A broad response ideal for either lead or rhythm guitar, as well as a deep range for dropped tuning, lets the Minneapolis breathe new life into your tone. An American-made purple paper cone (honoring our favorite local legend) is anchored into a robust steel basket and delivers a strong and even tone for lows, mids, and highs.

This 10 in. model provides high sensitivity by using a high-power ferrite magnet and the same 1.75 in. voice coil used in the 12 in. ToneSpeak series is a perfect upgrade for anyone looking to add a little more oomph to their tube amp.
