A word about Vintage Fender Cabinet Construction. Info by Greg Gagliano. (Amp Historian)
"From circa 1972 to the early 1980s, the cabinets were no longer made from solid pine boards, but cheaper laminated, multi-piece pine boards.
Each side of the cabinet was made from several pieces about three or four inches wide, glued side-to-side, to make up a plank the depth of the cabinet. These laminated cabs were not finger joined, but rabbet joined.
The baffle board on these rabbet joined cabinets was mortised into the sides and bottom (i.e. - not removable) to hold the whole thing together. That’s why these post-1972 cabinets have the grill cloth stretched across a frame that is attached by a velcro-like system to the baffle.
CBS almost certainly went to this construction method to save money, though at the expense of overall quality."

I needed a matching 1x12" for a new amp, and this fits the bill exactly. The sound is great, and the craftsmanship is fantastic. However the best thing is the weight; after lugging an oversize 2x12" this cab is a dream. Highly recommended.

Looks great, smells great and sounds amazing!!! Loaded with a Celestion Gold, this is quickly becoming the go to cab of my studio. Excellent craftsmanship, good price and fast turnaround! 5 stars all around!

I couldn't be more pleased with the Memphis Cab! The build quality is excellent, and it's evident that Paul takes a lot of pride in his workmanship. The fit and finish are first rate. I've already gigged with it, and the tone I get with the Celestion Gold is so much more defined, articulate, and rich compared to my old cab. Paul is great to work with, and he gives excellent advice on custom options. I highly recommend the Memphis. Thank you Paul!

Paul builds a very nice cabinet. He was very responsive to my questions and did everything he said he would.
The cabinet is very light and sturdy.

I wanted to update you on the Memphis Cabinet. It sounds fantastic! The workmanship is superb. I appreciate the suggestions you made regarding the floating baffle. It does seem to have improved the frequency response in addition to greater resonance. The Eminence Reignmaker Speaker is still breaking-in, but first returns are good, though the speaker cabinet is providing a good playing level in my studio without using much of the attenuation control on the back of the speaker. I did try it with my more powerful Suhr Badger 30 and found, with the attenuation, I was able to obtain tones that were not before possible. Thanks again for your expert help and keeping me informed during the build. I would recommend your products highly.

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! Mike Clinco

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!

Searched the WEB and found many custom cabinets. Was also interested in an Eminence C-Rex. I got both here. The cabinet is like the one pictured on the web site. Blonde covering with the Oxblood/Gold Stripe grill cloth. Standard open back. It looks great! Easy to carry. Very solid. Most of all, sounds awsome! Paul Robison is very easy to work with. Emails were answered promptly and he even provided pictures! Great cabinet, good service, at reasonable price. Not to mention it has a pretty cool sticker. Glad I pulled the trigger on this one!

Let me tell you -
The guy who is doing the tuck and roll says he wants to buy one of your cabs - that is how impressed he was!
