Eminence Unveils the Travis Toy Signature Speaker

A 300 watt, ultra-lightweight speaker designed for pedal steel guitars.

Eminence, KY (July 30, 2015) -- Eminence has teamed up with Nashville session artist and Rascal Flatts sideman Travis Toy to create a 300 watt, ultra-lightweight signature pedal steel guitar speaker.

The 8-ohm Double-T 12 features a tight low end, a midrange bite that can cut through a mix, and detailed high end without being too bright. Toy worked closely with the engineers at Eminence to achieve these characteristics and even managed to pack them all into a 12” speaker that weighs just over 7 lbs – less than half the weight of the speakers he replaced.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to create a signature steel guitar speaker with the amazing engineers at Eminence.” said Toy. “This speaker directly addresses many of the issues I’ve had with existing speaker designs for my entire career. I feel that it’s the perfect modern steel guitar speaker. There’s nothing else like it on the market.”

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
