Artesound VibroTweed, antiqued solid maple cabinet, 18W - 1x12" Combo
The VibroTweed is a new Artesound amp. The output is 18W, powered by a couple of 6V6 tubes Two Channel layout: tweed style and BlackFace Deluxe reverb style Spring reverb and tremolo in both channels. 100% Hand Wired Available in combo or head configurations.
After various tests, the final choice of speaker for this combo ended up in the favour of the Jensen Blackbird 40.
The Blackbird 40 is the first speaker in the Jet Series featuring Jensen's exclusive Reinforced AlNiCo magnet technology. The voice of the Blackbird 40 offers a powerful, controlled bass range and all the sparkly brilliance that is typical of the classic Jensen Speakers.
Equally suited to clean, quasi-acoustic tones, to crunchy overdrive ones, up to powerfully distorted lead tones, the Blackbird 40 offers a very distinct yet versatile character. It suits a wide range of applications, form the traditional, warm, jazz, country, rock and blues tones, up to the fiercer brit-style power-chords and lead lines
Another nice side effect of choosing this speaker element is 2.5kg less than the average weight of ceramic magnet speakers, thus reducing the total weight of this combo to around 16kg.
