Pretty Cool Boards...

by Chris Randall

Got home today to find a package from Denmark in my mailbox. Turns out it was my PCBs for the GSSL and G1176 clones. These are really nice boards, well worth the money. (A total of 23 Eu. for both.) They come freeze-dry wrapped in this super-heavy-duty PCB condom, which is ribbed for her pleasure. Now to make a Mouser order. The resistors alone for the GSSL are over $50. I can't wait to see what the damage is on this bad boy when all is said and done.

However, I'm in the middle of about twenty projects, not the least of which is talking my wife out of a 50s space heater we have so I can turn it in to a guitar amp. (Has anyone here built the Ruby from RunOffGroove.com? If so, how does it sound?) This heater would make the flyest little amp, and I'm obsessing over it. My wife, for some reason I can't quite fathom, thinks it is better off being a heater because it's, like, winter and shit. Women.

The Ruby sounds swell. You'll like it, and it will take you like fifteen minutes to make.

I just ordered all the parts from Small Bear. Hopefully, I can find another heater at a thrift shop so I can have this one.

My new problem is that the hole in the front of the unit would be perfect for a 7" speaker. Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge, there isn't such a thing.

Whats that "Groove Tubes" *thing* in the background!?....grief and you complain about Mackie gear...I'm hoping its just some crummy catalogue they sent you or its ironicly being used as additional wrapping on you PCB's....otherwise my faith will have taken a dent. :-)
