Ever noticed that your amp sounds amazing when it's turned down low, with silky-smooth cleans and rich distortion, but when you turn the volume up, it all just sounds the same? That's because not all loudspeakers are created equally. So if you like to play it loud and you care about your sound, consider the Electro-Voice EVM12L Zakk Wylde Black Label Guitar Speaker. It's a 300-watt, 12" loudspeaker for guitar that's designed by metalheads for metalheads.
A Heavy Metal Legend
The original Electro-Voice EVM12L was an instant hit when introduced in the early '80s. Renowned for its tone, even when pushed to extremely high volumes, the EVM12L quickly became a favorite among metal enthusiasts. Just imagine the beating a speaker cabinet takes after 40 minutes of being on the powered end of an untamed heavy metal rocker's guitar rig. The EVM12L suffers the beating gladly, and dishes it right back out at the audience.
Black Label Branding
It comes as no surprise that metalhead Zakk Wylde of Black Label Society chose the EVM12L to serve as his personal loudspeaker. Working together, Zakk Wylde and Electro-Voice improved on the original with a new magnet design and better venting. And that's why this speaker comes with no branding other than "Black Label" -- designating it the official loudspeaker of Black Label Society.
