Its how you get them to smell right, that's the real secret.
is your land lady letting you build again?
She is, but my job isn't...six days a week, and the seventh is spent preparing for the next six.
I keep thinking I will get some time, but never do...life in Tokyo...
bloody jobs, you should start a line of guitars, make all of them one of a kind and sell them for a mint
This actually isn't a bad idea, Barnaby. You could find a job a little less demanding, plus rent a place without a landdragonlady, and you're good to go.
Hell, you could sell handmade amps, guitar and pickups. WE'LL be rich (speaking as your agent of course).
Being a multiple Ph.D. ... it takes some more than guts, to go full handy, I'd say But if Master B. goes this way, I'd know that someone has fulfilled a very valuable dream.
You know, Cain, that paskiainen (Poro knows! ) transaction costs theory rules the hobbyists away from that sweet sweet income flow
Don't think I haven't considered it!
Sadly, I couldn't guarantee either of the two elements needed for success:
1) Being able to produce guitars at a consistently high standard and
2) Being able to sell them for a reasonable amount
Therefore, it will have to remain a pipe dream for now. I'll keep working away slowly, however, and hope that, once day, I can reach a level as a builder where it makes sense to get a workshop going and produce a few instruments and other parts for sale.
I'd also actually like to learn to play the guitar one day...
If only we didn't have to eat!.
Hm... Top down designing seems to suggest a wooden vintage modern pure tube specialized headphone amp
I am in the same situation... The 18 watt clone and the hifi speakers are collecting dust.
At the same time, for hifi I have a tube preamp, transistor power amp for the Stax electrostatic headphones, and tube and hybrid poweramps for the various electrodynamic headphones (not for the speakers, only for the headphones) - and an insane amount of 832A, 6V6G, GT and GTAs, 6N2Pi, EF94s, E88CC and CCas, and all all the derivatives...
So why not a tube guitar amp purely for headphones?
I would totally love something like that! I'm more comfortable cranking up if I can contain it.
hey mate im just going to be lazy, i like everything about this guitar its a beauty, i just dont have time to like every post sorry
