Amplifier Discussion / Noisy cricket enclosure
« on: June 06, 2013, 10:16:12 AM »
So, I am thinking about making an enclosure with bits I have lying about. U have wood for the frame and will cover with some faux leather material.
For the control panel and base for veroboard, as well as mounting inputs. I was thinkin of using some old DVD player enclosures I have.

What would be a good "around the house" tool to cut them up?? As I need them squared off.

 Not sure of material, but it is rather thin metal.

Amplifier Discussion / "Easy" veroboard project check

I am trying to create my first guitar amp on a hopefully simple circuit!

Here is the schematic

Although, with a dummies guide, I am trying to learn about reading schematics, components etc.. I did cheat and found this veroboard layout

My question, is the veroboard layout correct??

I have done it exactly the same triple checked and referenced and all I get is a slight crackle when I turn the volume on my guitar!?!

The Newcomer's Forum / Circle Sound Amp - No Sound
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:23:29 AM »
First post so hello  :)

I brought a Circle Sound Amp head of ebay sold as spares and repairs. apparentyl from the 1960's  ::) Hoping I could fix it up simply enough! I have zero knowledge of the amplifier, so if any one does that would be great!

The issue with the amp is that it turns on and you can here the hum. Plugging the guitar and strumming a chord = nothing. Even with everything to the max.
Although slapping the pickup does produce a noise. Similar to what I would expect...

I have checked guitar cable, speaker cables etc so the problem I believe is with the head. I opened her up and there was a few badly soldered wires that may not have given a good connection. It was also a little dusty so I blasted that with compressed air. I made sure that all grounding points looked and felt good. Closed her up and turned her on and nothing had changed.

What would my next steps be?
Cheers
