Rockerverb Style Tube amp


Recommended Posts

Hello!

Recently, in my mind came the idea ..

Overdrive Rockerverb style channel- Rockerverb topology with some tone shaping modifications

Clean/crunch channel - I designed it a long time ago ..

Tubes: 4 x ecc83, 2 x 6v6

Front Panel :

Overdrive: Pre Gain, Post Gain, Sweep, Bass, Mid, Treble, Volume, Clean: Gain, Tone, Master Volume

and few switches to the channel configuration.

Today I made a preamp section :)

Yes this is my own design. I started to design and make guitars and guitar tube amps 9 years ago. Overdrive channel is a channel similar to the orange Rockerverb drive channel, but it has been modified to have more control of gain / drive response. Clean channel has been designed for guitarist Emil Gruca, and it is in his signature tube combo, I slightly modified the tonestack in this project.

Here are a few samples of clean channel :)

Thanks!

I made the front panel here like this: first, aluminum chassis was sand by water sandpaper, later brushed by several different metal brushes, I printed by laser printer labels on the foil and transfer the labels by heat gun and I painted transparent varnish. This method is very good because I can transfer whatever I want, and in any colors :)

I'll have to try that, thank you for the tip :) I have done the same thing but I used an iron to make the transfer. That also works but it's hard to get a really nice transfer that way (probably not hot enough).

I always use this foil http://www.folex.com/htm/580/en/X-10-0.htm?Article=47670

Viderekommen I tried a lot of methods to make the transfer. Iron is good to transfer the pcb. When you work with chassis you losse a lot of heat, Iron is too weak.

Today I installed a power transformer and speaker transformer, I finished wire clean channel and the inverter. I'm still waiting for one octal tube sockets :angry:

"I guess you will post a drive channel video soon?"

When amps will be ready I promise !

But recently I recorded with my friend a few samples of this preamp. Samples are recorded on a 1xEl84 Class A 5W amp. Gain was in the middle. Clean sound is turn down the volume on the guitar.

No effects only guitar -> cable -> Amps

I'll post if I find a sample with a higher gain

Some news :)

I finished the power Stage, added a choke in the power supply section. Power stage has switches between Class A / Class B and modification of the dynamic response and frequency of power stage.

I made a speaker cabinet and amp cabinet. Cabinets are made from plywood with a finger joints, I used Hide Glue.

    • Noen som har prøvd på det? Hva gjorde du og hvordan funka det?
    • Da kom pickupen fra Skottland også, en 1956 Höfner 1505 GR som ble solgt som ekstrautstyr fra Höfner i sin tid. Originalt hadde de 3 meter kabel, men her var kabelen kutta, så jeg skjøta den og satte i jack-input i gitarkroppen "nede til høyre." Innebygd volumbryter som ikke skrapa, og fungerer - så det var grunnen til at det ble denne. Så slipper man potter og flere hull og mer lodding. En forsiktig singlecoil, under 5 Ohm, så man må ta ned mastervolumen på Vox'en før man kobler inn en av Ibanezene 😉 Gitaren er fra 1959, det sto håndskrevet inne i lokket (fant det med speil, lommelykt og mobilkameraet) 19.2.59. Litt uheldig med dremelen da jeg kappa ut hakk i plekterbrettet, men men. Tok mål med brettet på, så måtte jeg flytte festene litt for å få spikrene dypere inn i hullene så brettet skulle sitte fast. Men det har sin egen sjarm det også. Da gjenstår det tidsriktig bridge, og samtidig polere opp bånd og rengjøre og muligens olje inn gripebrettet. Bestefars gamle gyngehest som jeg også har overtatt, og kabel fra PA-høyttaleren skjemmer bildet, men man ser helheten med pickupen likevel.
    • Jeg har en Peavey Valveking røramp. men plutselig virker ingen knapper, hverken volum eller tone kontroller. Men det er fortsatt lyd i den? Hva er feil? noen tips fra dere mottaes med takk. mvh Jan .  
    • Dette ble omsider greit, bestefars gamle (1958?) Höfner 455/S. Fikk lima halsen i vinter, har fått på ei midlertidig bridge, og den er rett i halsen og lettspilt. 010 Flatwoundstrenger. Venter nå på en 1956-modell floating pickup fra de britiske øyer, en 1505 GR med volumkontroll som spikres fast i gripebrettet. Plekterbrettet er også britisk og kosta sitt, men ble pent. Prøver å få tak på en bridge som ser ut som den originale, men det er lengre mellom de. Denne bridgen var dog lett å intonere, da det er bånd-biter som sitter i smale spor, og de kan tas løs og flyttes.
