Eminence New Speakers – NAMM’15

Eminence and Eric Johnson Team Up Once Again to Deliver Vintage Tone.

Eminence, KY – Anyone who knows Eric Johnson knows he makes no compromises when it comes to guitar tone and the gear he uses to achieve it. The original EJ-1250 was designed to offer a truly vintage sounding speaker using modern, readily available components. Not one to rest on his laurels, Eric set his sights next on how to make it more versatile and more affordable for the end user.
As Eric put it, “The new design concentrates on achieving a balanced EQ spectrum so
that this speaker will sound good for cleans tones, as well as semi-distorted and full
for high gain lead tones.” 


Through a reformulated paper cone and optimized basket design, the 40 watt EJ-1240 offers vintage Alnico tone with tight/punchy lows, nice lower-mid growl, crisp upper-mids, and very controlled, articulate, and open highs, and is available in both 8 and 16 ohm.
“If you would have asked me a year ago if the Eric Johnson Signature model could be improved upon, I would have said it’s impossible.” said Anthony Lucas, Eminence tech support specialist. “I’m always impressed with Eric’s drive for perfection, and together with George Alessandro we kept tweaking the design until we all felt we had arrived at something truly incredible.”
