    Hi
    I have a JTM45 chassis a friend of mine built from various parts - Ceriatone/Marstran/Sozo etc. KT66, RS trannies...

    I'm going to put this in a Bluesbreaker cab I'm having built by Tube Town in Germany. My go-to company for cabs and such.

    Tolex - would you choose Black Levant or Black Elephant for a traditional 60's look?

    Grill Cloth - Sorry, can't afford the EC Pinstrip at this moment and I guess I can live with the "Bluesbreaker" cloth

    Piping - Gold piping for the baffle and tolex seam.

    Speakers - Here comes the tricky part. Greenbacks or Golds?
    Thought about this for half a year and still can't decide.

    The Heritage Greenbacks are 20W each so a bit too weak maybe? I won't dime this amp, ever. Maybe more rock and less blues?

    The Golds - Expensive! Great chime.

    Although I love the Alnico tones from the Beano album I think I'm going more for the Peter Green and Udo Pipper tone.
    Greenbacks are used here





    OPINIONS AND SUGGESTIONS :huh

    :munch
