I love point to point wiring and tag boards, That bassman you built is just stunning.
I’ll pop up the La2a later, it’s all P2P and a lovely design.
Wow, I really want that Deluxe Reverb clone! Nice work! What did it cost you?
It cost me more to DIY than to buy new (approximately 1.5 times new, not counting time/labor). However, the Fender DRRI has PCB construction, cheaper components (speaker, iron, tubes, sockets, pots, etc). The DR amp I built has premium parts throughout and will still be kicking long after I am gone.
On the back panel you will notice two non-stock features:
(1) an extra fuse holder (on-board spare) in the spot where normally the polarity switch would be (I don’t have that on any of my amps … no death-caps either).
(2) NFB (negative feedback) defeat switch … for when you want just a bit more gnarly hair on the tone.
It sounds fantastic.
I built a wooden box…you crafted a Neve…
Guess people are not created equal
btw…looks Good !!
I DIYed this weekend on the remote unit. Cut a bunch of metal for a inverter mount (12vDc->120vAc), had a friend weld it up for me, painted, wired, installed and tested the new 2.8Kw power system.
Heading to folk feast to do some work this year. Month and a half to go…
I should be able to power amps and a small PA for other outdoor events. The old power system Xantrex (piece of junk junk junk) took a dump and died after 2.5 years. If you need DC to AC conversion, stay away from Xantrex. Magna Sine in the ticket for me now. This thing weighed something like 60lbs and needed a heavy duty mount.
Here are some piccies:
THE WELDING AND METAL WORK:
Based on rough calculations, I should be able to record off-grid for a minimum of 6-8 hours before having to start the genset.
