Very nice style indeed, and the colors...
I can't seem to get out of the 'black-on-black' rut in my work.

Default 'True love lives' amp

Here is an amp I built for a friends wedding present. It is an old bakerlight radio, gutted then a EL84 PP amp built inside. Engraved on the front is a lyric from Radiohead - True love waits and the date.

It sounds good, not amazing but good enough for a gift I think. And it took quite a while to get it all together - I thought my metal work was bad, it turns out my wood work is even worse! It is a little rough around the edges to say the least.

Right, now that is done I can finally get to work on my #26 preamp. I really don't know where you guys get the time for all your projects, you must all be retired!

Cheers

Charlie

HiGHFLYiN9s,

A pretty striking amp, cool!

CSlee,

Nice build and very thoughtful. Hope your friends enjoy the amp, and most importantly their life together.

Love the colour combinations and the art deco logo! Which wood for the cheeks?

Thank you. Wedding is next weekend, I will be very glad to see the back of it!

Better give it one last clean before it gets packed up.
