    Have a new tube amp incoming that I need a head cab for (its a Fender style, with upside down tubes and trannies). In thinking about it, it occured to me it that if cosmetics weren't important, it would be very convenient for a gigging amp to have a head cab that WAS a roadcase - basically a bombproof head cab with some removable covers for the front and back to allow for use, and optimally some shock insulation to allow tubes to survive bumps on the road. Anybody make something like that for reasonable coin, or have DIY'd one?

    Guess not. Guess I'll be first in the water.

    Makes sense to me and it's a pretty good idea IMO. This could work with speaker cabs too. In fact, I think Mesa has made speaker cabs this way.

    I like the idea. It sounds a bit like a rack mount head in a road rack.

    Peavey used to build an entire amp into a roadcase. I can't remember the model but it was an amp and a 4x12 in one box.
