    I've read that these debuted at NAMM, but can't find any pics, info, pricing, etc.

    Andy, can you help a brother out? :)

    Andy, what a tease! C'mon, can't we see a pic or two? Maybe just a few seedy details? ;)

    Two cabinets based exactly on Buzz's two most popular cabinet designs. One is the "Vintage" which is two 12" staggered diagonally with the front/rear baffle mount. The second is the "Classic Rock" cabinet, which is shorter and wider and has the baffle split in the middle so the drivers are splayed outward for a wider dispersion. All are made of "Light-ply" a new plywood which is about 40% of the weight of birch (Buzz used Luan, we use a modern light weight ply we both like better). Loaded prices are in the 800-range in black or creme. Pics and videos coming. The Vintage sounds huge ! Chunky, punchy, articulate. The stock speakers are Eminence Texas Heat, with other types easily available. The Classic Rock cabinet at the show had 1265's and sounded most excellent with the Mantis and Train-II. Once the NAMM stuff comes back, we can do pictures and put up the web pages. Buzz will be shooting a video as well, although it's tough to capture how good a box sounds on a video really. I can say that a few people who own Buzz' boxes came by the booth and felt we "got it right" as did Buzz. He's a dear sweet guy, super smart, great player, and we're happy to be working with him. His guitars are most-excellent too. :) Hope this suffices for now.

    It was great seeing you and Annette! It was really cool hanging with Buzz and actually playing while he adjusted the guitar!

    I was really happy with the Blackjack 21 watter.... What an amp! I want one.... hint.

    One of the show highlights!

    It's TGP, so of course I "need" more info... ;)

    - Do you plan on selling them unloaded? I've got some EVs I'd love to keep using.
    - Approximate dimensions? I've heard they're super compact
    - How do these compare to some of the top shelf OS 212 cabs like Bogner, Stone Age, etc. Do they offer the same low end whallop and knock?

    They sound awesome, and there will be unloaded prices yes. Not yet calculated, but coming.

    Guitar sounds awesome also. My 15 year old son shot the demo for at Wolfe guitars here in Florida. It sold the next day.

    Agreed, Buzz's guitars are very hip. Can't wait to get a couple.... :)

    . There is a YouTube video of Andy playing the 4 Aces amp thru one of the Feiten cabs. Here's the link.

    Andy will the combo amps have the Buzz Feiten mods in the future?
    Also that 4 Aces is a bad Lil Fucher!

    The production cabs do benefit from the lighter plywoods, but no, at the moment Buzz has not been involved with the combo designs.

    Can't wait to hear these cabs and see some pics/specs on the site, Andy. From the modest smattering of YouTube clips, they sound really nice.

    (Not to mention the BlackJack Mark II. Wow!)

    Andy, any word on the new Feiten cabs? I keep checking the website. I suspect you guys might be a little slammed with orders for the new Casino series amps. ;)
