Yes my hubby made this but I was soo proud that I had to post it for him.  He's a big music guy and plays  all sorts of instruments from piano to bagpipes ( theres nothing like a guy in a kilt Tongue) any hoo he decided one day to make his own amp. He was given an old PA system that he took apart and bought new pieces for and rewired and all that crazy stuff. he ordered speakers and then he built  the boxes and yes he even picked out the red...( I donated the other fabric for the speaker cabinet). He is still waiting for the chicken heads for the knobs, corner covers, a handle and some new labels. It sounds soo good and is soo very loud. ( I'm sure the nieghbors are happy Grin)
here it is....

some pics of the process...

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

they are knobs that when you look at them from the side they look like chicken heads (the part the points to the numbers looks like a beak) Cheesy

Wow! I'll be showing this to my husband. He has a couple dead amps in the closet, and I would love to have something that looks this good taking up space in the house!

I looks like the fabric is Japanese Yes?

Anyway, hope he's enjoying all the praise!

I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.
