"The Royale Reverb" custom cab

I purchased this amp as a stand alone chassis, it was time to make a custom cab for it. 1/2" finger jointed pine construction, 3/4" birch ply baffle board. Early Marshall 1973x inspired dimensions (28" x 20" x 9"), but with an angled baffle board.
2 x UK Celestion G12M "Greenback" 25w 16ohm speakers for an 8ohm total load.
It's an amazing amp, cathode biased 30w 2 x EL34's with a GZ34 tube rectifier, 4 x 12AX7's for preamp, PI and reverb send and return duties. Big PT & OT iron. A mix of point-to-point and small turret board meticulous hand wiring, the last Bedrock amps made in the mid '90s.
