With that many speakers I wouldn’t worry about a partial obstruction.
My Sourmash cab arrived today. I have to say it is very nice. Just a little more wiring to do and I should be ready to go.
Man that's beautiful! If you don't mind me asking, how much money will you invested in the entire project at it's completion?
I stopped keeping track, but pretty close to $1300.00
I did order quite a few extra resistors, capacitors and wire just to stock up for future projects.
I am almost done now. Just have to connect the turret board and finish a couple connections to the filter caps. Shouldn't be much longer now if I get a little free time.
Whoa, more then I thought...was thinking more like $800 or so.. guess with the enclosure it gets pricey. Still beautiful....I might try a build one day. I used to spend hours and hours in my basement building glow fuel powered airplanes, built like 7 or 8. Had to quit because of the lung infections from the balsa wood dust! Looks like a fun project. Would love to hear how it sounds when complete!
First off, nice build you've got going. The name plates front and center is the way to go. As far as the cost of building your amp, who cares? I put about $1400 into my 2204 project. Like you, some of that cost was extra parts, but the education I received was priceless.
It's actually done! I love this thing! Very organic sounding. I will see about getting a sound cloud link of it in action. I think I am going to do a black flag JTM50 next.
Here is a clip I just made and uploaded to Sound Cloud. This was recorded with my Scarlett 6i6. I did double mic the cabs. I have a Sennheiser E609 hanging in front of a Greenback on the top cab and a Shure SM57 at a 45 degree angle on a Vintage 30 on the bottom cab. Both input levels are pretty equalized. No editing was done in the computer. Just recorded and uploaded. Using my cheap studio headphones the recording sounds a little lacking in treble to my ears, but in reality it is quite bright sounding. I might try listening with some earbuds to see if it changes much. I know the studio phones are supposed to be pretty neutral. Thanks for playing.
Sounds really good to me and looks great also!
Thanks MD. I've been on a bit of a quest. Hope to be more involved in the forum now.
Sounds great! Nice job
That tone is about what you might expect from an amp of this type. I’ve noticed that mine sound very similar. But once you record these in a band setting they sit pretty far back in the mix. It’s then that you realize why this design has all those brights on tap, you need them to get out in front of the bass and drums.
I kinda forgot to mention that I was running this through both pickups with lead on 8 and neck on about 5. If I throw it on bridge full volume it will cut.
That amp will respond very nicely to a clean boost like my choice, a Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster. The combination of that booster with my '77 2203 is frankly EPIC.
You've done nice work. That's an amp to be proud of and you can now start thinking about some mods to extend its range of tones even further.
That’s about the way that I run my Gibsons, too.
