Wassup yo. Fellow forum-troll and glam rocker lbj commissioned me to do some work for him.

Step 1: We go looking for a chassis and some transformers.

We find this guy on ebay. 200watt specced output transformer with a 500+vdc power transformer. Some holes drilled and stuff.



BAM!

Step 2: screws and some sockets

I PUT IN THE SCREWS. BUT I PUT IN THE SOCKETS FIRST. THE SCREWS GO INTO THE SOCKETS.



oh ya and then some shit got wired.

OVERHEAD SHOTZ



What's next...

step 3: power transformer

oh ya!



Then like magically all this stuff happened.



That's the rectifier and the first filter cap stage. Low esr capz. yum! bypassed with even better capz. double yum!

Then I took a nap.

zzzzzzzzz

zzzzzzzz


zzzzzzz


zzzzzzz

snooooreee

Wake up time !

Step 5: Potz! Step 5a: Holes!





Step 5B: Cheesecake!



Bias supply, filter caps, all of the power amp stage, Half power switch, pentode triode switch, individual bias adjust for each pair of tubes and 4 test points, yadda yadda yadda.

more napz.

napz.

snort. snore.

WAKE.

My only regret is running out of 18g solid wire. Ordered more. Will rewire. Too bad ptp is so hard to work with. Might need to put on pants.

Is that chassis NOS? If it's not, the tone will suffer, Min.

That wire better be at LEAST 30 years old.

I saw those pots on Digikey. They aren't NOS. Fail, Min.

Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Depends, I don't know what pickups go good with plywood. EMGs will make it sound like every other EMG guitar though.

i thought it would be cool to build myself an amp someday soon. then i saw this, and my dreams no longer exist. it was hard enough doing the wiring for a 2 tone 1 volume and 3 way switch guitar, and i dont even think i got that right

the clarostats the are sold on digikey are mexican made.

and allen bradley no longer exists.

in fact, i don't think you could find all the parts I used in this amp even if you tried.

I have it on good authority that the copper and silver ore in my wire is at least 1 million years old.

If you read PBT, you'll see that this is the only thing Min does. Make amps and jack off.

i sometimes take a break to read comics.

sometimes I'll do all 3 things at once.

I just ordered 200 feet of 18g solid wire so I can redo all that silly stranded wire.

If you need to kill a man with a 9v adapter? I say strangulate. Or swing the heavy end around and aim for the temple, all depends on your style.
