Technical Details


Ted Weber Speakers are built with tighter, more concentric voice coil gaps, and lower carbon, machined steel parts in the magnet circuits which yield a stronger, more controlled tone at all volumes, particularly in the low end at high volumes.

 Ted Weber Speakers are hand-built to order, to ensure the best attention to detail is paid to your speaker.  We build them one at a time, on a table - not hundreds at a time on an assembly line.  This allows us to reduce the margin for error and produce an overall higher-quality speaker.  Please allow 7-10 business days for your order to be built and then shipped.

Flippin' fantastic

I've got a Blackface Super Reverb circuit shoved into a compact 1x12 combo. My overdrive sound comes from a mix of pedals and power tube (2 x 6L6) saturation. I'd been using a Weber Ceramic California for years, and I like the speaker, but as advertised, it can be a bit "revealing" of certain transients in fuzzes and spitting tubes. I recently swapped in an AlNiCo Chicago and those issues are gone. My cleans still sound great, and my fuzzes and overdrives suddenly have a throaty warmth to them that caused everyone in the band to spontaneously take note. Now I've got the California in an extension cab for clean-only use as needed. Rad sounds abound. I usually use a power attenuator, so I won't benefit from the AlNiCo compression all the time at lower levels, but in a soundproof studio and on bigger stages, I can't wait to crank this thing. Thanks, Weber!

Just arrived couple days ago. Replaced an original JBL D 120F, what a difference! Gone is the ice pick in the ear. Warm, full bodied and handles overdrive well
