    I wanted to share...I have no commercial link with Scot Dixon, I am a customer only and have encouraged them to join TB as a commercial member & bass player.

    Context...I have a bad back and always looking for light gear....I ordered a Scott Dixon triple case for 2 basses & Acoustic (6 or 4 string)...have been using for 7 months & cant do without it! They are fantastic quality, easy to handle, light & I don't have to carry 3 bulky bass case's and the case is on stage, so no stands .

    John Dixon constructs his kit from 1.2mm aircraft aluminium, all hand made so small batch / custom made.

    John delivered and mentioned he made bass cab's, the weight was amazing but not quite what I wanted (I was using Green boy & Quilter 2x10)

    I wanted to retain the quality of sound of the existing cabs but light weight & easy to handle (Celestion 1x12 BN12-300S with compression driver) that could easily go from wedge to straight depending on venues & could be stacked if 2 cabs used. I gave aprox' dimensions & John designed & built 2 prototypes, 6 months trial & !!!! (see pic 's) which John, I and a my local gear provider (bass player) tested with various amps basses & tracks. The first production unit arrived last week with all the changes suggested, we have all used and are delighted...Solid (ridged & sealed) deep clear and open sound. This will always be subjective & no its not a trouser flapper. The cab is ~11kg & lid ~1.5kg.

    This will be my cab of choice and my back is delighted

    Interesting. Neat look -- the guitar cases look neat, too, though the idea of transporting instruments that way is new to me.
