Friedman cabinets. Anyone played the 412/15 butterslax CAB?


I am trying to choose between the Friedman 412 and the 412/15. Has anyone here tried both, and able to share experiences?

My amps are: Friedman JJ, Soldano SLO, Randall Satan.

I play high gain metal tuned to C standard. Lots of trem picking and palm muted galloping. My band plays loud. 2 guitars, bass, drums, vox.

My common sense is telling me to go with the 412. Better chance of being able to get it out of my car and back into my house by myself after a gig. More options for swapping speakers. But I am having trouble resisting the allure of pushing air out a pair of those 412/15 cabs.


Thanks for any input.




I mean realistically I'd just go 4x12. But now that I know that the 4x12/15 is thing I really want one...
That is pretty much exactly how I feel. Insanely curious about the experience of cranking an amp through this thing. Envisioning a pair of 4x12/15s side by side, with a head centered on top.

Problem is, a v30/GB mix in the 412s is a proven formula. I have some idea of what I'm going to get. No idea what a Celestion 15" Fullback/G12H-30 combo sounds like in comparison.

Lots of trem picking and palm muted galloping.
Those 15s might not respond fast enough for you. Too much "sag" if you will. That's why 10s are a desirable speaker size for bass. All of the low end with a faster attack. 15s are something a reggae bass player would prefer.

Some good points there Heinz57Pep.

Isn't the 12/15 cab around 100 pounds? Ah, to be young again. Get the bass player to help!
