New Thunderbird build

1

Weather has permitted me to get back out in the shop. Almost done with another Thunderbird. Pretty much same as the first one, but this one will be in a narrow panel tweed cabinet. Big 15" Jensen speaker.

That's a Supro style build? Volume/treble/bass -- all ya need

It is a Supro style build. Thunderbolt, but I use the unused half of the preamp and build a second channel. Voiced differently, you can mix them together making the amp a three trick pony.

It always amazes me the technical and artistic abilities of folks on this site. I successfully changed the wiper blades on my car this weekend and for me that was a major technological acheivement.

I shoehorned a big 'ol 15" Jensen C15N into this cab. Pretty tight, but everything fits.

Thanks Michael. The new owner is a Bay Area musician. Works in a studio and said he'll make a YouTube vid. Now THAT will be sweet!
