  • Good cab design for studio use?

    I was thinking of building a slightly oversized 1x12 enclosure with a small removable back piece so that if ever wanted, they could mike the rear of the speaker. What are your thoughts and ideas of a good studio guitar enclosure?

    Small studio - small amp AND to protect hearing without excessive SPL.
    Something along the size and power of a Fender Champ* or a small studio/combo rig.
    Removable back panel is a good idea, as well as a kick back and/or decoupling stand.
    * Clapton recorded Layla on a Champ

      Ooohhhhh I like that kick back idea. What is a decoupling stand? This is a pretty nice studio with a lot of traffic. They have a 4x12 and a 2x12. One of wich I had built for them. We've recently been discussing the idea that a 1x12 in a studio will be more focused since there is no other surrounding noise and no phase cancelation from another speaker. I also am making the speakers "quick change". No grill on the cab. This way he can swap out a few of his favorites pretty easy.

        Check out Avatar Speakers Pro Guitar Monitors and their 1x12 models for ideas.

        You probably couldn't build one yourself for much less than they charge.

          Observe the elevation: this can help if the sound is too boomy.
          Some stands "kick-back" as well.

            Most cabs are simple - why not build 3 or 4? Just keep the amp in its own box and plug into the cab you want?. It would take up some room, but so would several extra drivers.
