I'm looking to get a new 'slimmer' cabinet for a Bandmaster Reverb head.
He and I had a really good discussion about accuracy of cabinets a few years ago. We both learned a lot. We also figured out, a lot of the builders out there (including Fender) aren't building them accurately. They're missing a lot of the important historically accurate details.
If you are looking for something non-stock, you'll need to find someone who builds custom stuff... there's a pile of folks out there.
I just transferred a new SRRI into a Mojo head cab. This is the second such job I have done for this player. No problems, well-built cabs.
I will suggest that those large Fender reverb head cabs have an interesting aspect. They are big enough for the use of internal speakers. In fact, some came from the factory with the baffle/grille board cut for speakers. Voila! a small, high-powered combo for those times when one does not need or want the large speaker cab.
Wally, I did exactly that with a Super Reverb head - I put two 8" speakers right in the front baffle, and it was outstanding. Have you ever heard any of us say this: "Wish I had never gotten rid of it".
Was thinking about doing exactly this as well to the stock cab! I don't think mine is cut for speakers though.
I am very happy with my Armadillo cab (https://amprestoration.com/). Absolutely perfect, and he does customs as well.
What 8" speakers did you use? Thanks
Hello Sllsll - I used two 8" Jensen Mod speakers.
That is only 40 watts of speaker handling capability. I take it you never expect to use the meat of that amp, right? Our friend muchxs was wont to suggest the Eminence 820H, iirc, for more handling capability. Those are 40 watts per speaker.
IF…big IF…this speaker would fit in the cab, I would want two of these….
It pumped out excellent volume for rehearsals, but I did not intend it for gigs, where my surf music needs big headroom. It was just so handy to have amp and speakers in that one head - lot of fun. Wish I had kept it.
