Inspired by the excellent performance of the FATCAB, the cabinet that BluGuitar have tweaked over the last few years, they set themselves the task of developing a compact, but great-sounding Box, to compliment the BluGuitar AMP1.
BluGuitar settled on a 12“ speaker, because 10“ speakers just didn't have the low-mid range response. On this basis they experimented with the dimensions of the casing and various bass-reflex constructions. Quickly coming to a realisation: an opening in the casing provides a higher bass resonance, which gives clean and slightly distorted sounds a special airiness, but the opening shouldn’t be too big. If so, you lose the important resonance and the box sounds “small”. However the optimum punch for rock sounds is best achieved with a closed cabinet. This is how they came to the idea of the NANOCABs small opening, which can easily be opened or closed according to your needs. To create more warmth the speaker was mounted to the baffle and a basket weave covering was chosen.
While testing different prototypes the crew at BluGuitar had surprising results: It didn’t matter what style was played - whether clean, crunched or high gain - jazz, blues or rock – the combination of NANOCABand AMP1 sounds perfect! Thanks to the bass-reflex harmonisation, the NANOCAB produces a really big sound with unexpected low-end. It's also great for living rooms, because it has such a full and balanced sound, even at low volume. Furthermore it’s astounding how well this small box establishes itself in a band context. The NANOCAB fits in a suitcase and, thanks to its compact design, can even be transported by plane, train or on a motorcycle.
The BluGuitar NANOCAB is the smallest 1x12“ box with the biggest sound – a real recommendation as a compact cabinet, without any real competitors.
