Introducing the Silent Sister Isolation Recording Cab

One of the greatest challenges for home and studio recordings is how to get a great amplified guitar tone at a low level. Introducing the Rivera SilentSister recording speaker cabinet.
With the new Rivera Silent Sister, we solved the major faults of all of the other ISO Cabs in existence today. First off, they all have the microphone residing in a sealed compartment with the sound pressure from the speaker moving the microphone diaphragm like a plunger sucking water in a sink with a clogged pipe. Instead of the microphone diaphragm existing in a free air environ, it is severely distorted physically in this sealed compartment-with the result that the recorded tone sounds terrible.

Secondly, the speaker feeds into this sealed compartment, as well as being mounted with the back of the cone in a sealed compartment. This means the speaker cone is pushing into an air wall, as well as pulling back into an air wall. The result is a severe distortion of the cone shape, heat builds up in the voice coil as the motive energy cannot be released, and all of this results in a short life for the speaker as well as dreadful tone and a non-linear frequency response.

Thirdly, is the square and perpendicular angles of the internal surfaces that create substantial standing wave issues that are reflected into the sound that is recorded. All in all, there is much to improve upon.
Rivera has devised a way to relieve the air pressure issue by building an air labyrinth into the rear of the SilentSister cabinet. This labor intensive solution substantially attenuates the sound level while relieving the sealed compartment air pressure drawbacks. Also, each of the angles of the panels inside of the SilentSister are critically designed to relieve standing waves and reflections.
Bottom line is a fabulous tone, like having a great sounding speaker cabinet in free air, with the advantage of high attenuation of external sound pressure levels, and easy microphone placement.
Rivera SilentSister cabinets come standard with two pre-wired microphone goosenecks that have a panel fitted with two Neutrik XLR connectors on the back of the cabinet for easy signal connection. We also fit a Celestion G12T-75 speaker (8 Ohm) as standard (Vintage 30, Celestion K100, G12H-30 also available), and it is pre-wired into a jack panel at the back of the cabinet as well. Ruggedly built with hardwood-core plywood for years of road abuse. We also have fitted built-in casters for easy transport. Also, the door is top mounted to allow for easy mic-placement. Mounted wheels allow for easy transport.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
