I wanted to drop you a line telling how much I dig my new Rocket Cab Memphis 1X12 loaded w/ the Eminence Legend. When I pulled it out of the packing box, I couldn't believe how light it was and smell of pine was intoxicating! When I plugged my 30 watt Peavey Classic head into it, it sounded bigger and tighter than before. The workmanship is top notch! It's really beautiful and I can't thank you enough!

|After looking for a month to find someone to build me a custom 1x12 cabinet for my vintage Bandmaster head, Paul was the only one I could find who would do it at a reasonable price. Not only that, but he offered free shipping and didn't charge any extra to change the dimensions.
Paul was great with communication. He always answered my emails right away and kept in the touch throughout the build. He even sent me a few pictures before shipping it.
Upon receiving the cab, I was pleasantly surprised at how light it was, even with a speaker in it. Very easy to carry from gig to gig. This cab was exactly what I was looking for. It sounds and looks GREAT. The wood even had and still has that fresh cut smell. Wonderful! If you're looking for a practical, affordable solution to your custom cabinet woes, Rocket Cab is it! After gigging with it for the past few weeks, I am even more pleased and have gotten many compliments on the look and especially the tone of my rig. Very happy!

|I was very impressed with both the build quality and the service. The cabinet arrived when predicted and was well-packed. The cabinet is very light, which is a plus, and workmanship is clean. I usually play an older Gibson ES 175 (yes, in a rock band), and it produces a lot of low end. So far the 2X10 seems to tame that a bit, and the cabinet also sounds very good combined with my 12 inch cabinets.|

|The cabinet is very resonant and extremely lightweight. My only complaint is the rather thin back panels.|
Rocket Cab Chicago 2x10 is Pure Excellence

On President's Day of 2013, I placed an order for a 2x10 speaker cab with a company I had been reading GREAT reviews about for quite some time after an unsuccessful attempt to find a long discontinued 2x10 Fender speaker cab to run in tandem with a number of my 2x12 combos. There's nothing I like better than a combination of these kind of speaker setups to give my bottom end it's rib cage vibrating goodness along with the bite and punch for the top end to shine through with the 10's. I found everything I wanted with the Rocket Cab Chicago 2x10 enclosure from Soundsrite Audio. As a bonus price for me - I ordered mine on President's Day and took advantage of free shipping due to their holiday shopping offer which saved me an additional $30, so with an excellent quality built cab and a nice discounted price - this was perfect all around!
Follow the link here from my band's website to see pictures of my cab (initially with Jensen CQ10's installed).
I have a variety of additional speakers and will in the weeks ahead be switching these out with some other configurations to tweak to my tastes and my gear setups. I am so pleased with the build quality and the tone factor of this cab that it will be a fun ton quest to enjoy along the way. Thanks very much to Soundsrite Audio for an excellent quality cab and fast shipping and communication before and well after the sale, Rare and appreciated follow through all the way around. I highly recommend these folks for all your speaker cab needs - no worries and excellent service! Rock on! Rev
"I ordered this cab on a recommendation from a friend, who like me is a complete tone snob. I got the cab, and it looked great, but was missing one of the options that I had ordered. I emailed Paul and let him know, and he showed why he has a good reputation. He made things right, and then some. It's great to see that there are still some people that put customer service and satisfaction over all else! I equipped the cab with two Warehouse Guitar Speakers 10C/S speakers, and the cab sounds great. Not too boomy, great mids, and crystal clear highs. Can't wait till the speakers are broken in. The craftmanship of the cabinet looks great. I ended up replacing the wiring that ships with it for some higher grade audio cable, but I'm sure the standard cables are good enough for most discriminating ears."
"This is my cab and I couldn't be more happy. I was worried how pine would sound and I'm shocked how great this cab sounds and how light it is (17.5 LBS. If your thinking of pine, go for it. Its lighter and sounds better, by a lot. The only thing this cab might not like, is metal IMHO but from blues to classic rock this thing kills. I've had Bogner, oversized 2x12, Marshall 1936 2x12 (open and closed back- custom), THD 2x12, and Mesa open back 2x12. Pauls cab is lighter and better in tone. The rich high end and crystal clear mids with no flub. I sound like a commercial but, I'm sold on Pine and Paul's craftsmanship, and customer service. Paul took the time to phone me(twice) and several e-mails, to make shure, everything would be right. This company is number one in my book, for custom pine guitar cabs."
"I was lucky enough to pick up a Goodsell Custom 33 head w/ verb and trem in brown ostrich tolex and I wanted a 2x12 cab to match it. I had seen the Rocket Cab ads on Craigslist, and had visited the website, I was impressed with what I saw and contacted Paul. He was great to deal with from the start, I told him what I was looking for and sent him pics of the head. He matched the ostrich tolex exactly, and the design specs came out perfectly. I absolutely love the diagonal 2x12 configuration, it truly is the perfect 2x12 in my opinion. The sound is exceptional, raw and organic with tight bass and smooth high end. Loaded with a celestion gold and a g12h30 ... they haven't fully broken in and I may play around with different speakers. One of the great things about this design, it's very easy to swap speakers. I am very pleased with my purchase and would absolutely recommend Paul and his fine workmanship to anyone ."
" It was a pleasure dealing with Paul on my Chicago 2-12. This cab is a solid, well built tone monster that sounds fantastic. You can tell Paul takes his time and cares about his craft. Everything was cleanly put together, tolex and grille cloth are nicely done. If you are in the market for a cab look no further."
"If you are looking for a great cab for your guitar head, solid pine is the way to go. The cab I got from Paul is very solid and very well built! "
"I wanted a cab to match my Fender SS 22 with blonde tolex and oxblood cloth. None of them out there were quite the right size. Paul made me a wider version of the Memphis, and it looks perfect! Sounds even better! That plus the best service I've ever had. If you are looking for a cab, this is the place to go!"
"The cab is very high quality, extremely well made and sounds great too. It was affordable too. The service from Paul was top notch; he kept in touch every step of the way."

"This thing kicks some serious ASS !!!! I'm absolutely blown away at the difference pine makes. Let me know where I can rant a post about this cab. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY !!!"
Rocket Cab Chicago 2X12
Thanks so much !!!"I love this cab. I have 2 WGS C10/s speakers in there for a 4ohm load at 150W handling capacity. Running a Dual Showman or a Two-Rock (85 – 100 watts) through it.
It sounds huge and takes pedals very well. The cab is lightweight and a perfect high wattage solution without being too big and heavy. Thanks for the good communication and for meeting your quoted lead time."

"I recently purchased Rocket Cab's Atlanta Model in a 1x10" configuration. It arrived on schedule and looks beautifully done exactly as expected. The finger joint work is great and using pine for the enclosure makes it much lighter than MDF. Of course, all this is moot if it doesn't sound good ...
I hooked up a 10" and let 'er rip. I love the sound of your cab! Did a shoot out with a factory cab loaded with an identical speaker vs. the Rocket Atlanta. Even put it up against a single 12. Your cab just has a truly great tone to it. I think the 10" depth is somewhat responsible. That and the pine box.
I do demo recordings for Nashville songwriters and own or have access to some excellent amps, speakers and cabs (65 Amps Lil Elvis, Vox AC30, Alnico Blues, various other Celestions, multiple vintage Fender Blackfaces, Tweeds, etc, many guitars, etc, etc). The Rocket Atlanta cab turned a Peavey Backstage into a serious contender for a recording amp. Now, please be aware that I tweaked the dimensions a little (17"x15"x10") so your mileage may vary ... but I couldn't be more pleased. Paul, you did a great job."

"I got the 2x10 blond open-back Chicago cab recently and I'm very pleased with it so far! It's super light weight and sounds great. I've got it loaded with a Celestion Gold and a Greenback. The build quality is excellent and it was definitely a deal for the money it cost."
