    Chaos Machine - custom drill dimensions

    I went pure chaos (as did life, I never posted a build report!). Made the drill holes myself, and intentionally made everything tilted. The thin wood strips came from my woodworker mom-in-law, these were scraps from the shop. The wood covered up any poorly drilled holes. I wanted to try all...

    Tayda Enclosure shrink wrap issue

    The opposite advice of Isaac Hayes: "Just, you know, you can't put bread in a cold oven. You know, you've got to take your time. You've got to heat it up. So that's what, that's what I like to do with my music. I like to build it, and build it into a maddening, exciting crescendo." Different...

    Random pix

    We had some wicked wind storms out here in the Midwest last night. Anyone else in the area, hope you made it through the night in one piece! Here, I checked up on our wind rattled barn cat, Bergamot, when making sure everything was tied down.

    Metric Step Bit Recommendations?

    I have the DeWalt SAE bit that goes to 1/2" (12.7mm) - works fine enough for my builds. Here's an Bezos link, and you can get them easy at your hardware store, too. Additionally, I use a center punch to make sure my holes are dead on. Works pretty well for me.

    Peavey Backstage 30 - speaker surround gone, looking to replace

    Well, the amp came out in '77 - plenty of time for a speaker to be replaced, I suppose! I searched Google for answers, didn't come up with anything on these serial numbers. What do you think, @danfrank ?

    Peavey Backstage 30 - speaker surround gone, looking to replace

    All - After some extensive research, I went for a Retro 10 from WSG. I'll report back! @Coda - I'll probably pop on a new rubber surround edge to the old speaker, too. Will be nice to have a spare and a good project. Thanks for the boost of confidence.

    Peavey Backstage 30 - speaker surround gone, looking to replace

    Awesome, @Gordo - great company to check out. Appreciate it. Took off the old speaker and... Well, looky here! I still have some vintage gasket I could tape back together. :ROFLMAO: Reading the specs and the schematic (and testing the busted speaker), the replacement speaker needs to be rated...

    Peavey Backstage 30 - speaker surround gone, looking to replace

    Hey Folks - I got an old Peavey Backstage 30 from a pal, I'm going to use for pedal troubleshooting, bedroom noodling, and home-karaoke wail-a-thons. :cool: 🎤 My larger amp likes to stay at the band's practice space, so this is a great solution. The only problem? The speaker surround is...

    Repo Fuzz

    Amateur hour question for you, @Chuck D. Bones - I struggle with me LEDs. Do you rig those LEDs up like that yourself, or do you buy them wired in advance, like these from LMS?
