Hi,

  I am wondering if ppl would be interested in one of these small things?

  I have drawn something even smaller / more portable.

  Still handwired, using turret boards.

  I am trying to price it so it's less than the 450 price tag the TTs have, even when shipped.

  Thanks!

Nik

Hey Nik, If you give it some more headroom, that'll be a winner!

I just remembered, as we're talking toaster size amplifiers, how about something like that burriss bluesman amp? Wink

This would be very cool Nik. I've got a JCM 800 2204 from you that is incredible, but it'd be great to have something small and portable that I can take on public transport to rehearsals.

+1 here. If the size was kept small shipping would be lower as well.

I think you'd have a lot of interest in this - personally I think you should go for the metal cage type cabinet too as it's pretty easy to fit etc and looks cool!!

Are you thinking something with a Brit or USA voicing?

A TT sized 6L6 amp would get my vote at the price you're talking about..!!

Would this have a similar sound to an Orange amp, or just similar in size?

I would love to get an Orange sounding, low-watt Ceriatone amp for that kind of price.

+1 to this, also if there was a way to have a way to switch the voicing that would be sweet!!!

i love this idea

I am drawing up 15W OTS type amp now (EL84s)

it wont have the 3 voicing switch in front though (get the regular OTS for those! Smiley)

But it'd have channel switching etc.

yeah, metal cage would be the way.

I am excited. Well, we'll see. I like drawing it out, it's really relaxing.


Thanks!

sounds like an awesome idea, nik! any chance of having different tone stack options, not switchable, but maybe offering different versions of the mini ots, liek say, a bluesmaster tonestack, or an HRM tonestack, etc? or maybe a single 6V6 version?

i like this idea alot!

Hi,

Sure thing, we can try to have the same range as the regular OTS.

Perhaps, we release just 1 first, ie the regular OTS preamp, with 15W power.

These would still take abt same time to make (12-15hrs), so not sure abt releasing the whole gamut at the same time. Perhaps would be best if we do a batch of 20 amps in a go?

As for price point, I see the mass produced, PCB, amps have inched up a bit to 575-600.

I am trying to keep it within this range, plus a bit more for shipment.

All hand wired, all made with same love as the other amps, people! Smiley

On a side note -

I made some renovation to my house, and saw these beautiful laminated boards. They hold up quite well to abuse and heat. Hmm...maybe flat-pack type of cabinet?

Thanks!
