Had a great Friday-building-day: added the power supply board and switching boards. The 2-channel non-midi amplifier’s face-plates have arrived.
Aya Magedelijns is keeping up the good work… cannt wait to receive this cab!
Allready working on the next amp…. this time a non-midi 2 channel/3-voicing 50W head. Ordered the faceplates today with new fonts.
Settled on the turret board layout, the silver Marshall type knobs, mains input, power switch, black anodized hexagon screws and heater wiring. It is coming together nicely and it wont be long before this one will produce some tones.
Having fun with the turretboard puzzle!
But I did decide on the passive components. The whole preamp signal flow is going to be DALE military grade metal film series RN65D and VISHAY SPRAGUE orange drop 715P capacitors. Mainly for looks and stock reasons. Just started out working on the layout, ‘cus this aint no ordinary JTM45…
Done drilling the chassis, front and back and mounted the face plates. Still being indecisive about the knobs.
Tried a big Master Volume knob today. It really helps to achieve minute adjustments to the volume. The metal black ones (2nd photo, lower row on the left) are too big I am afraid.
