Google is your friend, and empty cabs are to be found on ebay too. Many on this board recommend Avatar cabs, ahd they will sell you empties.

The question is, why would you want one or more of these? Most of us are trying to "keep the weight down" on our functional gear so it is easier to haul to gigs and practices. Dummy cabs are just dead weight.

Those are probably real Marshall cabs that had their speakers removed and are just used for "looks".

Unless they do make dummy cabs like that, I would say that to get these on the cheap, but some of-brand cabs, sell or just trash the speakers, then buy a Marshall logo and stick it on the front. From on stage, doubt anyone could tell the difference.

These are multi-function. When the gig is over they double as a storage box to put other junk into for carry. It's a win-win.

Guys,

If I were looking for big-a** cabs like that, I would also be looking for some roadies. But, heck, maybe you already have roadies!:)

If it is to decorate, why not just use actual cabinets and wire them in. If I'm gonna have big ugly speaker cabs around the house, I want them able to make noise.

For the about the price of one dummy cab you could build a whole fake front with some particle board, tolex, and cheap grill cloth material (fabric store). You can buy replacement plastic Marshall or whatever emblems. Plus you don't have go full thickness and save a lot of wall space (unless you are looking for storage).

If you want empty cabs check eBay - there are quite few vendors that sell them covered or in raw wood. If you're not using them for speakers I'd go with particle board or pine.
