The Original Tone Tubby®, the favorite of Carlos Santana and many others. Rock-solid bottom end, silky rolled-off highs, and midrange that speaks to you. With ample clean headroom and plenty of power, this is a superb all-around speaker.
-Green 4040 (Standard cone surround), features a new ceramic magnet structure.
-The fast speaker motor action allows the cones to generate micro-cone-fine-granular distortion, which has an alnico-like magnet sound to it. The speaker has the traditional ceramic crunch at the end of the cone incursion but is soften by the Hemp cone’s woody sonic texture. Little chime but more crunch.
-The Green 4040 has a woody texture with controlled thick mid-range. Preserves and amplifies that string edge, string bite, and chime but with more thickness than the other Greens. The non-treated cone allows an equal amount of bite, crunch, and less chime.
-Very fast attack with little or no drag and response to picking, and return to neutral, which reveals subtle and different types of amplifier and pedal distortion.
Crunch is at the end of the excursion but it is greatly subdued.
With an alnico magnet like its Red brother, the “Double D” has a specially treated “Double-Dipped” cone for increased power rating with solid bottom end and extended highs and high mids. A great choice for country, edgier rock, or to brighten up a darker sounding rig.

The Rose Bud’s double rolled cloth surround tames the bell like brightness of the speaker’ s treble response and loosens the bass response with a warm throaty sound. The Rose Bud is the smoothest and highest wattage of the three Roses.
68 oz. Alnico Specialty Magnet.
Double Rolled Cloth Surround.
Softer and clear detailed woody texture.
Late cone distortion and late Alnico magnet compression.
Cone distortion occurs much earlier than Alnico magnet compression.
Most balanced of the Rose Family with the high end have equal balance of hard bell, chime, and sparkle.
Less sparkle than the Rose Gold and less hard like bell chime than the Rose Leaf.
Bass is smooth and linear.
Very reactive to touch with extended complex mid-range detail.
Midrange is clear, detailed, not too complex leading to mud or peaking.s
Fast and responsive to touch, but needs slightly more watts to push it into cone distortion. Thus it has a higher power rating than the Rose Gold, (hemp surround) or the Rose Leaf (doped surround).
Most neutral and forgiving of the Rose family.
The Rose Bud’s is the most neutral frequency response of the Rose Family
Handles high end EQ’ing very well.
Excellent for all types of music and pickup types.
Available Size: 12 inch
