This is something you will not get with mass production companies that manufacture Amplifier Cabinets on CNC machines in a production line by people who probably do not care about who’s order they are working on, or the importance of what it means to a customer to to have their Fender Speaker or Custom Guitar Cabinet built by someone who takes pride in building a custom guitar amplifier cabinet like Fender Replacement Cabinets by Armadillo Amp works. I Also use animal glue to apply the covering just like in the vintage days.

 You will not find this with the majority of other Amplifier Cabinet manufacturers any longer.

Take a look at this glue I use for typical vintage amp restoration, it is like the old glue that Fender used but no longer does!!

Don’t you want amp restoration done with all possible elements being vintage correct?

Well the glue is a big part of it.  It also makes vintage amp restoration a bit more greener, due to the fact that is produced from natural substances, an will make your speaker cabinets sound better.

So whether used on a vintage amp restoration or Fender amplifier cabinets the glue is a big part of my equation for producing the best sounding speaker cabinets, and it is non toxic so it is safe for me to work with and not harmful to mother nature!  When it dries it has a very “woody” characteristic which drastically reduces cabinet dampening as compared to most commonly used glues for this type of application. One more important reason I use it is that it is “Vintage Correct” which makes for top notch amp restoration and does not change the vintage sound of the amplifier cabinet. I have  specialized in vintage amp restoration and Building Custom Fender Style Amplifier Cabinets for nearly two decades.  I have put together a collection of templates for most of the vintage Fender amplifier cabinets from early tweed amps up to the blackface and silverface amps. Great tone goes hand in hand with  custom and  replica Amplifier Cabinets.  Vintage tone has become a household name to most guitar players these days and can only truly be produced with a tube amplifier and a well built Custom Guitar Cabinet.  One look at all of the amp restoration and boutique amplifier companies will tell you this.  Tube amps have been a big part of my life for quite some time now and I could not conceive getting tone any other way, thanks to Gerald Weber of Kendrick Amplifiers, the Tweed King!  I apprenticed & worked for him for a few years back in the mid 1990′s and learned a lot about vintage amp restoration and vintage amps. Understanding the importance of a amplifier cabinets role in the tone equation is essential in building a good sounding amplifier. Unlike a conventional speaker cabinet, or an acoustical suspension cabinet, a vintage guitar cabinet gets a lot of its tone from the type of wood the cab is made out of.  Please stay in tune with this site to learn how to get good tone and tips on building your own guitar cabinet. I love playing my Fender Stratocasters through a great tube amp, there is no substitute for tone. There is nothing like solid pine speaker cabinets with a custom tube amp to make it sing! Don’t be fooled by simulations!  A Gibson Les Paul through a Vintage Marshall stack will also do the trick to…try putting your American and British Amplifiers together and you’ve really got a  tone monster, the possibilities are limitless!

I use Finger- Joints on all of my Fender Amplifier Cabinets.  This is the best joint for tonal quality, as you get more surface contact on this type of joint technique, you get glue contact on 4 faces of the joints!

This makes my amp restorations “vintage correct” as well it helps my custom cabinets sound  better.  I never use CNC machines to do my work and will never farm out my work overseas!  This is one area where quality cannot be compromised!  As well my vintage Fender cabinet restorations are top notch and you can be assured that your guitar amplifier is safe with me.

I have been into vintage guitar amplifier restoration and Fender Style Amplifier Cabinets for long enough to know the “tricks” to getting the best possible tone out of a cabinet; Using the correct type of wood that has been cured properly along with the best glues and joining techniques, as well as understanding sonic applications of cabinet angles and standing waves will produce a very vibrant and resonant cabinet that will complement the best of boutique and vintage amplifiers.  My hands on experience with many types of woods and styles of cabinets, along with all the vintage amp restoration that I have done has given me this knowledge, and I now pass it on to my customers in the form of hand madecustom and replica Fender Style Speaker & Amplifier Cabinets and top notch vintage amp restorations.
