Designed and hand made in Finland, TOOB is a family of ultra-light speaker cabinets for amplified musical instruments, principally guitar and bass.
Introduced in 2017 and weighing from 3,9 kg to 4,6 kg depending on the model, TOOBs are in use in a dozen countries already, from USA to Japan.
While the weight saving against conventional cabinets is up to 70%, the tone gets consistent praise from users.
Professional musicians, relying on public transportation in urban areas, constitute a major part of them.
Telescopic versions, fitting in a suitcase or even a cabin bag, have been developed for the globe-trotting artist.
The name comes from Thinking Out Of the Box.
The heavy plywood box has been replaced by extremely light, yet strong and impact-resistant Polypropylene pipe used in vast quantitites by the construction industry.
A high-quality 10” or 12” Neodymium speaker is attached with a bespoke clamping rim.
