage 30 – 60 Watt AES / 120 Watt Peak – 8Ω – Efficiency: 103 dB 1W/1m – W x D x H = 74 x 30 x 62 cm – 18,9 kg / 41.66 lbs – Braced and Sealed – 15mm ply Premium Poplar – Speakon-Jack Combi Connector – Slanted driver and front port
High notes have a narrow projection, therefore the Trunk has a slanted speaker baffle to create optimum dispersion. With the Trunk’s tilted panel there is perfect off-axis dispersion, in all directions, so you don’t have to put your cab on top of a flightcase, or go to 11. The inside of the Trunk is sealed and heavily braced to minimize unwanted vibrations.
The Trunk is fitted with a combi Neutrik Speakon and Jack all-in-one connector. You can use your trusted jack speaker cable. But you can also upgrade your connection with a Speakon which has less resistance than a Jack, and therefore ensures full amp power to be used. As an option I can install a double dish with an extra link connector for easy daisy-chaining if you want to stack multiple Trunks.
The Trunk is stock fitted with a Celestion V30, cognac colored imitation leather, DiBond brushed copper logo and piping and black grill cloth. If you prefer I can mount a different type of driver, keep in mind the price difference. A finish option is to use real vintage leather, it does take time to find a batch with the right color and ware. Maybe you’d like tolex or tweed finish to match your amp-head, anything is possible at my custom shop.
The logo/piping also comes in brushed aluminium.
A touring musician needs a good flightcase. I can have a custom touring grade flightcase built for you anyway you want it. If you prefer a padded cover, I can have them made for you. Of course these covers are of the highest quality thick fabric, with a hard plastic insert and a JM logo on the front.
I can install a close miking system. It is a ring with a piezo microphone in the middle, aimed at the cone. This mic is wired to a metal xlr chassis placed next to the input connector on the back. You never have to put a microphone stand in front of your Trunk again, plug and play. Clean looks.
