    More DIY - Cab this time, Now with Added Head

    So 3 and a bit guitars and a guitar stand into this DIY thing its starting to take hold. Next Project is a DIY Cab.

    At some point I'm going to get myself a small Valve Head, DSL1, Vox or Blackstar probably, only ever muck around at home and its normally so bad I really don't need anyone hearing it.

    In prep for that I'm going to attempt to build a 1 x 12 cab, based on the dimensions of a Marshall MX112. Got my big green shed shopping list sorted for the weekend, and think I've decided on a Celestion Vintage 30, would like a blue but can't justify the price.

    As I go, if it doesn't turn into a dogs breakfast I'll put a few pics up here.

    I made a 1x12 open back and used a Celstion Green back in it. I've run my beheaded Vox VT20X, an Orange Micro Terror and my Egnator Rebel 20 into it , all sounded good to my untrained ears. Also made a huge 1x12 closed back with a Jensen Falcon in it. It has little more bass and mids in it

    @ Rossc0 Have you checked out my Valve Amp Head thread?, it's a diy Soldano SLO50 50 Watt amp head build project that I'm going to be working on this year.

    Hi Doc, yes I have. Only a cab this time, might get round to a head later if I feel brave.

    I've had some ozito tools for a dozen years and there still going strong. My Hammer drill ended up sitting in a bucket of water for ages(Don't ask), dried it out and it still works like a charm.

    Yeah, I think they're under-rated. The Ozito tools I have have all been great - my little cordless drill gets used literally every week, and has done for years. Didn't want to recommend the router without having tried it though

    I've got an Ozito cordless drill, and it does the job for me, lost count of the number of times I've used it, one thing though is I really should buy a few more rechargeable batteries for it so that as one goes flat I can swap it out for a fully-charged one and then put the flat one in the charger to charge-up overnight, nothing is worse than working on something and you've got that one last hole to drill and the battery pooches-out on you, forcing you to wait 24 hours while the battery re-charges.
