Project Information

This cabinet was built to match the all-tube head I had made (but did not do myself). I am pleased with how it turned out (matches the head, looks good and sounds good). It has two 10" Celestion speakers of two different types. I have wired it to be used as one speaker, the other… or both.

Made entirely of 1/2" Baltic birch plywood, reinforced corners, tolex over the plywood, 3M spray adhesive, etc. The lower two back panels are removable for open back sound or as shown closed back.

Nothing like the smell of contact cement in the morning!

Great job, David! It looks like it came right off the showroom floor.

Super COOL work!

Very nice!

Did you have to modify the electronics in the switchable feature?

YES!

No, the amp has outs for 4, 8 and 16 ohm. The cab plate has three inputs, one at 8 ohm, the other at 8 ohm and both at 16 ohm (series). No switching, just have to make sure to plug into the right amp output.

Almost makes me want to learn how to play a guitar - so I can build one like it.

Everybody that has at least two good fingers on their fretting hand and can hear tones should at least have an acoustic laying around to noodle with.

No time to start a new stress relieving hobby like the present!

Nice work. Every time I see an amp here I want to build one. My bass head and cabinet are good, my acoustic amp is good enough but my electric guitar amp is an el cheapo from the pawn shop. The only thing good about it… it has a real reverb. I'm partial to rat fur to cover the cab. LOL

Or just spray it with contact cement and let the cats and dogs get to it!

I just checked out your projects, Texcaster. Interesting luthiery!
