Hey! This is my Mexican Fender 70′s currently for sale. I’m posting a few pics so potential buyers can take a look. Continue reading to see the rest of the pictures.
I’d like to post some pictures of my blonde Tele.
I was thinking about selling the guitar, but finally I’m probably just giving it a facelift, will get it refreted and the neck sanded to a more comfortable radius of 9,5 inches.
Continue reading for some additional pictures, I’ll add another post when the changes are made!
Hey!! This is a small hint I got from some of the guys at el34world site to avoid breathing rosin while soldering
For those like me who solder at home without much air flow inside the room , this could be a cheap and easy way to keep yourself out from the rosin fumes produced when soldering.
Long time no post. Been kinda busy these days but I’m fortunately back in the business.
Finally got the cornu’s sanded, puttied, and white lacquered. It’s been quite a pain in the a** but they turned out great!
Getting the baltic birch plywood prepared for lacquering is a tough job. Lacquer reveals each and every small imperfection in the wood, so to get professional results close care had to be taken when sanding and polishing, specially on corners and joints.
Finally some updates on my SpiralHorns! Received the pair of Fostex FE108EZ and some damping material couple of days ago. I’m new to Hifi full range drivers, and my first impression was that the banana pulp cone looked so thin and fragile!! On the other side, the HP shell diaphragm looked really cool! I couldn’t wait to hear how they sounded, but the front plate was not glued in place yet. For that reason I decided to set up a provisional scenario to get some initial listening impressions of the speakers. This is what I did, and a small preliminary review of my spiralhorns.
Part3 is soon yet to come with the finished speakers and final listening impressions!!
Here one of my latest guitar amps. Marshall 18Watt /w VVR. To be honest I hated the original layout of this amp. Placing the phase splitter tube socket between both first stage preamp tubes doesn’t make sense to me, and can lead to several oscillation problems in the tremolo channel if lead dress is not done properly. This amp produces a very specific sound, turn the volume up and you’ll get really good overdriven tones!!
Some time ago I decided to add a VVR to the amp, so this is a small guide on how I installed a variable voltage regulator, and a couple of things to bare in mind.
Before talking about VVR, a couple more images of the amp and some general specs.
Some pictures of my current project, a pair of spiral horn wall mounted speakers.
They’re made from 10mm void free baltic birch plywood, and 4mm okume.
Fullrange drivers still to be chosen. Compared to the size of a guitar each speaker is huge!! The good thing is that they won’t occupy too much space in the room, as they are wall mounted and barely 150 mm depth.
