Hullo All.
I have advanced the project a bit further by getting the chassis up to working condition.
In this episode (this really feels like a never ending story!) I moved the experimental circuits from the bench mock ups into an integrated unit. On the way I found some of my design was rubbish, in the tone and voice circuits, but re organised those and was happy with the result when playing my Bass through it all.
At this point the chassis as useable but not tidy. I'll move on to the cabinet design now and fit the chassis in as well as a vented port driver most likely now a single 10" driver. I want to make the cab as light weight as possible so will make it from thin ply as the base material with strategic bracing. That is the opposite of normal Bass bin construction so we will see how I go.
I'll send the usual PDF to Brad.
Cheers Fred.
