The USA cabs were made in both rear load and front load. They have a red nut and no silver piping. All the salt and pepper rear load cabs will be USA cabs. The newer German cabs have silver piping, which is the dead give away when you are shopping for one, will have the silver jack plate, and will have German style hand writing. You can always tell as an American when a German wrote a serial number. Their 1's looks like 7's to us. It's a dead giveaway. I am not aware that any Diezel cabs are made in any country other than by Diezel in Germany at this point. I believe GC/MF/Sweetwat are all carrying the "new" style German cabs that have now been around and pretty much unchanged for the last 10 years.
This is all wrong.
All the Diezel cabs sold here in the US since around 2014 +/- have been built by Boutique Amps Distribution in LA, California and (same place where all the Friedman cabs are made). Diezel stopped shipping them over to the US due to transportation costs. Peter Stapfer has been to the BAD manufacturing facility and provided them with the specs to build them. Same wood used as the cabs sold in the EU. All current new Diezel cabs sold in the US are built in LA, CA at BAD... unless it is an older cab... more than say 2 years old. There were older US made cabs, back in the Uwe Salwender days, and these are the one you are referring to. I've had all of them... and I have a brand-new US made BAD FL 4X12 inbound. From what I hear, it will sound identical to a German made 4X12 (which I've also owned).
No, it's not all wrong. I was unaware that Diezel decided to once again, let someone here in the US build their German products. Bummer. Good for me, my 3 real German made cabs just got more valuable.
Makes sense though, now that all the big chains are carrying them you can get a "Diezel" cab for like $1100. Back when I was buying mine they were like $1500 and part of that was because of the cost of shipping.
Other than that, everything else I said is correct.
There are also German made cabs with a black jack plate/silver sticker on it... so... yeah.
You are splitting hairs to try and make yourself look smart? 2007ish cabs have all black jacks with silver lettering. Later cabs are still black with a silver sticker. I own both currently.
Again, you are splitting hairs and making things far to complicated for someone wanting the correct cab.
What should be focused on is that a buyer needs to look for 2 things. Silver piping and German numbers and letters. If the cab doesn't have those two things, it's a USA made knock off.
If you are such an expert and knows all things Diezel cabs, why don't you fill us in on the pre USA made German cabs. No one seems to know anything about them, but apparently Diezel shipped their cabs to the US before shutting that down and having the US distributor farm it out locally and had all the, now known as, the US built red nut and Salt & Pepper cabs. I'm talking late 90's early 2000's era.
It's like that deal all over again.
Dude. Chill. You were wrong. Get over it.
If you are talking about the 4X12 RL Cabs sold when Uwe was the distributor? Those were called the NYC cabs as the dimensions were different because Ultra-Sound in NYC speced them that way. Hence the NYC nickname and salt-n-pepper grill cloth. Built by Marvick Enclosures.
