    That looks pretty sweet! I was actually really considering them pretty heavy given that they're cheaper than Emperors, but decided to go with Emperor since once shipping got added in...they ended up being nearly identical in price and I could just drive to Chicago to pick up the Emperor hahaha. Out of curiosity, since you're out of Chicago, what made you go with Atlas? It'd be interesting to hear a comparison.

    Many of my friends have picked up these cabs in the past and I was always impressed by the work on them, they seem to have a certain attention to detail that the emperor cabs do not. Petras (the builder) is located in Colorado but he used to live in Chicago so he comes back during the holidays and brings peoples cabs with him, so I didn't have to pay shipping, I just threw him a tank of gas. Also the ability to customize every aspect of the cab was a huge factor. I got casters on mine where as I'm not sure you can with emperors. Petras will also do custom artwork and woodburning on the cabinets. Truly an artist and a great person to work with.
