    I've been wanting a different head cab for my TR K&M Custom for a long time.The original cab is fine but,I really dig the way the D head cabs look.
    So,I called Chad at Limited Resistance to get one.He builds all the Two-Rock cabs as well as his own.
    As luck would have it he said they have one next door at TR like I wanted.He just needed to install the aluminum strip.
    Now my amp has been madeover.
    Just had it retubed and biased and now with the new look it's almost like having a new amp.:p
    I'm now thinking of a custom cab for my TR Ruby.

    This is before.

    Looks great! Cool face-lift for you K&M Custom. The aluminum strip is a nice touch also. I could use a couple just like that one. I ordered a black suede head cab for my CR Sig, but it was the new style TR cabinet. I prefer the smaller, (height-wise), "old" style head cab. I never used it, and just left it in the box. Seeing yours inspires me to think about getting another.

    Rick,
    The reason they went to the taller cab for the CR models(1"taller IIRC)was there were some noise issues with the reverb pan being too close to the chassis.

    That is pretty sweet. I've been thinking about a custom cab for my Custom lately. Especially after seeing some of Mike Roberto's cabs. Would it be cool to PM ya to get some info on how to get one?

    You would just need to give TR a call to get the scoop.

    Sean,
    I can definitely see how there could be issues with the shorter cab. My power tubes, (tall bottle Sylvania's or 7581's), just about, or do touch the reverb tank bag on all of my heads, (except the Custom). I just prefer the look.

    Good idea! Chad built my custom TR cab too. He does great work and is very detail oriented. Check it out.

    You guys will get a good laugh at me for this.
    When I put the chassis is the new cab it butted up against the aluminun strip.I thought it had to go on top of the strip thus thinking the chassis didn't fit.:NUTS
    After a call I was informed it's supposed to be like that.:jo
    When the chassis is up against the strip it then lines up preferctly for the chassis screws.I didn't even bother to check if the holes were lined up as I was too pre occupied wondering why the chassis wouldn't fit on top of the strip.
    What a dumb ass I can be sometimes.:rotflmao
    Yes,I am a blonde.lol
