Amp head cabinet plans,radiator covers diy,free large playhouse plans - Within Minutes
I'm considering the idea of taking the amp out of my Traynor YGM-3 combo and building a head enclosure for it. That way I can match it up with other cabs and also use it in the original combo cabinet depending on the playing situation. Leaving enough airspace around the tubes of course would be important but I'll probably just copy the dimensions of the existing amp section.
You can see in the pic below the board that seperates the speaker section from the amp section. I built one of those cabs and covered it in red marshall tolex with black front and corner pieces and came up with a very striking head and speaker cabinet for not much money at all. Turn the whole cabinet over, but be careful if you cut relief in the top board to allow access to the knobs.
With a Trainwreck style cabinet, you'll spend twice that time or more getting a good finish.
