    Pretty sweet looking. Does that cab have casters by any chance (or maybe the option to add them)?
  3. My god, man!

    I have to know how much something like that costs so I can spend the next year saving up for it!?

    It has casters on it. The roll great and are super stable. I was worried it would be top heavy when rolling it what with the lightweight speaker but it's not.

    The whole thing is easily lifted by one person and fits no problem in the back seat of my camry with room to spare.

    I think Ben's gonna be putting out more information tomorrow but he gave me the thumbs up to show it off a bit. We've been working at this for several months tweaking the design to get the best sound. This thing is beastly with a huge variety of tone available. The mid boost really lets the OD channel growl.

    Also the normal toggles that the meatsmoke has are push/pull pots on this.

    That is seriously one of the nicest bass amps I have seen in a loong time!
    What a fabulous idea, recreating a Flip-top with this builder's style & technology.

    The cabinet looks amazing.
    Can you give some specs about the tube array?
    Man, that is so cool.

    Oh. My. Goodness. This gives me a serious case of GAS. Any details you can provide (price, availability, options, tone)?

    I'm glad you all like it as much as I do.

    The tube array is in line with the standard meatsmoke but dialled back for the 100w.

    The eq stack it's also the traditional meatsmoke. Where this diverges is the mid boost on the OD channel, the Jensen DI, the kill switch that cuts the speaker but keeps the DI active.

    The tube cage and badge and stuff are all one off.

    This represents several months of experimenting. :)
