New Cabinet

I needed a new cabinet for a 12" speaker.
I got this exceptionally groovy new cabinet from Carl Johnson. $275 for these pretty cabinets? The price is more than reasonable. The quality of the workmanship is very sweet. They smell nice. And the head is an almost perfect fit for the Lil' Dawg Mutt amplifier. If you remove the plexiglass bottom plate the amp will slide in with just enough clearance for the tubes (the Mutt isn't as wide as the Johnson head cab but you'll see that I offset it so that the cab is balanced.)
New Carl Johnson cabinets. Yes, I've already put Tyrannosaurus Mouse amp badges on them.
Ironically the speaker inside costs more than the cabinets.
Celestion Alnico Blue -- eight ohms of pure love.
All you need are some 10-32 bolts (I used 7/8") to screw the speaker in and the 1/4" to spade lugs to connect the amp.
Another sexy thing about these cabinets is that you can make them open or closed back. I'm going to experiment with them closed back for a while.
