Can't say for sure but looks like it's just a cosmetic change that some like better.

I believe it has to do with the fact that in the beginning Budda had their cabs made for them by different manufactures, maybe later they had them built in house.


The cabinets with the straight white piping debuted with the Superdrive 18 in early 2001. It was explained in a Budda newsletter back in the day.

My Verbmaster shipped in January or February of 2001 and has that cabinet.
