Open Discussion / Re: What amp do you use to test/tune projects?

I've had this little Harmony solid state amp forever that was a bit of a turd till I put in a decent speaker and it sounds REALLY good.  Sounds great with a distortion box or booster and doesn't mask any circuit flaws or noises.

Rej, you've always been a source of inspiration just in attitude alone so it's really great to see you poke your head in the door even if to say "wtf".

That is easily the most wicked wire color I've ever encountered.

Open Discussion / New rig
« on: November 05, 2023, 04:57:47 PM »
This is kinda sad as a pedal freak but this is my new rig.  Blackstar Amped 2 is just stupid good.  Not a huge fan of the effects but nobody in the audience/congregation is going to ever notice the difference.  Compressor (either SheepyLove Squishy or pictured here the Trash Compactor) and a Line6 wireless.  No speakers on stage...XLR out.  Speakers...plug in and either 1w/20/100w.  Record out via stereo outs or USB.  I hate myself for lovin' you...

And of course I reserve the right to revisit this at any time but the Blackstar will be the nucleus.  Did I mention an effects loop?  Pre or post.

That's a good write up and nicely done build!  I hadn't really thought about it but it is a bit fiddly to set up.  On the real thing there's no channel switching so once you have a sound dialed in you stay there.  And like a Fender I don't think most people use the first channel.

Superb Chris.  I didn't realize that was discreet and real cool to see without a fleet of trimmers to go with all the transistors.
