    Vader Cabinets closing their doors...


    I have not been looking forward to making this statement but here it goes. After August 31st Vader Cabinets will be no more. I took a couple weeks of much needed time away to figure things out and really contemplate our future and it seems to be the only option that keeps coming back. There are a couple of reasons for my decision. First of all is obviously a poor economy but most of all, for those that don't know, I've been struggling with a spinal disease for the past 7 years that makes it hard to work day to day. This is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make but I sincerely think it is for the best. It has truly been an HONOR meeting and working with so many AMAZING musicians and building strong relationships with some of the most talented guitar players in the world!! We will honor any orders taken untill August 31st and after that our site will be shut down. Thank you to all the loyal Vader Cabinets customers we've had over the years for all your support! Cheers!

    Sad news... i know so many people who have loved their cabinets over the years.

    Spinal disease? Yikes. I was considering selling my Vader last week. Now I'm kind of glad I didn't.

    Wow. That's awful, for the builder and for the loss of a solid product.

    Fuck me, with all the builders of various guitar related items closing for less-than-honest reasons, it's an absolute shame to see one of the legitimate (and highly regarded ones, at that) shut down for such a kicked-in-the-cunt-by-life reasons.

    Bollocks, I always wanted a Vader too, this is going to make them more prohibitively expensive than they already were over here. Poor guy, hope he can lead a good life at least.

    I wanted a Vader cab for the longest time. It was Vaders that got me to look into 2x12's more. Sucks to hear about this.

    The custom cabs they made for Jungle Rot are so fucking sick in person. They made custom cabs for Suffo and GWAR too, but I think the JR ones are the sickest.
