Title: Hello from Florida USA
Post by: mort on July 20, 2021, 04:42:57 PM
Hello all,

   I was asked to come introduce myself so here I am. I'm a hobby level guitar player and sometimes amp builder. I'm not a super strong tech but I have built 51 amps from scratch, no kits, of various types from Fender tweed era stuff, a few Marshall heads, couple AC15's, and a couple of sort of original circuits.

Just received an old A/DA Flanger that I'll post about in another thread. It's non-working and I have very very little experience with pedal type electronics. I'm stronger at putting things together than I am troubleshooting.

Here are a few photos of amps I've built, just to give an idea. I've been on a break from building for a couple of years but may get back to it sooner or later. For now I'm just having fun collecting old guitar gear and playing.

The first one is one of the last amps I built and one of 3 that have actual nice faceplates and a "look" to them. All the rest were done to the buyer's requests.
