    Here's a new 2x12 cab angled, ported I've just had made by Jeff at jdesigncabs.com.

    Jeff makes great great stuff.. I surprised I don't see more of it posted up here.

    I had Jeff build me a beautiful Blonde 1x12 cab for my Dr. Z RX ES a few years back. It was amazing. I actually ended up using it more than my Z-Best cab.

    My J Design 212 has set the standard of a great cab for me.

    Great value and construction

    Hey Josh,
    If you don't mind me asking....what speakers are you going to put in that cab?

    I have not fully decided yet. Either Wizards, Tonespotters, or Scumbacks. But I have the Scums in a standard Marshall 4x12 now and they could not possibly sound any better so I'll probably leave them there. I'm sure I'll start with Wizards as they are my default.

    Now that i have had this cab for a little while I gotta say It has become my go to cab. It sounds amazing. I'm running tonespotters in it and it just seems to handle anything. With my Fargen it sounds right, not like running a super reverb through a Marshall 4x12(lifeless with crappy bass). Yet with the Mad professor or Marshall it has all the thump of my standard size closed back 4x12. Best all around cab I've ever owned. Plus it's pretty small for a 4x12. I can take it to gigs where a normal 4x12 would get a dirty look and no one will notice. Jeff is the man!!

    Nice cab. On the 2x12... I've swapped the speakers some.. but not it sounds just amazing... Both closed and open. I've using it closed to be nice to our drummer. But a fabulous cab.

    Easy to transport. Great tones. Great craftmanship.

    The only thing I'd like is the Port to be locking vs Velcro. Which I'll do myself.

    :)

    Here's mine loaded with a Private Jack and a Wizard. Unreal cab that sounds killer with everything I've played through it so far.

    And I have the option to go fully or semi closed.

    Sorry for the crappy photos. Lens was cracked!

    That was cool working with the two of you to come up with this amp.

    Jeff's expert craftmanship combined with Ben's awesome products and service makes up the Dream Team of amplifiers. The amp Ben has ready for me is beyond my expectations and the only thing that rivals that is Ben's service and accomodation. It's a Fargen Mini-Plex MKII with a Heritage Greenback and VOVOX wiring.
