heating up the Weller… still doubting to go Hiwatt/Roccaforte style tagboard, or Marshall/Fender style turrets? Leaning towards the back turret board, as it looks nice in the black/silver style I am aiming for.
Look at these beautiful diagonal grains on the dove tails. Big thanks to Aya Magdelijns the cabinet maker for sending this update.
Checking out some knobs. I favor the silver Marshall style, but the simple classic black/white pointer knobs is more convenient to handle. (in an ordinary pine cabinet for now)
Aya Magdelijns is working on the Wengé cabinet. Wengé is a very tough hardwood and she is shaping it beautifully..
Yesterday did some work on this MTS SL+ module. it’s a great module, but the tonestack was a bit funky. Added a bit of gain and gain shaping, modded the tonestack and voilá .. a tone monster!
Super happy with these panels …. look at them!
Next job drilling the front and back chassis for all the controls.
Two chassis ready… and tomorrow the faceplates are coming… can’t wait!
Drilling more holes for the output transformer and installed some rubber gommets for the wires.
Working on the Chassis with the kids. Mounting the power transformer and tube sockets.
Totally thrilled today when Aya showed the wood for the cabinet. It’s a beautiful piece of Wengé featuring a perfect black grain.
