So, you’ve just forked out $1000-plus bucks on a shiny new floor modeler and spent hours crafting your dream tone, but when it comes to unleashing it on the rest of the world… it just doesn’t feel right. That visceral feeling of air wafting from your amp’s speaker isn’t there, and all the energy you’re used to with a traditional amp is gone. If this is you right now, then getting your hands on one of the best FRFR speakers will help you solve this common issue.

Whereas the speakers you’d find in a typical guitar cabinet are designed to be paired with specific guitar amp heads, they also have tonal characteristics all of their own that don’t always play nice with a modeled guitar amp. On the other hand, an FRFR speaker should have no such coloration. Standing for ‘Full Range, Flat Response’, an FRFR speaker won’t color your sound or add any unwanted frequencies, providing a true picture of your guitar tone.

When my head’s not buried in the best of modern and vintage gear, I run a small company helping musicians with songwriting, production and performance, and I play bass in an alt-rock band.
