DHC Bass

I have played bass for over 40 years and owned and used many exotic amp and cab set ups. I have also made many hefty PA and guitar cabs. Two years ago I reduced the weight of my gear and improved my sound. This started with a class “D” amp weighing 2.6 Kg. and using past experience I designed and manufactured a 12” cab which sounded great without costly frills.

  • Economics were still important and a no frills approach was adopted.
  • Simple hand holds (also acting as free air vents)
  • No leathercloth covering
  • No steel corners
  • Smallest possible connection apertures
  • 18mm throughout without additional complex bracing

Using this basic approach many cabs were made and sold with various drivers. Celestion, Eminence, Fane even low cost Chinese drivers. I was amazed at the sound but needed to reduce weight further so Italian neodymium drivers were tested which raised the price but proved justified based on the lift in sound quality and ease of handling.

This approach has been refined and two key types of bass cabs with high frequency drivers are available.
