Marshall 2034 8x10 Speaker Cabinet

This vintage Marshall speaker cabinet came to us after enduring decades of rock-n-roll.  It was structurally weak, the original grille cloth was gone, much of the wood was damaged, and one of the original Celeston 7442 speakers was missing.  This restoration was one of our most extensive.  Please see the pictures of the process below.

Front view of cabinet before restoration.  Note the incorrect grille cloth and wood trim nailed to the front.
Side view of the cabinet prior to restoration.  The cabined had been spray painted to hide much of the damage.
Rear of the cabinet prior to restoration.  The back panel and tolex were all that was holding the cabinet together.
The baffle was removed exposing remnants of the original grille cloth.
The cabinet was stripped and all joints were re-glued.  The original glue applied to the joints had completely failed due to years of rough treatment.
Dragging the cabinet had worn away much of the lower rear edge.  This area was cut away in preparation for a wood splice.
New wood splice can be seen in place and the string groove has been cut.
Front view of completed restoration.  Proper tolex, grille cloth, and hardware installed.

Internal view showing the vintage Celestion 7442 speakers.  The missing speaker was replaced and all to them needed to be re-coned.  We re-coned them in house and made a new wiring loom.
