I had some issues with customs office... Angry
...but now everything is cleared and my package is coming tomorrow.

I will redo the faceplate first.... cause I want to build a combo and the faceplate is designed for a head cab.
So it will take some time before I start building.

Anyway... record some clips if you can.

Noticed there's one up today under sound clips on the ceriatone website. Sounds nice, but I'll record a bit more of the amps variety. Yeah I'm in the same boat with the faceplate. Might build a small head box instead....

Off to get me a better soldering iron (got a cheap and nasty one atm but it does the job) and some other bits and bobs. Will probably start tonight. I didn't realize the eyelet board was going to be completely wired up so this is about 100x easier than I was first anticipating. It's a fantastic job, well packed, good components, nice footswitch. I'm pretty impressed.

There was a sticker on the box with the transformers in it that customs had opened the box - must have looked interesting Smiley

Got it assembled today, no large fires or things going bang (yet). Undoubtedly my fault it has a loud hum, and the tremolo just makes a clicking sound when I plug it in. It's the middle of the night so couldn't really crank it up, but it sounds pretty nice regardless of my bad wiring Smiley might get someone who actually knows what they're doing to have a look Smiley once I've sorted the niggles I'll post something up.

So how do you feel about your Prinzetones? I'm playing a Dizzy 30 now and love it but I miss the Fender cleans.

I would probably not build it myself, so what do you think Nik would say if I wanted him to make the master volume a post phase-inverter master volume and put Power Scaling in it?

And by the way, what kind of combo chassis would do? Would any of these be fine? http://www.tube-town.net/ttstore/index.php/cat/c337_TTC-Combos.html

Don't know if any of those would be OK,.... I'm building something from scratch.

I'm after 1x12" combo but as small as it can be.
I made a new faceplate for my amp. It's 3cm wider as the chassis (1,5cm on each side). My cab is going to be small but a little deeper with slightly slanted baffle.

Here you have some plans I made, you could send these to tubetown and perhaps they could build you one...
