    Does anyone know where I could get plans for building a larger cab for a Blues Jr.?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you, Shepherd. I was beginning to feel like the Maytag repairman.

    I'll check into that.

    IDK of any plans out there, but you can measure the chassis, tubes' extension, and speaker clearance - then you could design and build one to fit what you need.

    What are you planning on? A head? Larger/more speakers?

    I just wanted a slightly larger cabinet with a bit more depth; I've read somewhere (maybe here) that it helps with the "boxiness" inherent in the Blues Jr. Even more than that, a cab made out of either pine or a good hardwood (I've got some nice cherry in the garage) would be better thatn the particle board they're made from...and look a lot purtier!

    I figured I could design something, but I wanted to see what, if any, plans existed.

    I'd like to see something like a Blues Junior chassis in a Super Reverb cabinet BUT with only one 12. Or a 4x10 Blues Deville cab again with only one 12" speaker. I know this would sound good from an experiment I did at one time. Huge baffle board, maybe made of 1/4 or 5/16 inch ply, one twelve inch rippin speaker, and an open back.............look out Momma!!!!

    I reckon a Blues Jr would sound pretty good in one these cabs using a 12" and a 10". Nice looking cab too.

    blues jr a bit smaller tha deluxe

    the blues Jr is a bit smaller than a tweed deluxe 1X12
    apologies for the poor phot quality but my Blues jr is sitting on top of a tweed deluxe I built to original size spec...also the Paisley cab top right is to original spec.
    they are a few inches wider...not sure if that translates to sonic difference though...

    Mojotone makes a Bjr cab that is the same size as the 5E3 Tweed Deluxe cab. I plan on getting one someday for my Bjr. Here's an ebay seller that has them a little cheaper than Mojo, probably a volume discount.

    If you are looking to get rid of that boxy tone, look up billm mods. He's a forum member here and on many gear related forums. He has some mods that take care of that boxy tone. It worked for me on mine and it's still in the original partical board cab.
