I have just joined a busy weekend gigging band, where my gorgeous big LSC ‘Blue Pig’ 2x12 combo excels in the wide variety of material covered. However, although no weakling, I am no longer a spring chicken and hauling the Pig around twice a week, albeit in a flight case, I do fear for my back. So, a quick email to Zilla Cabs here in the UK confirmed that they can build me a head cab in my choice of materials.

I initially considered a short head but was a little worried about the reduced airspace and any possible detrimental effect on cooling. Reading up on the (standard?) large head, I understand it is still a large piece of kit and so I thought the medium head would be a good compromise. I chose a black ‘Mesa-alike’ tolex to keep things simple and not flashy.

I will keep this thread updated when the cab arrives and let you know how it turned out.

Watch this space!
