I'm wanting a 1X12 speaker cabinet made for a reasonable price. Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a builder in the Brantford-Hamilton area.

Derick Bell. You'll have to meet him in Toronto to pick it up though.

Derrick Bell would be my suggestion also.

Possibly Andrew at @Ayr Guitars might build the cab. I'm not sure about the tolexing. At least he is not far from Brantford.

Are you looking for something unique/specific? Usually not that hard to find used 1x12" cabs for a decent price.

I'd like a matching cabinet for my Allen Accomplice. So basically a Fender cabinet. I'd like something well built and good quality.
I see one on kijiji that is a 1x12 Fender cabinet in Kitchener that I may check out. Comes with a cheap Celestion speaker for $180. But I think it won't meet my criteria for "well built, good quality.

My friend has started building small cabs. I can deliver for you as well. I can PM contact info if you're interested.

Thanks It wouldn't hurt to get a quote. I haven't decided if I"m going this way yet but I am getting quotes.

Saw these guys at a guitar show once: Screamin Custom Guitar Cabinets
Beautiful cabs but IIRC, they were quite a bit more expensive than Derrick Bell's cabs. I have one made by Derrick. He apologized for taking a whole week to finish it :D
Yes so far I'm most interested in Derrick Bell. Kind of far but someone mentioned he'll meet you in TO?

That's correct. In my case, I met him in Etobicoke. It sounded like he made regular weekly(?) trips around the GTA.
Nice. I just need his contact info. I did a google search but didn't find any contact info. Theres a lot of Derrick Bell's that aren't him. Wouldn't have thought it a common name.
