Yes, very cool and innovative! I just hope it is not top heavy and I hope Furman doesn't block Mc's rising heat! :smile: :smile: :smile:

That is pretty neat, but does look dangerously top-heavy.

Where is the reverb tank? ...or is that blue pedal a Digitech reverb?

Top heavy, but its solid. My future plan is to get a smaller shock rack case with casters (6 or 8 space) to hold the fur man and mcintosh. I have a10 space amp rack case that is just too bulky for me. Once I get that new case, Ill put the 2x12 cab on top of the mcintosh.

The reverb tank keeps crapping out from time to time. Im using a digitech reverb that actually sounds really lush! I plan on getting the actual tank fixed, and also trying some other digital reverbs as well. The twin is modded with all the waldo mods and sounds incredible with my warmoth tiger!

Very cool! That's gonna turn out really NICE!
Do you have a front cover/speaker grill for when you transport the twin/effects? :smile: :smile: :smile:

I like it. Saving space is always a good thing for the gigging musician (if you don't have roadies).

Yeah I build similar rig. You might wanna re enforce either inside or on the outside those top corners of the cab on the backside right beneath the power transformers on the 2100. I'd hate to see those two corner joints give out on ya especially if thats a vintage cab. I used three screew L brackets on a shelf I build in my rack but I used a shelving system. Also for a door I used detactchable L shaped hinges that lift right out and a padlock flap on the right side. I built doors for both front and back.

Oh yes and heat is a factor with 2100. I used 2 cpu exhaust fans on the top of the driver card/heatsink side. Sucking the air out off the to bringing fresh air in through the front back and sides. You could also screw an intake fan on the front and an exhaust on the back. I've read nasty stories about peeps blocking the top of the screen on the card/heatsink side on our style chassis. Especially the top 2 output transformers on both sides which use thermal paste and in original production MC's I heard were skimpy on their factory dab of paste. I used silver paste from my local custom computer store. 10bucks a syringe would be more than enough.
Just remember the cooler any power supply,cpu's ,ram,output transisters,etc run ten times better in a cool well ventilated condition and avoid thermal breakdown,distortion,loss of clarity audio and worse component failure. Those heat sinks aren't ginormous for no reason. I def. wouldn't put anything on top of the 2100(highly advisable) especially something that might have ventilation holes on the bottom producing even more heat. I would even trust those 2 exhaust fans on the 2300 which are on the back since it has a roof. I would devise a fresh air intake somehow if I owned that model.
You do have one of the sweetest tones out of any other jerryist out there. What else do you have in there? Other than the boss stuff and the qtron which we all recognise.
Good job GProject.
