JENSEN VINTAGE CERAMIC C8R - SUPERCAB IR LIBRARY (1152 IRS)

NEW! This is a systematic capture of a Jensen C8R AlNiCo speaker, from the Vintage series, installed in two different cabinets:

  • a 1x8" Open Back cabinet.
  • a 1x8" Closed Back cabinet.

including both the original and the remastered version, for a total of 1152 IRs, developed in conjunction with a Jensen Speakers product specialist, in order to recreate the most authentic playing experience, as if you were playing an original speaker.

The C8R is a little gem in the Jensen Vintage series. It delivers a solid compact tone that defies its size. Extremely versatile, it was originally designed for small home and student amplifiers; but with a microphone in front, it was soon discovered as capable of transferring on tape some of the biggest tones ever. Not by chance, the vintage Fender Champ amplifiers loaded with the C8R are treasured by many players as great studio tools. To offer even more tonal options, we captured the C8R not only in its vintage correct open back "combo" style cabinet, but also in a custom-made closed back, to achieve even more punch in the low mids.

DISCOVER THE ENTIRE COLLECTION

The series of the official Jensen IR Libraries is growing every day.
Any single library in the collection is created after an extensive sampling and editing work in conjunction with Jensen Speakers product specialists, seeking for perfection in every capturing step.

Bundles of 3 and 10 libraries with increasing discounts are available.

ALSO INCLUDES THE REMASTERED VERSION

This library also includes the remastered version of all the IRs.
The vintage Jensen speakers were designed mainly for clean tones. The maximum overdrive achievable back in those days was generated by the amplifier's natural clipping and compression, and maybe by some of the earlier fuzz pedals. Those speakers were voiced for sparkly, shimmering treble response, with a remarkable amount of energy well over 6kHz, to be coupled with the warm sounding circuits, and the thin, resonant cabinets of the era.
The IRs of the Vintage Jensen Speakers behave exactly as expected, bright, clear and detailed.
In the modern world, especially with high gain tones, naturally very rich of harmonic overtones, all this energy in the treble range may sometimes turn in an overly bright, aggressive tone.

To further expand the possible applications of these historical speakers, we decided to offer all the Vintage Jensen IRs also in a "Remastered" option, where we finely tuned the top end response to be warmer and less prominent, so to make it suitable also in more contemporary, higher gain applications.
A sort of virtual "aged tone", that offers a whole new range of sounds for every application. All the IRs in the library are effectively doubled by the "Remastered" version, opening up new possibilities to the player, once again "beyond the original hardware".

MADE FOR THE SUPERCABINET

The library is created for the TH-U Supercabinet, which allows to:

  • graphically browse the IRs in the library.
  • blend them together.
  • craft new cabinet tones with the unique Multiband mode.
  • use the IR in the software.
  • export the IRs in .wav, compatible with the software IR loaders and all the major hardware modelers.

The microphones used during the capturing session are:

  • AKG C12.
  • AKG C414.
  • AKG C414 XLS.
  • Audio Technica AT4033.
  • Coles 4038.
  • Electro Voice RE16.
  • Groove Tubes MD1.
  • Neumann KM84.
  • Neumann U47.
  • Neumann U87.
  • RODE NT1.
  • Royer R121.
  • Sennheiser E609.
  • Sennheiser MD421.
  • Shure B52.
  • Shure SM57.
  • Shure SM58.
  • Shure SM81.

Every microphone has been moved to 4 different horizontal position (Cap, Cap Edge, Cone and Cone Edge), two distances and two angulations, for a total of 16 IRs each.

All the measurement set has been repeated for each one of the cabinet in the library.

All IRs have benn phase aligned and they can be blended without phase cancellations.
