Looks like a SF Showman on top of those Showman cabs - I think he used Fender a lot in the studio (Voodoo Chile, Wind Cries Mary) so great to hear him pushing those Fenders for all they're worth!

Thanks Bob. Speaker should be here by next week. In the meantime, will get the Jensen reissue out and on eBay to get a few bucks...

Bob - speaker arrived Thursday, so after pulling the chassis was able to swap out the Jensen for the Kendrick. The speaker lead was soldered on, so I brought it over to my normal guitar/amp shop for that, but also so he could hear it with the new speaker; he knows the sound of that Jensen and was blown away (as was I) by the Blackframe Kendrick. Totally worth it! Amp now sings at 7-8 and breaks up beautifully. Will be using it in practice later this week and can't wait!

Bob, thanks again for your invaluable advice.

You're welcome Ned, and please keep me up to date. If we ever work together on Deluxe it's the 12" model that frosts the cake. I can build you a Deluxe that will leave you speechless for about a week.

My buddy sent this to me in a text a couple of minutes ago and I thought it belonged here and that Bob would like it:

Put the Vibrochamp to work tonight.  Sounds like a much larger amp. 
Has an edge to the sound that didn't sag even after 3 hours of playing.
Almost a brown sound, but not really.  Pretty darn happy with it so far. 

Need to change out the speaker I'm using though.
The one in the cab is an 8 ohm Warehouse G12C/S
I'm sure the amp will prefer the 4 ohm Warehouse G12C

It's very quiet, no hum/hiss/buzz/rattle.
Great work Bob.  Thank you!

I will report back after spending more time and trying different speakers out.

I will only post this link once because now we're getting a little too deep into the "secret sauce". PM Ned he'll give you his opinion on the one he just installed.

And thanks again Steve for the kind words.
