    That’s awesome! I’m looking for a proper small speaker cabinet to go with my Tiny Terror (amp head) Clone and this will be more cost effective and just better than me going to Rona. Thanks for the link!

    What a great idea, I'keep that in mind. But won't you get a constant hum out of it? :)

    Nah, you'd just need a little special gear to do your hum-busting...

    In exchange, you could really find your inner Billy Gibbons (or is it Jerry Garcia)?

    Cool. Post pics when you get it ^ please.

    From what I've seen, most of these mail-order hives are made with nice-enough but not "cello grade" wood. A full hive is really heavy (100 pounds or more sometimes), so structural integrity is a must. However cosmetics are not the most important thing, and most hives are painted as you've probably seen.

    I’ll post some photos once it arrives. It’s a flat pack, unassembled 4 pieces with finger joints. It’s perfect timing too because I need to build a speaker cab.

    This looks like a really good option! Think I’ll look into local availability... thou the rest of the amp parts may be harder to find than the box...
