A new Morgan Jones book you say. Nice result on the amp inspires me to get out the box of parts for my own Champ build, first to clean the shed.
i cant play guitar, but here's a sound clip, cant figure out how to post the actual video so here's the link,
Solid bit of kit, how many can stand on it?
you could probably rest a car on it, it's glued & screwed together, and it's just the right height to sit on,
just in case you have'nt noticed the volume knob goes to 78,!!!
Will do, just have to finish a LP and set up my son's tele. Your shed beats mine, just.
have'nt made an amp for a while, too busy, so i decided to make another 5c1 type thing, re-claimed transformer's, old maplin's s/s amp cab and chassis, and an old dress for the speaker cloth, i think it look's 1960' ish, old celestion speaker in place of the generic one that was fitted, it had a hole in it anyway,
well, eventually finished it, that took a while, busy with other thing's,
only problem is i've the dreded 60hz hum, but when i plug the guitar in the hum nearly disappear's, anyone have any idea what's going on, ??
did you get a fix?
dodgy input jack, not earthing when you unplug?
yes, fixed it, had it wired like this first,
realised i had the vol & input wire's crossing the s/s rectifier, moved the s/s rectifier over to near the HT transformer, like this, and everything was ok,
