Can You Crank Your Amp and Keep It Quiet?The Rivera Silent Sister isolation cabinet for guitar amps is a seriously useful cabinet to have, both in the studio and on stage. Sometimes you really need to crank up your amp to get the tone you're looking for, but often that results in a volume higher than is comfortable to be around! And so we turn to the isolation cabinet - the Rivera Silent Sister isolation cab to be precise. The Silent Sister sports a 1 x 12" Celestion G12T-75 speaker in a hardwood-core plywood cabinet. In the cabinet are two pre-wired microphone goosenecks, connected to the XLR outputs on the back of the cabinet. Connect your amp, choose your mics, close the lid, and you'll be able to crank up your amp without flooding your space with guitar tone.
On stage, Silent Sister will let you run your amp at its optimum tone without adding to your stage volume, which in turn means cleaner sounding monitor mixes and a more enjoyable experience on stage in general. In the studio, you can track guitars live with the rest of the band without worrying about signal bleed - not to mention your neighbors will probably appreciate the Silent Sister too!

Quieter than my real sister

Every Studio, professional or home based should have a Rivera Silent Sister. The ability to have your amp leveled the way it was supposed to be (on 11) and be able to cut vocals in the same room, track your next masterpeice at 2am without having the cops called. Yes, please.
Using a 1960B live now? Tired of complaints of "beaming" the front 3 rows at your shows? Problem solved. T-75 loaded and awesome for tracking at home as well.
by Dave from New York CityWhile Rivera has definitely come up with an iso-cab that sounds great internally, the fact is that this cab is anything but "silent." Making this cab with the "pressure relieved" feature was a big tra... read more [+]de-off - internal sound quality versus effective isolation. It does bring down the volume significantly, but not enough for my situation, which is a home studio in the basement of a town-house, being only 14' wide with neighbors on both sides. The volume from this cab when driven by a Hiwatt 100 watt head is still way too much for this space, and the low-end that radiates out of this thing like nuclear fallout, even with my two lower watt amps (6 and 15 watts), and is the kind that goes right through walls and floors like a hot knife through butter. I also think the volume that emanates from it might even be too much for a live stage, it you're looking for genuine isolation. A situation where you can put the cab in a back room some where, and you're not surrounded by neighbors, might work out fine as is. For my part, I built a multi-layered iso-box to put the Silent Sister into, and then, and only then, after several hundred dollars more and 3 solid weeks of hard work later, it's actually quiet enough to use in my space. Until someone comes up with a lightweight substance that can both absorb and stop sound vibrations (and this may not be till the Star Trek era...), there's no way a box this small and lightweight can actually isolate to the degree they claim. As the experts say, true sound proofing only comes from mass, mass, and more mass, and this cab does not have enough mass for true sound proofing. That said, the miked sound in the monitors is great, not just passable or pretty good, and far better than any other iso-cab on the market, which is why I opted to keep this cab and make it work. close [-]
