Designed to be used with the Dirty Shirley head this cool looking 1x12" extension cabinet delivers the incredible vintage clean and crunch tones that the Dirty Shirley wants to put out.
This is one of the ultimate vintage styles speakers available today. While other speakers throughout the years have lost their vintage vibes to suit more modern rock and metal vibes the Creamback has always remained smooth and round yet powerful tone. That is why it has been used by everyone from Hendrix and Clapton to Jeff Beck who solidified aggressive blues-rock tones back in the 60's and 70's.
Made in the USA from Baltic Birch this cabinet perfectly matches the look and feel of the head meaning that it not only looks great on stage but that it can stand up to the same punishment on the road. That is not the only benefit of using Baltic Burch however as it also effects the tone and keeps the low end tight but punchy for a 1x12 and allows for you to get that signature blues bite.
Here's what Friedman says about the Dirty Shirley Cab
The Friedman Dirty Shirley 1×12 Cabinet is a 1×12", open-back extension cabinet. It utilizes tongue and groove Baltic Birch construction to deliver the bass, mid response and great sound you would expect from a Friedman cab.
At the heart of the cab is a Celestion G12M-65 Creamback 16 Ohm speaker. The G12M Creamback is the definitive vintage Celestion ceramic magnet guitar speaker. When the G12M was developed in the mid-sixties, players like Hendrix, Clapton, Beck and Page, who typified the louder and more aggressive blues rock-playing styles that came to characterize that era, quickly adopted it.
The G12M-65 Creamback used in the Dirty Shirley cab produces the familiar woody G12M tone, but handles greater power. This makes it ideally suited for yesterday and today's amps, when a vintage and modern tone is desired. The increased power handling brings with it low end grunt complementing the warm and vocal mid range, crunchy upper-mids and sweet, refined highs.
As with all Friedman cabinets, oversized 12-gauge speaker wire is soldered between the speaker and terminal, assuring you capture every ounce of valuable tone. The Dirty Shirley 1x12EXT is handcrafted with pride in the USA and designed to withstand the rigors of the road.
