TKS now in Swindon

Recommended Posts

Well the deal was done yesterday

2x TKS S112 cabs ordered from bass gear yesterday after a very satisfying Saturday afternoon there with Phil and Vic

And to power these cabs will be a tone hammer 500

4 weeks and counting, can't wait for the phone call summoning me back down the M4

Woohoo.

Nice one. Looks great. They pair up well with the Little Mark amp too, huh?

They really do! Spent about 10 hours with it today and it's stunning. I'll try and get some recordings up sometime soon :-)

I would be interested to know how it sounds playing reggae style, with the treble and mids cut on the amp, solo neck pick up and tone rolled off on a Jazz bass.
I am considering these cabs with an LM11 for my reggae band :)[size=4] [/size]

I've been gigging a pair of S112s for a couple of months now, and I have to say I am extremely happy with them. They provide all the low end "thump" I need for my double bass requirements and for the occasions I used them with electric bass, have given me that great old school vibe that I've been looking for. I chose not to have tweeters and don't feel I'm missing out on anything at all sonically.
Interestingly most of the comments I have received have been from guitarists, all positive and aimed at how good they look as well as how good they sound! I went for the tweed finish and cloth grill
Can't seem to add photos from my phone - will try later!

Nice to hear, thanks for the review and feedback.

There's been more interest from double bass players lately, for the S112 in particular. Just got an e-mail from a double bass player in Norway who also thought the S112 to be a very good match for both his acoustic and electric double basses.
