More on the amp….
The Stowaway. A name I came up with because this will be my living room, behind the couch amp.
It’s a 3 watt 6V6 Fender(y) voiced amp. Controls are Bright, Volume, Treble, Bass, Mid, Tone Stack Bypass, Master. When I talked to Randy about it I asked for a Blackface/Tweed amp. Randy mentioned that it will do BF and get me in the Tweed realm, but not exactly. Good enough for me, since I didn’t want to increase the wattage. Plus a pedal is no problem.
I only got a few minutes with it. Can’t wait to see how far it does go.
The final assembly….
And last but not least. Depending on your opinion on the design this could be my final mistake
The second I put the panel up I realized I missed the top that lies against the face. D’oh!! It needs sanding and oil. I oiled it without sanding. Not good enough. I’ll have to sand a little. I’m in no rush now that I got to plug it in, but I will eventually straighten it out.
And here she is….
Throughout the entire process all I saw in regards to the cutouts was a gas mask. Last night while compiling the pics who do I see?……..Mickey Mouse!!
It’s fitting on so many levels.
I decided to wait and post a thread after things were all said and done. And that decision proved wise. This would have been torture to those who may have followed.
I apologize if the woodworking here makes you ill. I know there re some very skilled craftsman here. Some of the finger joints are cringe worthy.
All in all I am very happy with the cab. I would change a lot doing it over again. I have embraced the fact that it’s far from perfect a LONG time ago. It turned better than I pictured.
Hopefully this project can be a little inspiring to some.
Next up…..a speaker cab. Not sure when and I doubt it will be fancy, but I’m already looking forward to it.
