Pics speak for themselves. Mark did an amazing job on this!
I'm building a 215 Slim right now.Love the cool detail work. How much does it weigh if I might ask?
That looks awesome! It reminds me of steampunk
Nothing like a good 215. And that one looks awesome. Kinda miss the big cab days.
If he only used gears for grill covers!
Sweet cab though. BNA really stepped it up!
really nice cab.
This cab is Baltic Birch, so not the lightest, but we did look to shave weight with the hardware and the OEM aluminum skids...it's somewhere between 73-77lbs. Somewhere around that...I don't really trust my scale with the bigger cabs With Italian Poplar you could prolly get it down quite a bit, but I do love how sturdy this wood is and the owner of this cab, Chris Rhoades is a touring pro. This cab needs to go off and on a trailer 150+ shows a year
I can't think of a commercial cab that would come even close to the performance of this that doesn't weigh twice as much
I'm actually working on a steampunk design...this one is pointing in that direction though for sure
Nice touches, man. Looks like a real clean, pro job. You guys do the colors there or can or can you order hardware like that? Always cool to see stuff outside of basic black.
Thank you! The skid rails are OEM...they're made out of lightweight aluminum, then cut and shaped and powder coated, as was all the hardware.
Powder coat and duratex....cool. Roadworthy stuff that should stay looking nice for a long time. The thing's so pretty though, I'd still be wanting at least like a canvas slip cover or something for it if not a heavy vinyl one. Or will this thing be living in a roadcase when it's not on stage? You can't just leave it sitting in a roadcase tray on stage when it looks like that ya know.
Chris said they're having a roadcase made for it...thank goodness!
Love the color on that, very unique and stylish =)
So that's going to Chris, eh? Only fitting that the prettiest dude in rockabilly has a pretty cab like that
Haha! He is man-pretty aint he? I'm gonna make him a matching amp rack case for it as soon as I can...may as well keep going with this concept
How does this thing handle with those two straps on the side?
The centered top corner handle and two strap handles work great. Remember, it's really light
Absolutely sick. The only way that cab could be made sexier would be to include nubile, twin she-roadies in spandex body suits that match the cab's color scheme. Well-done!
