  • Looking for Custom Cab Builder: Part II

    I need a custom cab builder. I thought I found one, but my experience has been a nightmare to say the least. If you want to know what my experience with Mauler Cabs has been like, read this: https://forum.seymourduncan.com/foru...ster-deluxe-40.

    I need a pro. I need somebody capable of building a sealed and ported (tuned) 1x18 bass cab, a sealed non-ported 2x15 bass cab with a horn (Speakon), and eventually two 4x12 guitar cabs. All wrapped in this tolex: https://www.speakerbuildersupply.com...e-p/tpeb15.htm

    I already have the speakers picked out, I do want the cab builder to install them. I hope I can trust them to put the speakers I request inside the cab, unlike Mauler Cabs.

    The only cab builder I refuse to use right now is Mauler Cabs. I am open to any other suggestions. I have a brand new custom Orpheo bass coming around November. I want these bass cabs done before that bass gets here.

        He got back to me, he said due to physical limitations, he no longer builds large bass cabs. So, I decided to start checking ebay. I found a cab builder who sells a lot of cabs with decent ratings, seller capajnr, and I decided to ask them if they will accept my request. They said yes. So, it might happen yet!

        I can't decide between Ernie Ball casters on the bass cabs or just having custom road cases with wheels built for them. I am tempted to go with road cases...

        Other than that, the ebay seller told me to pick two of their cab designs and tell them the speakers I want. So, I just finished doing that as I'm getting ready for bed. Another long day. I hope to hear back on the bass cabs tomorrow. I expect it to be expensive with that 18 inch neo Eminence driver in the mix, but, oh well. The bass from orpheo deserves a top-notch rig to back it up. My back deserves neo mag speakers. In the end, it's a win-win.

          A little update, found a great custom cab builder! Ebay seller capajnr. I found him on Facebook as Group Pro Audio. He is already done with the first ported 1x12 bass cab featuring the Eminence Kappalite3012LF. The cab also has a tweeter via Speakon connection. Here is the photo he sent me as he is getting it ready for shipping:

                The shipping details shows 47 pounds for the whole shipment including packaging. I can deal with that for how good it looks! I just hope I chose the right woofer for tone...

                  47 lbs is not that bad. This is coming from a guy that plays a Les Paul and a Marshall half stack.

                    47lbs is a little heavier than a bag of mesquite charcoal. That's definitely not too bad.

                      Whew! It looked more like 80lbs.

                        I am definitely happy with 47 pounds! It looks durable plus light enough to carry with one arm if I had to. I imagine the upcoming 1x18 and 2x15 will be a bit heavier.

                            It already has a speaker in it. A beast of a speaker at that: this one. So, the 47 lbs includes the speaker.
