Johnnys cabs.... *Lots of progress*

Post by Bg »

Been tasked of providing cabs for Johnny Mullets new amp :) Getting parts is a mission during lockdown but I think we've done ok. Most parts arrived before from local sources.

Have been working on it now for a few weekends and the end is in sight. Cabs are about there, need to do a back cover and front for the Head. Anyway pics in abundance. Excuse the untidy, its been raining so photos inside only!

here we go... took a few pics yesterday, but they were mostly blurry for some reason :(

One that came out!
Image

action shot! Yes was about to do some Soddering as the americans like to say...
Image

wow! fully soddered!
Image

real british greenback!
Image

Is it an open back?
Image

or a closed back?
Image

Cab complete... Decent oversize, looking forward to hearing how it sounds.
Image

and another...
Image

Head cab, well underway. Definitely Marshall-esque ;)
Image

Most of the progress. Amp just placed in situ.
Image

Next steps....
Image

And there you go :)

That amp sounded really good into my 112 Mesa Wideboy cab with the Celestion Blue. The open back/closed back option is a good idea too.

Looking awesome.

That solder looks like it could use some love though.

That's why it's called 'soddering'. Phucking americans, wonder how they soldier on...

Geez, everyone's a critic. I've been soldering for the last 40 years and I don't need you young whippersnappers teaching me how to suck eggs etc blah blah blah :P

Master Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble, Vol2, Vol1 (Vol2 & Vol1 are pre-amp gain). Makes the amp very tinkerable!
