Rock'n Roll in a recycled enclosure
« on: January 14, 2022, 05:15:11 PM »
This one has been sitting on the "I should that one get finished heap" for a awhile too.
Here we are, all buttoned up now as well, in a recycled enclosure.
Had it previously drilled for something else, filled the holes with car body filler, dash of paint inside, slap a laser decal ob top with acrylic face plate.
It's the reason for the slightly misplaced holes that don't quite fit the labels, but hey, Rock' n Roll it does. Close enough.
Bob's your Uncle, Fanny is the Auntie.

The Thunderbird is a great ROG Marshall circuit on a 1776 fx board, does a big stack down to earth rock sound sure thing.
In front of it a Nga Viper treble boost to kick the guts into gear even more as pleased.
It rips for sure.

The Thunderbird can be a bit hissy with the 'Top' dialed up, but it's meant to be played and then you don't hear the hiss anymore, all you hear is roar.

Since I play a bright Tele style gat mainly I do have the 'Top' dial low anyway and that leeps the high end hiss in check.
The Naga Viper is on a home brew board, both can be switched independently with 1776 finish line relay boards.

Oh very nice, I was wondering about that board myself.
