Jensen Releases the N12K Speaker

The new model was previously only available in Fender's Tone Master combos.

Tempe, AZ (August 26, 2020) -- The Jensen N12K, a Vintage Neodymium speaker is now in stock and available for purchase from CE Distribution. The N12K was previously only available in Fender Tone Master amps but is now available for purchase as a standalone speaker.

The N12K delivers warm, full-bodied tone with remarkable headroom and just the right amount of brilliance and sparkle. It produces true original American tone in a modern and lightweight 12 inch, 4.41 lb. speaker.

Jensen worked in conjunction with Fender to develop the N12K. This speaker was designed for the new Fender Tone MasterTM Deluxe Reverb and Twin Reverb. The process of developing the N12K involved extremely accurate analysis and optimization of the overall sound, starting from the same seamed-cone membrane used in the C12K. The frequency response curve of the two speakers is strikingly close, as well as most of the key elements and parameters.

Our guitarists describe this speaker as heavy on the mids with a solid, straightforward tone. Presented with overdrive distortion, it powers through with lows that are bold and heavy.

The emerging parts market in the ’80s, a luthier friend, and a cousin who studied acoustic engineering helped this bassist create a one-of-a-kind instrument.

Thank you for allowing us to share our bastardized beauties with you. I built this bass with the help of my friend Drew in 1980 or ’81. It was an instrument born out of necessity. Stock instruments of the time weren’t keeping up with the musical progressions that were happening in the ’70s and ’80s, so if you wanted to advance your art, you had to get creative. Fortunately, parts manufacturers and inventive minds were there to accommodate.

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
