Cloning a Bag End S-15

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Count Bassie, Nov 17, 2013.

  1. I had a pair, am now broke, and want to see if I can get very close to the beautiful, warm-sounding and solid 'push' I used to get out of a pair of these. I have the chops and a place to do it, the only issue is drivers...

    Anyone have experience cloning this venerable cab? How did you find the results?

    Thanks for replies, your time...

    I don't think you're going to get there without the OEM drivers. Building cabs to save money generally doesn't work so well. I would keep an eye out here at GC for used, they come up fairly often and you would be hard pressed to build one for cheaper, IMO.
  3. Ok, sounds like a pretty good answer. I actually have a line on a pair, but I thought maybe I could cheep-out. Had to ask the question!
