As part of the research into Brian May's legendary Deacy Amp, we had to disassemble (as much as we could) the original cabinet and take hundreds of measurements in order that we could recreate the cabinet in 3D AutoCad and onwards to the actual cabinets for the KAT Deacy Amp Replica.
Having managed to put together 100 Deacy Amplifier board kits, we thought it might also be nice to offer the cabinet kit too such that you can build your own Deacy Amps. The Deacy Cabinet is not a simple butt-jointed design, as the four corners have machined slots rebated into them such that long rectangular ply 'biscuits' can be glued-in to add strength. These slots are difficult to machine and require a bespoke jig to allow their accuracy. So, we decided that if we were to offer a kit of parts, they should be fully machined leaving only the assembly and gluing activities remaining.
The kit then includes the following:
Fully machined chipboard panels
Internal front and rear machined and drilled battens
External Sapele Veneer
Internal 'balancing' veneer
Rear screws and cup washers
Front baffle screws
Main Speaker mounting screws, washers and nuts
Please note: Printed Deacy Speaker Cloth is sold separately on this site.
