Eminence and Travis Toy Create Signature Pedal Steel Tone.

eminence speakerEminence, KY – Eminence has teamed up with Nashville session artist and Rascal Flatts sideman Travis Toy to create a 300 watt, ultra-lightweight signature pedal steel guitar speaker.


The 8Ω Double-T 12 features a tight low end, a mid range bite that can cut through a mix, and detailed high end without being too bright. Toy worked closely with the engineers at Eminence to achieve these characteristics and even managed to pack them all into a 12” speaker that weighs just over 7 lbs – less than half the weight of the speakers he replaced.


“I am honored to have the opportunity to create a signature steel guitar speaker with the amazing engineers at Eminence.” said Toy. “This speaker directly addresses many of the issues I’ve had with existing speaker designs for my entire career. I feel that it’s the perfect modern steel guitar speaker. There’s nothing else like it on the market.”
