OwnHammer Impulse Response Libraries: 115 VVRB E130

The "115 VVRB" is based on and seeking to recreate the sound of a Fender® Vibroverb 1x15 open back combo.

The "E130" is based on and seeking to recreate the sound of a 15 inch, 8-ohm JBL® E130-8 made in 1981.

Developer's Notes
The Cabinet (115 VVRB)
"As with most open back cabinets from this manufacturer, the thinner pine construction lends itself to a less rigid and more resonant structure, though the VERY open back prevents much internal cabinet reflection. This yields an open and clear sound that allows the speaker to do most of the talking."

The Speaker (E130)
"The E130-8 specimens in the OwnHammer collection are impeccable, in museum/time capsule NOS condition, and simply sound incredible for what they do. JBL guitar speakers have a tendency to have a lot of upper mids and top end, and while there is certainly a clear top to this speaker (which helps in clearing space for putting a Tube Screamer up front), it was also used as the woofer component in hi-fi systems in its day and this consistency shows through. As a result, the E130 has a very even response and taper compared to what one would typically think of with speakers like the D120."

The Combination
"For those who are seeking the quintessential Texas blues tone made famous by the timeless, legendary musician Stevie Ray Vaughan, this is the best place to start. While most certainly having an eclectic gear arsenal, the use of this cab and speaker pairing were the core of the SRV sound, and can be seen in his back line on so many occasions. Once you play through these IR's, you just 'get it', and it goes without saying that the neck pickup in a Strat hitting a Fender® type amp on the edge of breakup sounds amazing, as should be no surprise!"
