Hard Truckers, the ambitious folks who managed to design, build, and maintain the Grateful Dead’s infamous 26,400-watt Wall of Sound (both on and off tour,) have introduced a new eco-friendly speaker cabinet made of pressed hemp, covered in renewable bamboo, and boasting two 12″ Tone Tubby Hempcone Speakers.
Aimed at professional guitar players and weekend warriors alike, “The Fatty” is being billed as an environmentally friendly and truly sustainable alternative to generic extension cabinets.
The cabinet, which is built of 3?4” hemp board, features an open back design, protective and stylish hardwood edging (maple or vermilion on the base model; cocobolo, birds eye maple, mahogany and koa available as options,) finished road-worthy bamboo siding, two front-mounted 12″ Tone Tubby Hempcone Speakers with specially milled Hard Truckers aluminum speaker clamps and “quick” disconnects, and a single Neutrik locking1?4” jack with latch release.
“The Fatty” also sports a protective cover made of baltic birch, and held in place by rare earth magnets––but for the true deadhead Hard Truckers offers a full assortment of custom tie-dye and batik grill covers.
The perfect gift for the green guitar player who has everything.
