Armadillo primarily offers Fender Style Replacement Cabinets, cabinet parts like back panels and baffle boards, Custom Amplifier Cabinets & Design, and Vintage Amp Restorations. Armadillo doesn’t offer all the Marshall and Vox cabs it used to but a few are still avaliable, sorry for any inconvenience!
All custom amplifier cabinets are finger-jointed solid pine, handmade with no cnc. Fur and or baltic birch baffles and back panels. The vinyls, tolex, and tweeds are applied to your custom amplifier cabinets surface with only vintage style glue (horse or cake glue) like used on all Fender vintage amps. This type of glue when cured sounds much better than more modern glues and rubber cements, which are usually toxic and can dampen the tone of your custom amplifier cabinet!! All craftmanship is guaranteed as long as you own your cabinet.
Remember that new custom amplifier cabinets will compress, so tighten up all your hardware regularly to avoid buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Easy on them speaker nuts!!! Cabinet hardwares are also available for the Fender and Marshall style cabinets.
If you are looking for something that is not listed don’t worry, I can probably get it. I just stock the most common parts.
Here are illustrations of a custom amplifiers prototype that I redesigned for First Act, a large company out of Boston that has its own brand of musical instruments.
I redesigned the cabinets to be more servicable/userfriendly, plus made them much stronger, including finger-joints.
Here is what the final version ended up looking like that I sent back to First Act. The same look they came up with but a much better cabinet design that could withstand the overwhelming stress of being shipped all the way from China!
Here is a pretty rare Custom made Fender Wide Panel Deluxe Replica Cabinet in aged Tweed with Mohair Grill.
Note that the original grill is not a true sonic grill cloth so it will muffle your High End. You can use Oxblood as a good replacement.
Please check Pricing page for a description of each product along with prices. If you are in the market for a Fender amplifier or guitar you can browse amps and instruments and get price comparisons and find the best deals on amps and guitars right now!
All workmanship on all of my custom amplifier cabinets is guaranteed for the life of the cabinet. If you are not satisfied with your cabinet you can return it and I will refund the total cost of the cabinet.
This is my personal guarantee!
