The Friedman SS-412 is a 4×12”, closed-back speaker cabinet which utilizes tongue and groove Baltic birch construction to deliver the bass, mid response and great sound you would expect from a Friedman cab. It is was designed to match the Steve Stevens signature head.
The SS-412 features beautiful black Tolex, a salt and pepper grill cloth and Steve Stevens’ signature Ray Gun logo for an unmistakable look.
At the heart of the cab are two 16 Ohm, Celestion G12M-25 Greenback speakers placed strategically in the top two speaker slots of the cabinet. The G12M Greenback has evolved over the decades but still retains its essential sought-after tone. This model is voiced with additional broad mid-range attack and restrained top-end, giving a forward, punchy attitude to chords and a searing lead tone without fizz: ideal for Friedman’s high-powered rock heads. It’s an ideal speaker to bring drive and definition to modern high-gain amps.
Loaded in the two bottom slots are two Celestion V30’s. The Vintage 30 sound has been captured on thousands of recordings from a diverse range of notable players. It features enormously detailed and complex overtones, a warm low-end, a famously rich vocal mid-range and a beautifully detailed top-end. This cab delivers a wonderfully intricate Vintage 30 crunch, revealing the complexities found in hand-wired boutique amps.
The combination of these two different speaker models provides the warmth of the Greenbacks and the power and thump of the V30’s, creating a formidable speaker cabinet that is a perfect match for the Friedman SS100 amplifier.
As with all Friedman cabinets, oversized 12-gauge speaker wire is soldered between the speaker and terminal, assuring that you capture every ounce of valuable tone. The SS-412 is handcrafted with pride in the U.S.A. and designed to withstand the rigors of the road.
