    This build was just finished by Don Barry of B.A.D. Vintage styling on the grill cloth. IMHO looks crazy good. Just asking for a big tube amp or beefy SS lead sled.

    Don's builds are top notch. I especially like that he often builds with Okoume which keeps the weight down but is quite strong. All that tone and power in a 70 lb package is very impressive. I like it.

    Damn. Only complaint I have about my Dually is I wish it was a little taller, being 6'5". Although I never have problems hearing it on stage! Maybe I should order one of these. Or better yet, get a second Dually for a vertical stack... ;)

    My vote is for the second dually. Make a series cable for your TB1000 and run both at 8 Ohms. Would be crushing.

    My guitarists need to man up and get full stacks before I can even run my single Dually at full volume :p

    This is my new cab!

    Don met me in Concord, New Hampshire this afternoon to drop it off instead of me having to worry about it getting shipped. Very cool of him.

    The cab looks great!

    It's built out of Okoume, has dual handles on the top, the bottom D-cup handle, skid rails, and a kick plate, and It came out to 74.2 Lbs. according to the ol' health o' meter bathroom scale.

    Sorry, no big tube head to be had, but I've already had the ceiling shaking in my condo and my TB1000 was just turned up enough to get any volume out of it!

    I'd have been afraid to disturb the neighbors, but honestly, they deserve some payback....

    Can't wait to get this thing somewhere I can really open it up!

    They sound fantastic at low volume, but you really need to open one up to get the full effect :)

    Dons builds are as good as it gets

    Love that kickplate. Never seen anyone put checkplate on a cab yet.
