NAMM 2024: As practically every manufacturer jumps on the modeling amp bandwagon, with Kemper’s floor modeler the latest in a long line, a greater onus is put upon the FRFR cabinet market. Now, Laney has teamed up with Devin Townsend to deliver the LFR-412, the world’s first 4x12 FRFR cabinet, and it goes mighty loud.  

FRFR speakers – which stands for full-range, flat response – are built to handle whatever tone or frequency you throw into them. With a neutral output that simulates the signature chain with near-perfect accuracy, they’re perfect partners in crime for modeling amps, from the Quad Cortex to the Fractal Axe-Fx.
