1971 - Getting Noticed

Cliff Cooper – Founder & CEO

We originally had the idea of building the biggest speaker cabinet in the world so we built two guitar cabinets that were 24×12”. We also built a 10×15” bass cab. We used these cabinets at outdoor festivals and we received massive press coverage.

Those cabs certainly sounded great and were extremely loud. When we took these Goliaths to the Frankfurt Trade Fair in 1971, they stole the show.
