Hi folks, I found DIYaudio through links from other audio places and websearches related to multiway speakers and crossovers, but I saw this thread and thought members would appreciate a DIY effort of mine from ten years ago:

I have a bunch of guitar-building books, and the most influential was "Guitarmaking:Tradition and Technology" by Cumpiano and Natelson. I've tweaked it over the years and it's as playable and good-sounding as ever.

Well thankyou for adding it here.

Perhaps the Mods just needed a reminder about it.

Here is an update of my gear.

I installed a Celestion Vintage 30 in the lower sealed section and a Celestion "GreenBack" in the top semi open part.

Thats my '09 Gibson BFG Les Paul, I absolutely love this thing, practically plays itself.

I have some burlap to make a grill cloth for this, just got to get around to making a frame for it.

A zebra and a P90 in that Les Paul? Great, with respect to a grille for your cabinet, what about this stuff:

By the way, I dropped off all my project parts for the five string shortscale at a local guitarbuilder, with this as a result:

Plays like a dream, and sounds great. Still busy sorting out the final electronics though, proving a bit of a PITA (B1 buffer per pickup, filter per pickup, active mixing stage).

Default Envelope Shaper ?

It works fine but I really need an ADSR envelope module to shape the rhythm pulses. Does anyone have knowledge of a simple circuit that works off a 9V supply that would do the trick? All I can find are schematics for synthesizers and they use +/- 18V which is OK if you have access to a transformer. My vielle is portable and uses batteries; consumation has to be at a minimum.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Vielle

Your instrument looks real cool.

Not sure why I'm posting the Boss Slow Gear, but
The SG-1 has become a cult and highly collectable item (hence the $475 tag for a 2nd hand one).

It is an envelope shaper of sorts, check the net for what people think of it, it's a bit different.

There are clones of the SG-1 about (see PDF, the 3rd thumbnail, I changed the file extension to .ZIP to allow it to be uploaded, as it's quite big. If you want to look at it just change the file extension back to .PDF and open with Adobe reader as normal !).

Also check out diystompboxes.com as most of the stuff there is powered by 9 volts.

Cheers Simon...

475usd?!?!? And I thought the Spectrum was rare/expensive/overpriced:eBay link

that slow gear is something I'd like to build at one time, too many projects though (Meatball, Catalinbread SFT, the list goes on....).
