The sheldon cab is very similar to a Matamp 2x12, there about 24" square accross the front.

the vertical is on the drawing board, the horizontal one just a rough drawing for now.

Doh! I just posted a similar post in another thread ;)

Davey,

if you get a chance check out the Genz Benz G-Flex 2x12 cab. I tried one our today. It's ported and has a flexible baffle...OMG! It's an absolute monster of a cab. It sounds more like a 4x12 then a 2x12 because it kicks out so much low end (through the 4 ports at the bottom of the cab). It is also pretty tight and focused which makes it a pleasure to play. There was a Marshall rep in the store when I was noodling and he was really impressed with the cab also...

I'm gonna go for one at some stage (being a George Lynch fan helped that decision btw!!!  :lol: )
...J...

ports at the bottom? hmm

might be worth investigating..

i'd like to offer a bit more than just a standard 2x12 cab.. please do post more ideas/thoughts



and jay, part of the reason why i want to make at least a couple is.. there arent any (apart of cheap built shitety beringer ones here .. which are overpriced like hell) available here at all

I use a Marshall 1936 2x12, I like the side by side speakers because of the spread and a nice bottom end. I have another that I stack just so I can hear myself better, not much chance of using them sided by side as there aren't many stages wide enough in the pubs we play.
I opted for 2x12's as I live in a small flat and these are much easier to lug around and store.


you have so much nice gear, I want that PRS singlecut!

sorry sorry...

yes (cough, cough) i do believe that PRS singlecuts are worth nothing anymore, nobody likes them and the reason that PRS discontinued them is simply because they suck. big time. :wink:  :D

anyway, sorry about taking it off topic there...
