Excelent quality! I am very happy with the cabinet.
This is my second purchase from Paul. In addition to this speaker cab, Paul built a new "Plug and Play" back panel for my existing 2x10, and re-covered a '64 Showman head cab that had seen better days all to match. The work was flawless as expected, and at very reasonable cost.
I will buy again from Paul when the need arises!
I recently had my Matchless Lightning Reverb combo with 2X10 speakers converted to separate head and speaker cabinets. I purchased the head cabinet off of The Gear Page.
Then I called Paul at Rocket Cab in Dawsonville, Georgia (www.rocketcab.com) to check on getting one of his cabinets built for the conversion. He agreed to cover the head (even though I did not buy it from him) and build/cover one of his excellent pine cabs.
I had purchased one of his pine cabinets about a year ago and it was certainly a great sounding cab. I am not too far from his shop so I took him my head cabinet and we discussed all the particulars. Instead of Tolex, I wanted a smooth faux leather covering like Matchless uses. Paul contacted one of his suppliers and found the perfect Taurus Wine covering.
The turnaround time on the cabs Paul builds is very reasonable. Finally the day came and I loaded up the Matchless combo and went to pick up the new cabinets. Paul removed the head from the combo, installed it (and the Reverb tank) in the new head cabinet. He also fixed a minor problem with the Reverb tank while he was at it; I only thought I was getting decent 'verb before. Now it is so much better! Paul swapped the speakers for me and I was ready to hit the road. Couldn't wait to get it home, connect the cables and hit that first power chord. The new cabinets sound and look awesome!!!
Make sure you check out RocketCab.com if you need some new cabinets. If you've never had a pine cab before, you don't know what you're missing.
I recently contacted Paul about building me another guitar cabinet (first one was a 1x12) and I specifically wanted it a little deeper. I'm running the 2x12 loaded cab
with Eminence GA-SC64 George Alessandro Signature 12s (killer speakers!) through a Fuchs Full House 50 head!. We decided that the dimensions needed to be big enough
so the head could sit comfortably on the enclosure. This rig ROCKS! The cab can be run mono or stereo, being able to choose 4, 8 or 16 ohm. This is an awesome feature .
The craftsmanship that Paul puts into these cabinets is phenomenal. They not only look beautiful, they sound amazing! If you like working one on one with the owner
of a small company that really cares about customer service, Soundsrite Audio is your definite choice.
All these positive reviews -- this can't be real, can it? After working with Paul and Rocket Cabs, I can assure you that the glowing reviews that you find on this page are all true.
This is a business that really understands good customer service; there is communication at all stages of the build process, responses to questions are nearly instantaneous, and progress reports (with photos) are provided on a regular basis.
I ordered a custom built cabinet with an open/closed back option for an older Marshall amp. Some specifics: (1) Paul helped me select the right speaker for the type of music I generally play; (2) He searched for a hard-to-match tolex color that corresponded to the discontinued tolex on my amp, looking at several options to get the best one, (3) build quality is great; (4) sound quality is great (I can't wait until the speaker is actually broken in, because it is already good); (5) even the shipping packaging was done right and carefully and my cabinet arrived within a day of shipment.
Prices are competitive (or better) than off-the-rack cabinets. I wish other businesses operated this way.
Overall a great experience and I will recommend Rocket Cabs to my musician friends.
After exhaustively researching where to get a custom cabinet built I found Rocket Cabs and Paul Robison.
I wanted a pine construction with neodymium speakers and all appointments to match my Blackstar head. Paul took a lot of time on the phone and email making sure the details were correct and made many suggestions along the way.
His prices are very fair and the workmanship I find top notch. This cabinet sounds and looks great! I am very pleased and expect to work with him again in the near future on an second build.
I will try to keep this short and sweet.
1. Outstanding customer service...seriously, the best I have ever received in regards to "musical instruments and gear".
2. Beautiful fit and finish to the cabinets...you will not find better.
3. Phenomenal sound...these cabinets will make you wish you had bought one YEARS AGO.
Do yourself a favor and order one of these cabs right now...you will not regret it.
I had Rocket cabs build a Chicago 2x12 for me. This thing is incredible! My guitar buddys and I are always A/B ing gear to listen to the tonal differances. We A/B ed the Chicago 2x12 cab against my Marshall 1982 4x12 and could not beleive our ears. We all picked the Chicago cab over the Marshall 4x12. Same speakers at the same ohmage setting. The pine cab just killed it in terms of woodiness and clarity. We were shocked at the bottom end also. It had better clarity, note definition,and since it was an open back it just enveloped us in it's tone. I will never go back to a closed back cab and will never go back to birch cabs again. Pine is king!!! Thanks Paul for the great work !! I also ordered a 1x12 to go with my Orange OR15 head. Sorry orange. Rocket Cabs has got you beat here!! Thanks for helping me to achieve the best tone of my life Rocket Cabs!! Rock On!! Steve Storey. Armed and Indigo.
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 .
