never heard any of the (mini) short scoops. i use full size scoops & EV T18's which are kind of a small scoop.
i would like to here the mini scoops some time but i'm a bit far away just to make a journey to shortmans for a listen.

Another builder has his own style of mini-scoops which he's added a few of his own trinkets to.
 
A few mates of mine prefers this size as they are much narrower than Shortmans design.

Toxic, both the pictures are exactly the same size cab.
 
They're about the same size as a 15'' scoop, but sounds better.

Both of you must have used a camera before ? I know you do Toxic, so you must understand angles, aperture, macro & so on.
 
Sunil, I know 100% you're on about the 2 large scoops either side of the 186 folded horn cab in Ultimate Sounds workshop, ain't it ? These pics are not them.
These are the short scoops you saw. The pic was just taken close up.
 
I'll put up the pics of the later ot the cut-off (mini-scoop) I collected.
 
You wanna see the mid-tops cabs...Criss no bombo.
 
You wanna here those scoops which are larger than a standard scoop loaded with a PD1850...
I think yourself would be frightened. It's a shame you couldn't come. I'll be back up there again soon.
 
A next thing, no pre-amp used, & it sounded serious.

There's a reggae sound system from back in the day from over the waters (Nth London) called "Gemi In-Ting Magic" Any of the old time ravers remember them ?
 
Well they have a few Mini Scoops now, they've scaled down a bit, & the amount of calls coming in regarding these, it seems as if a lot of sounds nowadays are using these mini's, due to their size & the way they perform, & parking up the full size scoops.
