  2. Very cool! Is the top speaker high-passed to keep it from getting destroyed since it's in an open back cab?
     
  3. Hi.

    Looks great.

    I would've vented that top cab a bit less though ;).

    Regards
    Sam

    I remember this build. Everyone nagged about the open back top cab back then but if I remember correctly it's high-passed quite high, so no worries people!

    Best looking stack ever, and I've made a pretty good looking stack myself in tobacco ostrich tolex and I think the same grill cloth you used, but yours is even nicer. Cheers, Bob
     
  5. Supercool

    Thanks

    Yep, no problems whatsoever with the top cab. (drummers can hear it quite well, too)

    The rig serves more as a tasty stage monitor than anything else.

    Line out of the Tech21 into the house system for throwing volume.

    I might remember this. Did ypu seal the bottom cab and load a Basslite in it?, or that may've been someone else doing a sort of faux '59 bassman looking rig.

    In any case, super nice job. Me likey.

    Yep, Basslite's in both top and bottom.

    Total crapshoot build that worked on the first try.

    One of the most memorable TB custom/faux amp builds. Great execution. I just love how this came together.

    Dang it.... Now you have me thinking about my own faux build I have been contemplating. I want to take an old Vox Essex (with trolley) and rebuild it. New baffle cut for a 15/6 (that will be covered by the vintage Vox grill cloth) and an Aguilar TH500 sunk into the top of the cab. "Woman where is my jigsaw?"

    Faux Ten Bassman Tweed Stack is getting a little road wear, but still just cooking right along.
