Killer looking cab JB! You should be really proud of yourself.

Did you buy the screws with that thing around them (the silver ones on the back of the cab) them from MItre10? I need some for my cab?

Orange terror stamp arrived so tried out the cab with the superstrat, was farty and not quite right sounding with the low B tuning…. Bums.

Might have to look for another speaker.

I think I need to test it with another speaker just in case, but thinking now of maybe slipping a 10” in there (ooerrr vicar!!)
