I contacted a builder and it's possible. I'm talking a Blonde Bandmaster 6G7-A circuit in a Deluxe Reverb-sized cabinet with a 1x12". If I could add any custom options it would just be external bias measurement points.

What's missing from this or what would you change?

I'd build a DR style circuit in a DR cab with a beefy PT and OT running 6L6 power tubes. Reverb and Trem of course. 1-12". Add a bit of mids to the tone stack with no bright cap or switch.

The above is my #1 for gigging.

Sounds good. The only caveat is it has to have harmonic vibrato.

Another possibility: Have it in a compartmented cab with the option to enclose the rear of the speaker for when you need more thump and forward projection. Sort of like the convertible cabinets that give you a choice of open or closed back.

You'd need the top to remain open to allow the tubes & chassis to stay cool.



Whatever you decide to do, consider 3/4" ply that's been router-combed to remove a lot of the weight from the cab while still retaining the structural rigidity. This is a very practical thing to do and reduces weight.
