    Have any of you DRRI users switched to an aftermarket pine cab? If so, what has been the net results?

    I had the amp up for sale, but decided to keep it... especially after installing a WGS ET65 speaker. I'm looking at some different replacement cabs and I've noticed that the offerings are usually pine. Were the original "65s" housed in a pine cabinet?

    Thanks!

    Yes original Fender stuff was pine. I checked this with a few of my sources. Most of the cabs you'll get today via aftermarket will be birch most likely. However you can probably ask a builder for pine.

    Sour Mash cabs comes to mind, I'd give Bob a try. Here's a cool article you might like.

    Mojotone uses pine for cabs and birch/ply for the baffle and back panels.

    I've used Mather Amp Cabinet, John Mergili, Newell Amps and Rodgers Amplifiers for my builds. All use pine for their Fender cabs.

    This is an original 64 and I believe it is pine. The baffle is still press board.
