INTRODUCING YOUR NEXT TONAL UPGRADE
ALL-TONE SPEAKERS, THE NEW INNOVATORS OF TONE
Rock a new tonal upgrade with the all new All-Tone guitar speakers! Designed by the ever-innovative Joe Naylor, these speakers will have your rig exploding with a uniquely warm but present musical flavor. In a world full of reissues and clones, All-Tone is set to raise the bar on tonal standards and original speaker design.
THE STORY OF ALL-TONE SPEAKERS
All-Tone speakers were originally conceived in 2002 by guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor, founder and designer of Reverend Guitars, Railhammer Pickups, Armor Gold Cables, and Naylor Amps. The unique All-tones combine the best characteristics of classic American and British tonalities into one speaker. The clean tone has that open, chimey tone you'd find in an old Jensen, but when pushed hard it yields smooth overdrive with the control and clarity of an old Celestion. Part of the Reverend line, both the 1250 and 1025 models gained wide acclaim, but were discontinued in 2005 as Reverend refocused it's efforts toward guitars only. It looked like the All-Tone speaker was history.
THE LEGEND CONTINUES
Enter Mark Shumaker, pro guitar player, enthusiastic gearhead, obsessive tone freak, and now the proud owner of the All-Tone speaker company! A long time fan of the All-Tone speakers, Mark purchased the rights to the speaker line in 2011. Working with Joe Naylor, the 1250 and 1025 were reincarnated, and two new high power designs, the 1040 and 12100 were added. After several years of designing, tweaking and testing, the new All-Tone speakers are back and ready for action!
ARE THE 1250 AND 1025 EXACT REISSUES OF THE ORIGINALS?
No, not exact. Because of parts availability and change of manufacturer, there are some slight changes. The frames on both models and the magnet on the 1025 are visually different but function the same as the originals. The 1025 tone has not changed but the 1250 has a slightly warmer and smoother treble, which we consider an improvement over the original.
WHO MAKES THE ALL-TONE SPEAKERS?
The speakers are proudly assembled by the WGS company in Paducah, KY to proprietary All-Tone specifications.
IS ALL-TONE PART OF THE REVEREND GUITAR COMPANY?
No, All-Tone is a separate company owned and operated by Mark Shumaker.
WHAT'S BETTER, ALNICO OR CERAMIC MAGNETS?
Neither is better or worse, just different. The type of magnet along won't tell you what a speaker sounds like, the product description will.
SHOULD I BUY 8 OHM OR 16 OHM SPEAKERS?
That depends, the cabinets total ohms should match the amps output ohm rating. We suggest a Google search for "amp cabinet wiring".
DO YOU OFFER CABINET WIRING DIAGRAMS?
Sorry, we do not because there are many diagrams for different cabinets. We suggest a Google search for "amp cabinet wiring".
