    it's finally here!

    the new cab i ordered made for my scx2 with a 12" speaker baffle :)

    Brian Holt makes and sells these on ebay

    i love the look and the tilt legs

    i wish i taken a pic of the back with both panels on

    he did a fabulous job on the joinery and tolex application (?term for that skill?)

    the joints and seams are right 'n tight..

    waiting on some military spec tubes from brent jessee (recommended here)

    the cannabis rex 12" speaker is not as loud as i'd hoped; but it is what it is

    i may sell the speaker and reload with something else

    i'm hoping the new tubes will boost the tone and volume

    i'm loving that i'll be carrying this 28 lb. cutie instead of the 48 lb. hotrod deluxe

    Love it! I just flipped mine because I fell bass-ackward into a PRRI, but they're really nice amps with better speakers. Maybe a Emi L'il Texas might fit the bill. Congrats!

    i'll look into it... there are SO many speakers and you rarely can know what they'll sound like with your amp unless you can plug into a loaded cab.. sadly, they're not returnable
    congrats on the prri as well

    Not every speaker is the right one for everybody, but the rare occasions I’ve dimed my PRII with a 12” Cannabis Rex make we wonder HOW LOUD DO YOU WANT? :D

    Looks good, hope you get it sounding good too!

    Djimiwrey, you might want to look at some tweed amps that have been covered in the manner to which we are accustomed....that is, the tweed is arranged so that all of the dark threads are at the same angle and meet where two pieces of tweed join. The diagonal lines are usually described as being on a line from 10 to 2 on a clock face. Yes, it matters.
