do I find out the ohm output of my
amp? Connecting the
proper cabinet to your amp is extremely
important; failure to connect the
correctly wired cabinet to some older
and boutique tube amplifiers can
cause serious damage to the amps.
If you are unsure of the ohm output
on your amp or what cabinet you need
contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or contact the amplifier's manufacturer
I receive my cabinet do I have to
do anything before I play?
Yes, after you take the cabinet
out of its packaging look it over
to make sure there was no damage
done during shipping. Make sure the
ohms on your amp and cabinet match
up. Then… all you have to do
is the HEX KEY that is included for?
From time to time the speakers
might need to be tightened and or
changed; the hex key is used on the
speaker clamps. Be sure not to over-tighten
the speaker clamps as you can damage
my Cabinet need any preventive maintenance?
Not really; just treat it with
lots of love and kindness and your
Hard Truckers cabinet will take care
of everything else.

Yes, unless noted we send out
4 ohm cabinets (two 8 ohm speakers

get the properly wired cabinet for
your amp. Know your ohms.

the grill covers fit any cabinet?
Yes, our grill covers fit both
the hemp and baltic birch cabinets.
is the difference between the silk
and muslin grill covers?
They are two different materials.
They have different textures and
feel. Muslin is the more durable
of the two. Silk is an incredibly
strong fiber but in situations of
high humidity they may tend to loosen
slightly on the frame. If this occurs
simply lay the frame face down and
iron using your iron's "silk"
are the grill covers held in place?
There is metal on the corners
of the grill cover frames that come
in contact with the rare earth magnets
on the cabinet which holds the grill
cover safely in place.
I order a Custom Grill Cover?
Eventually. Drop us a line and
we can come up with a plan.
there any break-in period on the
Tone Tubby Speakers? We
think they sound great right out
of the box but, like any speaker,
or a pair of shoes, they get better
with time. Any signal, guitar, music,
pink noise etc. will speed up the
break in period. (Reprinted from
is the difference between the Hempcone
and a paper cone? Basically
the hempcone just produces more frequencies
that you have ever heard out of a
paper cone. It has more bass response,
better mids and a sweeter high range
unlike a paper cone’s shrill
highs and lack of true bass response.
There is no cone cry or ghost notes
with the hempcone. (Reprinted from
I get speakers other than 8 ohms
in my cabinet? Yes,
we offer Tone Tubby speakers in both
