Oddballs and Shorties - Lets see the tiny cabs!
« on: October 30, 2018, 09:19:56 am »
Hi there, I am looking for photos and images of smaller cabs out there that are either uncommon/rare or exceptionally small.

Before people start posting micro novelty cabs, I would like to restrict it to cabs that use full sized controls, or at least the 24mm buttons if need be. Attached are a few photos of random ones I have seen online. Some of the one's I've seen I can no longer find, and others I haven't seen, but this is where I am at. I like how some are just a box, nothing fancy, but unique at the same time. There was a few japanese ones I've seen out there, and wonder what else is out there.

TL:DR - Post some pics of small cabinets that use full sized controls.

Sure thing! Why not? Am just interested in cabs that take up minimal space but still are cool and fun. We can't all have a Showcase in the livingroom.

There are some pretty cool Dinosaur King conversions to JAMMA out there. Here's just one example.

Here's another one:


This guy did a MVS conversion:



I haven't seen FrancoB around here lately, but he has a couple of these cabinets he converted. He even cut his own monitor mount to support vertical orientation.






Very cute little cabinets, next best thing to obtaining a Capcom Mini Cute.

My 52" tall Tron with full size controls.  I'm not sure if you'd call this uncommon or rare, but here it is, if you think so.  :)

That is cool as heck. My lowboy I am working on is about 52" high. Doesn't look too dominating. Am thinking about another small cab build for my next one. Never really considered a scaled down classic cab with full sized controls. This looks cool.

As for the Dino-King conversions - I love those. Shame there aren't an abundance of them here like overseas. Same goes for the Capcom Mini Cute... but you can't deny that it lives up to the name lol.

I can't believe this thread hasn't been flooded with pictures of bartops that people put together from a kit and somehow feel proud of.
Acceptance of Zen philosophy is marred slightly by the nagging thought that if all things are interconnected, then all things must be in some way involved with Pauly Shore.

That Qbert is top notch!!

I'm glad there are cabs like this out there to be posted because I like Paige was worried that it'd be a bartop bonanza (not that there's anything wrong with em, just not what I want to see).

I see now that the smaller monitors have a place in these cabs, used to think they were too small, but they work well in appropriate sized homes. Are they hard to find in good shape? Most I see have lots of burn in from living in a cocktail or cabaret their whole life running the same games.

Any DIY designs that people have that are really odd yet still small and sit on the floor?

I'm angry that the thing that would anger me didn't happen!
