Red Bear Head Cabinet

   I've had this Red Bear combo amp since I was in high school.  However, years of living with a cat left the case pretty haggard and when the speaker started to crack, I thought of a way of saving the head unit.

    The combo uses a 30 watt tube amp to push a 12 inch Celestion.  I took the amp out and designed a case to be cut from spare pine.  I wanted to be creative with the face plate so I found some clip art and came up with a cool design to etch on to a piece of baltic birch using a laser cutter.

   I then stained everything and add a coating of poly to protect her.  I'm really happy the way this came out. I now use it with my 4 x 12 cabinet.  It's  little under powered but still has a great sound.
