donbenjy Posted February 6, 2005 Report Share Posted February 6, 2005 hey, me and my mate (who paly guitar and bass respectivly) were wondering about building an amp each ourselves...we already have our cases so its jsut the circuit we want. its kinda a wacky project, they dont need 2 be real quality amps or anything, see the housing is gonna be the main attraction of these, we're not looknig for the best amp out there or anything. but we would want EQ controls OD channels but other than that we dont care. oh these are gonna be SS btw, if we used valves we'd break em with these cases (not sayin what they are, its a secret ) so is there a circuit around for an amp we can use? both bass and regular guitar? oh btw, what makes say, a diezel better than a shitty 15W combo? im kinda unclear about why amps can be crap, except the obvious power ratings. we're prolly gonna connect them 2 1x12W speaker each. we know a fair bit about electronics and are both good solderers so we're looking to see if there are schematics around that we can just print off, etch and solder to? the speakers we just wanna solder onto the board or use SIL/DILs for if thats possible. i dont kno alot about amp circuitry although i do mod my guitar a fair bit. im guessing that if you change the values of caps to make a bass amp circuit? oh, if theres any reason why this is a bad idea, just say cos, as i said, we dont know much about amp circuits. but they dont need 2 be reall good quality amps at all. cheers Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
