wow man, that's impressive. lovely sound, looks great too, although I woulda screwed the baffle plate in from the back so there'd be no screws showing on the speaker mesh. but that's a personal taste thing.

I installed it à la Boogie MKI/MKII : it is much more easy to install or remove in any situation, as there was not enough room at the back to do the same with the same ease, due to the compactness of the amp, which has the size of a Fender Pro-Junior, I recall it.

I lastly modified the booster : it gives +12dB supplementary gain and crispsness at the click of the footswitch without getting flabby in the bass range, instead of solely boosting the midrange with a lack of brilliance.

That's another story, indeed... Something like science-fiction...

A+!

very nice. I'm beginning a guitar amp project of my own. could you tell me what you used to cover the wood box ad explain the process for making the installation look so professional (in particular, the seams and corners).

thanks,

kuroguy

Well... Rewriting it in english langage would be too time-consuming, sorry...

1 - All the parts needed to cover the cabinet (grillcloth, vinyl TOLEX covering, feets, corners, special glue) comes from tubetown.de .

2 - I described the procedure of building (as best as I could) here, with numerous pictures showing the stages and tricks I used :

RIFF GAUCHE • Voir le sujet - NEW COMPACT COMBO AMP

3 - the TOLEX pattern I used on this amp is called "Green Levant" at tubetown.de .

4 - the remaining thing to have are : patience, enough room on the floor, good ruler and square , good sight, and a requested skillness, inevitably... But it is not as difficult as I though if you have the right tools and products.

A+!

Another two amps full DIY design and construction : the Orient-Express and the Val-King.

These are low power compact tube amps (5 Watts RMS clean sound in a 8" AlNiCo speaker), both with reverb (I integrated an EH Holy Grail Nano circuit inside - no tube there, sorry, because not enough room to built a quality tube reverb circuit), and the Orient-Express moreover having a tube tremolo.
