Bonkers for Bass

Cab Pack - Dr. Bonkers Silver & Black Bass Collection Vol. 1 is the first offering in a new series of user cab files for Bass! It features two bass cabinets captured with multiple microphones in optimal positions using the "Mic + DI" technique. The "Doc" is pleased to bring you some of the most popular bass cabs ever in this new series featuring UltraRes™ captures, and assures that there will be more where these came from.
User Cabs can easily be uploaded to your Fractal Audio Systems product using Fractal-Bot, Axe-Edit, AX8-Edit, or Cab-Lab. This pack also includes the high resolution .IR files required to create your own original mixes in Cab-Lab. (Please remember that sharing Cab Mixes containing these or any commercial IRs is not permitted.)

Speakers & Microphones


  • Alu15 - Based on a Hartke™ 1415 Bass Combo, voiced with the original Aluminum Cone 1x15 inch speaker in a rear ported cabinet. This combo was capable of focused, compelling bass tones across many genres, and was also sometimes used by jazz guitarists for an articulated clean tone.
  • Ac406 - Based upon a mid 1970's vintage Acoustic 406™ Bass Cabinet, voiced with the original Eminence™ 2x15 inch speakers with a center, front-facing port between the two speakers. This amp was used on countless rock and fusion sessions and is capable of some serious rumble.


  • Microphones include AKG™ 451, AT 4033, EV RE-20, Sennheiser™ 421 & 441, Shure™ SM-57 & SM-81, as well as others.
  • One of the unique features of this collection is ir's shot using a Crown™ PZM attached at key resonance points for blending with the other ir files in small doses to create the simulated rumble of a bass cabinet moving some air.

A few Axe FX 2 presets are also included to give you the idea of different amps that pair well with these cabinets as a starting point.
