5F1 (Champ) through a 12 inch ceramic speaker...who's done it, is it worth it?

    To follow-up...I did it and it sounds great. I gained a bit more clean headroom and a fuller bottom end. I think it works better with pedals and the sound has a charm all it's own. I lost the traditional "quacky" character that I could pull from the little 8 inch speaker and smaller cab, and I miss that a little. I've moved the chassis back and forth a couple times and I have decided to keep it in the bigger cab. And it looks great too.

    No, I found a guy on eBay who advertised bigger cabs for Pro Jr's. I found that the specs for Pro Jr's and 5F1's were very similar. I emailed him and he happily made me a cab that fit my desired chassis. He doesn't do any drilling, so I had to take care of that part of the job.

    Bigger speaker/cab

    I took my SS Tech 21 TM10 cab that was coming apart (particle board) and replanted it in a little bigger pine cab with a ten inch Weber. Covered it in tweed and it rocks way louder/cleaner than the stock 8" that was in there.
