Model A 2×12″ cherry wood cabinet

The perfect matching low profile 2x12" cabinet for the JOAT series amplifiers - in open or closed back


 The Model A 2 x12″ Speaker Cabinet – Cherry wood.

Model A cabinets are available as open or closed back. All of our cabinets are dovetail joined and come in a few different woods.  When I first decided to make amps and cabinets I thought a distinctive look was in order so I began experimenting with natural finishes and stains. I always had an inkling that there are other woods out there that might make great sounding speaker cabinets aside from pine. 

Cherry is a lightweight but very hard wood with beautiful grain. They happen to make a sound that matches my amps perfectly.  A slightly “woodier” tone is produced that just speaks beautifully and looks amazing. Our Cherry cabinets are planed from 3/4 selected raw Cherry stock. We lightly seal and hand dye the raw cherry wood either Cherry Red or Midnight Blue, then final seal with multiple clear coats of satin lacquer.

For those skeptical about natural finish guitar amps – we’re not building furniture here!  Cherry wood constructed cabinets sound amazing and that is the first reason we make them – plus they look amazing.  I often remind players who tell me that they might be afraid to take such beautiful woodwork out to the stage that they will still look amazing once they earn a few dings. Just like guitars do.  In fact, these cabinets will likely look a lot better after 20 years than torn up tolex.  We also offer custom fitted padded canvas covers and fitted flight cases.

I played the JOAT 20RT through your speaker cabinet over the weekend and gotta say “you nailed it”. The tone quality is A+++, clear and transparent with as much bottom as I could ever want. It perfectly complements the head. I turned it up on its side, glides down. The speaker is so efficient that I needed very little push from the amp to get a really LOUD result. Makes me wonder what your coming 40 watt amp will do. Stadium performances??

The pickup selector switch on my ’68 Les has so much more of an effect when playing through your setup. I’ve never been able to get the tone change that I wanted with just the use of the PU selector until now.

I’ve also been meaning to tell you that your implementation of the B+ switch is artful. The way you’ve tied it to the lamp is the first time I’ve seen a really useful standby indicator. Kudos for that.

Looks like my other amplifiers will be idle most of the time. Wish I had yours before I bought all of the others.
