Speaker Simulation for Your 4-ohm Amp

The Mesa/Boogie Cabclone is a speaker cabinet simulator and load box that gives you entirely new ways to use your guitar amplifier on stage or in your studio. Plug your amplifier's speaker output to the Cabclone, and you can connect your amp's tone directly to a mixing console, mic preamp, or even direct to your recording device. Three different cabinet simulation voicings let you emulate the sound of open-back, closed-back, and "vintage" speaker cabinets. You won't need to lug a speaker cabinet with you to get outstanding tone from your amplifier, with the Mesa/Boogie Cabclone.

Mesa/Boogie Cabclone Speaker Cabinet Simulator and Load Box at a Glance:
  • Easily interface your guitar amp with your mixing console or recording rig
  • Minimize the size of your rig, not your tone
  • Built tough for long-term reliability
Easily interface your guitar amp with your mixing console or recording rig

Sure, your 150-watt tube amp sounds awesome when it's cranked up, but that's more volume than most small stages and clubs can take. Plug it into the Mesa/Boogie Cabclone, and you can run the XLR DI output direct to the mixing board instead of trying to mic up a roaring speaker cabinet. You'll have less volume on stage which will lead to a cleaner overall sound, and you can crank your amp without melting the faces of your audience.

Minimize the size of your rig, not your tone

Guitarists at Sweetwater know that your speaker cabinet is a big part of your tone, but we also know that you spend a lot of time and energy getting that beast to and from gigs. In your studio you may hook up your cabinet to the Cabclone and record both the Cabclone's direct output and your miked cabinet, but for live gigs you don't need to have your cab connected to the Cabclone. Just grab your amp head and Cabclone, and you're ready for your show.

Built tough for long-term reliability

In typical Mesa/Boogie fashion, the Cabclone speaker simulator is built tough as nails to survive your most demanding gigs. There's a handy, removeable tilt-back stand built right in so you can place it over the handle on your amplifier head. And it's a completely passive design, so you won't need to keep track of a separate power supply. As a gigging companion, the Cabclone is much easier to deal with than a full-size speaker cabinet.

Mesa/Boogie Cabclone Speaker Cabinet Simulator and Load Box Features:
  • Speaker cab simulator and load box for guitar amplifiers rated at 4 ohms
  • For use with guitar amplifiers rated up to 150W
  • Lets you select between open-back, closed-back, and "vintage" speaker cabinet emulations
  • Allows you to play your amplifier head without a speaker cabinet connected
  • Makes it easy to connect your guitar amp directly to a mixing console, mic preamp, or recording device
  • Headphone output defeats line outputs for silent practice
  • Important Notice for International Customers: Mesa/Boogie products sold by Sweetwater are intended for use within the United States. We are unable to ship any Mesa/Boogie products outside of the US.

Made me abeliever

I have been using a Triaxis and Mesa Power amp into a Marshall 1960 cabinet for 18 years. I have recently found myself playing some smaller places so I talked with my salesman about the Cabclone. I hoped it would sound good enough to get by. I arrived at our next gig early to check out the unit through the P.A. It sounds amazing! So much so that as our bass player came in he was looking around for my 4x12. Surprisingly, I have found the open back setting the best for my needs. Over all Mesa quality and performance.

The Demo Video Doesn't Do This Justice!

Looking for something to consolidate the live rig and heard about these. After watching the demo video I thought I was going to really lose quality with going cab-less. But no! From the second I plugged it in me and my band-mates were blown away! I think Mesa already sold two more!

Cab Clone

I bought this a few months ago. It works as advertised: you can use and record your amp directly to an interface with this device and also silent practice via headphones. It works but the quality of the sound leaves so much to be desired in my opinion. I find the 3 cabinet presets to be limited and not completely true to the cabs they represent. I recorded several times with the cab clone but I always found the sound to be lacking some frequencies (the treble and bass are too thin). For recording I rather use my SM57. For practicing or live playing I think this device is great.
