    I've decided to finally put my Bandmaster Reverb in a combo cab with a 15" EVM 15L I've had sitting in a box for way too long. I want blond Tolex and a brown grill. Who would you suggest?

    Ted Weber and Mojotone both sell cabs. No first hand experience but they have solid reputations.

    I'm not seeing where you can ask for different speaker cutouts on the Mojotone cabs.

    Lots of good builders out there, but you can't beat the quality and detail provided Peter Mather.

    i've had 3 mojotone purchased thru tubedepot. they were all excellent.

    unfortunately, cabinets are so expensive, and i can do electronics but wood-no way. and, that is why i quit building amps. couldn't sell them with that much into the amp. but, i sure do love the ones i built! ha!

    play music!

    I'll second this, I've bought two cabs from Peter, both top notch.

    The best sounding pine cab (a 12+10 speaker cab) I've heard came from him. I've seen Ampeg and fender combo amp restores he's done. Excellent work, and a very easy, cool guy to talk to.

    And I should second that shout out for Peter Mather. Another very fine builder. His 1x15 cab for my lil dawg Dlux is no doubt one reason that amp sounds so good.

    Peter Mather got back to me today. He gave me all the details without asking and his pricing is within the range of other quotes I got. I think I'm going with him. Thanks for the input everyone!

    +1 on Mather Cabinets. I’ve gotten 3 from his shop - excellent quality and competitive prices.

    +1 on Peter Mather. He built me an oversized PRRI cab that was perfect in every way. I cannot recommend his work enough.

    Another good one is JD Newell. I've bought a few from him. They are very well done, jointed pine, perfect work. Very reasonable prices. I Imagine your BF style cab would be about $250+ (?) from him. Although it's been a couple years since I bought one.

    Hands down for me it’s Jeff Earl at J Design. He’s built numerous cabs for me including one -off ideas I’ve had. Ive commented to him many times that he should increase his prices.
