SkinCabs Carbon Fiber and Kevlar 4x12

SkinCabs is a new cab manufacturer based in Nashville and making their NAMM debut. And what looks like a regular 4x12 here is actually quite a bit different. That's because their cabs are constructed from carbon fiber and kevlar, resulting in an incredibly lightweight powered cab at only 39 pounds. It's quite a sensation to be able to effortlessly lift a 4x12 with a couple of fingers!

An overachieving overdrive that gets way bigger than its name suggests.

Sweet balanced crunch tones. Dynamic. Sparkling, full, and clean at attenuated guitar volume. High-quality build.

Pretty expensive.

$249

Overdrive pedals don’t often set my world alight—even great ones. But I’ve spent a month with the England-built Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive, and it remains attached to the other end of my coil-y cable. Ostensibly, the Small Speaker is meant to be a variation on the tweed-Fender-Champ-in-a-box theme. However, both the pedal’s name and the Champ associations fail to do justice to how large and alive it sounds and feels tethered to a bigger amp.
