Brian May style treble boost
« on: June 08, 2008, 01:17:26 AM »
Over the next week or so, I am going to make my brother in-law a birthday present. You may remember the Practice Amp I made for him last Christmas. Him being the guitarnut that he is, I am going for a treble boost for him. This particular one is supposed to mimic (not quite) the sound Brian May (from Queen) uses a lot.

He is a classic kind of rocker, so this maybe something he likes.

I will document as I go... from case to circuit.

Nah. I started it but ended up scraping it due to the new job (yeah, the one I just got laid off from).

I am going to restart making it now as a Christmas present instead. I spent the day cleaning the shop and re-organizing. I also started taking measurements for my ball turner. I hope to start this one in a few weeks.

Gutted about your Job.... Any luck with the new ones yet?
