    I am so jealous.

    I considered doing that; looking in the mojotone catalogue.

    Good GOD that's cool! I've got a '65 Princeton Reverb that MuchXS did his brilliant thing to, but I've lawyers wondered what it would sound like into a 2x12 cab. Looks incredible, great job!

    Looks great, congrats! I had plans to rehouse my PRRI into a head cab with matching 210, but never got around to it. What speakers?

    ah, I knew somebody would ask about the speakers...but I don't know. I never even thought to ask and I've never had the back off the cabinet. so all I can say is "Good ones!"

    WOW!!! That is amazing! How well does the 12-15 watts drive the two 12's? What about a 2x10 cab?

    Do the 12" speaker take away the fartiness the Princeton is famous for in some 'extreme' settings?

    I always thought a 12 incher would handle that better, but so many people say it's inherent to the Princeton circuit design.

    I don't think I've ever had it above 7, so i'm not sure about the fartiness. tomorrow when i'm here alone, i'll crank it and find out.

    Mine has a 12" Jensen AlNiCo...
    I got to crank it up to 10, and I didn't hear any farty-ness that I recall. But I may have adjusted the eq settings to accommodate.

    I have to adjust the eq depending on volume setting to maintain an even tonality (too spikey, vs. too bass-ey). I guess that is what they mean when they say the controls are interactive.

    Why do your lawyers care what it sounds like?

    Oh. That's cool.

    One of the things I dislike about the PRRI is the 10" speaker. This deals with that issue.
