TC Electronic Announces the RS112 Bass Cabinet

TC Electronic''s RS112 adds a compact option to their RS bass amplification line.

Risskov, Denmark (October 11, 2009) - TC Electronic delivers a brand new addition to its award-winning RS range of bass cabinets. The new RS112 delivers a great, punchy sound from a cab that’s been designed with the most compact of footprints.

TC Electronic’s brand new RS112 cabinet is a new high-quality yet extremely compact addition to the RS range. Delivering all the tone musicians have come to expect from TC yet in a much smaller footprint, RS112 packs a punch when it needs to – despite its diminutive size.

As with all RS cabs in the range, the driver and tweeter (with rear HF adjustment that allows players to tailor the tone just how they want it) have been custom designed by Eminence to offer the maximum possible power and quality. RS112’s 12” driver and 1” tweeter deliver 200 watts of pure power, making them the perfect combination to deliver full tone and big sound wherever space is limited.

For smaller gigs RS112 is the ideal standalone cabinet. But because it maintains the RS range's stackability concept, it can also easily slot in with other RS cabinets in the range to scale up the system, whatever the live situation. And with its compact and lightweight design, plus a rugged finish suited to a hard life on the road, the cab’s portability is another obvious attraction. Weighing in at just 30 lbs and with a top-placed handle for easy transportation, this is virtually a grab ‘n’ go cab for any gig!

The RS112 features an Eminence 12” and coaxial-placed 1” driver combination which secures fast response and punch while the rear cabinet vent adds the final touch to the ultra-low end reproduction. The RS112 also features two high quality Speakon connectors as well as a heavy duty HF attenuator on the rear side.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
