    Hi All,

    I've been thinking of getting an Orange 4x12, but wanted to check if Framus Amps and Cabs are still made / available for purchase?

    Local shop (online) lists them in their catalogue, but as I can see from the Framus website, they don't seem to exist anymore...

    Does anyone know the status?

    Thanks!
    Hector

    Thanks Nacho... that's really a shame...

    Guess I'll have to look on ebay or some such place.

    What exactly are you looking for? Me was offered a Dragon head. And there is one last cab at Thomann.

    Well, to be honest, I would want to play one before buying it (I'm a cheap bastard). So I guess I'm asking if they're still available so I could test one compared to the Orange.

    Thomann is where I bought my Framus but it's a very long drive from home! I'm planning a trip this summer to visit friends in Ingolstadt, so might make the detour to Bamberg to try it (if they still have it and will let me). Last summer they had no Framus guitars in stock (all on backorder to Marktneukirchen)

    I just checked their site.. WOW that's cheap!! http://www.thomann.de/intl/framus_cobra_412_st.htm?ref=search_rslt_framus_179573_15

    Very, very tempting....

    There are some at the shop in Nashville. They're no longer manufactured, but you could probably buy what stock is left.

    Thanks for the info... I'm located in Europe, so I can only think the shipping would probably cost more than the cab..

    Cheers!

    Ah, dammit. I was going to ask because Jon said he has a Cobra and Dragon head as well as 4x12 cabs.

    I saw some Framus amps and cabs in Markneukirchen too. A complete Dragon stack for example. I loved to see that it is a BIG bastard! Too bad they had to quit building them.

    Yes, Jon just told me they had some in Germany. Not sure what the details would be to purchase them, but you can email him at [email protected] and he should be able to get you squared.

    Thanks guys!

    Currently I'm looking at the Cobra 4x12 ST cab at Thomann. It's their last one and it's at a low price.

    I'll email him anyway as an Amp would be great to have too eventually!


    Cheers!

    I would not hesitate one minute. Seen the installed speakers? You pay more for the speakers only than for the whole cab.
