Construction Details

Only the highest grade, genuine 5/8” Baltic birch plywood is used for the entire build, including back panels and baffle. Cabinets are front-loading with back panels permanently in place for a clean look and stronger overall construction.

Locking dado/rabbet joints are used in shell construction for an extremely strong cabinet that can take a lifetime of use on the road. The baffle is “floating”, attached to screwed-and-glued hardwood cleats with quality cabinet screws. Only attaching the baffle to top and bottom cleats lets the baffle breathe a little bit under high volume and captures some of the early magic of our favorite vintage combo amplifiers, but the beefier material used here holds up better overall and can handle plenty of low-end.
