Re: 45 SET

Yeah yeah, I know. :-) But sometimes things just sound better. I'd quite like to try a 26 driving the 45, but that gets a lot more complicated. I'm driven by detail and openness - yeah real hi fi words. Dont ask me to explain that! But this helps me make more sense of the melody, and pretty much eve...

Re: 45 SET

18 months ago I built this amp - time flies. I haven't done anything to it in that time except enjoy it. Marvellous. I keep meaning to box it up but then have nagging thoughts that I could make improvements. Improvements might just be differences though... The old article from Sound Practices includ...

Ah I see.

That's very light for mahogany.

Re: TG "The Loudspeaker" Build (Sort of)

Impressive. In a way it's a shame to have covered up mahogany, but the maple looks great. I take it the body is flat rather than gently curved?

A big lump of mahogany can't have been cheap? Is it preferred for guitars, or just something you had laying around?

:thumbright: to JCLPCB. And others like PCBWay. It has to be very simple point-to-point now for me to bother, it's easy enough, and satisfying, to draft a PCB. And so cheap.

I'm interested in your veneering technique when you get to that bit. I haven't done any yet but must try sometime.

Re: PSE EL84 Amplifier

No they're good points. I was thinking earlier how different the amps are - whilst they're both SETs they're quite different really. I don't remember the bass being compromised switching to the 45s, but I was using class D with the GM70s too as I'd found the passive crossover robbed life and detail....

Re: PSE EL84 Amplifier

But today if I wanted better bass I would follow Simon. There is no longer any point to building a valve bass amp. Last century the place my head was. Valves could do no wrong. But my single amps do kick out enough bass for my requirements. Quad 57’s are wide band enough for me and el34’s at 6 watt...

I lost mine, its greating.
It must be somewhere in my very many CDs, but goodness knows where

Re: ECL82 SE

Out of interest does anyone have a copy of the WAD ECL82 amp circuit? Nothing's turned up from a web search.
