Q. How long will it take for me to get my new cab?
A. Build time depends on the amount of cabinet orders ahead of yours. Generally we complete custom build orders in about 3-4 weeks. In stock cabinets ship in 24 to 72 hours.
Current Build time is about 6 to 8 Weeks +/-.
Q. I don't see exaclty the cab I'm looking for. Do you build custom cabs?
A . Yes! All my cabs are hand built one at a time. If you don't see the cab, tolex, grill cloth, etc. you are looking for, contact me and I will quote your custom cab.
Q. Do you build plywood or MDF cabs?
A. All my cabinets are built from certified Premium Grade White Pine.
Q. What is a "Floating Baffle"?
A.There are two basic types of baffles used in speaker cab construction, a floating and fixed baffle.
A. floating baffle should be made from ½” or less material and can be attached by only the four corners, as in early Fender tweeds or along two sides, secured in to cleats by screws or bolts. The baffle is not tight to the sides of the cab. This type of baffle resonates in harmony with the speaker(s) as the cabinet or combo is pushed, it comes alive and the cabinet becomes part of the tone.
A fixed baffle is secured tight to the side of the cabinet on all four sides with screws or bolts in to cleats or mortised directly in to the sides of the cabinet. Generally, they are made from at least ½” material and more common ¾”. This type of baffle is more inert, with most of the tone coming directly from the speaker.
I like to build my open back cabs with a true floating baffle, not touching the sides of the cabinet and secured along two sides. On Cabinets with closed back panels, I will attach the baffle on all four sides. Cabinets with convertible (open/closed) or oval open backs can be constructed either way based on a variety of factors and preference.
Q. If I want to get my cab quicker can I pay for a rush order?
A. I build all my cabs in the order they were received. Please check the In Stock page if you are looking to get a custom cab fast.
