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."

This cab sounds absolutely incredible with my Fat Jimmy amp. The pine and floating baffle resonate just enough to make things feel alive. It is expressive and responsive from bedroom levels to cranked stage volume. The craftsmanship is second to none and Paul is a pleasure to deal with. I will be buying another cab from him in the future. Highly recommend.
This is the fifth cabinet I have ordered from Paul, and once again it is stunning. Paul builds the best cabinets I know of. I think the floating baffle, the shape of the box and back, and the quality of pine and the workmanship must have something to do with it. And they are beautiful as well.
Paul was great to work with and fast to deliver. The cabinet is flawless, and sounds great!
Very high quality build. I had paul load it with a George alassandro 12in speaker. Just the sound i was looking for. Paul was very good to deal with he always answered or returned my calls promptly. The service was great and the quality was great. I will use them again for future needs and I will recommend them to others.
A first rate cabinet and a smooth transaction with excellent, friendly communication from start to finish. I will recommend Rocket Cabs to my friends.
Ordered a cab and Celestion Neo 12 to mate with a Quilter Mach Pro HD. Less money than the Quilter extension, terrific quality of build. Also using with an old Mesa Mark 4. Stacks beautifully. Great job, Paul
Paul knocked it out of the park again for me! This is my third rocket cab and I am really really pleased! The construction is top notch (as usual) and most importantly the tone is just what I was looking for. I loaded my new Memphis with a 12" Eminence Canis Major and the cab sounded great right out of the gate. Some really nice touches on this build including black on black aesthetics, upgraded sewn handle, silver piping and the 3-piece convertible back panels for sonic flexibility. The cabinet is fairly large and resonate and will accommodate any 12" speaker out there. I've only ever worked with Paul for my custom cabs and I've got no reason to look elsewhere. I'm really happy!
What can I say? The word"boutique" gets thrown around frivolously these days, but Paul Robison made me a 1st class speaker cabinet and his pride extends to service that makes one feel 100% assured that the product is being manufactured, sold and shipped by folks who care about the merch as much as you do. Bravo Paul, and thanks!
I love the look and finish on this cabinet. Works great with my new 12" speaker. I I highly recommend this model and builder. He was great to deal with and very prompt in his responses. If you want the best at a great price, then this is the place to go! Joe in Mobile
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.
