The Ceramic 8VF, designed by Chris Kosiak, is the most high-powered 8” speaker the company offers.

Kokomo, IN (September 10, 2019) -- Expanding its line of high quality guitar and bass loudspeakers, Ted Weber has unveiled two new models: the Ceramic Gray Wolf 10 and Ceramic 8VF.

Ted Weber’s Ceramic Gray Wolf 10 is the perfect 10” speaker for aggressive playing. Whether clean, overdriven, or heavily distorted, the Gray Wolf has plenty of bite and edge without sounding harsh. It was designed to emulate the Gray Wolf 12” speaker but in the smaller size to accommodate a wider range of amplifiers. Don’t be fooled though - while intended for aggressive playing, the Gray Wolf 10 sounds great for blues and indie rock too.

  • 10” Speaker
  • Impedance: 4, 8, or 16 ohms
  • Power: 25 or 50w
  • Use: For aggressive and powerful tone with bite
  • Availability:
  • Price: $100

Ted Weber’s Ceramic 8VF, designed by our very own Chris Kosiak, is the most high-powered 8” speaker we currently make. It has upper mid-range punch, with high end clarity without getting harsh. It is very responsive to gain in terms of proportional break- up, but can sound very clean. This speaker is great for aggressive tones, but is also good for jazz and blues.

  • Impedance: 4, 8, or 16 ohms
  • Power: 60w
  • Use: For big tone from a small package

It’s not difficult to replace the wiring in your pickups, but it takes some finesse. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. After numerous requests, this month we’ll have a closer look at changing wires on a single-coil pickup. As our guinea pig for this, I chose a standard Stratocaster single-coil, but it’s basically the same on all single-coil pickups and easy to transfer. It’s not complicated but it is a delicate task to not destroy your pickup during this process, and there are some things you should keep in mind.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
