Apologies if this question isn't technical enough for the Amp Tech forum. I'm due soon to receive an Allen Amp (Accomplice Jr with some additions), which I am hoping will become my main all-purpose amp for many years. Looking for big-boy Fender tones in a highly portable and top quality format. I'm going to build my own combo cab (around 20x20, just big enough to play around with a few different speaker combos) - I'm comfortable with the overall building of the cab but I have a few decisions to make: I have some nice straight 3/4 Cherry boards and a little bit of walnut, enough to build a very pretty cabinet, cherry with a walnut "skunk stripe" down the middle. I know that it will weigh a bit more than pine, but A) I already have it, B) it's probably easier to make a fancy cab and slap a clear finish on it than to learn tolexing at this point, and C) I'd rather not buy stuff if I don't need to, seeing as I have a shed full of nice wood. I have a great source for 15 mil Baltic Birch Ply, the good stuff, and I could easily get all the nice pine that I want, but again either one costs money and a trip out the lumberyard. SO: Is an open back cherry cab going to sound worse than a pine or good plywood cab, all else equal? And any guesses as to how much more the thing will weigh by Cherry (the walnut will just be a 1" stripe). Finally, which would you do and why?
