We use only Solid Pine: Certified Premium White Pine
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."

Paul, When my custom Memphis 1x12 cabinet arrived it was packed very well as promised. The strong sent of fresh Premium White Eastern Pine cabinet was very pleasing it is also very light in weight. The New Custom "Dancing" speaker cloth was dead-on outstanding! Its a black inter-weaved grill cloth with Silver sparkle thread which gives it a "Dancing" effect when light shines on it. The "T" nuts that you installed for the speaker mounting worked out fine for my EVM-12L speaker. The Fender like counter sunk chrome amp corners & Black Strap handle was excellent hardware to include the Switchcraft input jack and wire harness for the speaker. The Smooth Black Tolex vinyl match my Mesa Boogie Mark Five 25 perfectly. The tone of the Memphis 1x12 cabinet with the floating-baffle board and that speaker sounded like an SR71 at take off. It was very smooth, the clear tones had a bell effect and in the overdrive mode it would cut like a knife. To top things off the work you did to my front Boogie amp panel with the matching speaker grill cloth was absolutely a closing statement of true "hand Made". Your "attention to detail" is what makes your shop the pinnacle of all "Custom" shops. The skills you have besides your work ethics is you listen to your customers carefully and also make good suggestion's for cabinet look and sound presences.
I have only one word for you Paul: EXCEPTIONAL
Word of mouth will pass through this cabinet and Looks and Tones speak for themselves. Highly recommended.

The cabinet is beautiful, sounds great, well-built, and I love that I could specify everything: dimensions, color and type of tolex, corners, feet, etc. Paul is easy to work with, and I wish more companies were as good at communicating with the customer. I will not hesitate to order from him again if I need another cabinet.

Paul is a joy to deal with. The cabinet was built to my exact specifications. I've been looking for an open-back solution for rehearsals and smaller gigs. I wanted it to be light, a bit unique, and to not break the bank. This thing delivers in spades. I'll be using it for a long, long time. I would buy from him again, definitely. If you're thinking about it, pull the trigger.

My new Memphis 1x12 is a work of art in terms of its perfect construction and its beautiful tone. It makes every amp I own (including SFPR, BFPR, BFVR, SFDR, BF Bassman) and every speaker I own (Weber, Emi, Celestion, Jensen, etc.) sound great.
My Memphis 1x12 is a terrific value to be sure. But if you seek superior materials, elegant design, top-notch craftsmanship, and a gorgeous, responsive tone in a solid wood cabinet, you will not find a better product regardless of price. And Paul is a real pleasure to deal with in all respects. Highest recommendation.

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
