The loudspeaker: a bassists supposititious child?

For many bass players their instrument is the most vital part of their appearance, and rightly so.

Bo Waterschoot:  “This is a version of Eric Marienthal on the “Eternal Child” solo.  An old transcription that I play quite a lot. Playing at my fretless Human Base classx and using the DI Out of my HEVOS 800D amp.”

 

New 12” loudspeaker

super12 nieuw

The unequaled Hevos 12 “loudspeaker has been upgraded. The result: the same transparent and tight reproduction of deep low to high, but just as a little brighter in the mid. You know that we never change a winning loudspeaker, unless it is an improvement. And we are satisfied indeed!  Additional benefit:  the weight of the Super12 cabinet is now just 10.8 kgs.

The new 12” driver will be used in the Midget12 and Midget12 combo as well.
