A ToneSpeak original hemp cone is the basis for this modern American tone.

Hemp cone speakers have become popular for taming bright, harsh, ear-fatiguing amps and guitars.  The warm, woody, smooth, organic qualities of the material are heavily embodied in this speaker.  It’s full and defined in the lows, very natural in the mids, and warm, smooth, and creamy in the highs.  While a darker tone was desired here, the focus was to eliminate the associated muddiness.  This speaker retains good clarity and definition with the gain knob.  It’s the perfect speaker for both the Blues and country chicken pickin’.
