    Recently acquired this 1977 Woodson 2x15 cabinet. Circumstances prevented a test before buying and taking it home. As usual, I couldn't wait to get the back off to check on the speakers condition and dates. As I laid it down on the take apart area, I heard an odd sounding "clump" from the cab. What - is the speaker loose and moving around or something? After removing the 22 back panel screws and propping it open like a casket, I took a peak and went WTH. Were my eyes playing tricks on me after a long day? Was I having one of those weird dreams? After deciding that neither of those were the case, I surveyed the situation. Keep in mind that this is the 2x15 cab that's semi chambered with a large opening from side to side in the middle of the cab dividing the two speakers. To my dismay, there was a ton of "stuff" scattered about the bottom chamber. Amazingly, the contents included the following items:

    - program/set list that was broken down into hourly songs running from 10Am to 4PM.
    - arrest warrant for some kind of gimmick situation dated April 3, 1982.
    - old silver mic cord.
    - black curly guitar cord that still works.
    - large Boss TU-60 tuner with pitch, calibration etc. that still works.
    - childs clip on tie.
    - single beat up wooden drum stick.
    - an umbrella that still works.
    - a whisk broom that still works.
    - 9 volt battery from 2009 that doesn't work.
    - various candy rappers.
    - tissues.
    - guitar plug end labeled "Piano."
    - finally, what appears to a couple of condom looking type articles.

    Simply amazing!

    The speakers were original Eminence from 1977.

    After removing said items and making a few adjustments, the cab sounds great.

    My intentions are to retire the cab from the storage business and use only for thumpin' the bass.

    Here you go. :)

    I find "condom looking type articles" concerning. The clip-on tie also weirds me out for some reason.

    Maybe some kids used it as a "trash can" over the years?

    My advice: Disinfect and enjoy!

    I did do a good cleaning. Never know where that stuff has been. Enjoyment is fine.


    Some weird evidence for sure. It is a fine looking and sounding cab.

    All that crap will sell on ebay. Call it vintage. Keep the condoms- always handy.

    I'm looking for just the right wording for the sales. Condoms never go bad - or do they?? ;)
