I've got a repo 1-15 B/F showman cabinet with a standard baffle board. I would like to convert it to a tone ring set up. Are there baffle board plans available do this kind of conversion? I've seen repo tone-rings available in the past.

Thanks Dave

There's a guy on eBay who sells cabinet plans, including for the Showman 15" Tone Ring cab (link, no relation).

If you want it to be just like the original, the trick may be coming up with the metal ring that the speaker mounts to, if you don't already have that part.


Edit: Just found out Mojotone sells a reproduction 15" metal ring. It's pricey.

I have an old 1-15 Showman tone ring but not sure I'd part with it just yet.
