Restoration vs.Reproduction

When deciding on whether to buy an original cabinet, restore your original cabinet or purchasing a reproduction cabinet, here some things we've found in our 14 years of cabinet construction and refurbishment that you should consider:

  • The labor to properly and accurately restore an originalcabinet will most likely exceed the cost of a fresh new cabinet, usually by 10.00 or more. Even when an originally cab appear in decent shape we've foundthere is more issues under the skin. If you are a do-it -yourselfer then labor on a restore makes some sense.
  • Although we take great pains to restore the cabinet to its original shape there is no fix for aged plywood and the grade of plywood originally used. This can continue to cause internal noise and resonant buzzing even though all visible imperfections have been corrected. Also, the plywood has a tendency to delaminate internally due to moisture over 40-50 years of life.
  • A new cabinet will have the best chance to be tight, reliable and noise free .

Our conclusions and recommendations:

If you are a player with an original cabinet, especially a Portaflex cabinet, we recommend you store your old cabinet and go with a new cabinet for better and more consistent performance on the road and in the studio.

The main reasons to restore an old cabinet are for historical and sentimental reasons, which is why we will always continue to offer this service. and advice on how to do it yourself.
